Style notes for this reference type

  • See Manual 14.100 and 14.76.
  • Specify the edition if it is not the first edition.
  • In the footnotes, do not use ‘p’ or ‘pp’ before the page numbers.
  • In the bibliography (but not the footnotes), invert the first author’s name (i.e. surname, given name).
  • In the bibliography, no page numbers are given for books. Give beginning and ending page numbers for book chapters.
  • Use the shortened form for second and subsequent footnotes.
  • For online books, include the DOI (or URL) as the last part of the citation and refer to section headings in lieu of page numbers.
