We are pleased to announce a new digital database of children and youth scholarship. We also seek recommendations regarding additional citations from section members.
The database is hosted by Mendeley, a free service that you can access at: Mendeley Group: Sociology of Childhood.
Although you do not have to be a member of Mendeley to view the annotated list of texts, membership allows you to utilize the service as a citation management tool. Moreover, groups like Mendeley can be used collaboratively, rendering this bibliography as a living document that can be edited and expanded over time. It is an effective management tool for retaining classic texts, promoting members' new publications, and ensuring that young scholars have a credible resource tool on the sociology of children and youth.
I seek your assistance with the following:
1) Although I have established the bibliography with an extensive number of citations (note that editing the citations to check for data accuracy is currently underway), I seek recommendations from experienced section members regarding key texts in the sociology of children and youth. Please email me (email@example.com) the names of authors and publication titles that you believe should be included in this bibliography. I look forward to adding your suggestions.
2) I encourage you to bookmark or -- better yet -- join the Mendeley Sociology of Childhood group. As noted above, Mendeley is free and provides another valuable resource for academic work. If you run into any issues with the website, please contact me for assistance.
Thanks again! I look forward to adding your suggested titles to the bibliography.
