Reference List: Name-Year

Always include a reference list with full bibliographic information for all cited sources at the end of your report. 

Using Name-Year

  • References must be unnumbered 
  • Order references alphabetically by author surname

Formatting your reference list

  • Place your reference list at the end of your document
  • Begin the reference list on a new page with the title "References" centered in the page.
  • Keep the first line flush with the left-hand margin
  • Indent successive lines 1.27cm (also called a hanging indent)
