References are arranged in a list in the alphabetical order of the author’s surnames.



Names of originators should normally be given in the form in which they appear in the preferred source, transliterated if necessary. Forenames or other secondary elements should be given after the surname, if at the beginning of the reference. For works with four or more authors, all names should be given if possible. If any names are omitted, the name of the first author shall be given followed by “et al.”.
