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 therefore dedicated to publishing professional reviews of books about psychotherapy - published in English - as well as in other languages.
So, we hereby invite you to join our Book Reviewing 'team'.
For a List of Newly Published UK-US (English-language) Books Available for Review Whenever you ask us, you can receive one of these newly published books that have been sent to us specifically for review; and then you just have to read it (properly); and write a review of it (usually about 600-800 words); then we will publish the review (with your name in print); and then you get to keep the book. You can probably even claim some CPD points, as well. It is also extremely courteous to let the publisher know that you have written this review.

If you have not reviewed books before, there is information on the IJP website about "Book Reviewing", just click here.
We would also love it if you wanted to review any 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 on-line 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 interns. This is an incredibly invaluable resource for anyone interested in relatively new (English-language) psychotherapy publications. They are much too numerous to list individually, so we have published them in 'collections'. We thank them!
