All entries in the reference list must be cited in the text. Cited references in the text should use the author-date method [e.g. Ahmad (1998)]. If a work has up to three authors, always cite their names every time the work is referred to in the text. If a work has more than three authors, include only the name of the first author followed by “et al.” and the year whenever the work is published. Page numbers should be provided when specific arguments or findings of authors are paraphrased, summarised, or directly quoted. For parenthetical citations of two or more works, use alphabetical ordering. Separate each cited work by semicolons.
An alphabetically ordered reference list is to be included at the end of the manuscript. All cited references in the text must appear in the list. The accuracy and completeness of information in the references are the responsibility of the authors. The reference should follow the Chicago 15B Manual of Style (https://web.library.uq.edu.au/files/26556/chicago15B-style-guide.pdf).
