  • translate the names of the main source (you can not do for magazines) and its parts (articles from the journal, collective collection, etc.) and insert them in square brackets [] after the corresponding transliterated names;
  • replace // with a point ;
  • replace / with a comma ;
  • Replace № with No.
  • translate the place of publication (e.g., M. to Moscow ; SPb. to Saint Petersburg);
  • replace the colon after the place of publication with a comma;
  • after transliteration publishers add Publ. (Nauka Publ.); if the organization is the publisher, its name is translated (Ιzdatel’stvo Pushkinskogo Doma to Pushkin House Publ.).
  • fix page designation: instead of 235 is 235p., Instead of Russian c. 45–47 is pp. 45–47;
  • highlight in italics the name of the main source (monograph, journal, collective work, etc.; authors' names do not given in italics).
  • at the end of the bibliographic reference in parentheses add an indication of the original language of the article: (In Russ.)
