Periodical Citations Print Page


Citations contain enough details to efficiently locate a publication. They usually include the author, title, and date of publication. Citations for periodicals also include the periodical title, volume, issue, and page numbers. Citations for books also include the place of publication and the publisher. Other formats include other unique details.

When you write a research paper, you will prepare a list of citations (a Works Cited page) for every resource from which you obtained information. MLA citation style will be discussed in the final chapter of this workbook and in the MLA Guide.
