When formatting your References page, remember T.A.D.I.

T: Times New Roman, 12 point font (the entire page)
A: Alphabetical order
D: Double spaced throughout
I: Indent after the first line.

References are on a separate page.  Heading and page number must be on top.  Alphabetize entries.  Keep double spacing and Times New Roman 12 point.  No bullets, bolding, or underlining. List every source mentioned in the paper. Second lines are indented. First names and titles  (ex. MD) are never listed.  Only book and journal titles go in italics.  Titles: only capitalize the first letter in the first word, unless it is a proper name.  The year goes after the first entry.  If there is no date, you must state (n.d.).  URLs are listed after “Retrieved” and date. If there is more than one author, list all of them (up to seven).
