Hi Lauren,

Sorry to keep you waiting on an answer to this. I've consulted the tome and it appears the way you reference a 'forwarder' is pretty much the same way you'd reference an 'author citing another author'.

For example, if Price wrote the forward to a book by Spencer, the In-text reference would be:

Price said "blah blah blah" (Spencer 2012, p.45)
Or
Price in her forward to The Neon Jockey  said "blah bah blah" (Spencer 2012, p.45)

For the Reference List it would be

Spencer, T. 2012, The Neon Jockey, Alabaster Press, Windhoek.

... Technically you can write
Spencer, T. 2012, The Neon Jockey, Alabaster Press, Windhoek. Forward by A. Price.

...but I would only recommend this if you are referencing the text once, with that one reference including a quote from the forward, other wise the mention of the forward becomes extraneous.

Hope this helps,

David @ UTS Library
