  • Breaking Down MLA and APA A look into using the APA and MLA work citing formats
  • What are APA and MLA?
  • APA • APA- Stands for: American Psychological Association. • Who they are: Based in Washington, DC, the American Psychological Association (APA) is a scientific and professional organization that represents psychology in the United States. With 150,000 members, APA is the largest association of psychologists worldwide. (“American Psychological Association,” n.d.) View slide

  • MLA • MLA-Stands for: Modern Language Association. • Who they are: Founded in 1883, the Modern Language Association of America provides opportunities for its members to share their scholarly findings and teaching experiences with colleagues and to discuss trends in the academy. MLA members host annual conventions and other meetings, work with related organizations, and sustain one of the finest publishing programs in humanities. (“Modern Language Association” 3/15/09)
  • The Reason We Use MLA • All fields of research agree on the need to document scholarly borrowings, but documentation conventions vary because of the different needs of scholarly disciplines. MLA style for documentation is widely used in the humanities, especially in writing on language and literature. Generally simpler and more concise than other styles, MLA style features brief parenthetical citations in the text keyed to an alphabetical list of works cited that appears at the end of the work. (“Modern Language Association” 3/15/09) • The MLA standard would more regularly be used in language and literature fields of study.
  • MLA Standards for Essays • Typed essay • Double-spaced • Standard sized paper (8.5 x 11in) • 1inch margins on all sides • Times New Roman font or similar • 12 pt font • Header that numbers all pages consecutively in the upper right-hand corner, one-half inch from the top and flush with the right margin.
