A message from the new AIMS Book Review Editor, Jo Dagustun

ISSN 2516-5852 (Online)

AIMS Journal, 2017, Vol 29 No 3

Over the years, AIMS has provided a trusted book review service to its members and others, publishing reviews in its Journal and on the AIMS website. As the new Book Review Editor, I have committed to support this element of AIMS’ work. And as I take on this role, I would like to acknowledge the work of my predecessor, Gill Boden, who I found to be a wonderfully thoughtful and kind Book Review Editor.

AIMS is often sent newly-published books for review, whether direct from authors or from the publishers. We also receive information about books about to be published, which we follow up by requesting a review copy as appropriate. We also take a proactive role in seeking out new books that look relevant: if you think you’ve found a book that we might usefully review, please let me know. I would also like to start a series of ‘classic’ book reviews, looking back at some old favourites that might be worth bringing to the attention of a new audience. Do you have an old favourite that might fit the bill?

If you fancy getting involved in reviewing books for AIMS, I would be delighted to hear from you. I will then add you to my email list, so that you are included in emailed updates from me; this is how I share the list of books awaiting review and other book news. Please email me at jo.dagustun@aims.org.uk
