Modern Language Association New Handbook does away with print as the default style
The Modern Language Assocation’s (MLA) new style guide for citing sources in research has done away with print being the default style. They have also done away with citing the URL of an electronic resource found on the web!
The Modern Language Association’s styles are long the standard in humanities research, could other style guides be far behind? With much of the medical research being published in electronic journals now how will other citation standards change?
Ars Technica has a short article with comments discussing the changes as well as a link to the MLA’s new guide.
