When the author and publisher are the same, use the word Author as the name of the publisher.
Alphabetize books with no author or editor by the first significant word in the title. In the in-text citation, use a few words of the title, or the whole title if it is short, in place of an author name.
Place information about editions, volume numbers, and page numbers (such as revised edition, volume number, or chapter page range) in parentheses following the title, with the period after the parentheses: (Rev. ed.) or (Vol. xx, pp. xxx-xxx). As with periodicals, for any non-routine information that is important for identification and retrieval, place a description of content in brackets following the title: [Brochure].
For major reference works with a large editorial board, you may list the name of the lead editor, followed by et al.
For books or chapters available only online, the electronic retrieval statement takes the place of the publisher location and name ( See example 19-22, 24 in your APA manual).
If no publication date is given, use (n.d.) in place of the year.
All citations need a hanging indent on all secondary lines.
