Need help with referencing styles? Start with this helpful guide.



  • The heading “References” is in bold and centered at the top of the list.
  • Add a blank line space between the reference entries
  • Entries in the reference list should be alphabetical by author last name
  • Successive references for the same author are arranged by year but if two references have both the same author and same year, use 2015a 2015b
  • If there is no named author, use the title, ignoring any articles (A, An or The)
  • Use a hanging indent for each entry (the second and subsequent lines are indented)
  • Spell out the full name of a group author
