The present investigation attempts to find out the present status quo by studying the strength and weakness of websites of online electronic journals for children and adolescents. By comparing them, it intends to provide a model for optimal use and more pragmatic design. Both library and evaluative research methods were employed. The latter was carried out using descriptive and inferential statistics. An evaluation form based on five factors of content, visual design structure, technical structure and copyright and operational indicators was used as the primary data collection instruments. Each in turn were composed of 62 sub-indicators. SPSS statistical software was used. The study found that the current fourteen journal websites lack the required effectiveness, ranging from unsuitable to totally inappropriate. The findings further indicated that the website designers for children and adolescent magazines do not pay the necessary attention to website design based on the aforementioned five factors.
