MLA Journal Citation

Citations reflect the careful and thorough work you have put into locating and exploring your sources. Periodicals (e.g. magazines, newspapers, and scholarly journals) that appear in print require the same medium of publication designator—Print—as books. In fact MLA Style method for citing abovementioned materials and the items required for these entries are quite different from MLA book citations. For full information on citing periodicals, look up for “Citing Periodical Print Publications” in the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers 8th edition.

To perform a decent bibliography using MLA journal citation generator you should have flowing information on article:

  • Author(s),
  • Title of article,
  • Title of journal volume,
  • Issue (year), pages,
  • Medium of publication.

In previous years, MLA journal citation required that researchers determine whether or not a scholarly journal employed continuous pagination (page numbers began at page one in the first issue of the years and page numbers took up where they left off in subsequent ones) or non-continuous pagination (page numbers begin at page one in every subsequent issue) in order to determine whether or not to include issue numbers in bibliographic entries. Always provide issue numbers, when available.

When an article appears in a special issue of a journal, provide the name of the special issue in the entry’s title space, and end with a period. MLA citation generator will add the descriptor “Spec. issue of” and include the name of the journal, in italics, followed by the rest of the information required for a standard scholarly MLA journal citation.
