MIDDLETOWN, CT — The Choice Outstanding Academic Titles (OAT) list for 2023 has been announced. This prestigious list, released today, reflects the best scholarly titles reviewed by Choice during the previous calendar year, as chosen by the editors. This year’s list features 499 books from 109 publishers. 

Bill Mickey, Choice editorial director, remarked, "After sorting through the several thousand titles we reviewed this year, we’re proud to present the best of the bunch. Congratulations to the authors, editors, and publishers on this incredible collection of scholarship."

As in previous years, Choice editors will present a weekly series of “sneak peeks” into the 2023 OAT list, providing an overview of the year’s best academic nonfiction in select subject areas. While the Outstanding Academic Titles list in its entirety is only available to Choice magazine and Choice Reviews subscribers, these curated mini-lists continue to be available to non-subscribers via email newsletter and also on the Choice 360 website.  

Visit the Choice website at each week for a new mini-list of the 2023 OATs — featuring themes such as top 10 titles, subject-specific selections, or timely collections. If you prefer to receive a weekly list snippet in your inbox, you may sign up for the Outstanding Academic Titles newsletter at
