Observations on the indexing of history: the example of the Journal of American History

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (1989), 16, (3), 159–162.

Abstract

In 1987 the ‘Recent Articles’ and ‘Recent Dissertations’ sections of the Journal of American History were combined to form the present ‘Recent Scholarship’ section. The geographical divisions under which articles were originally classified had gradually been augmented by categories covering historical periods, demographic groups, and material life (business/economics). These changes, reviewed in this paper, reflect the widening interests of the historians reading the journal.
