Spacing Citations

Each citation style has specific rules for indentation and spacing within entries. The first line of each citation should start at the left margin and subsequent lines should be indented. Use the following guidelines when preparing your list of resources:

  • MLA: double-space the Works Cited page
  • APA: double-space the References page
  • Chicago: double-space the Bibliography page
  • ASA: double-space the References page
  • Turabian: single-space within each entry and double-space between entries on the Works Cited page

Your list of citations should always be organized alphabetically. For more detailed information on formatting your essay and creating citations, refer to the published citation style guides.
