MLA Style Sheet
There are various guidelines on how to quote in scholarly texts. The Modern Language Association, New York, has published the so-called MLA Handbook which helps you with how to do research and cite properly. Several American universities have transcribed the MLA-Style Sheet onto the Internet in more or less detail. These manuals are designed as hypertexts where you just have to click the item you need without having to browse through the entire text. We have created links to three of those MLA manual and style sheet sites on the Internet. In addition, we also provide our own short version of the MLA style sheet. Choose the one that suits your needs best.


Here's a link to a web site neatly explaining the common academic abbreviations such as cf., e.g., or ibid.
