Emeritus Professor Anne Smith (1940-2016), an internationally renowned researcher and child advocate, sadly passed away in Dunedin, New Zealand, on 22 May 2016. Her 40-year academic career was devoted to advancing children's rights, development and well-being in early childhood education, the family and schools, and in the child protection and family justice systems. Anne was the foundation Director of the University of Otago Children's Issues Centre from 1995-2006. She prioritised the ascertainment of children's perspectives during an era when children were all but invisible in social policy, research, and practice. This bibliography, on which she was the lead author, is dedicated to her memory. URL:
