The list of works cited appears at the end of the article, under the heading ‘Literature’. The list is alphabetized. It must contain only works cited directly in the paper. Literature must be cited using not numeric but parenthetical citations – by listing the author’s last name and the work’s publication date in parentheses and separating these from the page number with a colon (Petrov 2014: 12). When citing a collection of articles, list, in lieu of the author’s last name, either the last name of the collection’s executive editor (or compiler) or one or two words from its title. Likewise, when citing a work whose author or compiler is unknown (e.g., a newspaper item), list one or two words from the beginning of the work’s title (Letters and Telegrams 2009). Abbreviate a name that conveniently lends itself to abbreviation as an acronym. For instance, substituting ACAC for ‘Acts of the Caucasian Archeographic Commission’ will result in ACAC 1881: 55–56. When citing articles or books by two authors, list both authors (Shalimov, Petrov 2012: 61). When citing articles or books by three or more authors, list the first author’s last name followed by ‘et al.’ (Ivanov et al. 2009 or Smith et al. 2001). To differentiate between two or more works by the same author in the same year, add the Latin letters a, b, c, etc., to the publication year (Petrov 2006a), (Petrov 2006b).

Citing dissertation abstracts and dissertations is not recommended.

Articles: Shalimov, Petrov 2012 – Shalimov V.N., Petrov V.M, (if there are more than three authors, use ‘et el.’ after the first three last names) P.A. Stolypin in Russian historiography. Golos Minuvshego. 2012. No. 1 (16). pp. 63–76.

Archival sources (with the file title and the year): NAG – National Archive of Georgia (NAG). F. 2. Op. 1. D. 7661. L. 61. 

Transliteration.  Automating the transliteration process involves the use of a resource available at (from the ‘Варианты’ (‘variants’) drop-down menu select ‘BSI’). Once done with automatic transliteration, manually check the resulting text for errors and make any necessary corrections. Transliterated citations must only contain elements that are significant to analytical processing (the authors’ full names, the title of the primary source, and the colophon). In the list of works cited, the titles of works written in languages that do not use Latinized alphabets must be translated into English and enclosed in square brackets; the titles of sources must be transliterated and the source language must be listed in square brackets in the end. When citing a book, the name of the publishing house (if that is the name of an institution) must be translated into English; in all other cases, it must be transliterated and the place of publication must be translated.
