If you cite more than one source by the same author successively in the same footnote, use the abbrivation “Id. (the same person)” in the place of author’s first and last name in subsequent references.

For references with three or more authors you use the abbrivation “et al.” after first author’s name in footnote. The same applies to bibliography.
For references with three or more editors you use the abbrivation “et al.” after first editor’s name. The same applies to bibliography.
As a general rule, the main elements of the citation in footnote are separated with comma (,), and in biblioghraphy with dot (.).
If you cite two or more sources by different authors, put semicolons (;) between your references to separate them from each other.
Example: Author’s last name, title of work, page; Author’s last name, title of work.
The abbreviation “p.” is not used to indicate page
The abbreviation “vol.” is not used to indicate volume number. Use a slash (/) between volume and page number.

Roman numerals are not used to indicate volume numberMisuse: V/11 Proper use: 5/11
Part numbers in the volumes of works consisting of two parts are indicated in parentheses.

In citing articles use a slash (/) between volume and page number of the journal.

Number of editions of a work is indicated as “x. Edition”, without using the abbreviation “ed.”. This information is stated in bibliography before publication date. No need to indicate first edition of a work as “1. Edition”.
