Notes-Bibliography Style


  • Reviews of books, films, exhibitions, performances etc., should usually only be cited in notes. Include them in your bibliography if they are critical to your argument or frequently cited.
  • Locate as much of the following information as possible: name of the reviewer, title of the work being reviewed and its creator/s, any other useful information (such as the film studio or location of a performance), and citation details for the journal where the review appeared.
  • If you found the review online, include an access date and URL.
