References (Based on APA Style)

At the end of your essay, place a list of the references you have cited in the text. Arrange this in alphabetical order of authors' surnames, and then chronologically (earliest publication date first) for each author where more than one work by that author is cited. The author's surname is placed first, followed by initials or first name, and then the year of publication is given. If the list contains more than one item published by the same author(s) in the same year, add lower case letters immediately after the year to distinguish them (e.g. 1983a). These are ordered alphabetically by title disregarding any initial articles (aan or the).

  • The reference list includes only the sources you have used in any submission. APA Style requires reference lists, not bibliographies.
  • The reference list begins a new page with the centered heading - References
  • Reference list entries should be indented half an inch or 12 mm (five to seven spaces) on the second and subsequent lines of the reference list for every entry - a hanging indent is the preferred style. (i.e. entries should begin flush left, and the second and subsequent lines should be indented).
  • Arrange entries in alphabetical order by the surname of the first author as the letters appear (e.g. M, Mac, MacD, Mc).
  • If there is no author, the title moves to the author position (filed under the first significant word of the title). If the title in this instance begins with numerals, spell them out.
  • States and territories are abbreviated in the location section of the publication information. For U.S. states, use the official two-letter postal service abbreviations (e.g. New York, NY; Berkeley, CA; Philadelphia, PA). For Australian states and territories, use the official two or three-letter postal service abbreviations (e.g. Adelaide, SA; Brisbane, QLD; Darwin, NT).
  • Spell out country names if outside Australia or the United States.
  • If the publisher is a university where the name includes the state, don't repeat the state in the location section (e.g. Ann Arbor: University of Michigan; Toowoomba: University of Southern Queensland).
  •  
    • APA format example:
