Japanese Language and Literature: Book Reviews

Japanese Language and Literature does not accept unsolicited reviews of publications.

Sending Books for Review

Authors and publishers of books and other publications produced in one of JLL’s topic areas may send the books to the appropriate editor (see the list of editors) or to the Association for review in the journal:

American Association of Teachers of Japanese
1424 Broadway, Campus Box 366 (ALC Department)
University of Colorado
Boulder, CO 80309-0366

Not all publications may be reviewed due to space and other limitations. Reviews and review articles will be sent to the publisher when they are published.

The length of a review is usually between 1,500 to 2,500 words. Your editor will make the length and deadline clear to you when you have accepted the assignment to write a review. Here are the guidelines.
