Referencing Reference Material

Encyclopaedias, subject dictionaries and dictionaries are usually alphabetically arranged, and may consist of many volumes. Attributing authorship is not always practical, especially if all the contributors are listed on the title page, and reference works are often known better by their titles than their authors.


IN-TEXT CITATION

According to the International Encyclopedia of Business and Management …. (1996).

… (Warner, 1996)

… (Heller, 1996: 2541)


FORMAT OF REFERENCING REFERENCE MATERIAL

It is easiest to cite reference material according to the title, as follows:

Title (in italics). Year. Place of publication: Publisher.


Under the name of the editor:

Editor’s Surname, Initials. ed. Year. Title. (in italics). Place of Publication: Publisher.


Under the name of the contributing author:

Author’s Surname, Initials. Date. ‘Title of contribution’. In: Editor’s Surname, Initials. ed(s). Title of reference work. (in italics). Place of publication: Publisher. Page numbers of individual contribution.
