Citation Format for Anthologies and Compilations
When citing anthologies and compilations:
- the name of the editor or compiler should be followed by a comma, and then an abbreviation which indicates the function that the individual performed -- such as "ed." for editor, "comp." for compiler, or "trans." for tranlator
- when an individual is responsible for multiple functions, such as translating an compiling a book, list those functions in the order in which they are presented on the book's title page (e.g. "comp. and trans.")
Editor or Compiler's Last Name, First Name, function/s. Book Title. Publication City: Publisher Name, Year.
