I have been stuck on this for a while. My concern is regarding the correct formatting of an in-text citation of a book.

I have to mention 3 things in one sentence: "titled", "edited by", and "published in". I know the general formatting, according to my guide (CMoS), is "Author1 (2016) finds that ..." or " ... (Author1 2016)." But in this particular sentence I am trying to include the details which are all important. The chapters in the book are authored by different authors. I will be talking about them individually later. I need to mention the editors of the book first.

A notable contribution to this literature is a book titled The Book (comma?) edited by Author1, Author2, and Author3 (comma?) and published in 2016.

Should the editors come before the title and the year of publication?

Also, is this acceptable:

A notable contribution to this literature is a book titled The Book (comma?) edited by Author1, Author2, and Author3 (2016) [I removed published in].

What is the right order of those things? I am also not sure about the use of those commas either. My guide says nothing about such formatting.

P.S: I know that generally the citation should be, as per CMoS, "Author 1, Author2, and Author3 (2016) concludes that ..."
