-      one publication is described in cited literature only once, despite the amount it was cited in the literature;

-      if the book in cited literature (in every variant – basic or in References) is described fully, then the full volume of publication should be marked in the description, despite the pages cited in the text; the exception are the cases when certain chapters from book in this variant, in cited literature the description of the chapter is given with pointing the pages “from-to”;
