A license work has to be based on large and divers bibliography. It is what can prove veridical and multilateral character of it. It is often called scientific apparatus.
Scientific apparatus, usually relates to books, newspapers articles, internet resources, annexes, etc. their enumeration can be settled either at the beginning or at the end of work. The resources need to be written correctly and consecutively.
There are three types of elements in a license work:
