How to cite reviews from the Buros Institute's Mental Measurements Yearbook

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Sixth Edition (2010) recommends that citations to articles or chapters from an edited book follow this format. (See page 202 for examples.)

Here is the suggested citation format for reviews obtained from The Mental Measurements Yearbook:

Last name, first initial of review author. (Publication year of MMY volume). [Review of the Name Of Test.] In name(s) of MMY editors, The edition mental measurements yearbook (pp. xxx-xxx). Lincoln, NE: Buros Institute of Mental Measurements.

NOTE: the author of the review and the publication year of the MMY edition are included in the citation, but the test author and publication date of the test itself do not appear.

When you locate a review in an MMY volume, note the volume number. Find that volume number in the samples below and that will be your citation template. You will need to fill in the name of the test review author and the name of the test being reviewed. The MMY publication date, the name(s) of editor(s), and the name of the MMY yearbook will be the same as the template.
