||The International Index to Black Periodicals (IIBP) includes current and retrospective bibliographic citations and abstracts from scholarly journals and newsletters from the United States, Africa and the Caribbean, with full-text coverage of core Black Studies periodicals. The Marshall Index is a guide to black periodicals from 1940-1946. Most IIBP records in the current coverage contain an abstract, and additionally many IIBP records contain the corresponding full text of the original article. Coverage is international in scope and multidisciplinary, spanning cultural, economic, historical, religious, social, and political issues of vital importance to the Black Studies discipline. NOTE- results from research are returned in reverse chronological order and not all records include subject indexing, particularly for articles prior to 1998.
