Book reviews in Educational Studies are important scholarly contributions to the literature of education. Reviews are one way to help evaluate the quality of scholarship, to keep other scholars informed, and to examine important issues. A review should be looked at as an opportunity to critique scholarly work. In its own right, a review can be an original and creative contribution to scholarship. Emphasis should be given to the strengths, weaknesses, and possible implications of the work being reviewed. A careful analysis of the author's scholarship as well as the depth and breadth of the book is desirable. The reviewer should thus draw from his or her own knowledge, experience, and individual style when writing a review. The desired length of a review is 2,000 words. Please provide a word count at the end of the text.
Note: The Editor reserves the right to edit reviews received for publication and to reject or return for revision reviews that do not adhere to the Submission Guidelines.
Reviewers receive one (1) copy of the issue in which the review appears. Additional printed copies of the reviews are not available.
Please put the bibliographic information and reviewer's name at the top of the first page, formatted as in the following example:
