Reference Style for the Handbook of Physiology

Titles for the Handbook of Physiology always have three parts: series, section, and volume. If the section or volume title is not included, then complete the title based on the information shown below. If these pages do not supply an answer, query the author.

City of publication is always Bethesda, MD unless otherwise noted.

The order of information after the publisher is year, section, volume, part, chapter, and page range. Year, section, volume, and page range must be stated. If part and chapter are missing, do not query, but do not delete if supplied.
