Which journals paginate by volume? Which by number?

mla8thFile this one under esoteric news you can use. Now that the MLA Handbook, 8th edition, pp. 39-40 has reverted to the old rule (If the journal is paginated by ISSUE, include the issue number. If it’s paginated by VOLUME, don’t.), here’s a reference list of some journals according to their numbering systems. Journals change their systems from time to time, so if you see an error, please let me know: campbelld@wsu.edu
