For most books, arrange information into three units, each followed by a period and one space:
Name the authors in order in which they are presented on the title page. Reverse the name of only the first author.
Cite only the first author whose name is listed last name and then first name followed by “et al.” (Latin for “and others”).
After the name or names, use the abbreviation “ed.” for “editor” or “eds.” for “editors.”
Begin with the title, since there is no author. Alphabetize the entry by the first word of the title other than a, an , or the.
Begin with the author and title, followed by the name of the editor. In this case the abbreviation “Ed.” means “Edited by,” so it is the same for one of multiple editors.
List the entry under the name of the author, not the translator. After the title, write “Trans.” (for “Translated by”) and the name of the translator.
List the entry under the name of the corporate author, even if it is also the name of the publisher.
If your list of works cited includes two or more works by the same author, use the author’s name only for the first entry. For the subsequent entries use three hyphens followed by a period. The three hyphens must stand for exactly the same name or names as in the preceding entry. List the titles in alphabetical order.
Articles in well-known dictionaries and encyclopedias are handled in abbreviated form. Simply list the author of the article (if there is one), the title of the article, the title of the reference work, the edition number, if any, and the date of the edition.
Volume and page numbers are not necessary because the entries are in alphabetical order and therefore are easy to locate. If a reference work is not well known, provide full publishing information as well.
Present the information in this order, with each item followed by a period: author of the selection; title of the selection; title of the anthology; editor of the anthology, preceded by “Ed.” (meaning “Edited by”); city, publisher, and date; page numbers on which the selection appears.
