Book

: Edited (ed.) or compiled (comp.) book

Description: A book that is divided into chapters written by different authors

Notes

  • Use 'ed.' to indicate the editor of a work. Use 'eds' (with no full stop) for multiple editors.
  • When the editor's name is included within your sentence (not in brackets) place ed. in the brackets following their name. When the editor's name is in brackets, put ed. before their name.
  • When editors' names are included within your sentence (not in brackets) use the full spelling of 'and'. When their names are in brackets or in the reference list, use '&'. Note the use of 'eds' (no full stop) for multiple editors.
  • When there are 4 or more editors, only use the first editor's name in-text followed by the abbreviation et al. But include all names in the reference list.
