What is a reference list in APA style?

The APA referencing style consists of a set of styling rules used by the American Psychological Association since 1929 to present written text clearly and consistently. APA style involves using a title page, sans serif or serif fonts, double spacing, one-inch margins, and page numbers. APA style also mandates placing in-text citations in author-year format e.g. (Abdullah, 2021), and a reference list starting on a new page. The most current version is the 7th edition of the APA Publication Manual.

What is a works-cited page in MLA style?

MLA or Modern Language Association style includes styling rules for papers and assignments that guarantee consistency and easy reading. MLA mandates parenthetical in-text citations as well as gathering all sources into a list, with the heading “Works Cited.” MLA also mandates double spacing, 12pt font, one-inch margins, indenting the first line of each paragraph, and adding page numbers. The most current edition is the 9th edition of the MLA Handbook.
