AC Review of Books began in 2019 as a digital publication offering a reviewing platform for academic texts that spoke across disciplines or had an element of popular appeal. Launched by the team behind the popular Academic Chatter Twitter account, it started life as a section on the Academic Chatter website (no longer in operation), and relaunched on its own dedicated platform in 2022. At this time it also broadened its remit to include reviews of literary and experimental fiction, plays, and poetry.

Contributors are academics, from postgraduates to professors, and from universities around the world. If you would like to write for us, please see our submissions page for more information.
