Annual Bibliography of Studies in Australian Literature: 2006

Article excerpt

This is the forty-fourth annual bibliography to be published in Australian Literary Studies. Primarily devoted to substantial commentaries useful to criticism and scholarship, the series aims to provide as complete a listing as possible of books and articles on Australian literature. It also lists selectively material in the Australian studies area, and the more important reviews and introductions, studies of Australian language, and new books (with reviews of them) by contemporary writers whose work has attracted substantial discussion.

The newspaper sources for the selection of reviews are restricted to the weekend issues of the Sydney Morning Herald, the Age and the Australian. Feature articles on authors and interviews from newspaper sources are not listed. Coverage of overseas reviews is restricted by accessibility. Some items omitted from previous annual bibliographies are included with the year given. For material outside the scope of the ALS 'Annual Bibliography', researchers are advised to consult the new database AustLit: The Resource for Australian Literature (). Electronic journals are not indexed both because of the volatility of these publications and the ease of access to them through internet search; however, a list of electronic journals which have come to our notice is provided in the General section.

Some authors are included for the first time in the Individual Authors section. Retrospective material on these authors will be added in the next updated edition of the ALS Guide to Australian Writers.

The bibliography draws on material from a variety of sources, including the University of Queensland's collections, the Australian National Bibliography, the MLA bibliography, AustLit: The Resource for Australian Literature, and the annual bibliography in Antipodes for criticism published in North America. The compilers would like to thank the staff of the Fryer Library, University of Queensland, for their assistance, particularly in providing access to its collection. Our special thanks to Marianne Ehrhardt for careful proofreading and expert advice.
