Reference List

The guidelines below will help you properly format your reference list:

Begin the reference list on a new page after the text.

Place the section label "References" in bold at the top of the page, centered.

Order the reference list entries alphabetically by author.

Double-space the entire reference list (both within and between entries).

Apply a hanging indent of 0.5 in. to each reference list entry.


If you are unable to locate specific information for your citation, check out the missing reference webpage created by APA.
