I am adjusting the references to a paper due to be submitted to a journal from the Nature family (Nature Communications more precisely) and I can't find any trustworthy suggestions about the proper format of a reference list entry for a chapter in an edited multi-author volume. The NComms page only has an example for a chapter in a book by the same author: "For book citations, the publisher and city of publication are required. Example: Jones, R. A. L. Soft Machines: Nanotechnology and Life Ch. 3 (Oxford Univ. Press, Oxford, 2004).".

The only thing I could find was a Paperpile subpage but it doesn't look right to me - for example there are no cities of publication for the books. For the record it looks like this: "Pszczoła, M. & Judycki, J. Evaluation of Thermal Stresses in Asphalt Layers Incomparison with TSRST Test Results. in 7th RILEM International Conference on Cracking in Pavements: Mechanisms, Modeling, Testing, Detection and Prevention Case Histories (eds. Scarpas, A., Kringos, N., Al-Qadi, I. & A., L.) 41–49 (Springer Netherlands, 2012)."

Does anyone here have any ideas? Thanks in advance!
