Points to note:

  • Generally only a single place of publication is required in the reference list/bibliography for each item
  • All lines after the first line in each individual reference should be indented by 1.25cm.
  • You may want to clarify less common places of publication  by adding the state, county or country name at the end e.g. Woodbridge, Suffolk  or Upper Saddle River, New Jersey
  • Check with your teacher if this is acceptable
  • If you do add names for clarification, make sure you do this consistently throughtout your reference list/bibliography
