“There are several federal initiatives that are specifically focused on student bullying, including
interagency initiatives. In addition, there are a variety of federal initiatives that are not solely or
primarily focused on student bullying, but permit some funds to be used for this purpose.
Representatives from the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Defense, Education, Health and
Human Services, the Interior, and Justice, as well as the Federal Trade Commission and the White
House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, have formed a Federal Partners in
Bullying Prevention Steering Committee. The Federal Partners work to coordinate policy,
research, and communications on bullying topics. The Federal Partners have created a website,
http://www.stopbullying.gov, which provides extensive resources on bullying, including
information on how schools can address bullying.”

The 8th edition of MLA has resulted in changes to the citation format. Correcting the citations on our website will take some time. Until then, please reference the guidelines below to correct the citation format. You will still be using the information provided here, but you may need to adjust the format for MLA 8.

Most MLA citations on our site should follow this format:

Author, A. Title of Source. Publisher, Date, URL. Accessed, 1 Jan 2050.
"Web." removed
  • Medium of publication does not need to be stated if obvious.
  • Listing the "name of the site" is not necessary if it is the same as the name of the publisher.
No brackets around URLs
  • URLs should be placed after the publication date, separated by a comma, and before the date accessed, with a period at the end.

For citing an article in a scholarly journal you will use the journal title instead of publisher, and retain any volume, issue, and page numbers. Use a DOI in place of URL if one is available.
