Since June 1989, Richard G. Barlow has been a lecturer in the English department at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. His Ph.D. is from the Univerity of Michigan, May 1976, with his dissertation being a critical edition of a potion of The Complete Works of George Gascoigne. Among his credits is an article in Scholarly Publishing, “Form in the Preparation of Scholarly Manuscripts,” that was adapted from his introduction to the Fifth Directory.
The Fifth Directory of Periodicals is expressly organized for scholars in the humanities who are looking for appropriate places to submit manuscripts for publication. The Fourth Directory, published by Donna Gerstenberger and George Hendrick in 1974, provided access to a large selection of periodicals, but it has been out of print for some time.
