Write a book review

If you are interested in writing a book review for The Industrial Physicist, please contact Cynthia B. Cummings, Publishing Assistant. Send your name, affiliation and expertise, address, phone number, and e-mail address, and the title of the book you’re interested in reviewing. We ask that potential reviewers disclose any possible conflict of interest when asking to review a particular book, such as being a friend or relative of the author.

All reviewers will be provided a copy of the book to review, as well as a copy of the American Institute of Physics’ copyright agreement to sign. The reviews should be original, about 500 words in length, and should not only describe the content but also offer critical appraisal of the book. The review is due one month after your receipt of the book to be reviewed. The publisher reserves the right to decide which reviews to publish.

We would like to have reviewed the following books, which will appear on our December 2004/January 2005 Book List page:
