More than a decade ago, as high school students, the founders of Workscited9u observed that many of their classmates seemed to be cutting corners when it came to properly attributing sources. Much of the problem had to do with the tedium of figuring out the proper citation methods, and thought that if works cited formatting could be made simpler, easier, and maybe even a little fun, authors would be properly attributed and students would have a good time citing their publications - a win win!
We are educators, citation specialists, primary source authorities, and academic researchers. That expertise is baked into our platform design and services.
Medical errors are common in intensive care units. Nurses are uniquely positioned to identify, interrupt, and correct medical errors and to minimize preventable adverse outcomes. Nurses are increasingly recognized as playing a role in reducing medical errors, but only recently have their error-recovery strategies been described.
Use secondary sources sparingly, for instance, when the original work is out of print, unavailable through usual sources, or not available in English. Give the secondary source in the reference list in text, name the original work and give a citation for the secondary source.
When using a direct quote or paraphrasing information from a source, add an in-text citation into the body of your work. Direct quotes are word-for-word quotes that are pulled from a source and added into your project. A paraphrase is taking a section of information from a source and placing it in your own words. Both direct quotes and paraphrases require in-text, or parenthetical citations, to follow it.
To include someone other than the author at the beginning of the citation, place their name in reverse order, add a comma afterwards, and then the role of that individual followed by a comma.
In MLA formatting, the purpose of the in text citation is to give the reader a brief idea as to where you found your information. If the reader plans to investigate the original source further, they can find the full citation in the Works Cited list.
Bibliography formatting is not easy for students to learn. The Workscited9u approach makes bibliography creation a breeze with its simple to use platform.
Most authors choose the system used by others in their field or required by their publisher. Students who are unsure of which system to use will find more information here.
A website is a collection of informational pages on the Internet. Creating a citation for your website in MLA format usually requires you to identify the website author, website title, website publisher, and the date you accessed the information. You'll also need to remember the date you used the website on your bibliography.

The main styles used at AU are as follows - if you need to use another style click here. Those with large research projects should strongly consider a citation manager like Zotero or Endnote. Students can use citation generators like BibMe , Son of a Citation Machine , or EasyBib , but you must ALWAYS check your citations using the resources below:
When MLA citing websites, include URLs. Also, for MLA citing websites, remove the beginning of the web address as it is not necessary to include http:// or https://. If a DOI number is present, use it in place of a URL.
Don’t forget, BibMe’s MLA cite generator creates MLA citations for you quickly and easily! Our MLA formatter creates many citation styles, including MLA 8.
