Sources are listed in alphabetical order of the surnames. When several authors are listed, only the names of the first one are inversed. When the article is in Bulgarian, the names are listed in Cyrillic, followed by these in Latin letters. If the article is in English - the opposite is true. When the internet sources have authors and/or titles, they are arranged in alphabetical order. If only the address (www) is specified, it is listed at the end.


Technical layout requirements for charts, tables etc.:

  • to fit within the printable area of the page (i.e. not to go outside of the text margins); 
  • to be grouped together to prevent displacement (the best option is to use frames);
  • to allow size correction if necessary
