About Book Reviews
We consider that Book Reviews are an essential part of the "professional / scientific" publication process.
Book Reviews are often somewhat undervalued, but they are almost as important as the actual books themselves. Book Reviews inform other people as to the existence of a new book, and also of another professional's (considered) opinions about that book. They can also put a new publication "in context"; and they form a very significant part of the "web of science". The IJP is dedicated to publishing professional reviews of books about psychotherapy - published in English - as well as in several other languages.
So, we hereby invite you to join our Book Reviewing 'team'.
If you send us your preference(s) to review + your postal address, you will receive one (or more) of these newly published books that have been sent to us by publishers specifically for a review. You then just have to read it (properly) and write a review of it (usually about 600-800 words) in English; we will then publish your review (your name will be in print) and also you get to keep the book.

You may also be able to claim some CPD points, as well.
Furthermore, it is extremely courteous to let the publisher know that you have written this review and send them a copy: they might even ask you to review other books.
If you have not reviewed books before, there is information on the IJP website about "Book Reviewing", just click here.
We would also greatly appreciate it if you wanted to review any new psychotherapy books that have been published in your own language or country: so, please contact us (here).

On-line Book Reviews
We also have a large and almost unique collection of online book reviews of newly-published English-language books about psychotherapy. These reviews have been provided for the IJP by Jacqueline A. Carleton (one of the IJP International Advisory Board) and her dedicated team of USA interns.
This is an incredibly invaluable resource for anyone interested in relatively new (English-language) psychotherapy publications. We would like to thank all those people inmost heartily! These almost 150 reviews have been published in various 'collections' or 'Resource Lists'. There is an overall listing: here.
