A. A. is the author (Year). Work's title Publisher is the location. If, on the other hand, the chapter is from a book in which each chapter was written by a different author (and the entire thing was put together by an editor), then offer a separate reference for each chapter that you utilized. For example: (Altschuler, Blum) 1997. Chapter 1: This is a good chapter. (Zukofsky, Lang) 1998. Chapter 2: My second choice after Altschuler and Blum.
A. A. Author and B. B. Author (Year of publication). The chapter's title A. A. Editor and B. B. Editor (Eds. ), book title (chapter pages). Publisher is the location. Example: A. Priest, J. Doctor, & M. Nurse (2000). Health care for the elderly. New York, NY: McGraw-Hill.
Citing a chapter in a book that has been published recently tends to be difficult because most books have a limited life span. Therefore, if you are going to refer to such a book, it is best to check to see whether there are any new editions being published or not. If there are no new editions, then the book may be considered outdated and some other reference may need to be made instead.
The best way to refer to a chapter in a book is to include the author's name, the title of the book, and the number of the chapter immediately after the sentence that refers to it. For example, "The health care system in United States needs reform" (Priest 2000, p. 367).
If the book you are referring to is very old but there are still chapters in it that are relevant today, you can still cite them correctly by including the author's name, the title of the book, and the year it was published before the date of your paper.

An article or chapter in a book that has been edited
To be composed of:
The author or editor, book title, publisher, place of publishing, and year of release are the bare minimum for a book. In the names of publishers, leave off phrases like "business," "inc.," "publisher," and "press." In book references, some ACS publications include the chapter title, while others do not. If there is no chapter title, use the abbreviation from the previous entry.
For example, an article by Kowalczyk et al. (2010) was published in the journal Organic Letters. That article made use of material from three other studies: Baur and Assmann (1989), Chen and Wang (1998), and Lin and Wu (2001). The authors cited these works as follows: Kowalczyk (2010), Baur and Assmann (1989), Chen and Wang (1998), and Lin and Wu (2001).
If you are citing only one book, it is sufficient to list it with its abbreviated title followed by the year of publication in parentheses. For example, Anisimov (1997) would be the only entry needed to reference this work.
In general, include the name of the author's organization, if any. This could be the company they work for, an association, or another type of group. If there is more than one author, separate their names with a comma. For example, Anisimov, Alexander would need to be cited as Anisimov, A.
Use the author of the chapter, not the editor of the book, in the citation. When the author's name is not given in the text, the citation includes the author's name in brackets and the year of publication. It was, for example, stressed that citations in the text should be consistent (Jones, 2017).
