Guidelines on Reviewing for WAM

Length of Reviews

Reviews should be between 500 – 1000 words in length. For longer projects, please contact WAM directly.


Image resolution should be 300dpi 4. For each image, please cut 150 words from your word count.

Images are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

It is the author’s responsibility to obtain the necessary permissions to include copyright material such as illustrations, extended quotations, etc. If you would like to use images, please ensure: there are no copyright issues that are not covered by ‘fair use’; you supply copyright owner’s name and a brief caption.

Referencing Style

The Centre for Women, Ageing and Media follows the Harvard APA referencing style. For guidance on the Harvard APA style, please see here.
