The fourth edition brings the bibliography up to June 2009. The authors searched through most of the newspaper chess columns in Australia and New Zealand to try and bring forward as much detail on chess as possible. Numbers around brackets at the end of each item are the item number the three booklets published between 1978 and 1989 by van Manen. Numbers in the square brackets are the item number in the third edition. With the advent of digital publications and the World Wide Web, there is now a blurring of the definition of literature. In this book, the authors treated videos, DVDs, Cd-Roms and digital publications in the same way as traditional printed literature. The index includes publication titles, and authors, but newspaper titles are not included as they appear in alphabetical order in Part 3.
