The Signpost
Review desk

Review desk

This is The Signpost review desk. Its purpose is to coordinate reviews of new books that explore topics of relevance to the Wikipedia community.

How it works[edit]

The review desk acts as a holding pen for submissions to give feedback and try to find ways to improve and polish them, and to collect sets of related pieces. The publication of book reviews is at the ultimate discretion of the Signpost's editors-in-chief, Andreas Kolbe and Pete Forsyth. Do you have a book review you'd like to write or propose to publish? If so please read and understand the submission guidelines below, then create a new submission in the submissions column below with the title of the book and some general impressions which you would like to (or already have) expanded into a full review.

Would you like to publish an review you've already written? Do the same as you would with a new proposal, but be sure to include a link to the review in your submission. Note that the Signpost emphasizes recently published literature. If you are unsure whether or not your essay is topical enough or recent enough for publication, the best thing to do is to submit a proposal and wait for feedback from our editor(s)-in-chief.

Would you like to comment on essays and ideas currently under consideration? Feel free to do so; this process is open to the community at large. While submissions that take strong positions on important issues are welcome, we ask that comments be kept constructive. If you are unclear on any of the process or have questions related thereto, feel free to reach out to us through Feedback.

If you are ready to submit a proposal you may use the button below to do so.
