    Reference list

Every article should include a reference list containing all referenced sources. The reference list comprises two parts: a list in Russian and its rendition in English. 
First, under the title “Reference List”, there should be a standard list containing both Russian (in Cyrillic letters) and non-Russian sources (in the source language). Below you will find some examples of a correctly formatted reference list. 

Book or monograph

Article in a journal

Below the reference list should be its English counterpart titled “References”. It comprises transliterated Russian sources and non-Russian sources in their original language. All of the sources are to be combined in a consolidated alphabetized list. 

If an article only contains references to non-Russian sources, then the reference list and the references should be fused as follows: Reference List/References.

The transliteration should be done using, selecting the LC (Library of Congress) option. Transliterated Russian sources should be represented by applying the pattern used for non-Russian sources. An article or a book title should be translated and put into square brackets.
