APA: Rules for References

  • The heading on the page of sources should be “References.”
  • Alphabetize the list by first authors' last names. If there is no author given, start with the first significant word in the title.
  • References should be in a hanging indent format, meaning that the first line of each reference is set flush left and subsequent lines are indented.
  • Double-space the entire list.
  • In titles of articles and books, capitalize only the first word of the title and subtitle, and proper nouns.
