MLA is often used in courses in the humanities. The most current version of MLA is outlined in the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 9th Edition.
You cite sources to avoid plagiarism. Provide enough information when you cite so that your reader can find each source you used. This way, your information is verifiable.
You have to provide a parenthetical in-text citation that points to the information you used, and a bibliographic citation at the end that gives information to find your source.
To cite, you need the following information when applicable and available.
|Author last name/s or organziational author name||Author first name/s|
|URL or DOI||Year of publication|
|Article, section, or chapter title||Journal, book, website, report, or other title|
|Volume and issue number||Publisher name and city for books|
|Translator name/s||Page numbers when citing a part|
