Citing print sources in a paper
In the bibliography include: author, title of book, chapter, or article (and page numbers if it’s a chapter or article), volume and issue number of journal if appropriate, date of publication, publisher or journal title. In a footnote citation, include the page number cited. If the source is a chapter in an edited collection, be sure to reference it by the author of the chapter first (the editor of the collection should also appear later in the body of the reference). When using footnotes, only include the long form the first time; use the short form thereafter.
If a print source was retrieved via JSTOR, Project Muse, or any other database of print sources like that, treat it as a print source only (including all the information above). As long as it initially appeared in print and you have the original page numbers, it is not necessary to provide any web information about how you retrieved it.
The easiest and most effective approach is to find an academic book or article that looks good to you and simply use the bibliography in it as a guide. You are safest with books published by university presses or scholarly journals.
