Q

Where are the page numbers for Gale articles for in text citations?

Hello,

I have a question. I am using 5 Gale articles for my
English paper and am wondering where to find the
page numbers in the article to make an intext citation.

Thank you in advance!

Answer

As with anything in MLA style, you cannot include in your citation something that does not exist. When requested information is not available in MLA style, you skip it. Very few online sources have page numbers. If you look at our In Text Citation page in our Cite MLA Style guide you will find examples of an in text citation with Page Number Unknown, With or Without Known Author:

Example no page number:

The utilitarianism of the Victorians “attempted to reduce decision-making about human actions to a ‘felicific calculus’” (Everett).
