  • Book and Website Reviews: send inquiries attn: Book Review Editors. No unsolicited reviews, please.


We welcome both individual and group submissions.  All submissions must be original, previously unpublished work and, if based in a particular academic discipline, must explicitly consider their relevance and applicability to other disciplines and classroom settings.
