If the surname of the author(s) is used in the sentence, it is sufficient to write the date of publication in parentheses after the name. For example, according to Kara and Kaplan (2000) ...; According to Kaplan (2007) ...; Kara and Kaplan (2004) ...; Zengin, Kaplan, and Yıldırım (2004).

If more than one study is referred to at the end of the sentence, these sources should be listed in parentheses according to the date of publication and a semicolon (;) should be placed between them. For example: ... (Öztürk, 2009; Kara, 2008: 25; Özer et al., 2005; Zengin, Kaplan & Yıldırım, 2003: 61).
