Version,

The source you are citing using the MLA style may have more than one version. Books, for instance, can have several editions.

  • If your source has an edition number, write the number then “ed.” followed by a comma. If the edition has a description include it before the “ed.”
  • Other media can also have several versions. Write out the description as given in the source followed by a comma.
  • Note that the description starts with a capital letter when it directly follows the title of the source.

Examples:

4th ed.,

revised ed.,

Canadian ed.,

director’s cut,

abridged version,
