Instructions to online reviewers
An online review should aim for a descriptive analysis of the book under consideration. The reviewer’s principal assignment is to describe the book’s subject and scope, bringing forward it most prominent features.
In most cases, single volume reviews only. The exception is for multi-volume editions under a single editorship.
Suggested length for online book reviews is 500 words.
All reviews published by Nineteenth-Century French Studies, where in print or online, have been subject to the same editorial review.
For style and formatting, consult the NCFS Submission and Author Guidelines.
Who can review?
Masters students writing a thesis, doctoral students, and practicing scholars whether affiliated or independent.
