This was a labor and labor of love as well as a desire to learn what was available. The Chaplain by very definition is a "Minister" in a specialized setting, and the "specializations" and variety of settings often demand a broad range of skills, and the categories reflect some of skills and resources valuable to chaplains. The listing was culled, compiled, categorized and placed into HTML by M.G. Maness from four major listings:

1. Periodical Directory a Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS), Fort Worth, Texas. The full listing of SWBTS serials is nearly 600 pages long with over 5,000+ titles (accurate up to July of 2001); these titles are capitalized and reflect the following date scheme:
“1998-1999” = completed & now out of circulation;
“1900 … 1952” = from 1900 several publications ranges, complete to 1952;
“1850 … 1955-” = from 1850 through several publication ranges,
and from 1955 to present;
“1970-” = complete from 1970 to present. Any errors are mine.
The SWBTS Periodical Directory had yet to be placed on the web and reflects titles as of December 2001. The SWBTS library can be accessed at http://www.swbts.edu and each periodical can be verified individually from the on-line library.

2. Library of Congress serials from the dated 1982 Library of Congress list designated by “(LOC),” which can be found at http://lcweb.loc.gov.

3. Ulrich’s Periodical Directory which is the largest periodical archive in the world with 250,000+, accessed regularly by the world’s leading librarians, industries and businesses and located on the web at http://www.ulrichsweb.com/ulrichsweb. The titles are designated by (Ulrich). It should be pointed out that not all of the titles in following categories were searched; only the first 500 in each of the following search category results were accessible as of December 2001. Each category lists the number of periodicals in that have a reference by that search “word” as of December 2001:

Theology .... 7,851 Catholic 1,720 Psychology . 2,791
Ministry .... 1,969 Faith .... 256 Psy/analysis .. 87
Church ...... 1,533 Bible .... 410 Law ....... 22,772
Religious ... 1,533 Islam .... 125 Medicine ... 3,939
Religion ...... 764 Mulsim ... 117 Criminal ..... 770
Christian ... 1,514 God ...... 124 Crime ........ 410
Pastoral ...... 161 Judaism ... 76 Corrections .. 233
Pastoral Care .. 20 Hope ..... 227 Prison ....... 126
Chritianity ... 155 Divorce .. 108 - - - - - - - -
Christian Ed. . 156 Crisis ... 140 Pain ......... 164
Ethics ........ 696 Death .... 270 Suicide ....... 71
Ethics/Theology 162 Grief ..... 26 Bereavement ... 18

--Only these categories were searched, then assimilated into the combined listing.

4. Private Sources are designated “(P).”

Where the additional info seemed prudent, the duplicated entries were combined and the duplicate deleted on a case by case basis: e.g., most often where a SWBTS title (designated by ALL CAPS) and date range could be supplemented with additional info from an Ulrich title, the info from the Ulrich title was added at the end of the SWBTS title.

There are, perhaps, about 150 titles that were very difficult to place into a single section, and so they were duplicated into both sections. Not just 150, but perhaps many hundreds of titles could have been duplicated into two or more categories, especially from the religion section; however, no title was duplicated and placed into more than two sections (intentionally). For example: Review of Archaeology is in both the “Religion Specific” and “Archaeology...” sections; Law and Philosophy is in both the “Law...” and “Major Philosophical...” sections; Science, Technology, and Human Values is in both the “Religion Specific” and “Major Philosophical...” sections; Violence Against Women is in both the “Crisis...” and “Law...” sections; Palestine Exploration Quarterly is in both the “Archaeology...” and “Culture...”; and Springer Series on Ethics, Law, and Aging is in both the “Law...” and “Psychology...” sections.

Several titles, like Scientific American and NEA TODAY (National Education Association), were placed in the “Major Philosophical...” section with other clearly secular works because of their prominence and because many like them inform on Professional Chaplaincy and Ministering (either directly or indirectly on an irregular basis) as the Chaplains and Ministers cope with, organize and interface with and within institutions of our world.

The "Pastoral Care Basic Skill Titles" section contains titles that were thought pertinent to very "work" of any chaplain, but especially within the Christian traditions. The categories include works basic to other traditions. About 35 titles in this section were duplicates from the “Theological...,” "Archaeology…," "Psychology…" and other sections, as is clear from the nature of a Chaplain as a theological-religious interpreter and crisis manager. The other sections provide auxiliary support for the manifold specialities and faith specific specialty of the Chaplain or Minister. There were about 40 titles within the “Religion Specific Titles” section that were duplicated in two sub-sections. For example, Cross & Cresent is in both the “Theological...” and “Islam Titles” sections; and Messianic Jew is in both the “Christian...” and “Judaism...” sections. With respect to the “Religion Specific Titles” section, there could have been other sub-categories by various disciplines such as theological studies, biblical studies, biblical backgrounds, individual religions, religious education, religious supervision, mission studies, organizational news and national/state origins. In this section, there are many titles that reflect specifically religious sub-disciplines of clearly secular professions: i.e., law, archaeology, history, philosophy; and the opposite also occurs, where in the “Psychology,” “Philosophy,” “Law” and “Archaeology” sections for the most part contain works of clearly secular origins, yet at the same time those works often publish articles with information directly related to Pastoral Care issues. See also the Chaplaincy Bibliography for a select and extensive list of volumes pertinent to Chaplaincy.

Furthermore, the breadth of sections, the diversity of periodicals and shear number involved indicates the broad spectrum of the “Religion” profession. Understood is the fact that most of the persons are in fact adherents to a religion, even though they have “not” devoted them to the “Religion” profession and have devoted their life’s work to any one of the professions in one of the periodical sections. Yet for those in the “Religion” profession, the work most every science that has to do with human interaction, organization and information management is informative – either directly or indirectly – for that person in the “Religion” profession to excel and more efficiently do the tasks his or her calling has laid upon them.

Total to date

These total to 3,936 titles, minus the few hundred that were duplicated in two sections, and the total number is around 3,700 titles of periodicals that have either a direct or indirect bearing upon a Professional Chaplain or Minister. The nature of the above periodical-serials archive is nearly comprehensive as of December 2001, bearing in mind the following exceptions:

  1. The Library of Congress (LOC) collection was dated 1982, which undoubtedly means that some of its titles have gone out of circulation. It is also the most limited on information, containing only the bare titles. Assuredly, most of the titles have been collected in some archive somewhere, whether whether currently out of circulation or not; only an individual search for each one would yield the full story.

  2. For the most part, the periodical archive does not include several other kinds of government publications from individual states and nations, not the least of which is the United States: most especially, the various agencies and bureaus that collect and report on vital/health statistics, demographics and census data and the myriad interpretations that are ever drawn from such data. Every state in the US and the US itself and most other states in every nation has bureaus/agencies making regular reports and analyses of such data. And of course, that data is the fodder of much trend analysis.

  3. Nor does the periodical archive include the lesser and local newsletters, sermon subscription services and various single religious entities that publish local, state and even national religious news. This would include a host of other national or multi-state issues that never networked with databases like world class libraries like Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Forth Worth, Texas Christian University’s Bright Divinity School, Southern Methodist University’s Perkins School of Theology or Ulrich’s massive worldwide collection.

  4. Nor does the periodical archive include much of what I would call “super” reports of multi-national organizations that would include occasional reports from the United Nations, Amnesty International, Red Cross and their commissions that report on various states of affairs of many kinds of issues religious-social-ethnic on such broad band topics as religious freedom, human rights, the death penalty, prison, natural disasters and persecution.

  5. Nor does the archive contain most of the law/legal journals, just a select few of the major ones that were flagged under search categories of “religion,” “faith” and etc. These were placed in the “Law...” section--obviously.

  6. Nor does the archive include the myriad of magazines whose flagship examples include Newsweek, Time, US News & World Report that do frequently report on and often carry technical articles about religion, religious history, current religious affairs, bio’s and often how the religious and secular are interpreting each other. These significant high caliber articles are often trend setting in themselves, if not controversy sparking, yet often become dated quick and have roots in several journal articles or become the catalyst for a more extended and researched journal article.

  7. In the “Major Philosophical, Historical & Secular Titles” section, many other categories could have been stationed or even sub-categories. Perhaps the greatest number of judgement calls went into the selection of these as informative on quality pastoral care and on religious affairs. “Chaplains” and “Religion” of necessity deal with the vital issues of life and personal liberty and the problems of life in general that foster or complicate religious life. Some of the titles here are the major medical and philosophical journals that almost always have articles that deal with Life, Faith, Coping, Distress, Death issues in addition to their regular more “specialty” related articles.

  8. In the Ulrich collection (designated by "(Ulrich)"), the titles are marked “active” and “ceased” as of 2001 and so placed. Yet some of the Ulrich titles have no designator, which means response forms or inquiries on the title’s status have not been reported as of December 2001.

  9. Furthermore, as mentioned about the Ulrich searches, we could only access the first 500 in each category. As SWBTS and LOC collections undoubtedly contained first rate collections, most of 7,851 significant titles in the “theology” search in the Ulrich collection were probably represented in the SWBTS collection too. To have been a truly “comprehensive” work, it would have been nice to have had access to all of the titles in all of the search categories beyond the first 500.

  10. Clearly, with the several thousand titles listed and categorized, there were some guesses made based solely upon the “title” as to where each title needed to be placed. There may be better categories and some titles may actually fit better in another than where they where placed. Feel free to suggest.

Through it all, in this list is presented a rather up to date and near comprehensive listing of the works relevant to Chaplaincy and the Profession of Religion. Certainly, most of significant works are here, and it is a good start.

VISION: wouldn’t it be nice if the list could be refined with full validation and with full access to all of Ulrich’s database, complete internet hyperlinks to each site where possible. What a “Pastoral” resource that would be.
