Call for submissions
Papers: Explorations into Children's Literature journal is open now for new submissions. We welcome submission of research articles or critical reflections on creative writing and processes that explore creativity, the nature and processes of writing, or investigation of issues in writing for children and young people. Papers is a free, open-access online journal publishing critical research into children’s literature. Papers is fully-refereed and all submissions undergo a double-blind reviewing process by members of the journal’s international reviewing board. While the editors welcome articles on Australasian material, we do not limit Papers to articles only on Australasian works, or by Australasian scholars. Articles might include theoretical perspectives, comparative analysis, discussions of texts of historical interest, bibliographical essays that also provide a scholarly overview of the works listed, or practice-led research engaging with the creative practice of writing for children and young adults. Our ethos is to enhance research, and to support the dissemination of knowledge and the free exchange of ideas. Papers publishes one issue per year. Themed issues are announced through a Call for Papers and may be edited by invited guest editors.
