Agreement of text with list: “Each reference cited in text must appear in the reference list, and each entry in the reference list must be cited in text” (p. 174).
Basic citation styles inaccurate, inconsistent. Table 6.1, p. 177, illustrates basic styles. “and” vs. “&” Use of “et al.” Two or more works within same parentheses “order alphabetically in the same order they appear in the reference list” (sec. 6.16, p. 177)
Ensure accuracy and agreement of things like years and author names between in-text citations and references list. Years (e.g., Mott, 1997 in text; Mott, 1999 in RL) Spelling of author names (e.g., Kearny in text, Kearney in RL)
