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.

Editorial Reviews

?This work provides information about nearly 300 ethnic periodicals in the US. The annotated entries are arranged by ethnic group, including such diverse groups as Greek Americans, Croatians, and Lithuanians. An appendix includes a list of ethnic periodicals that did not respond to the questionnaire sent out by the compiler. The entries in the main section address would-be contributors by providing practical information about submission and format and describing the focus of the materials considered useful by the journal editors.... Ireland's compilation is recommended for use in undergraduate and graduate libraries as well as in public and special libraries. It will serve the interests of historians, sociologists, and political scientists.?-Choice
