What is a reference list in APA style?

A reference list is a formatted list of all sources you cited in your paper. This means that anytime you cite any works or individuals whose ideas, theories, or research have directly influenced your work, you need to credit them in your reference list. APA is one of the most popular citation styles and was developed by the American Psychological Association to standardize scientific writing. It provides rules and guidelines as to how to format your reference list. All the rules of the APA style can be found in the current version of the APA Manual (7th edition).

What is a works-cited page in MLA style?

The MLA style was developed by the Modern Language Association of America, which publishes the MLA Handbook, a citation guide for high school and undergrad students. The MLA style uses in-text citations and a reference list (called Works Cited list) at the end of the paper with all the literature used in the text. In-text citations aim at directing the reader to the entry in your Works Cited list for the source, while creating the least possible interruption in the text. Works that were consulted for but not used in your paper should not be included.
