How do I reference an article in a Festschrift?


A Festschrift is a collection of articles published by a specific person during their lifetime. A Festschrift is, typically, collated for a retiring academic. 

To reference a specific article, use the Book / Section or chapter in book. Include these items:

  • Article title
  • Book title (i.e., Festschrift title)
  • Contributors
    • Author(s) of the article
    • Editor(s), only if one has been noted on the cover
  • Publication identifiers
    • Year published, section (i.e., article)
    • Year published, book
    • Page from/to for the article

To reference the entire work use: Book / Authored book.
