Guidelines for book reviews | Environmental histories

Reviewing books is a valuable part of our magazine. The book review shows thought-provoking commitment and contains inspiring insight into current literature of interest to our reader.

No, we do not take book review without request. Enviromental histories follows a series of accepted norms for experts. While we sometimes employ peer reviewed authors with specific skills who have fewer papers, the main skill for peer reviewed is to publish a large volume or several large papers in important periodicals.

Our intention is to make sure that the peers have witnessed the review procedure themselves and have an understanding of the way historic and ecological surveys are conducted and how they are made. We' re always interested in extending our network of prospective experts.

Enviromental histories as a rule, a review is commissioned by scientists who have at least one or more large monographs and a doctorate or doctorate degree.

Reviews from Asia, Europe and South America may not be sent your book for 6 - 12week. Revievers have eight week from the date of receiving the book to finish their review. In case a critic needs more reviewers' attention, he should ask the editorial team for a different period of inscription.

The number of words in your book review should be in the 650-750 words category, with most book review sessions exceeding 700 words (including bibliographical information and review information). Rarely, e.g. when critics write about several boole in a review, the editor allows a higher number of words. Authors recognise the challenge of composing a meticulously designed review in so few words.

While we believe that reviewing is an important, if underrated, part of the science and studies of the environment, we appreciate the effort you and our peers make on our behalf each time. Meetings of books should follow the minutes below: Book name.
