Before we look at an example list and entry, here are some things to remember about your works cited list: Let’s take a look at one example from a Works Cited list to get an idea about how entries should be formatted.
The first entry on this Works Cited list is a journal article found within a database.
Images should be placed near the related text and labeled as Figure, which is typically abbreviated as Fig.
# to show the number of images contained within your piece.
To do so in Microsoft Word, go to View and select Header from the list.
Type your information in the header box, highlight it, and hit the right justify selection.
While your own teachers’ preferences may vary, MLA is the basic form that most teachers use. A standard choice for the font is 12 point Times New Roman, and you should keep your text left justified.
It's also recommended that you do not use automatic hyphenation features and that you only use one space after a period or other punctuation mark unless you're told otherwise. Starting one inch from the top of the page, left justified, place your name, your teacher's name, your class, and the date.
There are specific publication elements of journal articles from databases that you should provide.
You will first provide the original publication information in the first “container.” This includes the author, the title of the article, the title of the journal, the volume number, the issue number, and the date.
