Reference list preparation guidelines

These guidelines are prepared in accordance with COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) guidelines, ORI (the Office of Research Integrity), CSE (Council of Science Editors) and EASE (European Association of Science Editors) guidelines. The recommended style for references is based on the National Information Standards Organization NISO Z39.29-2005 (R2010) Bibliographic References.

The editorial team asks authors to use  Chicago Manual of Style (16 ed., “Author-Date” System) for reference list formatting. Exactly guidelines for reference list preparation you can find on URL: http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-1.html . Also, you can use The Chicago Style in your bibliography manager (EndNote / Mendeley / Zotero / Colwiz / RefMan), but please, add a DOI to all the listing references when it is available.

Sample references typically used by authors of journal articles are provided below with correct format.
