The works cited in the text of the paper should, in most cases, have corresponding reference list entries that provide the information necessary for readers to identify and retrieve the cited works.
All references consist of four components that appear in the following order:
|Author||the person, persons, and/or group responsible for the work|
|Date||the date the work was published (or the indicator “n.d.” if no date of publication is available)|
|Title||the title of the work being cited|
|Source||the location where readers can retrieve the cited work|
