Kradin, Richard. The Placebo Response and the Power of Unconscious
When citing the place of publication, it is not necessary to include the state, province or country after the city name. Use a shortened form of the publisher’s names. Omit terms such as Books, House, Press, Publishers and abbreviations such as Co., Corp., Inc., and Ltd. However, when citing a university press, always add the abbreviation P (e.g., Iowa State UP). When a publisher’s name includes the name of a single person, cite the surname alone (e.g. John Wiley would be cited Wiley). If the publisher’s name includes the names of more than one person, cite only the first of the surnames (e.g., Prentice Hall would be cited Prentice). (See pp. 151 & 247, MLA Handbook, 2009)
