Book Reviews for the British Journal for the History of Science

 The British Journal for the History of Science is looking for book reviewers. Reviews should be of 800-1000 words and returned within 3 months of receipt of the book. We have a large number of volumes awaiting review, topics cover the history of science, technology, medicine, and environment, as well as intellectual history. We also have some primary source collections, for example, editions of letters and sources in translation. These cover all historical papers and geographic specialisms.

Book reviewing is great practice for early career scholars and we particularly welcome enquiries from Masters and PhD students. Reviews are published in each issue of the journal, and a quick publication turn around is guaranteed.

Please consult our current book list which is available here. 

Please note this is a live document and is regularly updated with new books received. Books are crossed out as they find reviewers. More books will be added over the next couple of days.

If there is a volume that you are interested in reviewing that is not on this list please email the reviews office.
