Harvard reference style is to be used in our journal. Within the text author-year reference should be used. The quotation in the text is linked with the bibliographical item by the author’s name and the year of publication. These two data are the basis of the reference. After the citation comes the author’s name and the year of publication, in round brackets e.g. (Gosy, 1998). In case of an edited volume, e.g. (Pandi ed. 1965).
If the same book of an author has already been cited within a paragraph use: (op.cit. …).
When quoting direct always use a quotation mark. In this case give the exact page number, e.g. (Gosy, 1998, p. 256). In case of a quote on several pages, e.g. (Gosy, 1998, pp. 256-257).
If the citation comes from a publication of several authors follow the example: Coveney at al., 2003.
