The journal only publishes book reviews in English.
Provide, at the beginning of the review, the name of the author, year of publication, title (in italic), place of publication, publisher, and number of pages. For example: Schmidt, Garbi. 2004. Islam in Urban America. Sunni Muslims in Chicago. Philadelphia: Temple University Press. 256 pages.

References must include a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for sources that have one. Place the DOI-URL at the end of the reference. To find out if a reference has a DOI, search by title or author at http://search.crossref.org/.
