If you are writing an academic essay or research report, then you will be required to reference your sources in the correct citation style. This will depend on your subject and the college you're enrolled in. Many standard citation styles are available to you, each with slightly different formats. Here are three popular reference styles as examples to use for citation types when referencing the Merck Index in a Reference list, Works Cited page and Bibliography. It is important to note that instead of an author, the Merck Index is cited and referenced by its editor.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Cite the text in a reference list in the APA style format as follows:

    O'Neil, M.J., (Ed.). (2006). The Merck Index: An Encyclopedia of

    Chemicals, Drugs, and Biologicals (14th ed.). NJ: Merck.

    Title is in italics, but (14th ed.) is not italicised.

  2. 2

    Cite the text in MLA style in the Works Cited page using the following format:

    O'Neil, M.J., ed. The Merck Index: An Encyclopedia of Chemicals, Drugs, and Biologicals. 14th ed. New Jersey: Merck, 2006. Print

    Once again, the title is italicised, but '14th ed.' is not.

  3. 3

    Cite the text in the Bibliography, Chicago style; it would look like this:

    O'Neil, M.J., ed. The Merck Index: An Encyclopedia of Chemicals, Drugs, and Biologicals, 14th ed. New Jersey: Merck, 2006.

    Title is italicised; '14th ed.' is not.
