What is a hanging indent?

0

(A) A hanging indent is how the sources in a works cited list are typed. The first line of the hanging indent is written flush with the left margin, and any additional lines are indented a few spaces (usually a tab or about five spaces) to the right of the left margin. See example below: Nicol, Andy, & Perry Pexman. Presenting Your Findings: A Practical Guide for Creating Tables. Washington, DC: American Psychological Association. 1999. To create a hanging indent, go to “Format” menu, and click on “Paragraph”. Choose “Indents and Spacing” tab. In the Special list under “Indentation”, select “Hanging”. In the “By” box, set the amount of space for the hanging indent, which is usually a tab – so 0.5 spaces.
