If several works by the same author are referenced in the article, in every new reference, the titles are to be abbreviated to the part which is not repeated in other titles of works by the same author referenced in the article, and are to be followed by a three-pointer, for instance:

1 KOCKA, J. Geschichte und Zukunft…, S. 15.
2 KOCKA, J. Geschichte und Aufklärung…, S. 77.

When the same publication is referenced consecutively, it is to be referred to as ‘Ibid.’ in the second and further footnotes, for instance:
