Many thanks to all of you, and indeed Steve is right to be careful about information supplied by publishers! ;) Warm wishes for the holidays and for a peaceful, prosperous 2008, Karen.

EBSCO's Serials Directory or Ulrich's International Periodical Directory are both capable of answering Karen's need to identify periodicals in particular topic areas. The advantage Ulrich's has is that being published by Bowker, the database includes reviews published in Magazines for Libraries. I find Ulrich's search capabilities to be a tad better, too.

All users of either product should be aware that much of the information is supplied by the publishers. For example, a publisher may choose not to supply circulation information. As with Who's Who or any resource where the person or entity the entry is about provides the information, caveat lector (reader beware).
