Other contributors is the fourth core element. If someone other than the primary author (or editor) contributed to the source in a way that is relevant to your paper, you can identify that person by including this element.
- This element begins with a description of the other contributor. The descriptor is capitalized or not depending on the punctuation directly preceding it - if preceded by a comma, do not capitalize, if preceded by a period, do capitalize the first word. Some common descriptors include:
- adapted by
- directed by
- edited by
- illustrated by
- introduction by
- narrated by
- performance by
- translated by
- If you use information from an introduction, preface, foreword or afterword, begin the citation with the author of that piece.
- This element ends with a comma.
