I'm a Journalist/member of the Media - What do you recommend for my Profile?


If you're a journalist or member of the media, here are a few tips for your Profile:

Basic Information:

  • Use the dropdown to indicate where you primarily promote authors/books (online, print, radio, film, TV, etc).
  • Add your outlet/company name.
  • In your Bio, include your position and responsibilities at your company.
  • If you are a freelance journalist, please indicate in your Bio your past freelance assignments.
  • If you post reviews on your website or blog, indicate which is the primary place you recommend books (and audiobooks) in your Bio. Then, add any other links where your reviews appear or are promoted (such as websites, other blogs, etc.)
  • Be sure to connect your social accounts, too!*

*Please note that your social profile must be public if you plan to share your review links with publishers! 

Reading Preferences:

  • Topics - For example, if you listen to Audiobooks and/or are in a Book Club.
  • Add the Categories that interest you the most - you'll receive special recommendations on your dashboard and via email based on your interests.

Additional Information:

  • If possible, use your company/professional email address.
  • Professional Associations you are a member of, that are relevant to your use of NetGalley, should be listed in your Bio.
  • By default, public reviews on the NetGalley site will be displayed with your profile photo, first name, last initial, and member type. If you prefer, you can replace your name with an auto-generated alias displayed next to your reviews instead.
