If I include my published article as a dissertation chapter, how should I handle the article’s references?

References in a dissertation should be in a consistent style (e.g., MLA) and location (at the end of each chapter or at the end of the work). If your published article uses a different reference style, convert the references. If your dissertation contains one reference list at the end, integrate the citations into that list.
