If the author's last name of the cited work is not indicated in the text, the quotation mark is put at the end of the quoted text or according to the logic of the sentence before the punctuation marks. If the author of the cited work is mentioned in the text, the designation of citation (only the year of publication) is placed after the last name.

For example:

When heated, the concentration of dimers in water increases, which leads to an increase in its acidity (Bandura, 2006).

As shown by the results of the study Cesarchuk (2012), ...

When sending a job two authors write both families (Stavskaya and Reiter (2015) or (Reuter that Stavskaya 2015)) for the work 3 or more authors write only one name (Reiter et al., 2015). When sending to several works, they are written in alphabetical order by the first author. When sending to several works by one author, the year indicates all publications, in chronological order (Reuters 2001, 2007). If the sending is done on several works by one author published in one year, a Latin letter is added to the dates, depending on the title of the work (Reuters 2001a, 2001b).
