As described by Jones et al. (2012)
If there is a direct quotation from a work, the author, year of publication, and the page number should be included. For example: According to Jones (2001) „direct quotation“ (p.121)
References should be alphabetized by the last name of the first author of each work.
Where there are two authors, both names should be referenced in the text with the usage of &, thus Black, J., & Jones, T.
Where there are more than seven authors, the first six authors should be listed and then ellipses should be used after the sixth author's name. After the ellipses, the last author's name of the work should be listed.
For multiple articles by the same author, or authors listed in the same order, list the entries in chronological order, from earliest to most recent.
