So I need to cite an article in this sentence: According to an article from the Huffington Post titled "Textual Harassment-- Another Form of Bullying", “it means repeatedly sending offensive, inappropriate, and unsolicited texts aimed at bullying, threatening, or degrading victims. Sexual messages, unflattering video and photo texts and demeaning comments all contribute to incidents of textual harassment.”
How would I go about correctly citing it in MLA format?
You need to have each source of information cited in TWO places:
1. the Works Cited page that is placed after the last page of your paper, and
2. in parentheses in the text of your paper, immediately after the quotation or paraphrase.
The information in the Works Cited page is to be complete and detailed.
The information in parentheses in the text needs to be as brief as possible.
This is a good place for information on citing in MLA format:
Actually, since you've named the title of the online article you're quoting from, I don't think anything needs to be in parentheses.
Just make sure the complete reference is included in your Works Cited, though.
