Seeking Books to Review

The IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication reviews books on communication practices of technical professionals and professional communicators. We also review books that use theory and research-based studies to inform the practice and teaching of technical and professional communication. We currently do not review self-published books or e-books.

If you have recently published a book that meets these criteria—or would like to recommend a book published in the area of technical and professional communication that does—please contact Book Review Editor Tiffany Portewig at so she can acquire a review copy and assign it to a reviewer.
