APA Formatting: Reference Page

Reference Page

The final part of your paper is the References. This last section lists the detailed citations of all of your sources, allowing readers to find the same source for themselves if they would like to read further into anything that you discussed. Refer to the citations area of this webpage for properly formatting your citations.

  1. After you have finished typing the main body of your paper, insert a page break, center your text, and type References
  2. Adjust text back to the left, and now you have to create what's called a "hanging indent." Select the "Home" tab, and click the arrow in the Paragraph section to open the full paragraph menu
  3. With the paragraph menu open, look under "Indentation" and select "Hanging" from the drop-down menu under "Special;" click OK
  4. This sets up the page to indent every line after the first line for each citation.
