Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This study deals with the quality of book reviewing by the New York Times Book Review and the New York Review of Books. Thirty-three pairs of reviews of books reviewed in 1974 by both reviewing journals comprised the population of the study. Three areas were examined by means of a weighted checklist: author information, content, information and style information. Length of reviews, qualifications of reviewers, focus on issues in reviews and advocacy of position on issues in reviews were also examined.
