The research group is organisationally affiliated with the Department of Nordic and Media Studies at the University of Agder. It is intended as a place to develop shared research projects, as well as a forum for discussion of individual research projects. The primary material, with respect to literature, is printed texts for young readers. However, digital texts are also of interest to the group from a research perspective, in addition to various forms of communication and use of literature, especially in schools. 

The group cooperates with children’s literature scholars from other universities in a variety of projects. Research is mainly conducted in two fields: The study of literary texts and the study of literature didactics.
Several anthologies (in Norwegian) from recent years are associated with the group:
