Games Studies Bibliography Now Complete

Image of booksThe move of the Digiplay digital games research bibliography to this new Digiplay site is now finished and online!

We've gone through every gaming reference whether it be a journal paper, chapter of conference presentation and checked it, removed duplicates, updates abstracts and added URLs to the full paper. This means that we now list a total of 1933 citations in our games bibliography database.

The bibliography contains references across a whole range of disciplines including sociology, psychology, computer science, education, literary studies, health sciences, economics, media studies, and law and on and on....

The bibliography can be accessed for free by all games researchers but registered users of the Digiplay site have things even better in that they can:

  • Search/filter the bibliography to find just the article you are looking for. You can search the computer games research bibliography by author, year, keyword or publication type.
  • Export references from the video games bibliography to a format suitable for your own work. Options currently include tagged and XML for Endnote users and BibTex for the rest of the world.
  • Post comments to discuss the paper or alert fellow researchers to other resources.
  • Add their own references using the 'create content' -> 'biblio' option in the block on the left.

You can keep up to date with all the new additions to the bibliography by subscribing to our RSS feed of new refernces, adding it to your Firefox live bookmarks or even adding the feed to your own site.
