Call for Reviewers – The Journal of Literature and Science

The Journal of Literature and Science is once again looking for reviewers to review various articles in the field literature and science published in the last year to 18 months.

Just to remind members, the JLS is unique in reviewing journal articles rather than books in the fields of literature and science and the history and philosophy of science. As such, we believe our reviews offer scholars and students a truly valuable guide to some of the most recent and cutting edge research in the field.

Please find below are a number of articles that we would like to offer members the chance to review for the Journal’s forthcoming 2015 issuse. Its largely first come, first served, so do get in touch with an offer to do a specific article

I’d also be very happy for members to suggest other relevant articles for review that they may have come across and that aren’t listed below – please do let me know.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

Michelle Geric
