Publisher Guidelines for Review Groups

If you are a publisher and would like to be included in our review process, please contact the SWON Libraries office at (513) 751-4422 or email us.

 

Publishers

SWON is home to several review groups. If you would like to submit a finished copy to be reviewed, please follow the guidelines below. Our reviewers are comprised of mainly children's and teen librarians. Unfortunately, we do not review adult materials at this time.

 

To submit teen material:

Reviewer's of Young Adult Literature (ROYAL) reviews books for and about teenagers, aged 12 through 18, and for new adults. Teen librarians and staff who work closely with teens will be reviewing fiction and non-fiction works with an eye for quality, possible popularity, and how they may incorporate the title into programs or services. Copies of each review will be e-mailed to the publisher. Please provide a valid e-mail address when submitting titles.

Preferences:

  • Titles that are either published, about to be published, or at most roughly a year old
  • Titles intended for ages 12 through 18
  • Fiction, non-fiction, and graphic novels are welcome

 

To submit children's material:

The Children's Literature and Evaluation and Review (CLEAR) groups review books for and about children, aged birth through 12. Children's librarians and staff who work closely with children will be reviewing fiction and non-fiction works with an eye for quality, possible popularity, and how they may incorporate the title into programs or services. Copies of each review will be e-mailed to the publisher. Please provide a valid e-mail address when submitting titles.

Preferences:

  • Titles that are either published, about to be published, or at most roughly a year old
  • Titles intended for ages 0 through 12
  • Fiction, non-fiction, and graphic novels are welcome
  • Please refrain from sending coloring books, books with worksheets to write on, and other materials not suited to a library environment.
