Some MLA style research papers will include a title page. The student can check with the professor to find out whether a title page is required. A title page will include the student's name, the professor's name, the course name and number, and the date in the upper left hand corner. The title appears underneath this information, centered on the page. The text of the MLA style research paper begins one double space later. All MLA style research paper pages including the title page must display a header in the top right corner with the student's last name and the page number.
Format for entries: A single space is used after any punctuation mark. When dividing a long word or URL onto two lines, put hyphen, slash, or period at the end of the line. Do not add a hyphen to a URL that was not originally there. Never begin a new line with a punctuation mark. Double-space all lines in a bibliography entry. Do not indent the first line of a bibliography entry, indent second and subsequent lines 5 spaces, or 1/2″ ( cm) from the left margin. Please see Chapter 11. Guidelines on How to Write a Bibliography for details.
