AJL Reviews - Guidelines for Publishers

AJL Reviews - Guidelines for Publishers

A PDF version of this text is available here.

1. The AJL Reviews is a digital publication published 4 times a year (February, May, September
and December) and is posted electronically to over 800 members (individuals and institutions)
of the Association of Jewish Libraries. The main goal of the AJL Reviews is to help the AJL
members in their acquisition decision process.

2. The AJL Reviews accepts works in print or digital form, including Audio-Visual materials
(CDs and DVDs). Topics covered include any aspect of Jewish life and culture of Jewish
communities around the world. We also welcome works that deal with the State of Israel and
Israeli culture. Most of the works we review are in English, Hebrew or Yiddish, but we accept
works in any language! We only accept titles published during last or current year. Reissued
titles are reviewed only if there is substantial change in the new edition.

3. Please note that due to the voluntary nature of our practice (all of our reviewers are
volunteers), we cannot guarantee that each and every work sent to us for review will indeed be
reviewed. Our volunteer reviewers pick and choose the work or works that suit their interests,
professional fields, and language skills. Our reviewers are AJL members -- librarians,
teachers, professors, clergy, and other professionals who work in Jewish communities.

4. For adult reviews, please send 1 review copy to Daniel Scheide at the following address:

5. For children & teen reviews, please send 2 review copies to Rachel Kamin at the following

6. If not already included on cover or within its container, it is advisable to send any additional
bibliographic information about your work, such as ISBN, cost, and targeted age group (for
children & teen works).

7. Review copies are not returned to the sender.
