Abstract

Abstract:

Whereas book reviews in mainstream media outlets reach huge audiences, and their effects are obvious, the effects of reviews in scholarly outlets—and therefore the reason publishers do the work to land them—are harder to quantify. Yet scholarly book reviews play an important role in the long-term perception of a scholarly work and in the larger ecology of scholarship. This essay explains a bit about how scholarly book reviews work and why publishers believe they are valuable.
