APA 7th Edition Referencing Guide1

A Wintec Library guide to referencing in APA 7th edition style

Referencing a republished book

A republished book is one that has gone out of print and subsequently been republished—usually by a different publisher and sometimes as part of an anthology.

When referencing a republished book, include the original date of publication at the end of the reference list entry. In-text citations should include both the republished and original publication dates (e.g., 1968/2012).

For example:

Author, A. (Republication date). Title of book in italic sentence case (ed. &/or Vol.). Publisher. (Original publication date)

Russell, B.  (1998). The problems of philosophy (2nd ed.). Oxford University Press. (Original work published 1912)


The original publication date is included in parentheses outside the final punctuation of the reference list entry and is not followed by a full stop.


Reference list entry
