Book Review Submission Guidelines

The Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement invites Book Reviews of books related to university-community engagement that go beyond mere description of the contents to analyze and glean implications for theory and practice.

Book Reviews should

  • Come from a book that focuses on important historical and philosophical perspectives and current and emerging issues in engaged research and scholarship.
  • Be consistent with the mission of the JHEOE and the broad themes framing the scope of the Journal’s scholarship interests.
  • Present, analyze, and draw out the implications of provocative issues and make a contribution to the literature.
  • Be well-written and focus on the analysis and drawing out of implications for research, engaged scholarship, and society.
  • Go beyond the simple description of the book’s contents and show evidence of sound scholarship.

*Please note that book reviews for JHEOE are typically solicited by the book review section editor, Burt Bargerstock. If you are interested in submitting a book review to JHEOE please do so by emailing your manuscript directly to him at bb@msu.edu. Book Reviews cannot be submitted through OJS.
