ABELL is widely regarded as one of the most important bibliographical sources for English studies, and an indispensable tool for scholars in this field.

The first volume -- reporting items published in 1920 -- was published in 1921, and the most recent volume covers the report year 2012.

The volumes are compiled by a worldwide team of volunteer contributors, and edited by teams based both in Cambridge, England, and in Massachusetts, USA.

 

Latest Volume

New Vol. 87 (reporting material published in the year 2012) is now available in print (ISBN 978-1-78188-054-8; ISSN 0066-3786) from Turpin Distribution and online from ProQuest.

 

2014 Pricing

Vol. 87 is priced at 212/$450 (178/$377 for Permanent Institutional Members).

 

 

Scope

The Bibliography aims to list annually all scholarly articles, books and reviews concerning English language and literature and related topics published anywhere in the world, and in any language. (Education and pedagogical subjects, and the medical application of linguistics, are excluded.)

The list of subjects covered includes: Drama; Poetry; Fiction; Biography; Literary Theory; Film; Bibliography; Traditional Culture; Onomastics; Lexicography; Dialectology.

 

Format

Annual printed volumes appear each autumn and are published by the MHRA.

A cumulative database version of ABELL is also available online from Chadwyck-Healey, both in its own right, and as a part of the Literature Online service which includes links from the bibliographic records to the full text of the articles or reviews wherever possible. The Editors supply monthly updates for this service and the database now includes more than one million records.
