Resource review guidance

Networks publishes resource (usually book) reviews that have been written by colleagues who share their experiences and recommendations, and describe their use of various learning resources in the context of art, design and media education.  It is hoped that the reviews provide a valuable source of information about resources used in art, design and media enabling those involved in teaching and learning in this subject area to benefit from the experience of colleagues.

Reviews should be approximately 800 - 1,200 words long.

Please include the following information:

  • Name of reviewer, job title and department
  • Institution
  • Name of reviewed item
  • Author(s) / Editor(s)
  • Publisher
  • Publication / release date
  • ISBN number (if applicable)
  • Technical details (if relevant)
  • Price
  • Review


Please use the Harvard referencing system described in the Referencing guide.  The use of footnotes or endnotes is discouraged.


Completed reviews should be submitted within six weeks of the date when the resource was sent or the agreement made.

Submit as a Microsoft Word document to Debbie Flint:

On acceptance of your review we will send you £50 worth of book tokens and you are free to keep any review copy that we send to you.

Evaluation of submitted content

Please note that we are unable to publish all reviews submitted; articles will be reviewed by the Networks team and evaluated for their relevance to the subject community, anticipated interest and timeliness. You may be asked to make amendments. If you would like to make a speculative enquiry or discuss a submission please contact Debbie Flint:
