THE KIPLING JOURNAL INDEX |
| Introductory |
The Kipling Journal has been, and continues to be, the most important single forum for the exchange of ideas between Kipling scholars and enthusiasts around the world. Since its inception in 1927, there have been over 300 quarterly editions.
Because of its great value as a resource, John Morgan of Harrow, assisted by his wife Marian, has undertaken the massive task of creating an Index of the Journal.
|The Index has recently been extensively revised and integrated. It enables one to track down articles and contributions on particular subjects or by particular authors, and to follow this up in one of the various libraries which hold sets of the Journal back-numbers. It is available on-line on this site
The on-line Indexes are updated quarterly, to include references to the latest number of each Journal shortly after publication.
|Searching the Index on line |
The Index is available in two parts, a MAIN sequence of Headings/Titles/Sources etc, and a separate NAME sequence of Authors/Editors/Reviewers etc, which supplements the MAIN index.
The On-line Search version is based on the MAIN Index, and can be searched by Subject, Author, or Number.
We have also made the full MAIN and NAME sequences available on-line for browsing on-line, or downloading as HTML files, for printing or viewing off-line.
The full MAIN Index can also be viewed by NUMBER, providing a list of the contents of the Journal from 1927, in date order.
These upper-case titles may be a complete work or a part of a collected work. In the latter case, the 'initial letter title' of the collected work will follow in brackets, thus: MRS BATHURST (T&D) ...

|- Kipling Journal|
|- Kipling Society|
|- Book titles with Kipling as the initial word|
|- Articles where title inversion is not practical|
However, the unavoidable extensive listings under 'Kipling' have been split into several sequences by the program, those sequences determined by the punctuation. Thus, in order:
|- Kipling [space]||Kipling appendix|
|- Kipling ['s]||Kipling's Japan|
|- Kipling [comma]||Kipling, Auden & Co|
|- Kipling [colon]||Kipling: incidence of a name|
C = Correspondence
C1 = First independent mention
C2 = Second independent mention
C + R = Correspondence with reply
CR = Correspondence reply
When space is available, relevant correspondence and/or reply/replies may be indexed on the same line as the main heading of the entry, thus:
RECANTATION (YBv). Who was 'Lyde' R 102/16 (3 replies).
Our thanks are due to Dr Noel Thompson for creating a Windows version in Microsoft Excel, for porting to the web.
