Completing Your Works Cited Page

Once you have completed the citations for your two articles, you will put them into a Works Cited page, which will be the last page of your project.

Follow these rules to create your Works Cited page:

   1.   Begin your Works Cited Page on a new page, with the title Works Cited centered at the top.

   2.   Doublespace within and between the citations.

   3.   Put your citations in alphabetical order by the first word of each (usually the author's last name).

   4.   Pay close attention to punctuation, spacing, italicization, and indentation.

   5.   Do not number the citations.
