Regulation for Reference List Preparation

Revised on September 7, 2018
Effective from February 28, 2019

Basic Principles

  • References should be written in English.
  • All figures, tables, and literature cited in the text should be listed in the references in alphabetical order.
  • All documents listed in the reference should be cited in the text.
  • The reference list should be formatted with hanging indentation (3 spaces in 한글; 3 characters in MS Word) with the second and subsequent lines indented by 3 characters from the left hand margin.
  • Do not use footnotes or endnotes to cite references.
  • References should be listed in alphabetical order of author's last name. Multiple documents of the same author are listed from the oldest to the newest.
  • Capitalization: For titles of books, edited books, chapters, articles, and web pages, capitalize the first letter of the title. In the case of subtitles, only the first letter of the first word of the subtitle is capitalized. For journal titles, the first letters of words are capitalized.
  • Italic Use: The book titles and journal titles should be italicized.
  • Unless otherwise specified in this regulation, submissions should comply with the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA).

How to cite references in the text

1. When the author's name is cited in the text:

  • 1) One or Two author(s): Include the author's last name(s). If two or more authors are mentioned in a sentence, they should be linked with 'and' ('&' in the reference list or when cited in parentheses).

    Walker and Johnson (2000) compared the differences …
    … (Smith & Gunless, 1988), …
    According to Kim and Park (2002) …
    … (Im & So, 1987), …

  • 2) Three or more authors: Write only the first author's last name and write 'et al.' after the name. In the reference list, authors should be listed in the same order as on the title page of the reference.

    … (Kernis et al., 1993).
    According to Kernis et al. (1993) …

  • 3) Different authors sharing the same last (family) name: When citing different authors with the same last name, include their first and middle initials, so that readers can differentiate them. If the initials are also the same, include their full first names to differentiate them.

    According to M. Kim (2012)…, and Y. Kim (2012) asserted …
    (E. Johnson, 2001; L. Johnson, 2001)
    (Paul Janet, 1876; Pierre Janet, 1906)

  • 4) Two or more works by the same author in the same year: Use lower-case letters (a, b, c) with the year to order the entries in the reference list. Use lower-case letters with the year in the in-text citation.

    Kim (2014a), Kim (2014b)
    (Kim, 2008a, 2008b)

  • 5) Two or more works by the same lead/first author but different second author: If two or more references with more than three surnames with the same year shorten to the same form, cite the surnames of the first authors and those of as many of the subsequent authors as necessary to distinguish the references, followed by a comma and 'et al.'

    Lee, J. Y., Kim, S., Park, J. H., & Seo, S. S. (2017) …
    → Lee, Kim, Park et al. (2017)
    Lee, J. Y., Kim, D. H., Shin, S., & Lee, H. S. (2017) …
    → Lee, Kim, Shin et al. (2017)

  • 2. Two or more citations by different authors within the same parentheses: Order them alphabetically separated by a semi-colon (;).

    As evidenced in the previous literature (Edeline & Weinberger, 1991, 1993; Kamil, 1988; Kim, 1998; Park & Kim, 2000; Pepperberg et al., 1990) …

    3. When the author is an institution: List the name of the institution. If the name of the institution is abbreviated, record the full name of the institution in the first quotation, put the abbreviation in brackets ([ ]), and use the abbreviation starting from the second quotation.

  • According to the report by Korea Research Foundation (2000). …
  • … (Korea Research Foundation, 1999).
  • First time citation: (National Institute of Mental Health [NIMH], 1999) surveyed …
  • Second time citation: … showed significant differences (NIMH, 1999).
  • 4. Materials without an author specified: Record the title of the book or article instead of the author's name.

  • 1) When quoting from an entire book (dictionaries, brochures, reports, etc.) that has no identified author, list the book title in italics.

    Oxford essential world atlas (2001) …
    … the book College bound seniors (1979)
    Dictionary of fashion (1995) defines retro style as …

  • 2) When quoting specific material from a newspaper, magazine article, or the Internet: Put a shortened title, consisting of the main words in the title, in quotation marks (" ").

    … on free care ("Study Finds", 1982).
    … a new style ("Y Generation", 1998) …

  • 3) When quoting a specific title word from a dictionary: Put the heading in quotation marks (" ").

    ("Culture shock", 2004, para. 3)

  • 5. Citing secondary sources: The original author's name should be listed first and the re-cited documents should be listed in parentheses followed by "as cited in".

  • Seidenberg and McClelland's study (as cited in Coltheart et al., 1993) …
  • As for Im and So (as cited in Han & Kim, 2006) …
  • → List secondary source in the reference.
  • Coltheart, M., Curtis, B., Atkins, P., & Haller, M. (1993). Models of reading aloud: Dual-route and parallel-distributed-processing approaches. Psychological Review, 100, 589−608.

  • 6. For direct quotations: If the direct quotation is in the text, along with author and year, indicate the page number: author, year, p. page_number (or, when citing documents with no page number, the number of the paragraph, expressed in the form of para. X)

  • 1) Put short quotes (less than two lines) in quotation marks (" ") and specify the page number in parentheses.

    Regarding the study of clothing, Lee (2004) asserted that "a true sense of clothing study involves research questions based on everyday curiosities on clothing and the scientific pursuit of answers to such research problems" (p. 19).
    The study of clothing is defined as "the research on questions related to clothing, in which the pursuit of answers to the questions is scientifically carried out" (Lee, 2004, para. 2)

  • 2) Long quotations should be clearly delineated, First, the text size should be reduced by 1-point font size. Second, the quotation should be separated from the main text with a blank line above and below. Third, the entire quotation should be indented. Finally, the quotation should be cited at the end after the final period. On research methods, Lee (2004) explained:

    There are two ways to identify the determinants of the phenomenon: theoretical research methods that infer reasons from the theory, and phenomenological research methods that reason the causal factors by analyzing phenomena. The former is called the deductive method, and the latter is called the inductive method (p. 25).

  • 7. Citing figures: Sources of figures and visual materials cited must be documented. The source should be shown under the heading of the figure (Fig.) in the form of "Adapted [or Reprinted] from AuthorName (year). p. Page. [or URL.] Copyright information." If you have modified the original picture, start with "Adapted from~"; if you use the original, note "Reprinted from~" In the reference list. Cite the source in conformity with the bibliographic guidelines cited above.
