I question this. Specifically, to which rules do you refer?
Name author, title, year of publication, etc.!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_spacing includes 10 citations
(numbers 6 to 15) that might be what you are looking for.

The practise seems to be falling out of favour, so there are no doubt
style guides that recommend the same width of space in all cases, but
unless the citations in that article are wrong, there have been guides
and authorities that support this widely held view.
