Category: GuidelinesFormatting dissertation: MLA format

I have some major issue while formatting my research in MLA format. I have tried doing it, I have also asked my friends to help but still, there are some minor mistakes which i always make. I am not at all clear about them. Also, I have no idea how to do citation in MLA format and also, it is taking too much time to edit it because i don’t know the shortcuts.
So, please help me with that. I need someone’s help very badly as i am very much irritated with the editing thing because my submission deadline is near and my format is always wrong.

First of all, keep calm as there are solution to every problem. There is One standard citation format that applies to every source type.The core elements of a citation, along with their corresponding punctuation marks, include the following:
Authors.
Title of the source.
Title of container,
Other contributors,
Version,
Numbers,
Publisher,
Publication date,
Location.
The appropriate punctuation mark must follow each core element. I am also sharing one example with you Source
Author(s) Last Name, First Name. “Title of Source.” Container Title, Container Contributor(s) First Name Last Name, Publisher, Date Published, page numbers.
I think this will be help you in your citation.
