Where do we place the works cited page in a research paper?

Begin your Works Cited page on a separate page at the end of your research paper. It should have the same one-inch margins and last name, page number header as the rest of your paper.

What is the page called where you cite your sources?

You provide complete information about the source (author, title, name of publication, date, etc.) at the end of your paper, in the bibliography (also called the works cited or references page, depending on the style you use).

Do you number a works cited?

Alphabetize the list of entries in your Works Cited. Do not number entries. If one of your entries starts with a numeral, alphabetize the title as if the numeral were spelled out. For example, 1984 Revisited should be alphabetized as if it began with “Nineteen Eighty Four.”

What should be in italics on a works cited page?

Italicize titles if the source is self-contained and independent. Titles of books, plays, films, periodicals, databases, and websites are italicized. Place titles in quotation marks if the source is part of a larger work. Articles, essays, chapters, poems, webpages, songs, and speeches are placed in quotation marks.

When filing alphabetically Where do numbers go?

If you’re using an alphabetical system, you’ll file numbers in ascending order, that is smallest to largest, the same way you would proceed through the alphabet. When you get to letters, initials go first within their letter designation.
