How do I create a hanging indent in my APA reference list?

When using the APA referencing style, all lines after the first line of each reference list entry should be indented half an inch from the left margin. This is called a hanging indent, or a second line indent.

Instructions on how to do this in Microsoft Word are avaible on the Microsoft 365 Support site.
