I wrote this book review for a class that I took almost two years ago. One of the topics we covered in said class revolved around the steps towards getting research and reviews published in academic journals. So a couple weeks after the semester wrapped up, I decided, “What the hell, I’m gonna give this a shot,” and I submitted the review to The Journal of Sport History.
Much to my surprise, I received a response the next day requesting that I submit additional information in order that the journal could publish my book review. The world of academia runs on its own timetable, sometimes aggravatingly so, and the whole process has taken quite some time from start to finish. And even though this issue of the journal is dated Fall 2015, the online version of it posted only in the last week.
If you happen to be on a college campus or otherwise have access to a subscription, you can find the electronic version of the journal here: http://muse.jhu.edu/journal/474
But as I imagine most folks don’t have this kind of access, here is the PDF version of my review: Published review – The Baseball Trust
