Why Do We Cite?

Why MLA Style?

MLA style citation is a standardized set of guidelines used in the Arts and Humanities (for example, in English courses). It includes guidelines for formatting your paper, citing sources in the text of your paper, and citing sources at the end of your paper.

The 9th edition of the MLA Handbook includes expanded instructions on using the core elements of citation as well as more writing recommendations than previous editions.
