General Guidelines

It would be helpful if all reviewers:

  1. Outline the subject matter and the main argument of the publication.
  2. Critically evaluate it, highlighting strong and weak points.
  3. Indicate its relevance to the Journal’s readership.

Interested book reviewers should contact Linda O’Keeffe at l.okeeffe@lancaster.ac.uk.  Once a review is confirmed, Interference Journal will provide the reviewer with a copy of the book via post.

Reviews should not exceed the word length proposed by the Book Review Editor and, to enable quick publication, should be returned by the deadline. Please note that the publication of reviews submitted to the Interference Journal is at the Editor’s discretion. Reviewers should note that the solicitation of a book review or the offer to consider an unsolicited review does not guarantee publication. Only one review from the same reviewer can be published per edition. The Editor’s decision will be final.
