How do I create a reference template in Word? What should be on a reference list? Are you looking for a professional Reference List Format?

This Reference List Format template can help you find inspiration and shows how to structure and communicate in a professional way with your readers. When writing a thesis, research paper, news article, etc, it's common that you need to quote someone else, because they have paraphrased that what you are trying to say in a suitable or memorable way. When you cite someone else’s ideas, research conclusions, statistics, or unique information, it's important that you always cite the source and give its authors credit for their ideas and work. If you use the same words as the original author (or authors) it is called a direct quote and you must communicate this to the readers. 

If you fail to do so, it can be considered plagiarism. Quoting and adding a reference to the source is in principle the same as if it comes from a book, website academic article, newspaper, etc. This reference list is a good example on how you professionally cite and add references in your work.

Reference List format:

  • {{Reference Name}}
  • {{Title}}
  • {{Company Name}}
  • {{Street Address}}
  • {{City, ST ZIP Code}}
  • {{Telephone}}
  • {{Email}} Relationship: {{Relationship with reference}} at {{Company Name}} from {{dates}}
  • (oten written fully or in parts in italics)

Based on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2001) Whenever you quote someone else directly, paraphrase someone else’s ideas, summarize someone else s ideas, report someone else’s statistics, or report a piece of unique information, you need to cite the source and give its authors credit for their ideas and work.
