The Sample Research Paper

• Begin the list on a new page at the end of your paper.

• Continue the numbering of pages as in the body of your research paper.

• Center the Works Cited title an inch from the top of the page.

• Double-space between the title and the first entry; continue to double-space both within and between entries.

• Alphabetize entries according to the last names of authors. If the author of an entry is unknown, begin with the title, alphabetizing the entry by the first word on the title other than A, An, or The.

• See Documenting Bibliographic Entries for the exact formats to use for each source you cite.

• Make the first word in each entry flush with the left-hand margin and indent all following lines.

• If the works-cited list contains more than one work by an author, substitute a long line for his name after the first time you cite him.
