When you are including entries in your reference list, it is best to be as specific as possible. For instance, you may wish to specify which chapter of a book you are referring to. The proper method depends upon which citation style you are using. The Modern Language Association (MLA), American Psychological Association (APA) and Chicago Manual of Style all specify how to include specific chapters of unedited books in your reference list.

Format your reference entry in the following format if you are adhering to APA guidelines:

Author's Last Name, First Initial. (Year of Publication). Title of chapter. In Title of Book in italics (pp. page range). City of Publication: Publisher.

For example: Smith, R. (2009). Facets of China's economic recovery. In The Chinese Economic Miracle (pp. 146-194). Boston: Harvard Press.

Note that in APA style, the titles of lesser works such as chapters should only have the first letter capitalized, along with the first letters of any proper nouns.

Format your reference entry in the following format if you are adhering to MLA guidelines:

Author's Last Name, First Name. "Title of Chapter." Title of Book in italics. City, State of Publication: Publisher, Year of Publication. Page Range. Medium of Publication.

For example: Smith, Ryan. "Facets of China's Economic Recovery." The Chinese Economic Miracle. Boston, MA: Harvard Press, 2009. 146-194. Print.
