Research Paper Bibliography Cards

Not everyone has a clear understanding of how to write bibliography.

It should be present at the end of any academic paper.

Write the author’s last name, followed by a comma and first name, and then the title. Lastly, add publication information, such as the city of publication and the publisher of a book or the journal’s name, volume and issue. The front of the bibliography card should also include the location of the source.

For example, to cite a book in MLA Style, use the following format: Author, Name. For library sources, write the name of the library and the call number. This brief location information should help you easily find the source again.

The American Psychological Association (APA) citation style is primarily used in the social sciences.

This format differs from the Modern Language Association (MLA) style because it emphasizes the date by placing it earlier in the citation, and it helps reduce bias by using only the last names and first initials of the author, thereby removing gender from the author’s name.

Sometimes it is difficult to locate an author for an online source.

If you absolutely can't find an author's name, you can use the name of the organization that published the article (for example, "California Department of Health," or "American Humane Society").

Sources that don't have authors (encyclopedias, movies) should be alphabetized by title.

There are different formats for bibliographies, so be sure to use the one your teacher prefers.
