APA References Page
When writing an APA paper, you use two types of citations:
These citations are directly linked. Any in-text citation should reflect a citation in your References page at the end of your APA paper.
The in-text citation is a brief reference to your source which then leads your reader to your References page for the full citation.
Part of submitting a paper in correct APA style is formatting.
APA has very specific instructions on how to format your References page.
A References page should:
be on its own page at the end of your paper (use the Page Break feature in Word to do this; you do not need to create a separate document)
have the words References at the top, centered (not in bold or italics)
be formatted like the rest of the paper (margins, font, header, etc.)
include hanging indents for the second line of each entry
