How many sources are required for a works cited page?

The Works Cited page is the list of sources used in the research paper. It should be its own page at the end of the paper. Center the title, “Works Cited” (without quotation marks), at the top of the page. If only one source was consulted, title the page “Work Cited”.

Do you need to cite common knowledge?

Do you have to cite common knowledge? Common knowledge does not need to be cited in your paper. However, to avoid plagiarism, you should be absolutely certain a piece of information is considered common knowledge before you omit the reference.

What is work consulted?

Works Consulted: is the term used to list background reading or any sources used for informational purposes but not paraphrased or quoted. It is used to document those sources referred to, but not cited in your project.

What comes first works cited or works consulted?

Place the “Works Cited” page(s) immediately after the last page of the text. If your paper includes both Works Cited and Works Consulted, the Works Consulted page should follow the Works Cited page.
