Any work or passages written by other authors, contributors, or sources should be appropriately credited and referenced. List only pertinent references. Instead of in-text citation, always use footnotes in the following format: Second name Year of publication: page number (f.ex.: Geertz 1973: 59.) (f.ex.: Mikes 2018: 25, 50, 150, 230.)
