The present study was designed to examine the extent to which research articles focusing on Black/African Americans are published in Black and multicultural mental health journals. Study data shows these articles are few in number. Additionally, the number of such articles written by authors with an affiliation to Historical Black Institutions (HBI) and/or United Negro Colleges and Universities Member Institutions (UNCFMI) were examined. It was found that very few scholars publishing articles of this type were affiliated with HBI, while no UNCFMI scholars published articles in these journals. A content analysis of four journals published between 1988 and 1992, selected as representative of Black and multicultural journals, showed that the four journals included articles on Black/African Americans to varying degrees. Implications for counselors, study limitations and directions for future research conclude this study.
