Reference list and reference a paraphrase from other author in a book

Hi. Here I have several questions.
1. How do I reference a paraphrased sentence, for instance, in Jones book, he referenced' Time consume (Alta 2017)' and I want to quote' Time consume' what should I write in my intext reference and reference list?
2. In my assessment I referenced a lot from the same book, how many times should I write them in the reference list?
3. If the place of publisher is specified to like' 112 Doge Street, Melbourne VIC' should I write them all in the reference list?

Thanks for your questions Jiahui, here are our answers!

1.) For this quote you would talk about Alta in the text of your writing and then quote Jones, and also put Jones in your reference list. Eg: Alta says 'time consume' (Jones 2018)

2.) Even if you have mentioned one book a lot in your writing you only need to mention it once in the reference list.

3.) For the place - just use the city name - in this case Melbourne

Thanks!

Hi Jiahui - do you have the name of the book? I can try to look it up for you. Usually the publisher is mentioned within the book though, either on the spine of the book or in the first couple of pages. 

Thanks,

Hi the name of the books are 'Skills in clinical nursing' and 'Kozier and Erb's fundamental of nursing' , I'm not sure the publisher is Pearson Australia or Pearson education, and not sure the editors and the authors of the books. Thank you.

Hi Jiahui

Pearson Australia is listed just inside the covers as the publisher of both books. As for authors / editors, that is confusing with these books because the list of names on the cover of the book does not refer to them as editors, even though all the chapters are by different groups of people so clearly the names on the cover are editors, not authors. We have put examples for Kozier and Erb and another similar book into our referencing web pages for books.

In general, if a book is divided into chapters, each of which has a different set of authors listed, then the book is an edited book and the names on the cover are editors.

Hope this helps

Patrick
