Book chapters and entries in encyclopedias/dictionaries

The instructions in this section concern references to book chapters. References to chapters in authored books differ from those to chapters in edited books. In authored books the individual chapters have the same author(s) as the book as a whole, and the book is therefore the entity cited in the reference list whereas the chapter is indicated in the in-text reference only. The chapters of edited books, on the other hand, are written by different authors and are hence treated as separate entities in the reference list.
