Reference List

The Reference List is an alphabetical list of sources cited in your written assignment. The list appears at the end of your paper on a separate page. Each reference entry includes full details about the source you cited, such as author(s), date of publication, title, and source information (e.g., URL, publisher name). Carefully follow order, capitalization, punctuation, and font format. To create an accurate reference entry, you will need to determine the type of source (e.g., book, website, newspaper) and follow examples for that type of source.
