Book chapters are often cited individually in bibliographies and databases.
Recognizing a chapter citation is important because:
This is NOT an example of a bibliography citation. For citation guidelines see the Citation Help Pathfinder.
Chapter Title--Not a book title, chapter within a book.
Chapter Author--Individual or individuals who wrote the chapter.
Book Title--Books composed of chapters written by other writers are known as anthologies. They have editors rather than authors. Search using the BOOK TITLE.
Book Editors (Ed.)--Editors often write the introduction, some chapters and edit the book. They are abbreviated as Ed or ed in citations.
Chapter Page Numbers--Refers to the chapter pages within a book.
Book Publication Place, Book Publisher, and Book Publication Date--Publication information for the book and therefore for the chapter.
