MLA format for In-text Citations and Works Cited Page
An in-text citation is required when you are using someone else's IDEA or WORDS. Use parenthesis around the author's last name or, if there is no author listed, a shortened version of the title within quotation marks. For example:
(Pappas). or ("Adoption").
A Works Cited page lists all your sources of information. Opposing Viewpoints in Context has each article's MLA citation at the bottom of the page; just copy and paste into a Word document. Organize your citations in alphabetical order and don't forget to indent the second line.
