Since most articles in Victorian periodicals were anonymous or pseudonymous, Wellesley Index to Victorian Periodicals provides an important service for Victorian scholars. Wellesley is an index to the authorship of articles, and a bibliography of articles written by each contributor, and using each pseudonym. Citations of evidence are provided to support attributions of authorship, along with brief biographical and vocational details. 45 important monthly and quarterly titles are included, covering the period from the beginning of the Westminster Review in 1824 to the end of the century. The exception to this is the Edinburgh Review, which is indexed from first issue, in 1802. Wellesley does not index poetry

The Wellesley Index provides seamless linking between article records, contributor and pseudonym records, and periodical introductions, and includes links to article full text for selected titles in Periodicals Archive Online and British Periodicals. It is also available through ProQuest's C-19: The Nineteenth Century Index where it can be crossed searched with 10 other major indexes of 19th century content.
