This is a separately identified part of a book, such as a chapter or section, which has been written by the author(s)/editor(s) of the book itself. For parts which have been contributed by others, see Book Contribution, below.

Numeration of part: If the part being referenced is one volume of a multivolume book, its number is given in Arabic, as “Vol.2.” Volume numbers follow immediately after the book title and edition. If the part being referenced is a chapter, section, appendix, figure, etc., it is identified as such with any accompanying number (given in Arabic) or letter, as “Chapter 2,” “Appendix B,” or “Figure 10.” Capitalize only the first word and proper nouns. Chapter, section, appendices, figures, etc. numeration follows immediately after the publication information.
Title of part: If the part has a title, it follows the numeration, as “Vol.2, Immunology” or “Chapter 4, History.”
Pagination: Inclusive pages of the chapter or part, with numbers not repeated, as “p.123-4” for pages 123 to 124. Roman numerals used as page numbers are retained, as “p. xxvi-xxvii.” If an entire volume is being referenced, pagination is omitted.
