How to Cite Reprinted Works in APA Style

Updated July 21, 2017

In-Text Citation

When using information from a reprinted book, include an in-text citation inside parentheses. Insert the author's last name, a comma, the original publication year, a backslash and the recent publication year; for example: (Doe, 1941/1998).

References Page

Include in-text citations of reprinted books on the References page. Begin with the author's last name, a comma, initials and a period. Put the recent publication year inside parentheses. Add a period. List the italicized title of the book in sentence case followed by a period. Next goes the publication location, a colon, the publisher and a period. Finish with "Original work published" and the year within parentheses; for instance: Doe, J. (1998). The most reprinted book in the world. New York: Big City Publishers. (Original work published 1941)
