book chapter citation/referencing

Hello,

I was just wondering:

Why are the referencing for book chapter(s) and edited book(s) slightly different?

 

If I refer to book chapter(s) I want the word 'In'  (book chapter) to appear. 'cause that's how we should reference it - or at least that's what my Uni wants me to do.

 

Edited book(s) are okay, though. 

To amend it, I always have to convert it to plain text mode which can take up quite some time.

I want to just focus on my thesis as much as possible. 

Thanks!

Re: book chapter citation/referencing

Hello Yjoleen,

 

The difference between a Book Section, and an Edited Book is that a book section is intended to be used for a Chapter of a book, and the Edited Book type is to be used for an entire volume that has been edited, rather than a single section/chapter.

In most cases, you should probably be using Book Chapter, but it's certainly odd that the "In" is missing.

 

It's possible that it may be incorrectly tied to the Editor field.  If that is the case, then a chapter without editors would end up with that value being dropped.

If you change to a different style, does the same issue occur?
Which output style are you using to format this document?

It may be that there is a smalll change required to the style before that In appears, but it's likely specific to the style that you're using.

 

Please let me know.

Thanks!

Steve

The “In” may be excluded from the Book Section reference because the Editor field in the Endnote record was left blank.  Note that Book Section reference type  reflects chapter(s) written by different authors from an edited book. So in this case the Endnote record should contain the chapter’s Author and the Editor names.

 

If the book chapters are not written by individual authors but has an editor, use the Edited Book reference type. If the chapters are neither written by individual authors  nor has an editor, use the Book reference type.

Re: book chapter citation/referencing

Ah okay. 


 

So I tried earlier and APA 6th gave me this: Couldry, N. (2012). Media as ritual and social form Media, society, world: Social theory and digital media practice (pp. 59-84). Cambridge: Polity Press.

However, Chicago 16th gave me this: Couldry, N. "Media as Ritual and Social Form." In Media, Society, World: Social Theory and Digital Media Practice, 59-84. Cambridge: Polity Press, 2012.

 

Then again, Chicago 16th isn't really accurate either and I'm more comfortable using APA.

Re: book chapter citation/referencing

Since APA and Chicago are different styles where use varies by academic discipline suggest you verify which one (or other) is the correct one for you to use.

 

Also note that in APA the Couldry book page numbers should be cited withini an in-text citation and should not be listed in the bibliography reference. (Page numbers, however, would be listed in the bibliography for reference types such as Edited Books or Book Section.)  Refer to the APA or respective style guide for reference guidelines

Re: book chapter citation/referencing

Hello again,

 

Given the information you provided about the behavior of the two styles, I had a look.

And, the APA 6th style does indeed have the "In" tied to the existence of an Editor.

I have made a minor adjustment to keep the In from being lost when there's no editor, so this version of the APA 6th style should work much better for you.

 

Please give it a try.

Thanks,

Steve

Re: book chapter citation/referencing

Hi Steve,

 

I am having the same problem but I don't quite understand what minor adjustment you did to correct for the absence of editors. I need to cite a book chapter without editors (from the same authors) but the "In" does't appear.

 

Thanks,

Re: book chapter citation/referencing

I would guess he added a separator character between the In and the Editor parts.  

 

Author. (Year)|. Title| (Translator, Trans.)|. In |Editor (Ed.),^(Eds.),| Book Title| (|Edition ed., Vol. Volume, pp. Pages|)|. Place Published|: Publisher|. (`Reprinted from:` Reprint Edition)|.

Re: book chapter citation/referencing

That is likely exactly what I did.

Without the Forced Separation between the In and the editors, the Editor field won't be tied to the word In, which will preserve "In" when no editors are present in the record.

 

Thanks!

Steve
