Citing Parts of Books in CSE Bibliographies

(CSE 8th; 29.3.7.2.10)

When citing content from longer sources (like books), it is often more valuable to cite a specific part (rather than all) of the of the work.

Book chapters or sections, tables, charts, graphs, photographs and appendices are all examples of parts of books that are useful. Book parts that are created by someone other than the author(s) of the book are considered contributions, and are cited differently.

Authors names are provided in the order they appear in the publication cited. For publications with 10 or fewer authors, all are listed in the citation. Any authors listed after the 10th are represented with "et al".
