SNC 2D1 How To Make a Reference Page for Grade 10 Science Whenever you are doing research or using information from another person/source, you must always give credit to the original author. If you do not give credit to the author, your work is considered PLAGIARIZED. The American Psychological Association (APA) style of referencing is often used in the sciences. Below you will find information on how to write a complete reference as well as an example of a list of references. In SNC 2D1, we will use a modified APA style Reference List. It will be a numbered list so that you will be able to use numbers (endnotes) to cite your sources of information within your power point presentation or information sheet. This is call suing endnotes or the numbered-note system. How to write a complete APA reference - authors are listed last name first, then first initials (e.g. Anthony, J.L. & Boron, P.T.) - title only has the first letter capitalized (e.g. Chemistry is a lot of fun.) - website is specific, and not for a search engine (i.e. www.google.ca will NOT be accepted) - the first line of the reference is flush with the margin, but all following lines must be indented. - every piece of punctuation must be used precisely.
