Publishing house information
MBR issues the following month-to-month book review journals specifically developed for libraries, retailers and the general public: Our critiques are published on the web with a range of websites, data bases and on-line discussions groups such as alt.books.reviews. You can also get our book review from your local bookstore.
Then Gale Centgage Learning will make our book review available nationally in their printing, tapes and floppy disk collections, the Book Review Index (an educational CD set developed for use by U.S. and Canadian municipal, academic and business libraries ), and on-line data bases such as Lexus-Nexus and Goliath.
Our website ressources, which include our book review journals and advice for authors/publishers, are made available free of cost to the author, publisher and the general population. Advice for Writers/Publishers article creators own the copyrights and full property of their own fonts. The Bookwatch and Reviewer's Bookwatch book reviewing sessions are conducted by voluntary book reviewer; each contributor reserves the copyrights and full property rights to all of his/her review sessions.
The other book review journals are published in-house by MBR and its staff. It is fully permitted to publish internal book review only in websites, news groups, e-mail listings, web discussions groups and organisational newsletter or to disseminate them to interested persons. We offer free printed book/CD/DVD review.
In order to prevent conflicts of interest, we do not require any compensation from writers or publishing houses. As a re-publishing institute, we usually ask for two of these. A $50 Reader Fee is charged for the review of e-books, pre-publication scripts, galley, uncorrected proof, ARC and PFDs.
To use this possibility, please e-mail us with the reference "Reader Fee Review" and we will e-mail you the name and e-mail-adress of the associated auditor. You will be issued the exam by the examiner, who will also tell you what information is required together with a copy of the examiner.
From January 2014, we introduced a new guideline especially for writers and publishing houses whose book survived the first edition but did not make the definitive cuts due to "too many titles, too few reviewers". Such writers or editors may send the MBR a review from any other critic or review source, provided they have the consent of the critic.
We' ll do the review in our review release Reviewer's Bookwatch under the reviewer's reviewers headline. Have you always wanted to be a critic? While we cannot afford to hire a volunteer, the volunteer retains the copyrights and full property of their own ratings. It is an important source for editors, authors, librarians, bookshops and book enthusiasts of all age groups and interests.
