Call for Reviewers

The Popular Culture Studies Journal is now seeking reviewers for its upcoming issues. Starting this year however we are not only seeking reviews of books on any aspect of U.S. or international popular culture, but we have opened the section to include movies, shows, and games (reviews of video and board games will be welcomed). These newer options are an exciting new addition and I am personally thrilled to see how this will deepen our thoughts on the impact popular culture has on our everyday lives.

If you are interested in writing a review for The Popular Culture Studies Journal please email Dr. Malynnda A. Johnson at malynnda.johnson@indstate.edu with PCSJ Book Review and your last name in the subject line. In the email, we ask that you also include a current CV as well as a brief overview of your research/teaching areas of interest. Please note that if you have already reviewed a book for the journal in the 2018-2019 we ask that you please allow others to contribute.

Reviews should adhere to the ethos of The Popular Culture Studies Journal and be largely positive with any criticism of the author/creator being constructive in nature. For more information about this journal, please visit: http://mpcaaca.org/the-popular-culture-studies-journal/

Reviews are roughly 800-1,000 words and should be typed, double-spaced with 12 pt. Times New Roman font.  Research and documentation must adhere to The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers and The MLA Style Manual, which require a Works Cited list, with parenthetical author/page references in the text. Punctuation, capitalization, hyphenation, and other matters of style must also follow The MLA Handbook and The MLA Style Manual.   

If you are an author or publisher with a book you would like to have reviewed, please contact Dr. Malynnda Johnson.
