Some General Rules

In-Text Citations


What You Are Citing

In-Text Citation

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.

In his article "Allston Gothic," local historian Forman Jackson demonstrates how completely the neighborhood's gruesome past has been forgotten by its residents.

OR

A recent newspaper article demonstrated just how thoroughly the neighborhood's gruesome past has been forgotten by its residents (Jackson).

A specific page

(Cortois 70)

If the author's name is included in the text of the sentence where the citation takes place

Jacobs has argued this point (190-210).

Multi-volume set

(Green 1: 112-14)
"1" is the volume number.

Citing multiple authors

See Authors, below.



Authors

One author

Example:

Example:
In-Text Citation

Courtois, Charles A.

(Cortois 70)



Two authors

Example:
Works Cited List

Example:
In-Text Citation

Martin, Jonathan A., and Christopher Jackson.

(Martin and Jackson 127-28)



Three or more authors

Example:
Works Cited List

Example:
In-Text Citation

Fontela, Pablo, et al.

If a work has more than 2 authors, MLA gives you the option of listing only the first author followed by "et al." (Latin for "and others").

(Fontela et al. 153-54)



Group author

Example:
Works Cited List

Example:
In-Text Citation

Modern Language Association.

(Modern Language Association 111)



No authors listed

Example:
Works Cited List

Example:
In-Text Citation

"Hints and Notions." The Decorator and Furnisher, vol. 6, no. 2, May 1885, pp. 61-68. JSTOR, ezproxy.umuc.edu/login?url=www.jstor.org/stable/25584271.

List that source by title in your works cited list. The title should be followed by the name of the source in the citation, and the remainder of the citation composed as appropriate for the source type. Alphabetize reference list entries beginning with a title using the primary word of the title (excluding a, an, or the).

("Hints and Notions" 61)

In-text citations should include the title and the page number(s) of the text you are quoting or referring to, with the titles of articles in quotations, and the titles of books or Web sites italicized. In cases where the title contains a colon, use only the text before the colon in the in-text citation.



Titles

Titles of books, periodicals, art works, reports and Web sites are italicized. Please check the appropriate sample citation on this page to make sure you are using italics correctly.

Dates

With the exception of May, June and July, the names of the months must be abbreviated in MLA works cited lists as follows:

  • January = Jan.
  • February = Feb.
  • March = Mar.
  • April = Apr.
  • August = Aug.
  • September = Sept.
  • October= Oct.
  • November = Nov.
  • December = Dec.

Undated Sources: When the source you are citing has no publication date, simply omit that part of the citation. Do not write "No date" or "N.d.".

Source

Example

No date given

Jane Austen Society of Australia. "Sense & Sensibility." Jane Austen Society of North America. Map. www.jasna.org/info/images/map-ss-1200.jpg.



Volume and Issue Numbers

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.

Source

Example

Journal volume and issue number available

Child and Family Behavior Therapy, vol. 26, no.1, 2004, pp. 88-96.

Online periodical where volume and issue numbers are not given

Journal of Family Counseling, 2004.



Page Numbers


Source

Example

Page range whose first number is over 100

125-35 (not 125-135)

3200-22 (not 3200-3222)

Do not repeat any numbers that can be easily inferred by the reader. This is done to minimize the length of works cited lists.

Online periodical where page numbers are not given

Persuasions, vol. 35, no. 1, 2014, www.jasna.org/persuasions/on-line/vol35no1/byrd.html.

Simply omit page numbers and give the URL after the publication date.



Citing a Source within a Source

Scenario: You read an article by Robbins that cites, on page 270, another article by Wills. You want to cite Will's article, but you have not read Wills's article itself.

Works Cited List

In-Text Citation

Robbins, Michael. "Paul Muldoon's Covert Operations." Modern Philology, vol. 109, no. 2, 2011, pp. 266-99. JSTOR, doi:10.1086/663233.

Your Works Cited list will contain the article you read, by Robbins. Your Works Cited list will NOT contain a citation for Wills's article.

Wills (cited in Robbins 270) notes that...

Your in-text citation gives credit to Wills and shows the source in which you found Wills's idea.

If Robbins directly quotes another author and you want to use that direct quotation, include the abbreviation "qtd. in." For example:

As Freud wrote, "He himself, however, had not noticed this glaringly obvious connection" (qtd. in Robbins 272).



DOIs and URLs

Use a DOI number if one is available. Otherwise use a URL (particularly a  permalink or stable URL, if one is available), and remove the beginning "http://" or "https://" from the link in your citation.

Source

Example

DOI

Robbins, Michael. "Paul Muldoon's Covert Operations." Modern Philology, vol. 109, no. 2, 2011, pp. 266-99. JSTOR, doi:10.1086/663233.

APA: General

General Rules for APA Format

Author Rules:

Authors should be alphabetized by the last name of the first author of each work. If you want to cite multiple articles by the same author, list entries in chronological order from earliest to most recent.

Works With No Authors

If there is no author given, begin your citation with the name of the primary source/article.

Example:

Global Warming. (2006). San Diego: Greenhaven Press.

Citing One Author

When citing authors, use the last name followed by the first initial and middle initial (if given).

Structure:

Last, F. M.

Example:

Dickens, C.

Citing Two Authors

If you are citing more than one author, separate the authors by commas alphabetically. The first author should have their last name, first name and the additional authors should be cited simply with their first and last name.

Structure:

Last, F. M., Last, F. M., Last, F. M., Last, F. M., Last, F. M., Last, F. M., et al.

Citing More Than Six Authors

If there are more than six authors, cite the first six and then write "et al."

Example:

Dickens, C. & Bellow, S.

Author as an Organization

Write the organization as the author.

Example:

New York State Association of Counties. (2009).

Contributor Rules

Contributors

Sometimes the main contributor is not an author, but another contributor type, such as an editor or conductor. Follow the contributor by an abbreviation of the contributor type (i.e. Ed. or Cond.).

Example:
  • One editor:

    Smith, J. K. (Ed.). (Date). Title.

  • One conductor:

    Smith, J. K. (Cond). (Date). Title.

Note: If plural, then change the abbreviation accordingly.

Example:
  • Two editors:

    Smith, J. K., & Sampson, T. (Eds.). (Date). Title.

Date Rules

For a book

  • Place the year published information after the author information.

    Example: Bellow, S. (1999).

  • If there is no author, place the year published after the edition.

    Example: The Catcher in the Rye (1st ed.). (1951). Boston, MA: Little, Brown.

  • If the author information or edition/page number are not given, place the year published after the title of the piece.

    Example: The Catcher in the Rye. (1951). Boston, MA: Little, Brown.

Page Rules

  • Refer to a page with a "p."

    Example: p. 1

  • Numerous pages with a "pp."

    Example: pp.1-5

Style Rules

  • Italicize longer works including books and journals.
  • Do not italicize, underline, or put quotes around titles of short works, including journal articles or essays in edited collections.

Web Rules

URLs:

APA 6 recommends to only cite the homepage URL, and only the exact URL if the page is not properly indexed or easy to find from the homepage. For blog posts, user contributed content, and discussion forums, APA 6 recommends including the exact URL.

Date Retrieved:

APA 6 recommends including it only if the source material may change over time. Also keep in mind that you can use "Available from" instead of "Retrieved from" when the URL leads to information on how to obtain the cited material rather than to the material itself.

DOIs:

If an article has a digital object identifier (DOI) number, you need only the DOI number, and no URL or retrieval date.

As opposed to some sources published directly online (by a website), other sources may be originally in print, or in another medium, and found online. Cite these sources as you would in their original form, and then add the relevant web information (date accessed and URL).
