Unformatted text preview: OVERVIEW: How to Write a References Page CENTER THE TITLE AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE. - Don't write References Page. Don’t write Works Cited. Don’t write Bibliography. The title is References
- Don't bold it - Don't write it in all caps - Don't underline it - Don't change the font size to make it bigger than the body of citations WRITE ALL CITATION S IN ALPHA ORDER, BY AUTHOR’S LAST NAME If there is more than one author’ 5 name, never change the order in which the names appear. When authors
work together it is often agreed between them that the writer who does the most work (OR has the most
expertise) has his/her name go ﬁrst. Also, never leave any names out - always include every author’s name. 9 Example:
Smith, A. B., Chatsworth, C.D., & Abercrombie, E.F. OTHER FORMATTING TIPS TO REMEMBER o Capitalization: Only the first word in the title is capitalized. However, there are 3 exceptions:
A. Capitalize any proper nouns, like Atlanta.
8. Capitalize the first word following a colon in a title. In the example it is ”Civil”
C. Capitalize all letters in an acronym: NAACP, PMRC, FBI, etc. Example: Museum of Public Relations. (2016). Edward L. Bemays. In 1920: NAACP conference in Atlanta: Civil rights

Thereafter, always indent the second, third, fourth lines about K-inch from the margin. - Right Margin: Type as close to the right margin as possible. The right margin should be close to 1-inch. . Breaking the URL: Do not write the URL address on a separate line in the citation. You will probably have
to ”break” the URL at a place with punctuation like a slash, dash, period, or underline.
This punctuation mark starts off the next line of the URL address. Example:
Kirzinger, A.E., Weber, G, & Johnson, M. (2012). Genetic and environmental inﬂuences on media use and communication behaviors. Human Communication Research, 38(2), 144-171. Retrieved
