APA Style:
Bullet points and numbered lists (APA, 2012, pp: 63-65)

Bullet points:

To bullet point complete paragraphs or sentences

Punctuate and capitalise as you usually would without a bullet point (i.e., the first word of the bullet point will have a capital, and each sentence, including the final sentence, will end with a full stop).

To bullet point within a sentence

Punctuate as you usually would without a bullet point (i.e., separate bulleted items with commas at the end of each point, or with a semicolon as appropriate - refer to guides on semi-colons and commas).


Numbered Lists:

When each item in a list is a separate paragraph

Within a paragraph or sentence
