How to Format a Research Paper
Modern Language Association(MLA) Style

The following document introduces the reader to the basic information needed to produce a correctly formatted research paper. This site will not provide a sample paper although links will be provided later. This paper will discuss the various elements needed, but, as always, you should ask your instructor what his or her guidelines are. For the sake of space this will be single spaced although your paper will be double spaced. Visit the MLA Home page for more detailed information. Formatting Guidelines
