What are scholarly journals?
|How can you identify a scholarly journal article?
Why should I use Reference sources?
Use MLA style to create citations in the humanities
"What is the purpose of citations?"
Citations show the research path taken to develop an idea, and they provide leads for other researchers to discover information in related resources.
"When do I need to cite?"
Of course you need to cite when you directly quote someone else, but it's also important to cite when you refer to another person's ideas or when you outline someone else's argument or line of reasoning.
EXAMPLE of MLA Style on a Works Cited page for an article retrieved from a database:
Homer, Michael Bennett. "Frankenfish … It's What's For Dinner: The FDA, Genetically Engineered Salmon, And The Flawed Regulation Of Biotechnology." Columbia Journal Of Law & Social Problems 45.5 (2011): 83-137. Academic Search Complete. Web. 21 Jan. 2013.
thus the formula is:
Author. "Title of Article." Title of Journal volume #. issue # (year): page number range. Name of Database. Web. Date
of access [day month year].
