What is a reference list in APA style?

The APA citation style provides a framework of styling rules for academic papers. The American Psychological Association publishes a Manual which contains guidelines on paper structure and content, writing and formatting, and crediting sources. The APA style mandates short citations in-text and a reference list at the end of the document. In-text citations are presented in an author-date format, e.g. (Suliman, 2018). The reference list contains the author, year, title, and source of the cited works, at a minimum. It does not contain any references that were not cited in the paper.

What is a works-cited page in MLA style?

MLA style was developed by the Modern Language Association and is one of the most common citation styles used by students and academics. The MLA style uses a two-part documentation system for citing sources; in-text citations and a Works Cited entry, which is a full reference for every source you cited, alphabetized by the author’s last name. The list of Works Cited can be found at the end of your paper.
