Call for Media/Book Reviews



After a hiatus, the Journal of Jazz Studies is back presenting scholarly research via articles and reviews of jazz-related materials and disciplines. And we are reaching out to essayists and reviewers of books, recordings, videos and other media.

Is there a film, box set, podcast or documentary that you would like to explore that hasn't been written about previously? A book that may be a hidden treasure, or one that you take issue with?  We are seeking reviews of 2,000 words or less or more in-depth review essays (2,000-5,000 words). This is the place to share your research and opinions!!!

In particular, this is a great opportunity for first-time writers and junior scholars, particularly, but not exclusively in a degree program. We will go over your work carefully and assist you in the final preparation of your essay/review.

We look forward to hearing from you, and having you join us in this renewed adventure in research!

Please contact our Reviews Editor, Jeff Sultanof (, for more information or submit directly to the journal using our online submission system
