Citation rules
The author shall cite in accordance with the APA standard, using in-text references. For instance, as noted by Petrusek (1999: 13), it is necessary to adhere to the citation manual. Also, Malinowski documented (1989, 1993) that texts by authors who did not adhere to the quotation manuals were always refused by the journal. The same was repeated by other authors (Boas, Hroch & Vrhel 2003; Kandert & Kostrhun 2004). As Wittlich stated in this context, “the editorial staff makes no exceptions” (Wittlich 2011: 14).

Bibliography
The list of literature used shall always be at the end of the text, in alphabetical order and it shall only contain literature referred to in the text. The APA citation guide shall be applied to bibliography, respecting specificities of the language of the author’s language. The APA citation guide shall apply to in-text citations and list of literature.
