Bibliographic references in the text

LPT prefers to reduce the length of reference, but still ensuring clearness. Therefore, the reference to an author must be done as represented in the following way:

As Rawls (1971) stated in his Theory of Justice, …


For a brief introduction to Rawls’s theory, and for a presentation of a different conception of justice than Rawls’, see Van Parijs 1991


Previous papers have hypothesized that older judges may be less incentivized to pursue their careers after their mandate at the Consulta (Fiorino et al. 2007; Padovano 2009, 345-356).

It is strongly recommended not to insert footnotes unless they explain and justify a particular concept in the text.


The works must be listed in alphabetical order and within the same author of date.

All the works cited in the text must have their correspondence in the final bibliographic list and all the texts cited in the bibliography must have their own reference in the text.

Here is an example:

Breton A. and Fraschini A. (2003), “The independence of the Italian Constitutional Court”, Constitutional Political Economy, vol. 14, n. 4, pp. 319-333

Cooter R.D. (1983), “The objectives of private and public judges”, Public Choice, n. 41, pp. 107-132
