According to MLA: for entries in encyclopedias that have alphabetized entries, do not include the publisher information, the volume, or the page number of the article. If there is an author of the article, put the author's name first. If the article is not signed, then the title of the article comes first. Italicize the name of the encyclopedia.
No author: "Book of Ruth". Encyclopedia Judaica. 7th ed. 2007. Print.
With author: Lester, John. "Book of Ruth". Encyclopedia Judaica. 7th ed. 2007. Print.
