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 throu h the media. Retrieved from h :/ orvisionaries.com/berna s/bema s l920.hlml - Left Margin: The first line of the citation starts 1-inch from the edge of the paper, at the left margin. 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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
