American Psychological Association (APA): Multivolume Work
Here is a representative example:
- Wilson, J. G., & Fraser, F. C. (Eds.). (1977-1978). Handbook of teratology (Vols. 1-4). New York: Plenum Press.
In listing a multivolume work, the publication dates should be inclusive for all volumes. The volumes should be identified, in parentheses, immediately following the book title. Do not use a period between the title and the parenthetical information; close the entire title, including the volume information, with a period.
In text, the parenthetical date citation should correspond to the publication dates: (Wilson & Fraser, 1977-1978).
For more specific information, consult the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (Fifth Edition) or see the APA style website.
