What is the major editor or author

Author or publisher and title

The ▪ source reference for ▪ citations includes the correct indication of the author or publisher of a work and the title.

  • When proving the Author or editor the first name or the initial of the first name is followed by the surname, separated by a comma.

  • If a work has several authors, you can either list them one after the other or just cite the first and add the addition "among others" to the others. = "and others" (sometimes also Latin designation: et al.)
    e.g.
    Linke, Angelika, Nussbaumer, Markus and Portmann: Paul, Studienbuch Linguistik, (2nd edition), Tübingen: Max Niemeyer Verlag 1994
    or:
    Linke, Angelika and others: Study book linguistics, (2nd edition), Tübingen: Max Niemeyer Verlag 1994

  • If no author is given in the source at all, this is done by the designation "o.V.,"(= without details of the author). In the bibliography, this title is either placed under" O "or simply alphabetically with the title initial.

  • When a work of another by one or more Editor is published, the name of the publisher and the first name or first name initial in brackets are followed by the addition "(Ed.)"(= Editor). The editor of a work, usually a collection of works by different authors, can of course also be the author of his own contribution to this collective work.
    e.g .:
    Andersen, U., Woycke, Wichard (Ed.): Concise dictionary of the political system of the Federal Republic of Germany, 2nd, revised edition, Opladen: Leske Verlag, 1995

  • A colon marks the end of the author's or publisher's information.

  • The Title of a work, from which it is quoted, should be fully proven.
