Columbia University Book Review

From Columbia Review Of Books

(Redirected from Main Page)


The Columbia University Book Review is an undergraduate publication of Columbia University in the City of New York. The paper is administered by a dedicated group of students who write, edit and publish it on a bi-weekly basis. While primarily concerned with book reviews the magazine pursues critiques of a vast array of interdisciplinary arts.

Founded at the begining of 2006 the Columbia University Book Review hopes to start publication by the begining of April this semester. Distribution is planned to start at central campus and spread outward pending budget and printing constraints. Our ultimate goal is serve Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and other affliated sources as time progresses as well as online subscribers around the city.

The Columbia University Book Review is dedicated to open operations and collaboration with our readers. We have placed our current work as well as our future projects here open to comment. Unlike many other campus publications are articles are supplied solely by staff writers as opposed to the magazine taking general submissions. This does not mean that you cannot have your work published with the Columbia University Book Review but only that we ask that contributors serve on a staff position in the process. This allows for the paper to pool its contributors editing ability as well as better allocate our limited resources.
