Formatting guidelines

  • Begin the reference list on a new page.
  • Use the heading ‘References’ in bold at the top of the page and make sure it is centred.
  • Order the references alphabetically.
  • Double space the reference list, within and between reference list entries. This can be done with the line spacing setting in any word processing software.
  • Use a hanging indent for each entry. You can see a guide on formatting a hanging indent here:
