What is the scope of scholars and scholarly work that are included in this database?

Any Black scholar engaged in academic work is welcome to be a part of this database. For scholarly work, we are focused on the pieces that carry the most capital on an academic Curriculum Vitae: peer-reviewed articles, books, case studies, or conference proceedings. Most commonly, these items will be associated with a DOI or PMID number. Non-peer reviewed conference abstracts are excluded (they are just too numerous and do not carry CV weight). We will accept self-submissions of other kinds of non-peer-reviewed work that lack a DOI number on a case-by-case basis, such as those in the creative arts fields. Please see our Submission Requirements page for more information.
