The Writer's HandbookFrom the Writing Center at the The University of Wisconsin - Madison, this site covers the mechanics of writing academic papers, including how to format your paper and cite your sources in a variety of styles (APA, MLA, etc.).
Quick Start for CMS
List of references begin on a new page and titled either Bibliography or References.
Sources on the Bibliography/References page should be listed alphabetically by first word in the citation.
The citations should be single spaced, with an extra space between sources. If a citation has more than one line, every line after the first should be indented (also called a hanging indent).
The devil is in the details! Pay special attention to Capitalization, punctuation, and underline and italics formatting.
In addition to providing the full citations for sources, you should include footnotes or endnotes in the text of your paper to avoid plagiarism.
Everything listed on the Bibliography/References page should have a corresponding footnote or endnote. If there is no footnote/endnote, that means you didn't use the source and the citation does not need to be included.
