American Psychological Association (APA): Edited Collections
When an editor or editors are listed for a text, a typical reference entry will appear as follows:
- Higgins, J. (Ed.). (1988). Psychology. New York: Norton.
- Grice, H. P., & Gregory, R. L. (Eds.). (1968). Early language development. New York: McGraw-Hill.
Begin with the last name of the editor(s) followed by the initials. The abbreviation "Ed." or "Eds." follows in parentheses. The date of publication comes next, also in parentheses. The title should be italicized, but only the first word should be capitalized. The place of publication comes next, followed by a colon, then the publisher.
For more specific information, consult the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (Fifth Edition) or see the APA style website.
