Main text

 

  1. The text shall be written in Times New Roman, 12 font, with spacing 1.5, and without additional spaces. Margins: standard, 2.5 cm on both sides. Pages shall be numbered.
  2. The title shall be placed at the beginning of the article, followed by the surname of the author.
  3. The text of the article may be divided into smaller units (subchapters) with boldface titles.
  4. Titles and subtitles shall not be followed by a period.
  5. Points numbered with numerals (1., 2., 3.) or letters (a., b., c.), or introduced with dashes (–) may be used in the main text.
  6. The titles of publications mentioned in the text shall be written in italics and without quotation marks, while the titles of journals shall appear in plain typeface and in quotation marks.
  7. Italics shall be used for foreign words and phrases, for example sine qua non, de facto, a priori (punctuation marks separating different titles or different foreign expressions shall not be italicized).

NOTE: italics shall not be used in any other instances.

  1. Please do not use underlining or boldface in the main text.
  2. The full name and surname shall be used when referring to a person for the first time, and thereafter the surname alone may be used.
  3. All citations shall be given in plain typeface: shorter citations in quotation marks, while citations longer than three lines without quotation marks, in a separate paragraph, separated on both sides (from the preceding and following text) with additional spacing, 12 font, and preceded by a paragraph indent.
  4. When a citation is shortened (a fragment is omitted), an ellipsis shall be used. This shall appear in square brackets […] separated with spaces from the body of the text (the same format shall be used for omitting the opening fragment, if the beginning of the citation does not coincide with that of the sentence, and the closing fragment when the citation breaks off before the end of the sentence).
  5. A citation shall invariably be followed by information about its source, concordant with APA style requirements and given in brackets (following the text itself or the closing quotation mark, in the case of a shorter citation), and before the period terminating the sentence: citation (source). or “citation” (source).
  6. For a citation within a citation, French quotation marks or guillemets («») shall be used.

 

Principles governing the elaboration of footnotes and bibliographic addresses concordant with APA style requirements

 

  1. Bibliographic footnotes shall be placed in round brackets in the main text, following the citation or reference proper, and before the period terminating the sentence or any other punctuation mark, such as a comma or a colon.
  2. Footnotes containing additional comments shall be placed at the bottom of the page and numbered successively with Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3). If a reference is placed therein to a certain publication, or a citation, then this must be marked as in the case of the main text, i.e. with information in round brackets following the text or citation.

 

Bibliographic footnotes

Bibliographic footnotes in the APA style are references to complete entries located in the bibliography.

 

  1. Monograph, journal article, article/chapter of a collective publication (a publication issued in print)

surname of the author/editor, year of publication and, if required, the page number (or a range of pages, given with a dash and no spaces)

 

Examples:

(Arend, 2017) – without giving the page

(Fiała, 1991, p. 340) – reference to one page

(Greif, 2001, p. 55–65) – reference to a range of pages

(Blatt, 2010, p. 175 and subsequent) – reference to a fragment commencing on the given page

(Zajączkowski, Sheerin, 1988) – a publication of two authors

(Juszkiewicz et al., 1993) – a publication of many authors – when an entire book is referenced, not a single text

(Skorowidz miejscowości Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej, 1924, p. 113–114) – for a text for which an author/editor has not been given

(Willenberg, 2004; Blatt, 2010) – when referencing two publications in one footnote; these shall be separated with a semicolon

NOTE: if more than one publication of a given author from a single year is quoted, it is necessary to provide a letter of the alphabet corresponding to the entry in the bibliography: (Gozdawa-Gołębiowski, 1973a)

 

  1. Archival materials

NOTE: the classic APA style does not consider archival materials, and therefore it is necessary to provide a description analogous to the description of a publication issued in print such that the referenced text may be found in the bibliography.

document title/surname of the author, year of publication/creation and, if required, the page/sheet number

 

Examples:
