* The copyright laws carefully circumscribe how one gets hold of journal articles from mainstream publishers. In particular, one needs to be a member of a University or purchase a subscription to get most of the material cited here. These laws protect the ability of the companies to exist as a mediator between authors and audiences, and the publishing companies manage a strong peer-review system that ensures high-quality publications. In so far as it is possible, I have cited Working Papers and open-access materials to enable your access. Any questions? Just write me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
