Welcome to the Reviewing Handbook
The handbook features an organized collection of newsletters from the "Reviewing Newsletter" run by the members of "Reviewing News and Views" [E]. This handbook was created by a group consisting of readers as well as editors of the newsletter, which are listed in "Credits" . The handbook is part of a compromise between the Reviewing Newsletter's desire to release newsletters at irregular intervals and SMs desire for the Reviewing Newsletter to become an official part of Writing.Com. The idea was to have the newsletters from the Reviewing Newsletter compiled into a book item and be put in the support folder.
The purpose of the handbook is to help readers of the newsletter improve their skills in reading and communication in reference to reviewing. To do this, the Reviewing Handbook has been divided into several sections, and more will be added if need be. Below are sections that have been currently included in the handbook. Each link leads to an explanation of the information contained in each section.
