By citingyour sources at the end of your paper, you are letting your readers know where they can go to</p><p>verify your research or find more information; you are also acknowledging the research and</p><p>ideas of others and protecting yourself from accusations of plagiarism. To compile and write anAPA-style bibliography for your paper or article, you should follow the steps below:</p><p>Edit Steps</p><p>1. 1</p><p>Begin a new page separate from the text for your bibliography or</p><p>reference list. A reference list is different from a bibliography. Find out</p><p>which one you need. The only difference is that a reference list includes what</p><p>you have cited within the text, and sources you have used, but nothing else.</p><p>Any other sources you have read or seen, but later discarded because they</p><p>are irrelevant, outdated, etc., should never be included in a reference list, but</p><p>can be included in the bibliography.</p><p>2. 2</p><p>Create an alphabetized list of your sources based upon the authorslast name. If the source you are using contains two or more authors, use the</p><p>last name of the author listed first on the title page. According to the 2010</p><p>APA manula, For up to 7 authors names list them all. For 8 or more, list the</p><p>first 6 followed by a comma, an ellipsis or 3 periods then the last author's</p><p>name. If a book is edited and there is no author named, type the editor's</p><p>name followed by (Ed.). If your source does not list an author, use the first</p><p>word of the title to alphabetize the work.</p><p>3. 3</p><p>For each source, list the authors last name and first initials, with a</p><p>comma separating the names and initials and periods after the</p><p>initials. APA calls for initials only to reduce bias. Ex.
