Further readings provide references to sources that the author has deemed useful to a reader seeking additional information about the topic but that is not essential to understanding the overall paper. The list of further readings contains sources that have not been cited in the research paper.
Depending on the writing style you are asked to use [e.g., APA], any list of further readings should be located at the end of your paper after the endnotes or references but before any appendices. The list should begin under the heading "Further Readings."
If you choose to include a list of further readings, keep in mind the following:
To identify possible titles to include in a list of further readings, review the sources you found while researching your paper but that you ended up not citing. Review these sources and, by playing the role of reader, think about which of these sources may provide additional insight or information about the research problem you have investigated.
