Reference List and Bibliography

On the basis of the Harvard System of Referencing, quoting and indicating a source of reference include author’s surname followed by the year of publication and cited page numbers in brackets (parentheses) . No reference to the author’s surname can be made in case it is clear from the context which work of the cited author is chosen. For instance, Jonas Rimkus (1997b: 86–87) supported the idea of a famous historian of Lithuanian philosophy (Gerulis 1993: 131). In case a source contains more than two authors, the surname of the first author only is indicated, for instance, (Vitkus et al. 2005: 233). In case there are a few authors having the same surname in the reference list, the first name letter of a person is required. The alphabetically arranged list of references follows conclusions. The word References is printed in 10 pt Bold-Regular type and aligned left and the list of references – in 9 pt. These are the examples of making references:
