ADC_Keywords: Supernovae ; Magnitudes, absolute ; Redshifts Abstract: We conducted an optical CCD search for supernovae in a sample of 142 bright [m(B)≤16mag], nearby (z≤0.03) starburst galaxies over the period 1988 December to 1991 June, to a limiting R-band magnitude of 18. Five supernovae were found, in all cases outside the host galaxy's nucleus. We determine supernova rates (in supernova units or SNU) in the extranuclear regions to be 0.7h2SNU for Type Ia, 0.7h2SNU for Type Ib/c, and 0.6h2SNU for Type II, with large uncertainties but upper limits of 2.2h2, 2.5h2, and 1.7h2SNU, respectively. These rates are similar to those measured in "normal" galaxies. We found no evidence for a supernova-induced brightening in any galactic nucleus and, with a few reasonable assumptions, can place upper limits of 9h2, 12h2, and 7h2SNU on the rates of unobscured supernovae Types Ia, Ib/c, and II, respectively, inside the nuclei.
