The Girl's Own Paper was published by the Religious Tract Society (which later became the Lutterworth Press), from 1880 to 1956. Offering a combination of stories and educational and improving articles, it was highly influential for generations of young British women and girls, and provided an outlet for many female writers.
As an aid to researchers, collectors and others interested in the literature of the period, the Lutterworth Press now hosts The Girl's Own Paper Index, a fully searchable index of all the stories and articles published in the Girl's Own Paper from 1880–1941 (Volumes 1–62). This index was originally compiled by Honor Ward, and the website version was first developed by Tom Ward and hosted by the University of Durham.
The revised online Index is fully searchable and sortable by multiple criteria, including title, author, volume and year of publication. The Non-Fiction Indexes can also be searched and sorted by subject category, and a separate Author Index has been compiled to allow searchers to concentrate on finding stories and articles by specific authors.
