Today, periodicals research is a fully recognized and acknowledged literary specialty and constitutes an important part of the British nineteenth-century prose legacy. It provides a particularly attractive field for younger scholars because of its distinct interdisciplinary nature. Collections of titles have been identified for such varied fields as: the professions (law, medicine, architecture, science, and the military); the arts (music, theatre, the fine arts, illustration); occupations and commerce (transport, agriculture, financial and trade); popular culture (temperance, comedy, sport, education, and women’s issues); and both workers’ and student journals. Doubtless many similar collections could be assembled pertaining to other fields. Preliminary research has also been carried out on development of the periodical press in British colonial society: see two references; Vann and VanArsdel, Victorian Periodicals and Victorian Society (1994) and Periodicals of Queen Victoria’s Empire (1996).
