Q. In a reference page for APA, are the references to be listed in alphabetical order or listed in the order they appear in the paper?


For an APA style paper, references should be listed in alphabetical order, not in the order in which they appear in your paper.

To see a Sample Paper with a References page in the correct order, visit the APA Help Guide.
