Initials are provided after the last name only if when the article refers to several authors with the same name. If two or more works are referred to, they are presented in chronological order, separated by semicolons, e.g. [Carter 2013, 9; Heisig 2001, 5]. If the reference is to the collective volume, encyclopedia, dictionary, etc., the incipit of the title is provided: [Manzil ... 2013].

Basic structure

List in alphabetical order by the surname of the leading author (surname that appears first in the cited work).

  • Surname, initials
  • ( Year of publication )
  • Name
  • Publisher, place of publication, magazine, etc.
  • Exact links.

The order of placement of links

The list of links is arranged alphabetically by author's name. If there is more than one link in the list of the same author, they should be arranged in chronological order of publication. If the author has more than one publication in the list in one year, it is necessary to use 2000a, 2000b, etc.

Sorting a list of references by more than one co-author always follows the following rules:

  • three co-authors follow two, four authors follow three, and so on;
  • sorting alphabetically by the name of the first author, then the second co-author and so on;
  • sorting by name is more important than sorting by date.

The punctuation should be as follows:

  • two authors, separated by "and" and without commas;
  • several authors are separated by commas, but the last surname must be connected "and" and without a comma.
