Q. How do I format the APA References page?

Answer

Start the References list on a new page at the end of your paper.
  • Center the title, References, at the top of the page.
  • List all resources in alphabetical order by the the last name of the first author.  If there is no author, list the resource by the title and place it in the appropriate alphabetical listing.
  • Indent (5 spaces or 1 tab) any additional lines of a citation after its first. 
  • Use double-spacing throughout the page.  There should not be additional spaces between citations.
See the examples below and the attached file with a labeled example.  For step-by-step instructions on formatting the references page, please click on the video link below.
