Review Preparation

Copyright Transfer
Complete the copyright transfer agreement as soon as the book is received. Sign and date the second page next to the heading “Contributor-owned work” and return the agreement to the book review editor by regular mail.
Download the review template corresponding to the book’s format (monograph or edited volume) and edit the volume and reviewer information.  Prepare the review body according to the template instructions and the AJPA Guide for Authors.  Please do not alter the template margins, font, etc.
Standard review length is 1000 words.  The 1000-word limit may be waived for long or complicated volumes.  Variances must be approved by the book review editor prior to submission and preferably before the review is begun.
Provide page numbers for all quotations and note whether emphases within quotations are yours or those of the author(s).
References are to be avoided.  Exceptions must be approved by the book review editor prior to submission.  Approved references should be formatted as extended in-text citations, as if for an abstract; reference lists are not permitted.
Submit reviews to the book review editor ( as an e-mail attachment.  If this is not possible, please contact the review editor for submission instructions.
AJPA relies upon reviewer punctuality to ensure the steady supply of reviews critical to the publication process.  Unless prior arrangements have been made, reviews are due two months from the book’s receipt.
The review editor will copy edit the text and make minor revisions before forwarding the review to the editor-in-chief (Dr. Chris Ruff) and Wiley-Liss.  Substantive revisions and factual queries will be discussed with the reviewer before submission.
Electronic page proofs will be sent directly to the reviewer
