ARTS In-text Reference and Bibliography Regulation Rules

In the works published in ARTS, in-text references, citation, and bibliography should be presented in accordance with the following description and examples in which the APA rules are made in Turkish by the decision of the Editorial Board.


In-text Reference

• In the case of a general reference and reference to the whole source, it is sufficient to write the year of the author and the source: (Özön, 2013).

• If a specific page in the source is cited or written from a specific part of the source, the source should be written with the page as follows: (Özön, 2013, p. 79).

• If the referenced text has three to five authors, the surnames of all authors should be written when giving the first reference: (Kaya, Atılgan and Solmaz, 1995). In later references, it is sufficient to write the surname of the first author as in the following example: (Kaya vd., 1995). If the number of authors is six or more, only the first author's surname should be written in the first use and the others should be abbreviated as “vd.” (Altun vd., 2010).

• Names of all films, books, magazines, newspapers, TV programs and works of art should be written in italics. If the names of the films are not mentioned in the text when they are used first, the director should be written in brackets first, then the year: Reservoir Dogs (Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino, 1992), Akrebin Yolculuğu (Ömer Kavur, 1997). If necessary, the following information may also be included: The Big Sleep (The Big Sleep, Howard Hawks, Warner Bros, USA, 1945).

• It should be in the form of a glossary item (“Substance name”, Date) in the text: (“Mardin Melek Sineması”, 2015).

• All personal interviews made by e-mail, telephone or face to face should be shown in the text. Example: Nadine Labaki (personal interview, 6 March 2019) or (Nadine Labaki, personal interview, 6 March 2019). These talks are not included in the bibliography.

• Classical works should be written as in this example if their original histories are known: (Freud, date of original work / date of the work), (Freud, 1930/1998).

• If the author has reached the main source in which the text is cited by another author (that is to say, using the secondary source), the reference should be given as follows: (aktaran Kazancı, 2013, s. 29) or (Parsons’tan aktaran Aktay, 1995, s. 105).

• Direct quotations made in the text, which are longer than 40 words, are 2 cm left and right. inset, 1 line spacing, 10 points and without quotation marks. When quoting directly from the original source, the extracted word (s) and/or sentence (s) should be indicated by three points […] in square brackets. Direct quotations of less than 40 words in the text are double-quoted. In quotations in double quotation marks, a single quotation mark should be used if a word or sequence of words is to be highlighted using quotation marks.


Preparation of Bibliography

• The sources should be written in alphabetical order, without discriminating between books, magazines, internet resources and all other sources.

• The works of an author with the same date should be written in the bibliography and in the text as follows: (Atasay, 2001a) and (Atasay, 2001b).

• If the bibliography includes many works of the same author, all the source works should be written from the old date to the new date.

• For sources without a year, N.D. (no date) shortening should be used.

• If the original dates of classical works (such as works by authors such as Smith, Hobbes) are known, the end of the showing in the bibliography should be added as follows: (The original work is dated 1744).

• "Publisher", "publications", "books" and etc. should not be added while stating the publisher where the source used is printed. Example: Istanbul: Metis or London: Routledge.

• If there are electronic sources, DOI (digital object identifiers) numbers should be written. If there is no DOI number in electronic sources, the URL should be used: (http://www…).
