Unlike lists of serials designed to assist contributors in submitting manuscripts, this one attempts to aid in selection of serials for library collections in a time of shrinking library budgets. Serials published abroad in English are included, as are interdisciplinary journals (e.g., library journals) with substantial coverage of education. Journal titles are given item numbers and and are arranged under broad headings (e.g., Media and television, ' Multicultural issues, ' Reading and language arts, ' Adult and continuing education'). . . . Well-organized, thoroughly indexed, and easy to read, this bibliography will be useful to any academic library seeking to improve its coverage of educational serials. "Choice"

This annotated bibliography is the first volume devoted to the national and international scholarly journals that form a basic scholarly resource for the field. Providing an overview of English-language publications, it is designed to aid librarians responsible for collection development and to assist scholars and other professionals in choosing journals for reading or the submission of manuscripts. More than 800 publications are considered. Types of sources include association publications, major journals that publish original research and reviews, regional and governmental publications, review journals, newsletters, and a number of popular journals addressed to teaching professionals. Relevant titles from related disciplines, such as child welfare, adolescent study, and psychology, are listed. The annotation accompanying each entry describes the focus and scope of the publication, compares it with similar titles, and identifies the most appropriate audience for readership and professional use. Information concerning manuscript selection policy, availability, price frequency of publication, special issues, reviewing, indexing/abstracting, reprints, microforms, and databases is supplied for each title.
