The instructions on this page concern references to edited books. NB! When citing edited books, the chapter is generally the entity you use as a source and that you refer to (see Book chapters).
If a DOI has been assigned to the book, include this number in the reference. If no DOI has been assigned and the book was accessed online from a nondatabase website, use the URL of the webpage from which it was retrieved. If the book was accessed in print or retrieved from an academic database, no URL is included.
Do not forget to consult the general instructions on how to write references according to APA (7th edition), including
