How to Reference an Edited Book Using APA Style

When an edited book should be referenced the editor appears in the place where the author is usually cited.

According to the APA referencing style, the reference of an edited book should look like:

Editor’s Surname, INITIALS. (Ed.). (Year). Title of book. City, State abbreviation or country if relevant: Publisher

Let us see two examples of how an edited book should be referenced using the APA style:

Lambert, N.M. & McCombs, B. (Eds.). (1998). How students learn: Reforming schools through learner-centered education. Washington, DC: American Psychological Association

Noll, J.W. (Ed.). (2011). Taking sides: Clashing views on educational issues. New York, NY: McGraw-Hill

Both paraphrase and quotation in-text citations require to treat the editor(s) as the author(s) of the book.
