All books in the series are listed below, and can be viewed in subject, author, title, or publication date order.
We welcome feedback from users on books in the series.
Let us know what you found useful, and what we could improve for future editions, and what new titles you would like to see in this series.
Feedback from GPs and junior doctors is invaluable to us because we try to publish books that meet your needs. All new proposals for books are reviewed by GPs and specialists and all books are critically reviewed by GPs before publication.
As a proposal reviewer, you would look at an outline for a new book or new edition. This would include reviewing the author's proposal document, a sample contents list, and sample material. You would be asked to answer 10-15 questions about the content, organization, style, etc.
We generally ask to have your comments back in 2-4 weeks and we offer free books from our catalogue as honorarium.
As a manuscript reviewer, you would look in detail through a book which is in draft form. You would be asked to critically review the quality of the material, appraising the book's approach, writing style, and compatibility with your own daily practice requirements, and would provide suggestions for how the book could be improved. Manuscript reviews are more in-depth than proposal reviews and we offer a fee for each review.
If you are interested in joining our ABC review team and want to make a difference to the books we publish, then please let us know.
