Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors. The authors should ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the references list (and vice versa). The authors should avoid citation in the abstract. Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as in press implies that the item has been accepted for publication. References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. In text, citations should include author(s) and year of publication:
(Davoudi & Fartash, 2012); or Davoudi & Fartash (2012). Cite works with three or more authors, with the first author and "et al." : Davoudi et al. (2012); or (Davoudi et al., 2012).
More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters "a", "b", "c", etc., placed after the year of publication: Davoudi (2012a); Davoudi (2012b); Davoudi (2012c, d)
