These are no different from otherreferences; they must have an author, whoshould be referenced Harvard-style withinthe text. Unlike paper references, however,webpages can change, so we need a dateofaccess as well as the full URL. In the‘works cited’ at the end ofyour article, theitem should read something like this:Lukinykh, N. (2006), ‘Inspired by theOscar, hardened by the marketplace’,
13,http://www.kinokultura.com/2006/13-lukinykh.shtmlAccessed 12 September 2006.
Notes appear at the side ofappropriatepages, but the numerical sequence runsthroughout the article. Notes should bekept to a minimum. In general, if something is worth saying, it is worthsaying in the text itself. A note will divertthe reader’s attention away from yourargument. Ifyou think a note isnecessary, make it as briefand to thepoint as possible.Use Word’s note-making facility, andensure that your notes are endnotes, notfootnotes. Place note calls outside thepunctuation, so AFTER the comma or thefull stop. The note call must be insuperscripted Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3).
Articles may be accompanied by images.It is the author’s responsibility to supplyimages and ensure they are copyrightcleared. Images should be scanned at 300dpi resolution, saved as jpeg files, and sentelectronically to the Editor at SRSC@intellectbooks.com. Do NOT insert imagesinto a word document. Please ensure youinsert a figure number at the appropriateposition in the text, together with acaption and acknowledgement to thecopyright holder or source.
We follow the Library ofCongresstransliteration, using a straight apostrophe:‘for the soft sing and a curly inverted comma‘as an apostrophe and for quotations.•Quotations must be within the body of the text unless they exceed approxi-mately four lines ofyour text. In thiscase, they should be separated from thebody ofthe text and indented.•Omitted material should be signalledthus: [...]. Note that there are no spacesbetween the suspension points.•Avoid breaking up quotations with aninsertion, for example: ‘This approach to
’, says MacPherson, ‘is notsufficiently elaborated’ (MacPherson1998: 33).
•The first mention ofa film in the article(except ifit is in the title) should includeits original title, the director’s surname(not Christian name), and the year of release, thus:
Burnt by the Sun
, Mikhalkov, 1994).In all subsequent references the titleshould be translated into English, unlessthe film is known in all markets by itsoriginal title, for example
...•We use the Harvard system forbibliographical references. This meansthat all quotations must be followed bythe name ofthe author, the date ofthepublication and the pagination, thus:(Kaes 1992: 15). PLEASE DO NOT use‘(ibid.)’.•Your references refer the reader to abibliography at the end ofthe article,before the endnotes. The heading shouldbe ‘Works cited’. List the itemsalphabetically.Here are examples ofthe most likely cases:Anon. (1931), ‘Stalin i kino’,
