Individual book chapters should be cited if the chapter has a different author than the author/editor of the book. It should include:

Author(s) of chapter
Title of chapter
Title of book the chapter appears in
Name of editors (if any)
Number of name of edition (only if any other than the 1st)
Page numbers of the chapter
Place of publication
Name of publishing agency
Date of publication

Example:

Dubow, Eric F., and Laurie S. Miller. "Television Violence Viewing
and Aggressive Behavior." In Tuning in to Young Viewers: Social Science Perspectives on Television, ed. T.M. MacBeth, 117-147. Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage, 1996.

A citation is basically a reference to any published item and which has enough details for easy identification. There are many formats one can choose from such as MLA and APA. The main aim of citation is to credit information. To cite a chapter in a book one must bear in mind certain details. One must include the author's last name, then the author's initials. This should be followed by the Chapter Title, then the Book Title along with the Edition Number. The Editor's last name and his Initials should also be written down. The Publisher's name and the city it was published in should follow next, then the year, the volume number and Pagination should be printed. For example, Almlof, J.; Gropen, O. Relativistic Effects in Chemistry. In Reviews in Computational Chemistry Lipkowitz, K.B., Boyd, D.B., Eds.; VCH: New York, 1996; Vol. 8, pp 206-210.
