    After I finished a report, I have to footnote the reference which I used in my report. Is the following writing acceptable?

    Works Cited

    1. Keley, Candice M., 2008, Generation MySpace: Helping Your Teen Survive Online Adolescence
    2. Hau-quen, Lu, A Psychological Analysis & Coping Strategies of Adolescents with Internet Addiction,

    Re: reference

    Definitely not.

    In the first citation, you must supply all the information necessary to enable readers to find Keley's paper: in which journal was it published, and in which issue. It does not have to be locatable online, of course; a reference to a paper edition is perfectly acceptable.

    The same rule applies to the second citation, obviously. I cannot tell whether or not your hyperlink satisfies the requirements because I cannot read Chinese.
