Always use quotations when citing an article.
MLA format for quotes less than four lines long = "quote" (author name(space)page #).

DO NOT place a comma between author's name and the page number on which the quote was found, simply space.
Do place a period after the actual citation [ (author name(space)page#). ]

MLA format for quotes longer than four lines = Inset block quote.
Tab over an inch (10 spaces) and begin the quote without quotation marks.
Continue to keep the quote inset by an inch. Finish without quotation marks.
Simply add the generic (name(space)#).

Remember to introduce your quotes. This can be accomplished by stating the author's degrees ( PhD, MD, etc.) and the university at which they teach or at which they received the degrees. For example : As Dr. Soandso of X University, PhD, states in an article for "Y Quarterly", "quote" (Soandso #).
