Diklabio prefers articles which refer mainly to journal articles, research reports, and conference proceedings, rather than rely heavily on textbooks or handbooks to demonstrate articles' novelty in the subject discussed. The use of Mendeley as a tool in referencing is preferable and encouraged. References should be carefully checked for completeness, accuracy, and consistency.

Author(s) should cite publications in the text following the APA 6th (APA Sixth Edition) citation style. At the end of the paper, a reference list in alphabetical order should be supplied as follows:
