Rules for MLA Works Cited Page

The works cited page should remain on a separate page. All entries should be double spaced, and margins of no more or less than one inch should exist at the top, sides and bottoms. The Works Cited page should be titled ‘Works Cited’ and should not include quotation marks, bold text style or in any way effected (except for capitalization. Each entry line should flush left, with all subsequent related lines indented ½ inch.

To properly cite a book in MLA format, you need to have the author’s name, the title of the book, year of publication, as well as the place of publication and the book’s publisher. If it’s actually noted, the book’s edition should me noted too. The arrangement for each citation is as followed:

Author(s). Title. Edition. Place of Publication. Publisher, Year of Publication.

An example as such:

Tarpley, Webster. 9/11: Synthetic Terror.

New York: Simon and Schuster, 2005
