Would you like to become an I Programmer book reviewer?
We can't pay for submissions but there are still good reasons to join our team:
- Free copies of newly published titles on topics you are interested in
- Your name appearing on a prestigious site.
Even as a guest reviewer we will print your name and if you become a regular reviewer your bio can be added here.
- Our reviews are authoritative - build your reputation as an expert
English isn't my first language can you publish a review in another language?
All reviews will need to appear in English and our editorial team can help the with final polishing. We are willing to consider publishing in another language in the case of a popular book.
I am an author can I review my own book?
Sorry - no - we make a point of impartial reviews. However if you want to promote your book how about writing a short article based on a central idea? If that's of interest email firstname.lastname@example.org with your proposal.
What do I have to do to be accepted?
Decide which category of book you'd like to review and send in one sample review of relevant book you are already familiar with - preferably one that is currently missing from our site. Aim for 500 to 750 words and include the title, the ISBN number, your own name and email address. There's no need to send the book jacket and any .doc or .txt file can be accepted. Also list the topics you would be interested in covering.
Do you have any author guidelines?
You can email email@example.com for a template and there are plenty of examples of book reviews on the site. Remember, though, that we are looking for your personal opinions so you don't need to follow the style, just the form.
What happens next?
You'll quickly get feedback. If your first review l is accepted without major revisions, you'll be asked to send in an email confirming you are willing for it to appear and that the review is your own work and not already in print. After that formality, you can expect to see it on I Programmer within a few days and we'll offer you a further title to review.
If you have other questions email firstname.lastname@example.org which is also the address to send reviews.
