MLA is an abbreviation which stands for Modern Language Association. MLA style is a set of guidelines for writing, formatting, and citing sources in scholarly works and student research papers and is most commonly used in the humanities and liberal arts.
In MLA, you must "cite" sources that you have paraphrased, quoted or otherwise used to write your research paper. Cite your sources in two places:

Behavior analysis is necessary for society because "almost all major problems involve human behavior" (Skinner 24).
Skinner, B.F. Beyond Freedom and Dignity. Alfred A. Knopf, 1971, p. 24.
Each entry on a works cited list is made up of elements that are common to most works and appear in a specific order. The correct punctuation appears at the end of each core element.
