    Hi,

    I know that there are probably hundreds on threads similar to this.

    But I was wondering if somebody could help me with the format for referencing a book chapter, with the chapter being written by the same person as the overall book.

    On the internet, there is many different ways but all of which are for if the chapter has been written by someone other than the author.

    The format is - Havard Referencing.
    Thank you in advance.

    Thanks ever so much, but sorry if this sounds stupid but whats the whole "ed" about. For example, if the chapter I am wanting to reference is written by the same author overall. Sorry, I am just confused. Is it something that is always written?

    The book chapter I am trying to reference is "What is social development" from:

    Schaffer, H.R. (1996) Social Development. Oxford:Blackwell.

    I think it stands for editor(s) and I don't know tbh. If you're unsure, write the author's name twice.

    Good question. If I understand you correctly you are talking about referring to a chapter in a book in which lots of different authors write the different chapters. Then the book has an editor, and the editor has written some of the chapters. This means that when you write your reference the author's name and the editor's name are the same. So - follow the rules and just put the same name again! It might look odd, but it is correct.
    The best reference guide I've found and a one page guide to referencing can be found on my blog for my university students here:

    They didnt give you a course handbook or so?
    We had harvard explained to us in such boring depth, even classes on it! Its painful but necessary. Seems youve had your question answered but if you have anymore ive spent plenty of hours referencing.

    No, we haven't really been given any information on it, just supposed to look it up in our own time I am confident with the normal book references, etc, it was just how to reference a chapter that confused me!
    Thank you for your offer of help though
