Hi Jessie,
I have an article about SignWriting under review at an academic
journal - perhaps it will make it through the review process in time
to be something you can cite as "in press". I also want to note that I
use SSW for a transcript in a web supplement to an academic article
(Metasemiotic Regimentation in the Standardization of Nepali Sign
Language, The Journal of Linguistic Anthropology 18:2, 2008). Finally,
there is some discussion of SSW in my Ph.D. dissertation
(Standardization Beyond Form: Ideologies, Institutions, and the
Semiotics of Nepali Sign Language, 2008). Joe Martin has very good
discussions of SSW in his B.A. and M.A. thesis  - Cecilia Flood as
well - it is quite common to cite dissertations and theses in academic
work, so perhaps they will suit the needs of your class.
SSW also gets brief mention in several published works - one that
comes to mind offhand is "Signs of Their Times" by Senghas and
Monaghan in the Annual Review of Anthropology.
Hope this helps!
Best,
Erika

They are linked to peer reviewed journals at University sites.  They don't originate with signwriting.org, but are academically produced everywhere from Norway to Brazil. Each of these publications have their own schedule.

We have been assigned a research project, and need to find academic and professional articles that have been published about our topic, in this case Valerie Sutton and SignWriting. I am having trouble because the only sources I can find are Wikipedia andsignwriting.org. I need to find books or articles that have been published. I have read almost everything on signwriting.org, but I cannot use this as a source for my project.
