Consider the following:
- How many titles are listed?
- Is a publisher listed?
- Does it say where the item was published?
- Is a volume number present?
Book citations include one title (book title), the publisher, and where it was published. For example:
Arnqvist G., Rowe L. 2005. Sexual Conflict . Princeton (New Jersey): Princeton University Press.
Article citations include two titles (article title and publication title) and a volume number. Sometimes an issue number is included. For example:
Filmer, Deon, and Kinnon Scott. 2012. “Assessing Asset Indices.” Demography 49 (1): 359–92.
Book chapter citations include two titles (book title and chapter title), the publisher, and where it was published. For example:
Hambleton, Ronald K. 2005. “Cross-Cultural Adaptation of Educational and Psychological Tests: Theoretical and Methodological Issues.” In Adapting Educational and Psychological Tests for Cross-cultural Assessment , ed. Ronald K. Hambleton, Peter F. Merenda, and Charles D. Speilberger. Mahweh, NJ: Erlbaum.
