Select and format the publication date based on what is relevant to your use of the work.
- Multiple dates may be listed
- For example, if you are viewing an online version of a print magazine article and both publication dates are listed, use the online version date since that is what you are viewing.
- Including day, month, year, and even time
- If any of these are listed and are relevant, include them.
For more information on formatting publishers and publication dates, see pages 40-46 in the MLA Handbook.
