Book Chapter (in an edited book with no names on chapters) examples

If you are using an edited book which does not have author names linked to the chapters, then you can credit the editor of the book in your citation and reference. If you are using more than one chapter from this same text, you will need to differentiate your citations by using a and b after the year to clarify which chapters you are referring to, for example (Cox and Roper, 2005a, p.13).
