Fast Rev.s of Bks in Ren.Int.Hist.: End or change?
21.12.2011 at 11:40:53
 
2011 will be/have been the last year with me in charge of Fast Reviews of Books in Renaissance Intellectual History.  
 
I have become extremely sceptical concerning the literary genre of "scholarly review" taking into account they way such reviews are done today and can be done today. (There are various aspects: the reasons to write a review, the selection of items to review, the selection of reviewers, guidelines for reviewing, quality control, readership, the late 19th century being a past era, ... .)
But I may be wrong on this and these.
 
So: if you consider yourself as apt and willing to act as an editor for Fast Reviews of Books in Renaissance Intellectual History from 2012 onwards: please let me know before 2012-01-15, either via Web4Ren Forum (W4RF) or via email to hck@lrz.uni-muenchen.de , or perhaps via G+.
(Please note that I'll be on vacation from the afternoon of 2011-12-23 to 2012-01-09, so that chances are that I'll read responses to this item here far later than they were written.)

No new Fast Reviews of Books in Renaissance Intellectual History will be published from 2012 onwards. This project has come to an end. Reviews published from 1998 through 2011 will remain available via our server.  
 
For this and more information: see http://www.phil-hum-ren.uni-muenchen.de/FastReviews/FRhome.htm .

nunc cf. etiam : Lynn Worsham:  The Endangered Scholarly Book Review (2012-04-01)
 
Quote:
More and more scholarly journals seem to be shrinking or considering eliminating their book-review sections. That is a sad trend.
