Each December, Choice publishes its Outstanding Academic Titles (OAT) list. This prestigious list reflects the best in scholarly titles reviewed by Choice during the previous calendar year and brings with it the extraordinary recognition of the academic community. This year’s complete list features 521 books and digital resources from 132 publishers.
As initiated with the 2018 awards, Choice editors will continue to present a popular weekly series of “sneak peeks” into the 2019 OAT list, providing an overview of the year’s best academic nonfiction in selected subject areas. While the eagerly awaited Outstanding Academic Titles list in its entirety is only available to Choice magazine and Choice Reviews subscribers, these mini-lists will now be available to non-subscribers as well.
Reflecting upon this year’s list, Bill Mickey, Choice editorial director, remarked, “We’re very excited to publish this list a month earlier, just in time for Holiday shopping! As always, the OATs—recognizing hundreds of titles—represent a remarkable cross-section of published research and we’re proud to shine a spotlight on the hard work from authors, editors, and publishers in the academic community.”
Visit the Choice website each week for a new, themed carve-out of the 2019 OATs—featuring themes such as top 10 titles, subject-specific titles, or timely collections.
