I'm writing a critical review of two essays for a university class. Both of these essays have fairly long names. The essay begins like so...
This essay will compare The Propaganda of Saints in the Middle Ages, by Esther Cohen and What is Propaganda and How Does it Differ from Persuasion? By Garth Jowett and Victoria O’Donnell. These essays relate in that they both discuss aspects of propaganda.
I want to add some kind of note which says something like
The Propaganda of Saints in the Middle Ages*(to be refred to as Propaganda of Saints)*
Is there an preferred way to do this in academic essays?
Edit: I also wanted to point out that it is recommended in most essay styles MLA, APA, ect. that titles are stylized, either through italicizing, underling, or quotes. Using short forms could be negative in this regard as you will end up having something like this.
This essay will compare The Propaganda of Saints in the Middle Ages(henceforth , Propaganda of Saints)
