Review Editor for SHLL

I also serve as the Review Editor for the journal Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics. Reviews of academic books (e.g., monographs, edited volumes, handbooks, etc.) are generally solicited individually. If you would like for your book or volume to be considered for a review in SHLL, please have your commissioning editor arrange for a copy to be delivered to us. If you are working on a review, I strongly suggest reading the many excellent samples that have been published in previous volumes. There are also a number of useful guides and how-to’s available that can help you as you put together your submission–such as this article by Casey Brienza from Inside Higher Ed and this insightful resource prepared by Tala Khanmalek.
