How do I cite sources with multiple authors in MHRA referencing?

When a source has two or three authors, name all of them in your MHRA references. When there are four or more, use only the first name, followed by ‘and others’:

Number of authors Footnote example Bibliography example
1 author David Smith Smith, David
2 authors David Smith and Hugh Jones Smith, David, and Hugh Jones
3 authors David Smith, Hugh Jones and Emily Wright Smith, David, Hugh Jones and Emily Wright
4+ authors David Smith and others Smith, David, and others

Note that in the bibliography, only the author listed first has their name inverted. The names of additional authors and those of translators or editors are written normally.
