Q. How do I reference Nursing Theories & Models?


Nursing Theories and Models are volumes in a multivolume work that contain republished journal articles.Use the Source information at the bottom of the first page of a chapter to create a reference.


Last, A.A. (Book Year). Title of chapter. In A. Editor & B. Editor. Title of book including volume after colon and subtitle after period (pp. #-#). Publisher. (Reprinted from "Title of original article even if it did not change," Year, Journal Name, Volume#[Issue#], originalpage#-originalpage#)

Reference example from Chapter 27 of Vol. 2:

Johnson, D.E. (2013). A philosophy of nursing. In F. Murphy & C. Smith. Nursing theories & models: Vol 2. Formal conceptualizations of nursing: Models and theories (pp. 91-97). Sage. (Reprinted from "A philosophy of nursing," 1959a, Nursing Outlook, 7[4], 198-200)


(Johnson, 1959/2013). 


Each of the volumes has its own title in addition to the series title. You can find this information on the title inside the volume. The volume title follows after the volume number, as illustrated above.

Note that 2 dates appear in the in-text citation:

publication year of original work/publication year of reprinted work
