MLA Handbook for writers of research papers (7th edition)
What is MLA?
MLA is a reference tool used in subject areas for the Humanities. It
provides extensive guidelines on how to formulate a topic, format a research
paper, cite parenthetical texts and compile a list of works cited in English as
well as other foreign languages. Other useful capabilities include
documenting online sources, writing a quote from an e-mail received or
incorporating abbreviations in your list of references. There is also in-depth
discussion on plagiarism.
Parenthetical Citations
In general, MLA requires parenthetical citations, or citations that are put in parentheses,
in the text, directly following the material that is quoted, summarized, or paraphrased.
1. Use a parenthetical citation when referencing works of others, following a
quotation from a source or paraphrasing a source’s ideas.
2. In the author-page method, use author’s last name and page number (s ).
When referencing the same page or a different page by the same author in a
paragraph just incorporate the page number.
3. If an author is unknown (for example, with a web source), use an abbreviated
version of the work’s title in quotes followed by the page number.
4. To cite authors with the same last names, include their full name or initials
followed by the page number.
5. Citing authors with three or fewer authors, list the authors’ last names with
‘and’ before the last author cited. When citing more than three authors, cite
the first author’s last name followed by et al.
6. Upon citing electronic sources, film or Internet sources, reference the source
in in-text citations. Sources should be italicized.
7. Cite the name of the entire bible, chapter and verse. E.g. (New Jerusalem
Bible, Ezek. 1. 5-10).
New and Revised Guidelines
1. MLA now requires the inclusion of issue and volume numbers of journals
in electronic databases.
• Use of Italics: Italics must be used now for the volume of a
publication
• In-text citations and titles in list of works cited e.g. books, plays
poems published as books, pamphlets, periodicals, websites,
databases, films, broadcasts, audio recordings (compact discs,
cassettes, albums) performances (dance or opera), musical
compositions, works of visual art, and the names of vessels (ships,
aircraft, spacecraft
• the use of foreign words in English text
• Website and website publisher of when citing online periodicals.
• Designated words such as linguistic turn as compared to
postmodernism.
2. Citations for graphic narratives and digital files must now include the type
of file (PDF or MP3, for example)
3. Punctuation of titles of works
4. Citations of works in newspapers
5. Medium of publication must now be listed in every entry of list of works
cited, including designating whether it is Print or Web-based, or
Performance, TV or DVD.
6. Omission of URL’s for web publications; unless entry is difficult to locate
7. Figures, tables and captions do not use parenthetical citations. A full
citation should be listed directly under the material.
8. Appendixes to additional writing guides and specialized style manuals
9. New abbreviations
