Widely adopted by universities, colleges, and secondary schools, the MLA Handbook gives step-by-step advice on every aspect of writing research papers, from selecting a topic to submitting the completed paper.
For over half a century, the MLA Handbook is the guide millions of writers have relied on.
Previous editions of the provided separate instructions for each format, and new formats required additional instructions.
In this groundbreaking edition of its best-selling handbook, the MLA recommends instead one universal set of guidelines, which writers can apply to any type of source.
The entire work(or a work that has no page numbers) Include information in the text of your paper that will allow the reader to locate the source in your works cited list.
If it is not possible to include this information in the text, follow the sentence where the citation needs to be made with an in-text citation containing only the name of the author. No official MLA format for citing online classroom materials exists.
Volume and issue numbers are often not available for articles in online periodicals.
In these cases simply follow the date of the magazine or journal with a period in your works cited list citation, omitting the volume number where necessary. Your in-text citation gives credit to Larsen and shows the source in which you found Larsen's ideas.
