Medical Anthropology Quarterly’s Book Reviews Editor invites reviews of books and other media that are likely to appeal broadly to medical anthropologists and colleagues in neighboring disciplines. We do not accept unsolicited or volunteered reviews.
Scholars who are interested in serving as book reviewers should create or update an account at our web-based manuscript processing system. Please list 3–5 keywords related to your areas of expertise.
Publishers who would like to have books considered for review should direct inquiries to bookreviews@
Reviews of single books or films should be 750–1,250 words; reviews of multiple books or films should be 1,250–2,250 words. Please consider the following points when preparing your review:
For reviews that consider multiple items, comparison is encouraged. For edited volumes, you may comment on several chapters (perhaps the strongest and weakest), but be certain to address the overall integration and impact of the book. For second or later editions, please note changes from earlier editions.
Invited book reviews should be submitted through our web-based manuscript processing system. If you have any difficulty using the system, please contact the editorial office firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Book Reviews Editor may request revisions for clarity, content, or style. Once accepted, your review will go to the Managing Editor for copyediting and formatting. You will have an opportunity to view the final version of the review before it is published.
