| You must prepare a list of references giving complete citations for all papers, books,
etc., referred to in the text. You do not, however, include literature sources you may have
read, but do not specifically cite in the text. The list is compiled alphabetically by last
name of the author, or first author if more than one. For journal articles the format is:
name; year of publication; complete title of article; title of journal; volume; pages. For
books - name; year; title of book; publisher; city of publication; total number of pages in
book. Examples are given below.
