 year = {2006},

 title = {The virtual linguistics campus:  Strategies and concepts for successful e-learning},

 address = {M\"unster},

 publisher = {Waxmann},

 isbn = {978-3-8309-1689-5},

 editor = {Handke, J\"urgen and Franke, Peter}

}

•If you have a BibTeX file (with the .bib file name extension) on your computer already, double-click it to start the import or drag it into the navigation pane in the Reference Editor.
