Q&A: Can you help me understand one of the requirements of EI indexing?

Dear Sir, we would like to apply for EI indexation. However, there is one requirement which we cannot understand: "The title should have references in Roman script." Could you please clarify the meaning for us? We appreciate your kind help.

Roman script or Latin script refers to the alphabets that are used to write English. Many other languages, such as French, German, Portuguese, etc. also use the same alphabets. Thus, what this requirement means is that all the references you have used in your article should be in the Roman script, that is, even if you have cited a study in Chinese or Japanese, you should write the reference in Roman script and not in Chinese or Japanese script.
