  • Arrange the items on your reference list alphabetically by author, interfiling books, articles, etc.
  • Use only the initials of the authors' first (and middle) names.
  • If no author is given, start with the title and then the date.
  • If you are using a typewriter that cannot produce italics, then use underlining instead.
  • Magazine articles: include the month (and day) as shown under Newspapers.
