Bibliography collections and Thematic paths

The Childhood and Adolescence Bibliographic Review is a quarterly review of bibliographic information on the themes of childhood and adolescence. The journal was founded in 2000 thanks to the collaboration between the Istituto degli Innocenti of Florence, the National Centre and the Regional Documentation Centre for Children and Adolescents of the Region of Tuscany.

The Review is aimed at the professional updating of operators and the dissemination of knowledge among scholars and administrators dealing with policies and services for children and adolescents. Each issue presents a selection of recent bibliographic production (monographs, journal articles and grey literature produced by organizations and associations) at national and international level. A section of the journal, Our Ancestors, is dedicated to publications from the past that still have an interest for the scientific community.

Bibliographic reports are sorted according to the Childhood and Adolescence Classification Scheme, indexed following the Guide to Indexing by Subject, produced by GRIS (Research Group on Indexing by Subject) of the AIB  (Italian Libraries Association) and accompanied by abstracts. The documents reported are part of the heritage of the Innocenti Library.

Each issue of the Review has a supplement consisting of a Thematic Reading Path composed of a bibliography and a  filmography edited by experts.

From 2013 the journal has been in digital format, easy to navigate, with internal hyperlinks and links to the web.
