Chapter in an edited book

Below you will find guidance and examples of how to set out a footnote reference to a chapter in an edited book and in the bibliography.

Footnote

To use a footnote, put a superscript number into your text and then the footnote at the bottom of the page. 

Format:

Author, 'Chapter Title', in Editor (ed), Book Title (edition, Publisher | year) 

Example:

12 Justine Pila, ‘The Value of Authorship in the Digital Environment’ in William H Dutton and Paul W Jeffreys (eds), World Wide Research: Reshaping the Sciences and Humanities in the Century of Information (MIT Press 2010)‚Äč

Bibiliography

Format:

Author, 'Chapter Title', in Editor (ed), Book Title (edition, Publisher | year) 

Example:

Husak D, ‘Paternalism and Consent’ in FG Miller and A Wertheimer (eds), The Ethics of Consent: Theory and Practice (OUP 2010)
