How to Write A Bibliography

Bismillahirrohmaanirrohiim..

Hello Gengs!

2 days ago when I was attending a propaedeutic, I got a crucial information about how to avoid a plagiarism in writing. It is inevitable that putting the resources particularly from books in which we looked for specific data regarding our academic article is an obligation, so here are some ways for you to write a bibliography as one of the plagiarism prevention.

  1. Modern Language Association (MLA) style

This kind of style is commonly used by the Humanities. Follow this steps:

  • Write the last name, then the first
  • The title of the book (each word is started by the capital letter, and in Italic)
  • The Publisher
  • Then, the year published

For instance:

Henley, Patricia. The Hummingbird House. MacMurray, 1999.

2. American Psychological Association (APA) style

This second style is academically used by Education, Psychology, and Sciences. The way is:

  • Write the last name, then the first name (only the initial)
  • The year published (in a bracket)
  • The title of the book (only the first word is started by the capital letter, and totally in Italic)
  • The city in which the book is published
  • Then, the publisher

For example:

Baxter, C. (1997). Race equity in health care and education. Philadelphia: Balliere Tindall.

3. Chicago/Turabian style

This style is generally used by Business, History, and the Fine Arts. Here we go:

  • Write the last name, then the first name
  • The title of the book (each word is started by the capital letter, and totally in Italic)
  • The city in which the book is published
  • The publisher
  • Then, the year published.

As an illustration:

Rushdie, Salman. The Ground beneath Her Feet. New York: Henry Holt, 1999.

Note:

  • Put attention on the punctuation such as . , :, etc.
  • Don’t start with a capital letter for Propositions like in, on, at, beneath, above, and so forth.

That’s all..

Anything to ask? leave a comment please. (^_^)

See you..
