Every reference must start with the sequence "[Name <(>year<x><)>]" (without the quotes). Name and year must match the markup in the running text [see 2.4.1 Markups] to be able to automatically detect the matching markup-reference pairs. The single information fields of a reference (Author1, Author2, Title...) should be divided by commas or semicolons. The brackets around the year are optional. Four examples for the different main types of documents should serve as a template:
