It's easier done than said:
- Place your cursor at the beginning of your citation, and highlight it.
- Right click your mouse
- Select Paragraph from the resulting pop up menu
- Under Indentation, use the Special pull-down menu to select hanging
- Use the By menu to select 0.5"
For multiple Citations in a References, Works Cited or Bibliography Page
- Once you've applied the hanging indent using the technique above, hit enter after your citation.
- If you are typing your citation it should keep the same formatting. If you are pasting in your citation, right click when you paste and select the paste as text option (looks like a A on clipboard) and Word will automatically apply all the formatting you've already done, including hanging indent, spacing, font, etc. Alternatively you could wait until all your citations are on your bib, highlight them all at once, then use the 5 steps as listed above.
