But which should you use?
Some dissertations have a reference list, some have a bibliography, some have both. Ask your supervisor, and look at past papers in your subject to find out which to use.
For details on how to write different kinds of references, visit Successful Referencing (opens in a new window).
The Reference list and/or Bibliography will be the very last section of your paper, before the appendices.
