The Australian journal Papers: Explorations into Children’s Literature has been in operation since 1990. It has now become an open-access, online journal, available through its own website. We intend to gradually upload past issues in the Archives section of the website. Papers is a peer-refereed journal which accepts scholarly submissions on any aspect of children’s literature. In the Australian ‘Excellence in Research’ (ERA) system it is classified as an A journal (that is, a journal of very high quality, with an editorial board consisting of well-known researchers).
