AFFILIA was originally published by The Feminist Press at The City University of New York, but has been published by Sage Publications in Newbury Park since Spring (Volume 3, number 1) of 1988. Beatrice Saunders was the journal’s Founding Editor. Subsequent editors-in-chief have been Betty Sancier, Carol Meyer, Emma Gross, and Miriam Dinerman.

The collection comprises three series: Administrative records, Accepted manuscripts and Rejected manuscripts.

The editorial files were received by the Social Welfare History Archives as a gift from Beatrice Saunders and Betty Sancier, as authorized by the Affilia Editorial Board, beginning in June 1991. Subsequent editors Carol Meyer, Emma Gross, and Miriam Dinerman have sent additional materials at regular intervals since then.
