Noteworthy Books for AEQ Readers
  • What's noteworthy?
  • After ten years of publishing Academic Exchange Quarterly, we have a good knowledge which books are frequently referenced by authors published in AEQ journal. Additional input from readers, teachers, publishers, authors defines more the book's worthiness, e.g. the book is
    1. used in my class
    2. recommended in my teaching for further reading
    3. discussed at a workshop, conference
  • We do not rate the books or write our own reviews. Our listing, usually updated bimonthly, is subjective and limited by the said "What's noteworthy?" Consequently, we cannot guarantee that every submitted book will be accepted.
  • Books listed, we are confident, are noteworthy for your academic, scholarly pursuit.
