6th: Formatting the Works Cited Page
Creating an APA7th ed. Style Reference Guide (PDF from APA Style)
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.
Double space the entries. Do not add extra spaces between entries.
ex. How to succeed in business without really trying: Broadway and beyond
A reference list should be arranged in alphabetical order according to the first authors' last name.
Entries without authors should be arranged alphabetically by title within the reference list.
