Abbreviations and Reference Conventions

Authors' names are written out in full at their first appearance, thereafter generally in abbreviated form. The names of authors in the series BNJ , however, are written out in full throughout. As a general rule, only book and chapter are given in a reference unless a conveniently accessible translation indicates the division of chapters into paragraphs as well. In a reference an author's name in square brackets indicates that the work in question is traditionally, albeit falsely, attributed to that author. In a sentence in such a situation, the putative author's name stands within inverted commas. The author has indicated pseudonymity in these ways only when such pseudonymity is transparent or generally acknowledged.
