In the contributions, the references used in the text are quoted using Harward style, i.e. the author-date-system. Quotations are quoted in brackets in the form (Author's surname, the year of publication of the cited document). If there is already the surname in the text, only year will be given in the brackets. If multiple documents have the same authors and year of publication, they are distinguished by lowercase letters per year inside brackets, e.g. (Kincel, 2000a). The same is done with a list of bibliographic links, KINCEĽ, J. 2000a.

Examples of citations in the text:

...Kaiser et. al (1971)...

...Koenigs (1974a, b)...

...výsledky potvrdil aj Mangos (1973), ktorý zistil....

The list of bibliographic references is arranged in alphabetical order by the author / title of the document, followed by the year of publication. The references consist of: Primary responsibility, Year of publication, Title, Issue, Marking of volumes of serial publications, Publication data, Scope. In the List of References, the authors are required to also indicate the DOI number to individual sources (if the source has DOI number).

How to cite more authors:

  • The names are in inverted form, the first name in the initials
  • Authors are separated by commas, the last author is separated by the letter "&" or "and"
  • it is recommended to indicate the names of all authors; in the case of four or more authors, only the first three can be mentioned and the others can be omited using the abbreviation et al.
