You should follow the below advice when creating a reference for an encyclopedia source:
If an encyclopaedia entry has a named author then the format for a chapter in a book should be used with the addition of the encyclopaedia volume number where appropriate:
AUTHOR, Year. Title of chapter. In: Encyclopaedia editor(s) INITIALS FIRST FOLLOWED BY SURNAMES with ed. or eds. after the last name. Title, Volume (if applicable), Edition. Place of publication: Publisher. Page nos.
Here is an example:
- DRAKE, P. P., 2013. Dividend discount models. In: F. J. FABOZZI ed. Encyclopedia of financial models, Vol. 2. Hoboken: John Wiley & Sons. pp. 3-14.
