Fortner, Sandra
The purpose of this study is to analyze the nature of materials used by scholars in the field of Appalachian studies. Citations were analyzed from four monographic works: "Appalachia and the Politics of Culture,""Appalachia in an International Context,""Appalachia: Social Context, Past and Present," and "Appalachia in the Making." Findings of the investigation revealed that: (1) men publish more articles than women relevant to Appalachia; (2) the articles were most frequently published in journals; (3) the subject most frequently written about was Sociology; (4) most articles were published in the United States; and (5) most of the articles had references that were more than 10 years old.
