You are in luck! All EBSCO databases help you get citations. Here's how:
- Perform a search in any EBSCO database.
- Click on the title of any article from your list that you want to cite.
- Click on the cite icon on the right side of the article:
- A pop up window will appear with the article or eBook cited in multiple formats. MLA style is the second to last listed:
5. Copy the citation and paste into your works cited page.
Change It Tips:
- Delete the word EBSCO from the citation.
- If entire words in the citation are capitalized, change it so that only first letters are capitalized.
- Make sure it is formatted double spaced with a .5" hanging indent on your works cite page.
It Should Look Like:
Brinkworth, Russell, et al. “First year expectations and experiences: student and teacher
perspectives.” Higher Education 58.2 (2009):157-73. Academic Search Complete.
