I would the sentence "out of column width" be inside the correspondent column. Any suggestions? Ideally, this should be valid for a longer sentence (after reaching the established column width, the sentence skips to the next line).

Well, your given code snippet does not compile, because we do not know the definition of command \mr and we do not have your used bib file nor the code you use to build the bibliography ...

With a little bit guessing I used the following code

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{showframe} % <==============================================
\newcommand{\mr}{} % <==================================================

\begin{document}
\begin{table} 
\setlength\belowcaptionskip{\abovecaptionskip} 
\setlength\abovecaptionskip{0pt} 
\centering 
\tiny % <===============================================================
\caption{tabular}
\begin{tabular}{*{5}{c}p{2cm}} % <======================================
    \toprule
    Reference         & Laminate      & Veil      & $\bar{c}$  & $G$\textsubscript{IC}  vs.{}    & $G$\textsubscript{IIC} vs.{}  \\
    &        &        &    & baseline     &  baseline \\
    \midrule
    \mr{Kuwata \cite{Kuwata2011, Kuwata2011a}} & Carbon/epoxy & \mr{CoPA} & \mr{0.39} & \mr{} & \mr{Out of column width} \\

    \mr{Kuwata \cite{Kuwata2011, Kuwata2011a}} & Carbon/epoxy & \mr{CoPE} & \mr{1.77} & \mr{} & \mr{} \\

    \mr{Beylergil \cite{Beylergil2018}} & \mr{Carbon/epoxy} & \mr{PA66} & 0.96 & \mr{} & \mr{} \\
    &       &        &    2.80    &        &   \\
    \mr{Ram\'irez \cite{Ramirez2015}} & \mr{Carbon/epoxy} & \mr{PPS} & 0.68 up to 3.43 &  & \mr{} \\

resulting in

Please see that I used \tiny to get a smaller font and used p{2cm} to get a line breaking in the column if needed after 2cm ...

Package showframe is used to visualize the typing area and margins ...
