Journal of IOA Seeks Book Reviewers

The Journal for the International Ombudsman Association has a new initiative to spur interest from book and media reviewers. The Journal recently obtained publishers' copies of books relevant to the Ombuds community.

Standards for book/media reviews are as follows:

  • Comment on the implications for ombuds practice
  • Should allow ombuds to learn how the book is useful to their work
  • Should not exceed 1,200 words

If you are interested in reviewing one of the titles below, here is how you do it:

  1. Email jioa@ombudsassociation.org with the title of the available book you wish to review. A JIOA team member will email you back informing you if the book you request is still available.
  2. Upon approval, you will be provided with a due date for your book review draft. You have 60 days to submit the draft. A JIOA team member will mail you a copy of the book you have selected for review. If the review is completed, you get to keep the book – free as a thank you for your willingness to review! If you do not finish the review, the book must be returned to JIOA.
  3. Drafts must be submitted according to author guidelines found the JIOA webpage. It will also be reviewed according to the currently published JIOA Review Process.

It’s that easy! (JIOA.)
