Referencing styles are established systems of referencing with consistent rules. Referencing style requirements cover the two elements of a referencing system: in-text citations (such as author-date citations, or footnotes), and reference lists or bibliographies.
There is a wide range of referencing styles, each with different origins and features. Some disciplines have adopted a particular referencing style, while other disciplines may use a range of them.
As there is no single referencing standard or style that historical or archaeological writings should comply to, and having in mind that referencing style is generally considered to be a matter of personal preference, HAEMUS leaves this issue to the discretion of the authors. That said, use of the APA Style Guide is encouraged; however, authors can freely follow the Chicago, Turabian, Harvard or MLA referencing style, as long as the usage is consistent and several styles are not mixed within the submission.
Regardless of the referencing style authors chose to follow, special care should be taken that all bibliographical references using non-Latin scripts should be followed by a translation into the language of the article and set in square brackets, as for example:
