Citation style in the reference list and in-text


Scientific articles will be considered only in the case of the presence of a standard scientific apparatus in the text, which implies citing literature in accordance with the standards of the Chicago Manual of Style (Available at:


The reference list should be listed in Latin letters. When the references are originally Cyrillic, they should be transferred to the Serbian Latin alphabet, and for transliteration with e.g. Greek, Russian, etc. use the ISO 09 standard.


Citations are in text body. A citation in the text usually appears in parentheses and includes only the first two elements in a reference list – the author and the year of publication with no intervening punctuation. If page number is given, it should be separated by a comma. For example:


(D’Andrade 1995)  ili (D’Andrade 1995, 37) ili (Strauss and Quinn 1997, 121-136) ili (Ковачевић и др. 2008, 25-9).


A reference list is given at the end of the paper, and it is listed alphabetically with regard to authors’ family or last name. If there are several references by the same author in the same year, they are marked with letters (a, b, c, etc.). In-text references and the reference list should be in Latin script, regardless of the original, that is, the script in which they were printed, for the sake of better visibility of references, and therefore better visibility of citations.


Footnotes (notes) at the bottom of the page are used to indicate less important details, additional explanations, indications about the sources used (such as scientific materials, web pages, manuals, etc.). If an author is cited in a footnote, it is done in the same way as in the main text.


Citation in-text is done in the following way:


Books (monographs):


If there are two or more authors, the first author’s surname is listed first, followed by the names and surnames of the remaining authors. When cited in the text, only the name of the first author is given and an abbreviation et al. is added. After the name of the author, the year of publication is stated, then the name of the book, and then the place of publication is stated first, followed by the publisher, separated by a colon. If there are several publishers, they are separated by hyphens, and if there are several places of publication, only the name of the first place is listed.
