Book Reviews: The Basics

The most important full-text journal databases, JSTOR and ProjectMUSE, are both excellent tools for locating scholarly book reviews. Use JSTOR to find reviews of books with an imprint more than a few years old, and ProjectMUSE to find reviews of books published in the last several years. Please keep in mind that all three of these databases index substantive journal articles in addition to book reviews, so be sure to limit your search to "Reviews" in JSTOR and "Reviews Only" in ProjectMUSE.
