How do I cite a serialized article?

Create a separate works-cited-list entry for each part of a serialized article or for each article published in a series, following the MLA format template. You may include the name of the series, if known, at the end of entries for articles published in a series.

An article published in two parts:

Sedgwick, Eve Kosofsky. “Epistemology of the Closet.” Raritan, vol. 7, no. 4, Spring 1988, pp. 36–69.

---.“Epistemology of the Closet (II).” Raritan, vol. 8, no. 1, Summer 1988, pp. 102–30.

An article published as part of a series:

Glatter, Hayley, et al. “When Homework Is Useless.” The Atlantic, 31 Aug. 2016,
homework-who-needs-it/497966/. Educational Eden: Imagining the Ideal School System.

Glatter, Hayley, et al. “Reimagining the Modern Classroom.” The Atlantic, 2 Sept. 2016,
archive/2016/09/ reimagining-the-modern-classroom/498224/. Educational Eden: Imagining the Ideal School System.
