MLA announced in April 2016 MLA Handbook will henceforth be "the authoritative source for MLA style", and that the 2008 third edition of the MLA Style Manual would be the final edition of the larger work.
The announcement also stated that the organization "is in the process of developing additional publications to address the professional needs of scholars." The first five editions, published between 19 were titled the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations.
