When referencing, the author should respect the APA rules. Some of the most useful rules are explained here.

The author must fully comply with general and, when applicable, particular conditions for the use of sources, such as properly acknowledging them, gaining permission for their use, securing confidentiality, etc.



The author must fulfill all general and potentially specific requirements regarding the use of sources, in particular to cite them correctly, to obtain permission for use when necessary, and to observe the principle of confidentiality.

The principle of confidentiality always binds us, among other things, when the source itself requires it and when we describe cases of professional treatment.

At the end of the article, we put a list of used sources, sorted in alphabetical order. It includes only the sources we refer to in the text. We need to list all the sources we refer to.



We put the quote in double quotation marks. We do not use any special (e.g. italic) font. If it is longer than three lines, it should be in a separate paragraph; in this case, we do not use quotation marks, but mark it with a blank line above and below it.

The source is usually given at the end of the quotation (in round brackets).

Authors should be aware of the difference between summarizing and quoting verbatim. In the case of a summary, it should be clear what is taken from the original (the source must be indicated) and what the author's thoughts are. In the case of literal citations, please indicate the page(s) in addition to the source. When summarizing, we recommend, even if it is not a verbatim citation, but a summary from several consecutive pages, such as a span of pages, e.g. Author/Author (year, pp. XX-YY).
