How do I format a works cited page?


A Works Cited page lists all the sources cited in a paper. Many people call this a Bibliography. It is formatted differently by different citation styles.

For a sample, click a link below.

MLA style: Works Cited  (Modern Language Association)

  • Commonly used in Pima's writing courses, especially for papers on literature.
  • Go to page 3 for a sample Works Cited page.

APA style: References page (American Psychological Association)

  • Used in psychology, nursing, and some other social sciences.
  • Click the link for a sample References page.

Chicago Style has two variations. Check which one your instructor prefers.

1. Notes - Bibliography   Used in history and art history.

  • Go to page 4. You'll see endnotes and the bibliography

2. Author - Date   Used in the social sciences

  • Go to page 4. You'll see the References page
