I want to quote a chapter from ICD10 in vancouver format. I have searched whole web for some references on this. But I could not find anything. I am a newbie here. Can some one please help.

This is the chapter title "Chapter XVI Certain conditions originating in the perinatal period (P00-P96)"

  • Do you really need to cite a chapter, rather than the entire classification system?

  • @Orion: I need to site chapter XVI, p00-p96 May 25, 2016 at 10:13
  • Why not using the book chapter format? libguides.murdoch.edu.au/Vancouver/chapter

  • @Emilie: there is no specific authors for those chapters. May 25, 2016 at 13:26
  • Why not just cite the book as a whole in your reference list, then have your in-text reference be something like “In chapter 16 of the ICD-10 (World Health Organisation, 1992), the WHO says ...”? (Comment using APA style since I’m not familiar with Vancouver style).
