References and Appendices

Next in your report is the reference list. The reference section begins on a separate page with the title “References” centred and bolded.

How to reference your source documentation is a crucial part of your writing and is explained in-depth in this section on References.

In some research reports you may wish to include an appendix or appendices to provide additional information that would be distracting to the reader (e.g., sample surveys, large tables) if it was placed in the body of the report.

Information concerning how to cite appendices is provided in this section on Appendices.
