DNCJ is a large-scale reference work covering the journalism industry in nineteenth-century Britain. Its comprehensive representation of diverse facets of the industry provides a snapshot of the press, from journalist to reader. Its 1630 entries, by an international team of experts and researchers, reflect the range of the press, including art, children, illustration, literature, religion, sports, politics, local and regional titles, satire, and trade journals. DNCJ includes newspapers and periodicals in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Here you will find entries on journals, journalists, illustrators, editors, publishers, proprietors, printers, and topics, such as Advertising, Frequency, Magazine Day, Printing presses, Readership, Social science and the press, and War and journalism. The editors and a team of thirteen Associate Editors have shaped it, in collaboration with the research community. Authoritative new research, extensive indexes, a wide-ranging bibliography and a chronology enhance the coverage of this burgeoning field.
