Abstract: The standards discussed in this article affect the bibliographic description of the sources used by us when writing different texts with scientific orientation. This article points out to the fact that along with spelling, punctuation, and technical parameters for shaping a scientific text, it is extremely important that the standards for bibliographic citation are kept up. Most authors do not consider it, but these standards – understanding and application – are also a part of a higher level of linguistics which one researcher/ professor claims to have a good grasp of. Moreover, they are also a part of the mandatory standards of academic communication.
