How do I cite a source that comes from a webpage???
I am writing an illustrative essay for college and do not completely understand works cited pages, and in-text citations. This needs to be in MLA format.
I looked through examples in the book, but they do not give a clear cut answer.
I have an article on the internet that I need to give reference to but do not know what to write in parenthesis in the text of my essay.
Here is the source. http://www.drugalcoholaddictionrecovery.com/?p=22
Usually, depending on university, you would start of something like
Author of Page; Year of publish or last update; Article (or page) name; website address (exact); and dated cited.
Hope it helps
The thing is, there is not an author to that page. There is a title, name of website, and date it was published.
I believe the it would look like this in works cited:
"The Effects of Addiction on Family and Friends." Drug & Alcohol Addiction, Recovery Magazine. 19, Nov. 2008. Web. 27, Mar. 2011
However, I don't know how I would put it in the text.

I am trying out MLA format citing in the hubs. When citing, I am including the link in the Works cited area. The link is not blue, or live. I know we can only have 1 link to any given source, so should I still hyperlink in the text? If so should I hyperlink the article name in the in text cite, or...

I wrote a hub recently about MS drug trial results. A lot of it was flagged for being 'duplicate'. I tried my best to quote the exact texts appearing in the article, and re-word the data that I reported, that was taken from several other sources. There really was no other way to put the majority of...

I noticed a significant increase in traffic to one of my hubs and investigated where it was coming from by checking the stats. My hub was cited as a reference at the SAMHSA funded ATTC (Addiction Technology Transfer Center)Network! Here is a link to their article: ...
