That only took a year.

As any reader of academic journals knows, the time between publication and the first reviews of someone’s book can seem like an eternity. It seems that the Journal of American History got one of my book up in a little more than a year.

It’s mostly a nice summary of the complicated argument with the few subjective assessments being positive. I’ll take that any day!

Happy for you success. In my corner, we publish only papers in journal and refereed conferences. Some of the conferences are difficult to get into and weigh as much as journal papers.

Most the publicans in my field are worthless and have no scientific contribution. I wonder what is quality in other fields.

Thanks Jack,

History articles have an even slower publication time horizon than book reviews. I’ve heard of journals backed up for three years or more.
