1 I did a search on JSTOR for “Chaucer” and “Gender” and found this full-text source.

2 Citing Sources This is what the scholarly article looked like when I pulled it up.

3 This provides all of the information that I need to write a complete MLA citation.

4 Author’s last name, first name. “Title of Essay.” Name of Journal Vol.Issue (Year): Inclusive page numbers. Medium. This is all of the information that you need to cite an essay from a scholarly journal—if it isn’t electronic.

5 Hanning, first name. “Title of Essay.” Name of Journal Vol.Issue (Year): Inclusive page numbers. Medium. The last name goes first only for alphabetizing purposes; therefore, second authors and other names within the citation are in the normal order: the first name goes first.

6 Hanning, Robert H. “Title of Essay.” Name of Journal Vol.Issue (Year): Inclusive page numbers. Medium. The first name goes second followed by any initial. Titles such as “Dr.” are not included.

7 Hanning, Robert H. “From Eva to Ava to Eglentyne to Alisoun: Chaucer’s Insight Into the Roles Women Play.” Name of Journal Vol.Issue (Year): Inclusive page numbers. Medium. The full title of the essay is next, in quotation marks. If there is a title (of a play, for example) within the essay title, it is underlined or in italics. Capitalize the significant title words even if that is not the case in the original. Do not put it in capitals even if it is all in capitals in the original.

8 Hanning, Robert H. “From Eva to Ava to Eglentyne to Alisoun: Chaucer’s Insight Into the Roles Women Play.” Signs Vol.Issue (Year): Inclusive page numbers. Medium. The name of the journal is capitalized and put in italics or underlined (be consistent throughout the citation and the works cited page). There is no punctuation between the name of the journal and the volume—just a space.

9 Hanning, Robert H. “From Eva to Ava to Eglentyne to Alisoun: Chaucer’s Insight Into the Roles Women Play.” Signs 2.Issue (Year): Inclusive page numbers. Medium. The volume number is listed before the issue number. There is no “V” or “vol”; we know what it is by its placement in the citation.

10 Hanning, Robert H. “From Eva to Ava to Eglentyne to Alisoun: Chaucer’s Insight Into the Roles Women Play.” Signs 2.3 (Year): Inclusive page numbers. Medium A period is placed between the volume and issue number.

11 Hanning, Robert H. “From Eva to Ava to Eglentyne to Alisoun: Chaucer’s Insight Into the Roles Women Play.” Signs 2.3 (1977): Inclusive page numbers. Medium. The year only is placed in parenthesis after the issue (there is a space between the issue number and the first parenthesis). It is followed by a colon.

12 Hanning, Robert H. “From Eva to Ava to Eglentyne to Alisoun: Chaucer’s Insight Into the Roles Women Play.” Signs 2.3 (1977): Print. There is a space after the colon and then the full page numbers are listed; this is not the page that you use but the first page of the essay to the last page of the essay. The page that you cite within the essay or annotated text will, of course, fall within the pages listed on your works cited page. Put “Print” as the medium if it is a printed source. If this were not an electronic source, this would be a complete citation for a scholarly journal essay.

13 Hanning, Robert H. “From Eva to Ava to Eglentyne to Alisoun: Chaucer’s Insight Into the Roles Women Play.” Signs 2.3: Database. Date of access. Medium. This information needs to be added to any full text source that is found in an electronic database.

14 Hanning, Robert H. “From Eva to Ava to Eglentyne to Alisoun: Chaucer’s Insight Into the Roles Women Play.” Signs 2.3: JSTOR. Medium. Date of access. JSTOR is both the name of the database and the name of the service. I found this out from Lauren Jensen, our public services librarian.

15 Hanning, Robert H. “From Eva to Ava to Eglentyne to Alisoun: Chaucer’s Insight Into the Roles Women Play.” Signs 2.3: JSTOR. Web. 13 Oct Put “Web” for electronic sources. The date of access is when you found it. Put the day first, the abbreviated month next (with period) and the year last.

16 Citing (Gale) Literature Resource Center Rozga, Margaret. "Threatening Places, Hiding Places: The Midwest in Selected Stories by Joyce Carol Oates." Midwestern Miscellany 18 (1990): Reprinted in Contemporary Literary Criticism. Literature Resource Center. Web.13 Oct Several of you are using the Gale Literature Resource Center, which reprints essays published elsewhere. Here is a model citation for that source, which I took from their site. It has the original citation, the electronic information, and in between, acknowledges that it has been reprinted.

19 Citing Books Goldberg, Jonathan, ed. Queering the Renaissance. Durham: Duke U P, Print. This is a citation for an entire book that was edited by Jonathan Goldberg.

20 Citing Books Goldberg, Jonathan, ed. Chapter. Queering the Renaissance. Durham: Duke U P, Page numbers. Print. If you are only citing or annotating a chapter of the book then clarify that by adding the name of the chapter and the inclusive page numbers for that chapter. A chapter is the smallest unit of a book that can be cited.

