  2. Click on create citation when you are finished.

  3. When you think you have completed your works cited page, you must make sure it is in MLA format. Follow the guidelines listed below:

All entries in the Works Cited page must correspond to the works cited in your main text (if you do not use it in your essay, do not put it on your works cited page).

Basic Rules

  • Begin your Works Cited page on a separate page at the end of your essay. It should have the same one-inch margins and heading that the rest of your paper has.

  • Label (Title) the page Works Cited (do not italicize the words Works Cited or put them in quotation marks) and center the words Works Cited at the top of the page.

  • Double space all citations, but do not skip spaces between entries.

  • Indent the second and subsequent lines of citations five spaces so that you create a hanging indent.

  • List page numbers of sources efficiently, when needed. If you refer to a journal article that appeared on pages 225 through 250, list the page numbers on your Works Cited page as 225-50.

Common mistakes:

  1. Choosing the wrong type of source. Is your article from a magazine or an academic journal?

  2. Forgetting to specify where the source came from (online, book, database, etc.)

  3. Not knowing the different between the article title and the journal title (Article title will appear in quotes and journal title will be italicized)

  4. Getting editor/contributor/publisher confused

  5. Confusing the database title with the title of the journal (Example of a database title: Student Resource Center Gold)

  6. Confusing the website with the URL

  7. Confusing the words “site” and “cite” (Hint: You visited your friend at a construction site to ask her how to cite the website Home Improvement for Dummies.)
