Notes and References

The references should be cited in Roman script. If there are sources in Cyrillic script, they (authors, titles and sources) should be presented in Roman script with translation into English or by transliteration.

The list of references should include sources that can be checked easily by the referees and by the readers as well. The marginal sources without broad visibility should not be included in the list of references. Nevertheless, if such sources are necessary to be cited, they should appear in the list of notes. This list should contain some additional explanations or marginal sources including internet addresses, preferably in portable document format (pdf). The position of notes within the text should be marked by Arabic numerals as superscripts.

The style of the list of references should be in accordance with the Publication Manual of American Psychological Association (APA style), widely used for such kind of publications.


Information about the contributor or short self-presentation should not exceed 100 words. This text is an obligatory element and it is published in every issue.
