MLA article citation

Citations show your readers where you obtained your material, provides a means of critiquing your study, and offers the opportunity to obtain additional information about the research problem under investigation. The act of citing sources is also a defense against allegations of plagiarism. The most accessible pathway to cite any source used, beginning from image, book of unknown author or movie, is to operate citation generator. To build a proper citation for article from scholarly journal within MLA citation generator apply followed information:

  • name of author(s),
  • full title of article,
  • title of Journal,
  • volume number of journal,
  • issue number of journal,
  • year of publication,
  • page numbers of article,
  • medium of publication.

In previous years, MLA style guide 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. The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers 8th edition eliminates this step. Always provide issue numbers, when available.

When an article appears in a special issue of a journal, cite the name of the special issue in the entry’s title space, and end with a period. The descriptor “Spec. issue of” will be added.
