Sample Reference Page

Listed below is a sample Reference page done in the APA style format from the Purdue OWL. The Purdue OWL is a wonderful resource to reference when doing your paper in APA format. (Please note: There is a citation generator on this site that is not free or recommended. See the list of recommended citation generators on our guide to Style Guides and Manuals.)

For your References page, keep in mind the following rules:

1. Start the reference list on a new page.

2. Center the title as References.

3. Alphabetize the entries. 

4. Double space all entries. 

5. Every source mentioned in your paper should have an entry on the References page.
