How to... Submit a book review
GJSS welcomes reviews on books that are within or related to the research focus of the journal. If you know of a recent book that might be interesting to our readers or if you are interested in reviewing one of the books listed below, we invite you to write a review. Suggestions for reviews may be sent to the book review editors: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not have the book, we will request a review copy from the publisher.
Please note: these are general guidelines only. If you are thinking about submitting a review to a special thematic issue, please also consult and bear in mind the particular requirements of the CFP.
Book reviews should be between 1000-1500 words. A GJSS book review should not only describe the book and place it within its academic context, but should critically engage with the points raised. Additional details which must be included are: the full title of the book under review; some biographical information about the author(s) of the book; the publisher; the year of publication; and the ISBN. Please use a submission form to submit a book review. All submitted reviews are evaluated by the GJSS book review editors, who may consult academic specialists.
