For complete information, please consult the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research A corporate author--as distinguished from a personal author--is a commission, an association, an institute, etc., which bears the primary responsibility for the content of the book, and whose individual members are not identified on the title page of the book.
When citing a work--essay, short story, poem, etc.--from within an anthology, list the entry by the author of the piece referred to.
The title of the piece should be in quotation marks.
Add the citation to the larger work, beginning with its title, followed by the name(s) of the editor(s), translator(s) or compiler(s) (first name last name), as shown below.
Information Needed in MLA In-text Citations: There are two main elements that must be included in all MLA in-text citations: 1. Note: If there is no individual author named, there will often be a corporate author, which refers to the name of the group/agency/company that published the original information. Any print source (newspaper, magazine, journal, book,etc.) will have a page number.
This is often the case with governmental sources, which are published under the name of the government agency rather than with an individual(s) name. When using these, provide the page number where the actual information (be it a quote, statistic, etc.) appears in the original source.
There are several ways to do this, depending on how the information is located.
Note: If a long, block quotation such as this is used, the period is placed in front of the parenthesis that begins the citation, not after.
