Invitation to be a Book Reviewer for JACE
With the transfer of publisher of the Journal of Adult and Continuing Education to Manchester University Press we are seeking to further enhance the well established reputation of JACE with a new emphasis on providing well informed reviews of current publications that are relevant to the focus of the journal. The target is rigorous theoretical and practical work in the fields of lifelong learning and adult, community and continuing education. Please see the new JACE web site for more information about the journal.
Our aim is to encourage authors to share their work with JACE readers and to provide a rigorous but fair review with a word limit of 800 words per review. There are three titles awaiting review as listed below. If you are interested in taking one of these books up and can provide us with a review in one month (by July 15) we will have your review to press in the next issue of JACE. Of course, if you cannot meet this immediate deadline then we will hopefully offer a longer lead time for the next issue.
The benefits for you of becoming a reviewer is a free copy of each book you review and engagement in the current academic and practitioner debates in adult and lifelong learning. Review articles will be required to address the criteria outlined below. Once a review is accepted for publication in JACE you will receive advice and be asked to review the proof version of your text, and you will also be asked to sign a formal permission to publish consent form. When you accept an invitation to review you will be asked to submit your review in a timely manner and no later than an agreed date.
To accept the invitation to become a reviewer and also to put in a bid for one of the current titles to review please reply to email@example.com
