What should be included in a professional reference? What format should a reference list have?

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 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 of how you professionally cite and add references to your work.
