The Quality of a Journal can be Reflected in the Quality of the Book Reviews

Eastern European Institute of Theology held the third seminar of Foundations of Academic Literacy for Authors of Scholarly Articles, which aims to form and develop authors' competencies in writing theological articles for academic journals. A speaker of the third seminar was Clive Pearson, Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Public Theology. Clive Pearson shared his experience as the editor of an international theological journal across languages and cultures. He discussed common mistakes in writing book reviews, what principles should be observed for making high-quality reviews, and how to distinguish a good review from a bad one.
