MLA Style

 

MLA style for documentation is widely used in the humanities, especially in writing on language and literature. Generally simpler and more concise than other styles, MLA style features brief parenthetical citations in the text keyed to an alphabetical list of works cited that appears at the end of the work.

Note that MLA updated to its 8th edition in 2016. Please make sure that you are accessing examples formatted using the correct version for your needs. MLA - What's new in the 8th edition?
