The Proceedings of the Faculty of Economics in East Sarajevo uses THE CHICAGO MANUAL OF STYLE (AUTHOR – DATE SYSTEM).

Reference to individuals, articles and book in the text – Basic structure of an in-text citation. Citation in the text usually appears in parentheses and includes only the first two elements in a reference list—the author and the year of publication (hence the name of the system), with no intervening punctuation. In addition, a page number or other locator may be added, following a comma. Terms such as editor or translator, abbreviated in a reference list, are not included in a text citation.

Quotations. Any quotation, regardless of its length, needs to be followed by reference including page number. For any quotation longer than 350 characters, an author must have written approval by copy rights owner that needs to be enclosed.

Tables, charts, and pictures. Tables and graphs need to be made in Word or some oth­er Word compatible format. Tables and graphs from statistical programs should be trans­ferred into Word format. Same data may not be presented both in tables and charts. Every table, chart, or picture should be marked with number and adequate name, e.g.: Table 2: The Reliability of the Variables. The name of the table, graphic or image is placed above, TNR 11, normal, two lines between the table and the text. Pictures need to be sent in electronic form with the resolu­tion of at least 300 dpi. If illustration from printing source is used, written authorization by copy rights owner is necessary. Source should be placed below tables, charts, and pic­tures. Quotations in the given Source are used in the same way as in the text. If the tables, charts, and figures are author'(s') calculations, reviews or estimations, that should also be emphasized.

Statistics. The results of statistical tests need to be provided in the following form: F (1.9) =25.35; p<001 or similar. Lower numbers of conventional P levels should also be stated (e.g.: .05, .01, .001).

References. The Proceedings of the Faculty of Economics in East Sarajevo uses The Chicago Manual of Style for references. Reference section must be single-spaced, beginning on a new page following the text, giving full information. Use full names of authors or editors using initials only if that is the usage of the particular au­thor/editor. List all author/editors up to/ including 10 names. Authors of articles and books and material without specific authors or editors, such as government documents, bulletins, or newspapers, are to be listed alphabetically. Most references in the Reference section should be referenced (included) in the text.

Appendix. In the appendix, only those descriptions of material that would be useful for readers to understand, evaluate, or revise research should be provided.

Footnotes and abbreviations. Footnotes should be avoided. If necessary, references in the footnotes should be used in the same way as in the text. Abbreviations should also be avoided, except from exceptionally usual ones. The abbreviations stated in tables and pictures should be explained.

Reviews and publishing. All papers are anonymously reviewed by two anonymous re­viewers. On the basis of reviews, the editorial staff makes decision on paper publishing and informs the author.
