Format the Reference List
How you organize your list will depend on which of the three systems (previous page) you chose. No matter which you use though, the entries must include the full details on your sources, including:
❉ author or editor
❉ publication date
❉ publication information.
Continue reading below for details on formatting each reference component and ordering the reference list.
❉ start a new page for the references list
❉ center or left-justify the word "References" on the page
❉ use a hanging indent (hanging indents indent all text except the first line), to correctly format your references list.
Order of References List
The order of your references list depends on what kind of in-text citations you used: author-date, or numerical (parenthetical or superscript).
