BOOK REVIEWS:

A full book review may concern only one book or monograph or several works. Its length is about 750-1000 words (use 11-point Times, and defer to the APA Manual of Style for questions of formatting). It should give readers an engaging, informative, and critical discussion of the work.

The most important point in developing a book review is to address the Journal’s readership: international and interdisciplinary. The review should consider:

  • The intended audience for the book and who would find it useful;
  • The background of the author;
  • The main ideas and major objectives of the book and how effectively these are accomplished;
  • The soundness of methods and information sources used;
  • A comparison with other works on this subject;
  • Constructive comments about the strength and weaknesses of the book;
  • For edited books: dominant themes with reference to specific chapters as appropriate; and implications of the book for research, policy, practice, or theory.

The header of your review should include:

  • Author(s) or editor(s) first and last name(s) (please indicate if it is an edited book)
  • Title of book
  • Year of publication
  • Place of publication
  • Publisher
  • Number of pages
  • Price (please indicate paperback or hard cover) if available
  • ISBN

At the end of your review, please include:

  • Your first and last name
  • Email
  • Institution affiliation
  • A brief biographical
