Reference List
At the end of your assignment, you are required to provide the full bibliographic information for each source cited in text. References must be listed in alphabetical order by author, and then chronologically. Exception: When citing from a secondary source, list only the secondary source in which you found the original information, and do not list the primary source in the reference list. Start the list of references on a new page at the end of your assignment. Do not use footnotes for referencing (Publication Manual, p.37) References should use the hanging indent format.
