British First World War periodicals 1914-1919

How to cite this Dataset


This list of the periodicals published in Britain during the years of the First World War was assembled from a number of sources, and consists of over 1000 titles of periodicals, categorised as either magazines, journals or newspapers, and then assigned to one or more subject categories. The dataset records whether the title was in print during each year of the period under study, and in most cases adds notes on the provenance of the data (if not from the Writers� & Artists� Yearbook, A&C Black, 1914-19), and other remarks on amalgamation and content where known. These data are not comprehensive but the list represents the most detailed assessment of periodicals in print for this period.
