Book reviewing as a process of scholarly interaction is as old as the scientific community itself. The earliest journals, launched in the major European countries in the later part of the 17th century, consisted primarily of book notices. They extended through print the endeavor of the academies to acquaint the learned with each other's work, and thus became one of the channels of scholarship through which the scientific community constitutes itself.
