Dear H-Italy Subscribers,

To follow on David Prior's call for network editors, I would like to invite interested subscribers to join H-Italy's reviews team.

H-Italy has been publishing reviews of books in Italian history and culture under the umbrella of H-Net Reviews since 1994. Review editors covering the areas of Medieval/Byzantine, Renaissance, and Early Modern Italy recently stepped down, and qualified candidates are invited to apply.

H-Net review editors commission and edit reviews of scholarship in print or other media of interest to their network's subscribers. Review editors should have strong field qualifications (advanced candidacy or Ph.D.) in some area Italian history or studies, as well as tact, editorial competence, and a willingness to commit for a two-year, renewable term. H-Net provides training on H-Net's standards and guidelines for reviewing and in the use of the online reviews management system. H-Net also handles all book orders and mailing, as well as copyediting for every review.

H-Net Reviews has built a strong reputation for scholarly reviews, taking advantage of the flexibility and speed of online publication while maintaining the highest scholarly standards. Currently, H-Net Reviews is the largest online archive of professional scholarly reviews, with over 44,000 published reviews since 1993. Reviews are distributed to 1,500+ network subscribers, 4,200+ subscribers of H-Review, and made freely available to all on the H-Net Commons.

Serving as a review editor is a wonderful opportunity to stay connected with one's field of interest, collaborate with fellow scholars, promote readership and discussion of recent publications, and contribute to the advancement of different areas of Italian studies. It is a great service to the community of scholars and to the field.
