Professional Directories

The past four decades have witnessed the growth of national, international, and local professional associations whereby scholars of a particular field voluntarily get together to foster their knowledge of the field: They strive to promote scholarship and to broaden their activities by organising seminars, conferences and workshops, undertaking research projects, bulletins, publishing journals, newsletters, seminar proceedings, monographs and project reports. These associations publish their membership directories which have proved to be very useful information sources to locate the talented scholars in various disciplines.
