Readers' Guide to Periodical Literature


Readers' Guide to Periodical Literature

"The Readers' Guide to Periodical Literature" is a reference guide to recently published articles in periodical magazines and scholarly journals, organized by article subject. "The Readers' Guide" has been published regularly since 1901 by The H. W. Wilson Company, and is a staple of public and academic reference libraries throughout the United States; a retrospective index of general periodicals published from 1890 to 1900 is also available.

Originally, "The Readers' Guide" was published on a biweekly basis, with later issues incorporating the previous content in larger copies until the index for the entire year was published. This format has since been complimented with an online version which is marketed to libraries.
