Resources for reviewers

Before publication, all our books are peer reviewed by suitably qualified experts. Peer review helps us select only manuscripts of a high academic standard and helps authors receive expert feedback so that they may revise and improve their manuscript ahead of publication. See below information for peer reviewers.

Following publication, our books may be reviewed in academic journals, blogs, newspapers and of course several online review platforms. Published reviews are especially helpful to readers. They can provide extended descriptions of a book’s contents, its relevance to various audiences and an appreciation of its strengths and limitations. See below information for other reviewers.
