This publications list contains my downloadable articles. For a full list of my publications, see my Curriculum Vitae. Most of these are available in PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader. Unpublished papers are posted on a separate non-public page; email me if you want access. If ASU had an institutional repository for reprints I wouldn't have to have a page like this, but until we join the information age and catch up to Open Access standards this page will have to do. See my publishing blog entries on Open Access.
