Since 1933, the Victorian Bibliography has listed noteworthy publications (including articles, books, and reviews) that have a bearing on the Victorian period. Prepared by the staff of Victorian Studies and a committee of the Victorian Division of the Modern Language Association of America, the Bibliography annually indexes over 400 journals, representing scholarship in a range of disciplines. The Victorian Bibliography is organized in a six part division: Section 1 lists both enumerative bibliographies relating to the period and studies of printing, publishing, libraries, and book production. Section 2 lists documents, general histories, and studies in historiography. Section 3 (subdivided into six parts) lists titles on Victorian economics, education, politics, religion, science, and social environment. Section 4 lists references to all arts except literature, including studies of architecture, household arts, landscape, music, painting, the performing arts, photography, and sculpture. Section 5 focuses exclusively on literature, literary history, and the development of literary forms. Section 6 lists individual authors, first citing significant new editions of their works and then listing critical and biographical studies; journals devoted to individual authors are enumerated in this section in single, extended entries, but reviews appearing in their pages are listed under the title of the book reviewed.
