“The Indicators of School Crime and Safety provides the most recent national indicators
on school crime and safety. These indicators demonstrate that improvements have
occurred in the safety of students: between 1992 and 2002, the violent crime
victimization rate at school declined from 48 violent victimizations per 1,000 students
in 1992 to 24 such victimizations in 2002. Even so, violence, theft, bullying, drugs,
and firearms are still prevalent: students ages 12–18 were victims of about 659,000
violent crimes and 1.1 million crimes of theft at school in 2002.”

MLA 8

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.
