Argument Paper Source List


Once you have completed your paper, you must include a list of the sources you cite within it. Any information you include that is new to you must be cited properly whether you paraphrase it or not! The sources you select should be listed on a separate, final page of your paper called the Works Cited page.

To format your Works Cited page, follow these instructions:

1. Title the page WORKS CITED (use all caps).

2. Double space the page.

3. List the sources you used in alphabetical order by last name. Although on future papers you will be expected to create proper citations, for this paper you may copy and paste from the list below.

4. Your list must be formatted with a hanging indent. The first line should be flush left with the margin. Each successive line should be indented one-half inch. If you use Word, select the entries and move the bottom triangle of the margin indicator over to the half-inch mark.
