Citing an Edition of a Book in APA Style
When a book has multiple editions, which edition should I include in my reference list?
Your reference list should include the edition of the book that you read and are relying on for your information.
You need to include references to more than one edition only if you read two or more editions of the same book and are using information from each one in your paper.
So where does the edition information go? Here’s an example:
|Smith, P. (2012). Cut to the chase: Online video editing and the
Wadsworth constant (3rd ed.). Washington, DC: E & K Publishing.
Note that because the edition information is not part of the title, it is not italicized.
