Citations in the Text:
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Avoid citation in the abstract.

Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.
Reference List:
References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. 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.
