Researching children's literature

Journals

One of the easiest ways to find literature on the text you're looking at is to search within the online pages of academic journals rather than through Summon. Two of my favourites are underneath. If you struggle to get an article please ask me (Laura), I may be able to get it for you or I may already have it electronically! My intention is to post a list of references for each text on here each week. It won't be exhaustive, I will just add articles I have come across in the past or know by experience or repute to be of good quality and applicable to the assignments.

Tip: review articles in the field of children's literature can be more useful than in other disciplines!
