Ethnic Periodicals in Contemporary America provides easy and accessible information on 290 ethnic-interest periodicals, 32 of which have multiple ethnic-group listings, published in the United States. The basic information about the structure of the publication is presented in an easy-to-read data base format followed by a narrative about the editorial content/focus of the publication. In addition to this information, a list of the non-responding periodicals, complete with known addresses, is provided, and when appropriate, non-deliverable questionnaire responses are also included in this text. This guide is structured to provide basic information about the framework of the publication in a database format. This includes information of some 30 areas of the periodicals' publication structure and policies. Further information about the editorial content and focus of the periodicals is provided in the description of the publication. The description is based on information provided by editors and/or publishers who responded to a comprehensive questionnaire designed to find out about each publication. The questionnaire is also included in this book. In many of the publications, editors and/or publishers have provided valuable information to help contributors with writing skills and submission of manuscripts. Beyond providing information about targeting ethnic-interest periodicals and groups, this book contains the most comprehensive listing of ethnic periodicals in the United States, thus making it easier for other researchers to focus in on such areas as linguistics, immigration and assimilation into existing cultures through the periodicals, anthropology, geography, genealogy, social andpolitical history through the popular medium of the periodicals, and many other areas of interest.
