These are no different from otherreferences; they must have an author, andthat author must be referenced Harvard-style within the text. Unlike paperreferences, however, web pages canchange, so we need a date ofaccess aswell as the full web reference. In the list of references at the end ofyour article, theitem should read something like this:Collins, F. (2006), ‘Memory in Ruins; theWoman Filmmaker in her Father’s Cinema,http://www.latrobe.edu.au/screeningthepast/firstrelease/fr1201/fcfr13a.htmAccessed 3 December 2006.
Notes appear at the side ofappropriatepages, but the numerical sequence runsthroughout the article. Notes should be keptto a minimum. In general, ifsomethingis worth saying, it is worth saying in thetext itself. A note will divert the reader’sattention away from your argument. Ifyouthink a note is necessary, make it as brief and to the point as possible. Use Word’snote-making facility, and ensure that yournotes are endnotes, not footnotes. Place notecalls outside the punctuation, so AFTERthe comma or the full stop. The note callmust be in superscripted Arabic (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 at300 dpi resolution, saved as tifffiles,and sent electronically to the Editor atSDF@intellectbooks.com.Do NOT insertimages into a word document. Pleaseensure you insert a figure number at theappropriate position in the text, togetherwith a caption and acknowledgement tothe copyright holder or source.
We follow the Library ofCongresstransliteration, using a straight apostrophe:for the soft sing and a curly invertedcomma ‘as apostrophe and for quotations.•Quotations must be within the body of the text unless they exceed approximatelyfour lines ofyour text. In this case, theyshould be separated from the body ofthetext 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:
The Man with a Movie Camera
Chelovek s kino-apparatom
, Vertov, 1929).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:(Walker 2005: 15). PLEASE DO NOTuse ‘(ibid.)’. Note that the punctuationshould always FOLLOW the referencewithin brackets, whether a quotation iswithin the text or an indented quotation.•Your references refer the reader to abibliography at the end ofthe article,before the endnotes. The headingshould be ‘Works Cited’. List the itemsalphabetically.Here are examples ofthe most likely cases:Anon. (1931), ‘Stalin i kino’,
