Book Reviews: Science and Technology Book Review Sources

Science and Technology Sources

Book reviews are not very common in the scientific disciplines. However, Web of Science is a large multidisciplinary database which does include the option to limit your search to only book reviews, and you may find book reviews from the sciences there. 

Note: Be aware that when searching for reviews in scientific databases, you may come across "review papers", which are different than book reviews. A review paper will summarize and evaluate or interpret several pieces of existing research on one topic. It will not be a review of one specific book.
