What Is a Reference List? A professional reference list is a list of sources used in a specific paper. It is written on a separate sheet of paper with the heading “references”, “reference list”, or “works cited” depending on the required citation style. A reference list is usually arranged following the particular rules listed below:
- A paper reference list must be arranged in alphabetical order disregarding the source type
- Resources must be arranged in following a template following a citation style selected
- A reference list should contain the information about these sources directly cited in the paper be it paraphrasing or a direct quote.
A reference list is an important part of any academic paper. The main idea of any essay or research paper is to show evidence from different reputable sources. A reference list must be presented at the end of the paper to help the reader find the required sources and tie the information from the essay or a research paper to these sources. Even though a reference list is developed and edited when the whole paper has already been written, you will start creating your academic paper reference list before you get down to writing.
A Reference List vs. a Bibliography
Some students mistakenly confuse two notions, a reference list, and a bibliography. However, these two notions are very different and cannot be used as synonyms. The main difference between a reference list and a bibliography is that a bibliography includes all the sources a person consulted while writing the paper no matter whether these sources have been cited in the text or not, while a reference list is a list of sources that have been cited in the paper. A reference list is arranged strictly in alphabetical order disregarding the source type, while a bibliography may be arranged either in the alphabetical order disregarding the type of the source or arranged by the source type. In a latter case, one has to list books, then journal articles, then manuscripts, followed by the websites, and some other types of sources one may consider necessary.
