Formatting references in the text according to APA style:

The sources should be cited in the text, not in the footnotes. The reference should be in brackets, containing the author ’s surname and year of publication e.g.: (Mumford, 1962) or Mumford (1962). The page number should be included for quotations or references to books e.g.: (Mumford, 1962, p. 99).
If the reference was written by two authors, both should be mentioned e.g.: (Berger& Luckmann, 1992).
If the work has three, four or five authors, all the authors’ surnames should be listed in parentheses after the first citation. In repeated citations the form "et al." is used. (Andlar, Aničić, Pereković, Rechner Dika, & Hrdalo, 2011); (Andlar et al., 2011).
If the work was written by six or more authors, the form "et al." is used from the first citation on, e.g.: (Prelog et al., 1979) or Prelog et al. (1979).
All references in the text should be given as they were given the first time, i.e., forms such as "Ibid.", "Op. cit." and the like, are not used. Authors should use footnotes exclusively for commenting on or expanding on what is referred to in the text.

The reference list should be written in APA style as in the following examples:
