Citation of used literature

From WikiLectures

Citation of sources is an essential part of any professional work. The author lists the sources in such a format that the cited document can be found. There are different citation styles that vary by document type.

Citation Styles[edit | edit source]

It is important to maintain a uniform form of citations throughout the work.

We quote:

  • at the end of the entire work
  • at the end of the chapters
  • under the line

Formal citation styles are governed by:

norms - apply to VŠKP

  • ČSN ISO 690:2011 (Bibliographic citation)
  • ČSN 010195 (Bibliographic record)

instructions for authors from the publisher

DOI[edit | edit source]

DOI = Digital Object Identifier – a commercial centralized system for identifying works accessible in digital form. These are permanent identifiers that, unlike URLs, do not refer to a network location, but to content (if the article is provided by different providers - eg Oxford, EBSCO and ProQuest - the URLs are different)

In-Text Citation[edit | edit source]

  • The authors state in their publication: " ... " [1, p. 234]
  • The authors deal in detail with the issue... [1]

  • The authors state in their publication: "..." [Lippertová-Grünerová, 2005, p. 234]

Using running notes:

  • notes are continuously numbered in the text (using a superscript or round or square brackets). Annotator can be placed below the line, at the end of the chapter or at the end of the text. Notes do not have to contain a complete bibliographic citation. An unnumbered alphabetical list of complete bibliographic citations is at the end of the text, and the content of the note must clearly identify the citation from the end list.[edit | edit source]
