GAPEBIBS provide brief guides to the literature on assorted topics in the Gilded Age and Progressive Era. The bibliographies are intended to assist several constituencies that use our list: gape period specialists, graduate students, non-academicians, and h-net readers on other lists who may receive cross-posts from H-SHGAPE. Each GAPEBIB will contain both references to the literature in a specific subfield and observations about scholarly developments with this area. Hopefully this format will allow the essays to become short state-of-art commentaries on particular fields. Authors have the freedom to shape the field as they see fit.
l. Length: 3 to 5 single spaced pages, with line gaps separating paragraphs. (Roughly equivalent to 6 to 10 double-spaced pages of conventional text, or about 1,250 to 2,500 words).
2. Deliver copy to H-SHGAPE in ascii format. Book and journal titles may be capitalized or denoted as follows: _My Book on the GAPE_ .
3. Bibliographic essays should bear a title and the author'name and email address.
4. GAPEBIBS may reference unpublished materials, such as dissertations, MA theses, conferences papers (including materials archived with H-NET), and important archival collections. However, the primary goal is to inform readers of the most important published literature on the topic.
GAPEBIBS will be archived on H-SHGAPE's web page and gopher.
