In-text citation:
It consists mainly of the authors' last name and the year of publication (and page numbers if it is directly quoted) in round brackets and placed within the text. If there is no discernable author, the title and date are used.

Reference list:
It should be ordered alphabetically by the last name of the first author of each work. References with no author are ordered alphabetically by the first significant word of the title. Use only the initials of the authors' given names with full stops and spaces between the initials. The place of publication is no longer required.
