Ethnic NewsWatch contains full-text articles from more than 200 American ethnic, minority and native publications. 

There is no other periodical resource which so thoroughly covers ethnic studies as a whole and which presents unique ethnic presses and publications.

Ethnic NewsWatch comprehensively covers these ethnic categories:
  • African American/Caribbean/African
  • Arab/Middle Eastern
  • Asian/Pacific Islander
  • European/Eastern European
  • Hispanic
  • Jewish
  • Native People

A sampling of titles includes Kurdish Life, Minority Business Entrepreneur, Asian Week, Jewish Exponent, Seminole Tribune, Appalachian Heritage, Irish Voice, Chinese America, Islamic Horizons, The Filipino Express, Hmong Times, and Black Masks. A majority of this content is exclusive to the resource and is not available in any other database.

Another unique feature is the availability of Spanish language content. Of the more than 2.5 million articles contained in the collection, nearly a quarter are presented in Spanish, making Ethnic NewsWatch a useful bilingual resource of current periodicals.
