Reference List

Sources cited in your paper must appear on a reference list. This page should meet the following guidelines:


  • A reference list appears as a separate page at the end of your paper.

  • Title the page "References" and center the title at the top of the page.

  • Each source cited in your paper should be represented in your reference list.


Write out the last name and first initials for each author of a given work. 


Capitalize the first words of the title and subtitle of each source on the reference list, as well as any proper names.

ex. How to succeed in business without really trying: Broadway and beyond


Do not italicize titles of journal articles or essays.


  • A reference list should be arranged in alphabetical order according to authors' last names.

  • Entries without authors should be arranged alphabetically by title within the reference list.

IndentationThe first line of a citation is flush on the left margin and each subsequent line indented one-half inch (one tab)
