While the reviews should be readable and interesting for a wide range of media subscribers and readers, they should be written with more analytical depth and rigour than is usually the case with news media reviews. Direct block quotes or important points should include a page reference and reference to other titles or related work by the author or other commentators should be added as footnote.
