1. Source Representation in Text
Open source display in text

TCrane (2011) states that the roots of the vegetation on the soil aggravate the soil and cause landslides as it facilitates the absorption of water by the soil and allows it to be kept better.

Two-authored resource representation:

Only the surname of the first author is used in the source display, which has more than two authors. After the surname is written, et al. is used as the abbreviation of "and others". For example:
Natural disasters are defined by Şahin et al.(2001) as events that cause interruption in the socio-economic and cultural activities of the society or adversely affect these activities, cause significant loss of life and property, and are mainly caused by natural causes
Other considerations should be arranged in accordance with the APA style.
Closed source display in text
Normal example with single author:
In the period between 1951-1980, the arrangements for the measures to be taken after the disaster were emphasized. After the 1976 Friului and 1980 Irpinian earthquakes, a regulation was made for the repair of damaged buildings and the construction of new houses by the Law No. 546 enacted in 1977. However, no regulation has been made to define the disaster area (Alexander, 1985).
Two-authored resource representation:
Earthquakes are hazards of geological/geomorphological origin that occur suddenly. Short-term oscillation and vibration movements due to earth-shell movements are called earthquakes. (Şahin & Sipahioğlu, 2009)

When applied to the coasts of the Marmara Sea, three different tsunami scenarios were obtained for the Marmara Sea Other considerations should be arranged in accordance with the APA style.

Karesi Journal of Architecture pays attention to the correct and clean use of language and the correctness of academic terminology. The use of foreign equivalents of words in Turkish is expected as it is considered that deriving technical concepts and patterns that do not have equivalent terms in the target language is within the scope of academic responsibility. In compulsory situations foreign words or concepts should be written in italics. Turkish words and concepts that did not exist before or are not widely used should be written in parentheses next to their foreign counterparts, and then Turkish counterparts should continue to be used in the continuation of the text.
In cases where the spelling rules are not mentioned above, the considerations adopted in scientific writings should be taken into account.
