Essay checklist

Make sure your essay contains the following:

  1. reference to at least ONE Russian-language source;
  2. reference to musical materials (your essay need not make use of music analysis, although, if you like this approach, you should feel free to use it but remember that this is not an analysis project); include musical examples where relevant (‘Example 1’, ‘Example 2’ and so on, appropriately titled, and properly integrated into the text of your essay [not tacked on at the end]);
  3. reference to some of the ideas we have encountered in the key texts set for this module – use the citation convention outlined in the ICMUS Guide to Citation (available on Blackboard);
  4. reference to other appropriate primary and scholarly secondary sources throughout your essay, using the citation convention outlined in the ICMUS Guide to Citation (available on Blackboard);
  5. a full bibliography, in line with the ICMUS Guide to Citation (available on Blackboard); list primary sources separately;
  6. where appropriate, a discography and/or filmography
  7. individual foreign terms or words should be italicized: Gleichschaltung or shtetl, for example; quotations from Russian sources, however, should not be italicised unless they are single words of conceptual phrases:: ‘davayte poidëm domoy’ but vtoraya revolyutsia
  8. appropriate visual materials, labelled ‘Figure 1’, ‘Figure 2’ and so on, appropriately titled, and properly integrated into the text of your essay (and not tacked on at the end);
  9. a title page giving the essay title, your name and student number, degree and stage and module code and nothing else (no pictures on title page please);
  10. all pages should be numbered on the top right.
