When formatting your Bibliography or Reference list, follow the instructions below to format the hanging indent.

Highlight the complete list of references.

Go to the Paragraph block in the Word ribbon (under the Home or the Page Layout tab). Click the small dialogue box button to edit formatting options.

Under the Indentation section, choose Hanging

Note that if you are formatting the references for APA, you can use this dialogue box to double space also - click the drop down arrow under Line Spacing.
