While the APA Citation System is generally applied in the journal, the Footnote system is accepted in some disciplines. However, the author is expected to remain loyal throughout the study of the citation system he chooses to be consistent.


In the APA Citation System, the reference to the source is given in parentheses in the relevant place, in the form of the author's last name, the date of printing and the page number of the work: (Bilgegil 1989: 34). For multiple-volume works, the Roman numeral is given the volume number before the page number: (Pakalın 1993: II / 706). If the source is two authors, the surnames of both authors are specified (Çavuşoğlu and Tanyeri 1984: 45). If the source is more than two authors, the surname of the first author is written, then the abbreviation “et al.” is added: (Akyüz et al. 1958: 50). If the reference is made to multiple sources, they should be shown in the same parenthesis and a semicolon must be inserted between them. In the case of application to more than one work of the same author, the above mentioned normal system is applied if these studies belong to different years. There will be no confusion since the year written after the surname in the parentheses is different. However, if an author has more than one work published in the same year, in order to differentiate them, small letters such as a, b, c ... can be placed at the end of the year. (Çelebioğlu, 1975a: 33). These added small letters should also be shown in the Resources list. Works without headlines are cited by headings Significant abbreviations can be made in the title. If the footnote is to be used in this reference system, the number of the word or sentence should be given at the end of the page and used only for explanations.
