Abstract


This research deals with the status of children’s journalism in the Arab world in the light of the information revolution, the obstacles they face, and the factors affecting its knowledge role. The research aims to describe and analyze the knowledge role of Arabic children’s magazines through the analysis of knowledge content provided by a sample of these magazines. The research revealed the lack of a clear concept of children journalism in the Arab literature. It also stressed the need to extend the concept of the children journalism to include all new types of media dealing with children. It also revealed a number of features that distinguish children journalism in the Arab world and affect its knowledge role. These features include the governmental nature of the children journalism, the limited market in which they operate seasonality of the market, and the fierce competition it faces from other media.
