Use of Review Excerpts

Excerpts from your reviews may be used by De Gruyter for promotional or marketing purposes. De Gruyter agrees to comply with the following standards of the German Publishers and Booksellers Association when using excerpts from reviews:

  1. Excerpts shall consist of no more than five sentences, though the selection of several unrelated passages is permissible.
  2. Excerpts shall be reproduced accurately. Any abridgements must preserve the original meaning. The selection of excerpts shall be consistent with the general spirit of the review.

  3. Excerpts shall always include the name of the publication and the name of the reviewer.
  4. The sole purpose of excepts shall be to publicize the reviewed book. This comprises the usual advertising and product information for all marketing channels (on- and offline), including the use of excerpts in the product catalogs and databases. Review excerpts may also be used in the context of public relations, licensing and events, such as readings and trade fairs.

De Gruyter agrees to use book reviews from our journals in accordance with the rules of the German Publishers and Booksellers Association.
