The Core Journal Concept in Black Studies
Weissinger, Thomas
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v36 n2 p119-124 Mar 2010
Black Studies scholars have shown interest in the core journal concept. Indeed, the idea of core journals for the study of the Black experience has changed several times since 1940. While Black Studies scholars are citing Black Studies journals with frequency, they also cite traditional disciplinary journals a great deal of the time. However, although useful, traditional disciplinary journals are not touted as Black Studies journals. This article examines the reasons why traditional disciplinary journals have been excluded from the Black Studies core and argues that some of these journals ought to have a place there. (Contains 2 tables.)
