Q. I am preparing an author-date-style reference list for a forthcoming book by my professor. She would like to include a paper that I wrote for her class in the fall. How do I do this? I have no intention of publishing the paper in the near future.

A. You could style it after the “paper presented” model:

O’Guinn, Thomas C. 1987. “Touching Greatness: Some Aspects of Star Worship in Contemporary Consumption.” Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association, New York.
