The Philippine Reports (compilation of the Supreme Court decision) from 1901 to 1961 are out of print. The printing of updates by the government printing press was so slow, and to solve this problem, in 1983 the Chief Justice asked the President to transfer the printing and publication of this primary source to the Supreme Court. On the other hand, Executive Decree No. 200 s. 1986 was issued by President Corazon C. Aquino on June 18, 1987.

For example (Brown v. Board of Education, 1954). Sections 2 to 5 list updated bibliographies of major legal sources in the Philippines. The list is organized by topic with additional subcategories for each topic.

You don`t need to create a citation for entire federal or state constitutions. It is enough to refer to them by their name in the text.
