Annex 3

 

Examples of Reference Arrangement

 

References to sources are made according to the rules of the Harvard citation system directly in the text in square brackets, which indicate the name of the author of the publication, the year of publication and (if necessary) the page number in the following format:

[Ivanov 2014: 250], where: Ivanov — surname of the author of the publication placed in the reference list, 2014 — year of publication, 250 — page number.

If the publication has several authors, they are separated by commas (but no more than three):

[Ivanov, Petrov, Sergeev 2015: 250]

If the publication has been issued without the author (e.g. edited book), instead of the author's name its title or the beginning of the title is indicated:

[Administrative law 2016: 170]

If the reference is given to the publication as a whole, and not to a specific selection of it, and the page number is not specified:

[Ivanov 2014]

[Status of the Prosecutor's office of the Russian Federation 2016]

However, if a quote or someone else's point of view is given, it should be indicated on which page the corresponding statement is located.

If a quote or statement takes up several pages, they should be separated by a dash:

[Sidorova 2011: 125-126]

If it is necessary to provide references to several works at once, they should be separated by semicolons in alphabetical order:

[Petrov, 2015; Sergeev 2017]

References to sources of publication of laws, other legal acts, court decisions (Collection of Legislation of the Russian Federation, Russian Newspaper, Bulletin of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation, etc.) are not provided! Instead, the full details of the legal act are specified directly in the text when it is first mentioned. In the text of the article this  may look (conditionally) as follows:

There is a widespread view in the literature that the Russian Prosecutor's office needs to be reformed [Ivanov 2014: 250]. However, not all authors agree with it [Petrov 2015; Alexandrov 2017]. I. V. Sidorova notes that the powers of the Prosecutor's office should be expanded [Sidorova 2011: 125-126]. At the same time the position is expressed that the powers of the Prosecutor's office listed in Federal law No. 2202-1 of 17.01.1992 «On the Prosecutor's office of the Russian Federation№» are too broad and sometimes duplicate powers of executive authorities [Status of the Prosecutor's office of the Russian Federation 2016: 183]. The limits of competence of procuratorial authorities have become the subject of litigation (see e.g., decision of Arbitration court of the Ural district of 01 March 2014, case of A60-10010/2012, etc.).

For the above selection the reference list would look like, for instance, the following:

Aleksandrov A. A. The Reform of the Prosecution: for and against: monograph. M.: Yurist, 2017. 286 p.

Ivanov I. I. Problems of Reforming the Prosecutor's Office of Russia // Russian law. 2014. no. 8. Pp. 245-252.

Petrov P. P. Prosecutor's Office and Human Rights // Journal of legal research. 2015. No. 1. S. 12-25.

Sidorova I. V. On the question of the Limits of Powers of State Authorities // State power in Russia and abroad. 2011. no. 4. Pp. 120-131.

Status of the Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation: collective monograph / Under the editorship of I. I. Ivanov. Yekaterinburg: Sredne-uralskoe knizhnoe Izd-vo, 2016. 204 p.

Information placed in square brackets should allow to identify a specific source listed in the reference list by the author's last name and year of publication, as well as the page number. Sources indicated in square brackets should be listed in the list of references.

For example, the link in the text [Ivanov 2014: 250] refers to page 250 of the following source from the list of references: Ivanov I. I. Problems of reforming the Prosecutor's office of Russia // Russian law. 2014. No. 8. p. 245-252.
