References in the text
ECONOMICA uses the standard Harvard style for references. References
in the text should be by author's surname and year of publication,
as in the following examples:
The following points should be noted:
- "Brown (2000) in a paper on...."
- "Brown (2000, p.12) has shown that....."
- "This method has been criticised (Jones, 1999a,b; Brown and Smith, 2000)".
- "A proof is given by Jones et al. (1998)".
Where this system of citation is awkward, the Editors are prepared
to consider a reasonable alternative.
- When more than two collaborating authors are quoted the first
surname only should be given followed by et al., e.g. Jones et al. (1998),
not Jones, Smith and White (1998). In the list of references, however, all
names should be given in full.
- The word "and" is used in preference to "&".
- When a book is quoted, reference to a particular page,
section or chapter is often necessary.
- Ibid., op. cit., loc. cit. must not be used.
