Please note:
JLP publishes short Book notes (no more than 500 words, including references) and traditional Book reviews (1000 to 1200 words, including references).

Book notes/reviews should follow the below mentioned guidelines:

  *   Book notes/reviews should provide a comprehensive overview of the text in question and point out both strengths and weaknesses of the book. This should be presented in a professional and constructive manner!
  *   Book notes/reviews should make the aims and goals of the reviewed book clear.
  *   Book notes/reviews should consider the book’s place within its field. This should also include assessing the book against its competitors.
  *   Book notes/reviews should address potential ways in which readers might use and benefit from the book, and how the reviewer’s own views might have changed because of reading the book.
  *   Book notes/reviews must follow JLP’s reference style requirements.

In turn, book notes/reviews should avoid the following:

  *   Poor writing style and/or an overly negative, unconstructive approach to the book in question as well as unsubstantiated claims.
  *   Approaching the respective book simply through the lens of the reviewer’s preferred theories and/or writing about a book the respective author should have written (from the reviewer’s point of view) without engaging with the aims and claims raised by the reviewed book.
  *   A solely descriptive approach to the reviewed book, e.g. merely a chapter-by-chapter summary, lacking a critical perspective and failing to situate the reviewed book within the field.

Both will normally be due four months after receipt of the book and should ideally be published within a year from acceptance.

If you are interested in contributing a review/book note, please email bf79[at]le.ac.uk<http://le.ac.uk/> stating the following:

-          State whether you have written a book review for JLP in the last 2 years.
-          Briefly explain why you are a suitable reviewer. 200 words max. No CVs.
-          State whether you have any personal or professional relationship with the book's author or publisher (conflict of interest)? Please explain if yes.
