Discovering a ‘good read’: Pathways to reading for Australian teens

Breaking news (July 2019) – the next phase of our research has received funding through the ARC’s Linkage Projects scheme.

The scheme is designed to support research of national benefit linked to government, industry and professional partners.

Our partners include Queensland University of Technology, University of Canterbury (Christchurch), the Australian Copyright Agency, the Australian Booksellers Association, the Australian Publishers Association, the Australian Library and Information Association, and the School Library Association of Victoria.

During the next few years we will map the network of influences that shape young people’s reading practices, including digital and other social contexts.

Working with our expert partners in the book, library and education industries, we will use our findings to develop strategies for empowering young Australians to read more.
