H-Animal, an H-Net network for scholars across the disciplines who are engaged in the study of animals in human culture, seeks to recruit an energetic team of review editors to oversee a book review program in this relatively new, wildly diverse, and quickly growing field. H-Net Reviews has built a reputation for scholarly reviews over the last twenty years, taking advantage of the flexibility and relative speed of online publication while maintaining the highest scholarly standards.

H-Net review editors solicit and edit reviews of recently published books in animal studies and related fields. Possible additional areas of review coverage could include conferences, educational and documentary films, teaching materials, or online resources. H-Net handles all book ordering and mailing, and we have professional copyeditors on staff who help to ensure that all reviews adhere to H-Net's standards & guidelines for reviewing. 

Qualifications: Graduate degree or equivalent in any area of animal studies or related field. Review editors are trained to use the online reviews management system and serve for two-year renewable terms. All editors must be certified by the H-Net Council. Learn more about the certification process here.
