I am having trouble with this one question...I can not find it in the 5th or 4th edition of the APA manual, or the Little Brown Compact Handbook. Here it is:

If a reference is a custom edition, what additional infornation is needed for the reference?

Please reply if you know. Thanks. I appreciate it.

By long established custom references to books and other stand-alone documents (nonperiodicals) give the place of publication followed by the name of the publisher in references. By custom references to articles in periodicals dispense with this information. But since an article is a part of a journal or magazine, page numbers (and other information) are needed to locate it. Both sets of information-the publisher and pages numbers-are needed to reference an article or chapter in an edited book. Unlike other elements in a reference, it is difficult to articulate a general rule. These practices are not unique to APA style. This is a universal convention, or custom, in research documentation.


APA Rule. The place of publication and publisher are given in references to free-standing works (nonperiodicals); the volume and page numbers for articles in journals or magazines; the full date and page numbers for articles in newspapers. Both publisher and page numbers are given in references to articles or chapters in books.

Books, and especially journal articles (the first two above), make up the bulk of references in the research literature. In the section above on titles it was pointed out that APA style places the titles of free-standing works in italics. This may be the title of a book, edited book, or the name of a journal, magazine or newspaper. The volume, issue, and page number information immediately follows, if relevant. For books, the place of publication and publisher is then added, as if an afterthought.

Note. There is no obvious explanation as to why APA style adds the abbreviation "pp." before the page numbers in newspapers and edited books, but not journals and magazines. This abbreviation is also used in all text citations when page numbers are cited (as when citing a direct quote).

will it be helpful?
Give the name of the institution for which the custom cover edition was developed, for example [University of Phoenix Custom Edition e-text].
