Works Cited Entries FAQ

When do I include page numbers?                             

For articles and other short works often found periodicals, anthologies, and collections, where many authors can be present, give the page number/page range. Remember to also always cite the page numbers in your in-text citations when the source has them.

  • Derousseau, Ryan. “The One Company That Amazon Can’t Disrupt.” Money, Sept. 2018, pp. 26-27.                                

For a whole work like a book from one author, do not list the page number/s in the works cited citation. Again, you will still reference the page number/s in your in-text citation.

When the source does not have page numbers you may leave that element out.

How do I write out a source with two authors?

Write out the first author's name last name then first name. Then write the second author's name with their first name before the last name. Write "and" in between both names.

  • Gourevitch, Philip, and Errol MorrisStandard Operating Procedure. Penguin Books, 2008.

How do I write out a source with three or more authors?

Write out the first listed author's name, last name, first name, followed by "et al."

  • Zumeta, William, et al. Financing American Higher Education in the Era of Globalization. Harvard Education Press, 2012.

What if my source has no author/s?

If you are absolutely sure there are no authors, begin the citation with the title of the source.

  • “Grit.” Merriam-Webster. 2018,
