How To Prepare A Reference List (APA)

The reference list should include all and only the sources cited or quoted in your assignment.

Please note this information is for APA 7. To see refernce list requirements for APA 6 click here

Your reference list goes on a new page at the end of your assignment text and the heading is References, centered and in bold on the page.

Any sources you refer to in-text must appear in the reference list and the reference list must only contain sources you have referred to in-text. Usually each reference entry has the same four basic ingredients:

Author The person, persons, and/or group responsible for the work
Date The date the work was published (or the indicator “n.d.” if no date of publication is available)
Title The title of the work being cited in Italic font
Source The location where readers can retrieve the cited work
