I am pleased at the number of requests we receive weekly at The Canadian Creative Arts in Health, Training and Education Journal (CCAHTE) from authors, editors and publishers requesting book reviews.
At CCAHTE we receive hundreds of requests for book reviews. As we are so frequently approached to review many excellent new books and texts related to the creative arts in health, training and education , and our limited schedules cannot accommodate all of the requests we receive, we have developed a new policy with regard to book reviews.
1. first step, you will be asked to read this post.
2. next, send us a synopsis about your book to firstname.lastname@example.org and link us to any news about it. A sample chapter would be ideal.
3. Based on the synopsis you could be asked to send your book directly to the CCAHTE Office.
A payment by certified cheque or money order of $100 to cover administrative costs should be sent with your package.

Once we receive your book we will complete a formal book review. The review will be published in our upcoming CCAHTE, Canadian Creative Arts in Health, Training and Education Journal issue in our book review section.
In addition, we will also arrange to publish a summary post about your book at the Arts and Health "Crossing Borders" BLOG at ccahtecrossingborders.blogspot.com. Our blog is accessed daily by international visitors specifically interested in our interdisciplinary field.
Why do we charge a fee for reviews? We are an open access journal available and accessible free worldwide and we do not charge for subscriber memberships or subscriptions. Services such as reviews help sustain our publishing operations.
