If you are referencing an article that appears in a book, there are two possible ways to cite it. Which you choose will depend on whether you are using the Harvard or Vancouver referencing system.

Harvard:

There are a few different ways to cite an article in a book. The most common method is to use the Vancouver style.

The Vancouver style is typically used in biomedical journals. It is a numbered reference system. In Vancouver, each reference is given a number, and that number is then inserted into the text at the appropriate point.

So, if you were referencing the article “Coffee Roasts and Their Characteristics” in the book “The Complete Guide to Coffee”, you would insert the following into your text:

As Stuver and grind (1) point out, there are four main categories of coffee roasts…

Then, at the end of your paper, you would provide the full reference:

1. Stuver, S., & Grind, J. (1993). Coffee roasts and their characteristics. In The complete guide to coffee (pp. 37-49). New York: Simon & Schuster.
