Reference Style

Text: Citations in the text should follow the referencing style used by the American Psychological Association (APA). Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication. 

List: references should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters 'a', 'b', 'c', etc., placed after the year of publication. Although some examples are provided below, you are referred to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Seventh Edition.



Note that it is very important that you provide us with the DOI of the references in the reference list of your manuscript. To locate the DOI for a particular source, please go to https://www.crossref.org/, click on “Search Metadata”, insert the reference list (author, year, title, .....) and press "enter". It will give you the list of DOIs.
