REFERENCES

Citations in text

Gnosi Journal uses APA 6th edCitation Style.

For intext citation, use surname of author and year of publication: Bassey (2002) or (Bassey 2002). Insert initials only if there are two different authors with the same surname and same year of publication. Different references cited together should be in date order, for example: (Akpan 1983; Ogar & Ogar 2008; Akpanika 2015). The abbreviation “et al.” should be used in the text when there are more than two co-authors of a cited paper. When citing a specific part of a source, also include a page number or range, for example (Usen, 2020, p. 67) or (Usen, 2017, pp. 39–41).

If a paper has been accepted for publication and have not been published as of the time of writing the manuscript “in press” should be used instead of a date.

If a paper has been submitted but not definitely accepted the term “(submitted)” should be used. If the paper is still being prepared the term “(in preparation)” should be used.

Please double-check: every citation in the text must match up to an entry in the reference list and vice-versa.
