Submitting a Book Review

Please note that the journal’s online submission system is the only acceptable means of submitting a book review. Book reviews submitted directly to the editorial office or to the Book Review Editor will not be considered. When submitting your book review manuscript, please add the words [BOOK REVIEW] in the title text box. 

Please note that unsolicited book reviews are submitted at the author’s own risk, with no promise of publication.

Book reviews should be 500-1000 words long, with specific parameters assigned by the Book Review Editor.