21 Citing Books Goldberg, Jonathan, ed. Chapter Two. Queering the Renaissance. Durham: Duke U P, Page numbers. Print. I’m citing the second chapter.

22 Citing Books Goldberg, Jonathan, ed. Chapter Two. Queering the Renaissance. Durham: Duke U P, Print. The second chapter begins on page 40 and ends on page 62.

23 Citing Books Goldberg, Jonathan, ed. Chapter Two. Queering the Renaissance. Durham: Duke U P, Print. While Goldberg is the editor (and wrote a chapter) of this book, he did not write the second chapter. The editor’s name moves to after the name of the book.

24 Citing Books Chapter Two. Queering the Renaissance. Goldberg, Jonathan, ed. Durham: Duke U P, Print.

25 Citing Books Chapter Two. Queering the Renaissance. Jonathan Goldberg, ed. Durham: Duke U P, Print. Because it is no longer needed for alphabetizing purposes, his last name goes last, etc.

26 Citing Books Bray, Alan. Chapter Two. Queering the Renaissance. Jonathan Goldberg, ed. Durham: Duke U P, Print. Alan Bray actually wrote the second chapter in this book.

27 Citing Books Bray, Alan. “Homosexuality and the Signs of Male Friendship.” Queering the Renaissance. Jonathan Goldberg, ed. Durham: Duke U P, Print. If the essay has a title beyond just “Chapter Two,” include the more descriptive title in quotation marks and capitalize it as you would any essay.

28 Laqueur, Thomas. Making Sex: Body and Gender From the Greeks to Freud. Cambridge, MA: Harvard UP, Print. This book by Thomas Laqueur was completely written by Laqueur.

29 Laqueur, Thomas. Chapter Four. Making Sex: Body and Gender From the Greeks to Freud. Cambridge, MA: Harvard UP, – 148. Print. If I wanted to cite a chapter only, I would add the chapter and page number information.

30 Laqueur, Thomas. “Representing Sex.” Making Sex: Body and Gender From the Greeks to Freud. Cambridge, MA: Harvard UP, – 148. Print. Chapter Four of Laqueur’s book has a specific title, however, so I go with the more descriptive chapter title.

31 Laqueur, Thomas. “Representing Sex.” Making Sex: Body and Gender From the Greeks to Freud. Cambridge, MA: Harvard UP, – 148. Print. This is the full citation for a chapter in a book in which each chapter is written by the same author without an editor.

32 Citing Paraphrases and Summaries of More Than One Sentence

33 In The Tempest, Prospero is a figure of colonialism. Shakespeare culled source materials from an essay on the New World for his description of Prospero’s island, and the descriptions and treatment of Caliban echoes and reflects the behavior of colonists of the New World. This is a summary or paraphrase of two sentences that I made up for demonstrative purposes.

34 In The Tempest, Prospero is a figure of colonialism. Shakespeare culled source materials from an essay on the New World for his description of Prospero’s island, and the descriptions and treatment of Caliban echoes and reflects the behavior of colonists of the New World (Greenblatt 145). Citing this way is the most common citation problem that I see with students. It is a good attempt but it is not a complete citation.

35 In The Tempest, Prospero is a figure of colonialism. Shakespeare culled source materials from an essay on the New World for his description of Prospero’s island, and the descriptions and treatment of Caliban echoes and reflects the behavior of colonists of the New World (Greenblatt 145). As it is cited, only the green text is cited; the first sentence is from the source but is not cited.

36 In his essay on the language and education of Caliban, Stephen Greenblatt explains that in The Tempest, Prospero is a figure of colonialism. Shakespeare culled source materials from an essay on the New World for his description of Prospero’s island, and the descriptions and treatment of Caliban echoes and reflects the behavior of colonists of the New World (Greenblatt 145). You must put the author’s name in the first sentence of a multi-sentence summary or paraphrase—with no page number until the summary/ paraphrase is completed.

37 In his essay on the language and education of Caliban, Stephen Greenblatt explains that in The Tempest, Prospero is a figure of colonialism. Shakespeare culled source materials from an essay on the New World for his description of Prospero’s island, and the descriptions and treatment of Caliban echoes and reflects the behavior of colonists of the New World (Greenblatt 145).

38 If you have the author’s name within the summary/ paraphrase, you do not put his or her name in the parenthesis—only the page number).

39 In his essay on the language and education of Caliban, Stephen Greenblatt explains that in The Tempest, Prospero is a figure of colonialism. Shakespeare culled source materials from an essay on the New World for his description of Prospero’s island, and the descriptions and treatment of Caliban echoes and reflects the behavior of colonists of the New World (145). This is the full and correct citation for a summary or paraphrase of more than one sentence.
