    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 smile

        this would only apply to websites though, not books! smile

    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.
