Creating a References Page at the End of the Paper: ACS Format
This is a separate page at the end of your paper. Each citation in the text must be listed on the References page; each listing on the References page must appear in the text.
The title of the page should be centered and labeled References.
List the citations in numerical order if cited by number (superscript or italics) or alphabetically if cited by author by author.
All text is double-spaced, just like the rest of the paper.
Indent the second and subsequent lines of citations by 0.5 inch to create a hanging indent. To do this, go to the paragraph section under the home tab in Word. Click the arrow in the bottom right hand corner. This opens a box: under “special”, click on “hanging”. This creates the hanging format.
