This information is for works where an entire chapter of an edited book was previously published elsewhere. If someone was simply quoting the work of another person, you would treat it as a secondary citation.
Book chapters reprinted in anthologies
For anthologies and readers that pull together reprinted chapters from previous works, you use a kind of double citation. It's a bit like citing a chapter of an edited book, but because the chapter wasn't written for that book, you also provide the original context.
In text, you use a double date:
Green (1970/2022) noted that...
Blah blah blah (Green, 1970/2022).
The first date is the original date of publication, the second date is the date of the source you've actually used.
In your reference list, you don't use the double date. You give the details as you would for a chapter of an edited book and the information needed to find the source you used (including the date of the anthology and the title of the "chapter" the editors have given you). Then, after the "normal" details for a book chapter, you include the details for the original source in brackets:
Green, J. (2022). Jean Green's metaphorical gardens: From "The garden as metaphor". In A. White (Ed.). Describing place: An evolution of spatial awareness (pp. 117-128). Tempo Cadence Press. (Reprinted from The garden as a metaphor, pp. 45-56, by J. Green, 1970, Mason Bright)
NB: The pattern in the brackets is quite different to the pattern in the "proper" citation. The pattern is Title, page range (use pp.), book author, year, publisher - everything is separated by a comma and there's no full stop at the end.
If the original book was an edited book, then you would use the editor as the "author" of the original book and at the Ed. after their name:
Green, J. (2022). Jean Green's metaphorical gardens: From "The garden as metaphor". In A. White (Ed.). Describing place: An evolution of spatial awareness (pp. 117-128). Tempo Cadence Press. (Reprinted from Gardening and letters: Colonial letters home, pp. 45-56, by T. Brown, Ed., 1970, Mason Bright)
With works that were originally published as chapters of other books, don't include the original chapter title in the "reprinted from" note (because the page numbers are sufficient to identify the chapter).
Articles reprinted as chapters
You do something similar for a journal article that has been reprinted in a later anthology. Give the double date in text, and give a "normal" book chapter citation for the source you have used followed by a "reprinted from" note at the end:
Green, J. (2022). The garden as a metaphor: Jean Green on colonial gardens. In A. White (Ed.). Describing place: An evolution of spatial awareness (pp. 117-128). Tempo Cadence Press. (Reprinted from "The garden as a metaphor", 1970, Southern Stories, 9, 45-56, http://doi.org/10.1244/4522mb)
N.B.: In book chapters that were originally journal articles, the pattern is different in the "Reprinted from" note: "article title", year, journal title, volume[issue], page range, url or doi - still with all information separted by commas and no full stop at the end.
In the reprinted note for a journal article,
- you include the article title in "quotation marks" - even if it's exactly the same as the title of the chapter in the anthology you are using
- you don't use pp. in front of the page numbers (because APA treats page numbers differently in book chapters vs journal articles)
- you put the issue number in [square brackets] because APA nests brackets by alternating between ( ) and [ ] - as this information is already in a set of round brackets, the issue number needs to be in square brackets: (9, 46-56)
- you don't include the author names for the original journal article (because you wouldn't use it to find the journal in a library catalogue, but you do need the author/editors name to help find the book in a catalogue).
