A Comparison of MLA and APA citation styles

In-text parenthetical citation:

End-of-text bibliography:

Both MLA and APA include the same basic information:

  1. Author's name
  2. Title of book/article
  3. Journal title*
  4. Year of publication
  5. Publisher
  6. Place of publication
  7. Volume number*
  8. Pages*
* = applies to journal articles
  Electronic sources:

See the MLA's website for correct electronic source citation style. But in general, here's what should be included:

 See the APA's website for electronic source citation style (http://www.apa.org/journals/webref.html). APA style follows the style for print sources closely. Open with author, date, and title. Then follow with a denotation of the type of electronic source, and follow up with the URL or the source location information.
