Does the list of references at the end of a paper follow a particular order?


Your Source List includes a list of all the sources that you have cited throughout your paper, in order of appearance in the assignment.

Here are tips for setting up your page:

  • Type “Sources” at the top of a new page
  • Each source includes five parts: author or organization, publication date, title, page number (if needed), and how to find it. If you have trouble finding these details, then re-evaluate the credibility of your source.
  • Use a permalink for a webpage when possible. Find tips here.
  • Instruct your readers on how to find all sources that do not have a browser link or a permalink.
