CITATION (In the text)

In the text, authors can make citations in different ways, such as:

  • Smith (1998)… quotes (p. 108).
  • … was applied (Williams & Brown, 2006).

As the Advances in Geomatics, we adopt the principle of writing the names of the authors and the publication year of the work in in-text citations. If the source does not comprise pages (for example, if it is an article taken from the internet), authors should specify the cited part in the paragraph (Author, Year, paragraph X), and the order of the paragraph should be written instead of x.
