Edited volume, contribution in an edited volume

In edited volumes or collective works, individual chapters/contributions/articles are written by different authors. Editors (which can also be institutions) compile these into a complete work. The individual contributions relate to a common theme and can treat it from different perspectives.

ZHAW swisscovery, for example, is suitable for searching for academic books (monographs, collective works, etc.).
