Some textbooks, such as the Canadian Fundamentals of Nursing, have different authors for each chapter and multiple editors for the whole book. When using such textbooks in assignments, you must cite and reference each chapter you use following these directions/example:
Author A. A., & Author, B. (Year of publication). Title of chapter in sentence-case: Capitalize first word of sentence and subtitle only. In P. A. Potter, A. G. Perry, P. A. Stockert, A. M. Hall, J. C. Ross-Kerr, M. J. Wood, B. J. Astle, & W. Duggleby (Eds.), Canadian fundamentals of nursing (5th ed., pp. first page of chapter-last page of chapter). Toronto, Canada: Elsevier.
Formatted example for chapter in the textbook
If your instructor tells you to cite and reference the whole book, follow these directions/example:
Editor, A. A. & Editor, B., & Editor, C. (Eds.). (Year of publication). Title of work in sentence case and italics: Capitalize first word of subtitle (Number of edition). City, State or Country: Publishing Company.
Formatted example for whole textbook
There are two options for citing this source in-text:
1) Last names of authors, year of publication, and page number(s) are placed in brackets at the end of the sentence:
...(Ross-Kerr & Grypma, 2014, p. 35).
NOTE: If there are more than 3 authors, refer to the guidelines below for how to cite in-text.
2) Integrated into the sentence with a signal phrase and narrative:
According to research described by Ross-Kerr and Grypma (2014), "..." (p. 35).
APA rules for in-text citation change depending on the number/type of author(s). Count the authors and follow the rule below:
Smith (the secondary source) refers to the ideas of Johnson (the original source):
> Option 1 - Johnson (2008) argued that the Calgary stampede is rooted in conservative political ideologies (as cited in Smith, 2013, pp. 102-103).
In the References list at the end of your assignment, only cite the source by Smith.
Holden et al. (the secondary source) cite multiple research studies (the original sources):
> Option 2 - An increasing amount of critical analysis and evidence have undermined "the notion that digital natives have a unique aptitude for digital technologies (Hargittai & Feldman, 2010; Jones & Czerniewicz, 2010; Hope, 2011)” (Holden et al., 2012, p. 18).
> Option 3 - Multiple research studies have undermined "the notion that digital natives have a unique aptitude for digital technologies" (Holden et al., 2012, p. 18).
In the References list at the end of your assignment, only cite the source by Holden et al.
