There are some differences between MLA 8th and MLA 7th edition. The differences are:

For MLA 8th edition

  • Page numbers in the works cited list (not the in-text citation) are preceded by p. or pp.

  • For books the place of publication is omitted, only the publisher’s name is included.

  • The volume and issue numbers are clearly indicated as vol. 4, no. 1. Any month or season information is also included: vol. 35, no. 3, July 2014, pp. 335-46.

  • Date of access should be included for online works.

  • MLA recommends that the URL be included in a website citation. Omit the http:// when entering URL. Do not put angle signs (carets) around the web address. The DOI (digital object identifier) number is preferred if available.
