RULES AND EXAMPLES OF REFERENCING ACCORDING
TO APA-STYLE REQUIREMENTS

General rules:

Bibliographic descriptions of sources and literature in footnotes and transliterated list of sources (references) should be arranged in accordance with the agreements of the American Psychological Association (APA). Below are examples of how to arrange the most common bibliographic sources. For more information see: http://www.apastyle.org

When arranging bibliographic descriptions of sources and literature it is necessary to consider regular and cursive (Italic) text fonts, as well as the sequence of elements in a reference.

Footnotes should be provided in the original language of a source to which you refer, that is, they are not translated or transliterated. Quotes within the article should be provided in the language of the article.

References at the end of the article should be Latinized. When making bibliographic references to Cyrillic (including Ukrainian and Russian) articles, published in journals and almanacs, we strongly recommend the following structure of references:

Name of author/authors (transliterated);

original title of the article transliterated by Latin symbols and its English translation in square brackets [ ];

original title of the source transliterated by Latin symbols and its English translation in square brackets [ ];

publisher’s imprint information in English.

In References, when indicating a city of publication both in English and Cyrillic sources, the name of the city should be given in English, while the name of the publishing house should be transliterated.

For automatic transliteration of Cyrillic sources, you can use the following resources http://www.translit.ru – for sources in Russian; and http://www.slovnyk.ua/services/translit.php — for sources in Ukrainian.

When arranging references on website materials, a reference should include author’s name, title of the page, name of the site (typed in Italic font), site address <URL>, marked by <> symbols, and, if possible, the date when this page was last browsed (in round brackets). The month is provided in the language of the article.

For your convenience, below you can see examples of arranging bibliographic descriptions of sources and literature organized by source type; each one is given in two formats sequentially: the first one is the footnote example; the second is the example of arranging the same source in References.
