Advice for Book Reviewers

Journal of Animal Ethics

1. Title. Please give a provisional title for the review at the top of the first page. The editors reserve the right to revise as necessary.

2. Bibliographical information. Please ensure that the full bibliographical information is given at the beginning of the review, for example:

Andrew Linzey, Why Animal Suffering Matters: Philosophy, Theology, and Practical Ethics (New York and Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2009), pp. 206 + xii. Hardback, $29.95. ISBN: 978-0-19-537977-8.

3. Treatment. We welcome reviews that use a book to discuss wider ideas, including the reviewer’s own, but please ensure that there is at least an accurate summary of the argument and aim of the book at the beginning of the review. We are always looking for reviews that pinpoint the relevance or challenge of the work for animal ethics.

4. Length. Reviews are normally 500-1,000 words, but we are happy for reviews to become review articles (up to 3,500 words), if the work merits it.

5. Delivery date. Generally, unless advised otherwise, we would be grateful if reviewers would supply the review within 6 months from date of commissioning, but we would rather have a late review than a rushed one.

6. Biography. Please supply a short biography at the end of the review. See the guidelines below.

7. Style guide. Please follow the style guide and general guidelines. It is essential that reviewers follow the style otherwise there may be delays (because of the need to refer back) before copyediting.

8. Copyediting. All reviews are professionally copyedited. Authors will be given an opportunity to review the copyediting as well as the page proofs.

9. Historical reviews. The JAE welcomes reviews of historically important works. Contact Professor Andrew Linzey to suggest titles.

10. Delivery. Reviews should be sent as an email attachment (Microsoft Word Windows old version) to Andew Linzey andrewlinzey@aol.com. Please do not send a paper version.
