In APA style you cite the source that you have used, and provide information at the end of the reference if it is a reprint. A reprint means that it has been directly copied from another source (with permission).
It is a good idea to check the documentation on your vUWS site or ask your Unit Coordinator or tutor if there are any special instructions on how to reference a reading from the book of readings. Sometimes you may only be required to refer to the original text. Information on the original text is usually provided in your book of readings either in the contents page or at the beginning of the chapter/article.
Reprinted chapter/article/section in a book of readings
Reprinted ancient Greek/Roman texts and classical religious works.
If the reprint in your reader is from an ancient Greek or Roman text and you have been given no specific instructions except to use APA then provide an in text citation only. A reference list entry is not required
However if you have been instructed to supply a reference list entry this is how you would do it.
The example below can be used if you are only required to reference the original text.
Chapter, verse, line and other numbered and named parts of classical works are consistent across all editions and can be included in in-text citations.
