  • The Monad.Reader is an electronic magazine about all things Haskell. It is less formal than journal, but more enduring than a wiki-page or blog post. There have been a wide variety of articles, including: exciting code fragments, intriguing puzzles, book reviews, tutorials, and even half-baked research ideas.
  • Practice of Functional Programming is a Russian electronic magazine devoted to promoting functional programming, with both theoretical and explanatory articles as well as practical ones (FP success stories). Much of the material is often related to Haskell.

Practical Foundations of Mathematics
Paul Taylor. Cambridge University Press, ISBN: 0-521-63107-6, xii+576 pages, September 2000.
Toposes, Triples and Theories
Michael Barr and Charles Wells. The revised version of their formerly Springer Verlag published book is online for free download. Note that they use the name triple instead of monad.
Categories and Computer Science
R. F. C. Walters. Cambridge Computer Science Texts, 1991, 176 pages. ISBN 0-52141-997-2 (USD $95.00 (hardcover), USD $34.99 (paperback)).
Here, Category Theory is developed in a straightforward way, and is enriched with many examples from computer science.
Where do I begin? A problem solving approach to teaching functional programming
Simon Thompson, First International Conference on Declarative Programming Languages in Education
Many students take easily to functional programming whilst others experience difficulties of one sort or another. The work reported here is the result of attempts to advise students on how to use problem solving ideas to help them design as develop programs.
