Referencing using APA/Resources/Reference Lists and Bibliographies
Reference lists & Bibliographies
As well as acknowledging author(s) with in-text citations, you have to include the details of their publication in a reference list at the end of your text.
The basic skills of writing reference lists can be found here.
A reference list is a record of the works that you have chosen to refer to in your essay. A bibliography on the other hand is a list of the material which you have accessed in the preparation of your essay. This is material which has influenced your thinking, but does not particularly warrant a reference.
