How to write a bibliography

Proper bibliography or reference section is essential for any formal research paper. There are many ways a bibliography can be created; APA, MLA etc. In this tutorial we will discuss how to write a bibliography using simple and standard method.

Step#1

Create a page at the end of the paper and name it “Bibliography”.

Step#2

List and sort all author’s last names and sources used in the writing alphabetically. Author’s last name will come first, followed by a comma and then the first name followed by a period.

If the used source is from a book, write the book title in italic font style, followed by a period. You may underline the book name too.

If the used source was from an article rather than a book, cite the name of the article inside quotation marks, in place of a book title. You also need to write the journal or magazine name including its volume number if the article was a part of a journal or magazine.

Step#3

Now you need to name the location where the article or the book was published, followed by a colon.

Step#4

Include the name of the published, followed by a comma.

Step#5

Finish the bibliography entry by adding the date of publication, followed by a period.

Add number to your bibliography pages when adding page number to your paper.
