Reviews

The BAVS Newsletter is always looking for new reviewers, particularly among postgraduate, early-career and independent researchers. To express an interest in reviewing, please include your name, affiliation, current status and five research keywords in an email to the Reviews Editor, Jonathan Memel (BAVSnews@gmail.com). Reviewers will be required to join BAVS if they have not done so already. Authors, editors and publishers of recent work on any aspect of Victorian history, literature and culture are also invited to suggest future titles by emailing the same address. Reviews printed in the BAVS Newsletter are distributed to over 600 members around the world and then archived here, on our open-access website. Reviews will be returned to each book’s publisher to aid their publicity efforts.

Review Details:

A full summary of our guidelines will be sent with the title for review, but the key points are as follows:

  • Single reviews should be no longer than 750 words, while reviews of two or more titles are limited to 1000 words.
  • Reviews should offer a description of the book or resource, as well as analysis of its achievements and its place within current scholarship.
  • Parentheses rather than footnotes, endnotes, or bibliographies should be used for references.
  • The BAVS Newsletter otherwise follows MHRA guidelines for spelling, grammar, and bibliographical references.
  • The review heading should appear as follows: Book Title, by Author (Place of Publication: Publisher, Year), XXpp., £XX
    (paper/hardback) ISBN XXX-X-XXXX-XXXX-X
