Call for Reviewers

H-Low Countries is pleased to announce the revival of our network's own book reviews program. H-Net Reviews play an increasingly prominent role in academic discussions, taking advantage of the flexibility and relative speed of online publication while maintaining the highest scholarly standards. And now, under the H-Commons platform, list editors can easily crosspost reviews from other networks, greatly expanding the potential readership for reviews published on our network. 

My colleague Hubert van Tuyll and I have recently been certified as H-Net Reviews Editors and are excited to create a new pool of reviewers. Reviewers should have demonstrated intellectual expertise and possess or be in the final stages of completion of a terminal graduate degree in their fields. If you wish to join the pool, please send an email to and with a current CV and the following information:

  • areas of specialization for which you would be a qualified reviewer (i.e. discipline, historical period)
  • languages other than English in which you can competently read scholarly work

Although some networks publish reviews written in languages other than English, we ask reviewers to write reviews in English only, so as to allow for crossposting at other networks.

We expect to begin commissioning reviews shortly. Please be aware that we cannot accept unsolicited offers to review specific books. H-Net Reviews holds strict guidelines for avoiding potential conflicts of interest among authors and reviewers.

We look forward to hearing from you!
