It is important to note the difference between dash and hyphen: dash – used as a punctuation mark and in dates as well as number of pages, e.g. p. 161-163; hyphen – used in the double-barrelled surnames, e.g. Bień-Kowalski.
Numeration and/or enumeration should not be introduced manually.
If the author’s initials consist of two names, the space should not be introduced between the two letters,
e.g. J.B. Nordemann.
