Document topics are arranged alphabetically within each category. If multiple versions of a document exist, they are listed in reverse chronological order.

  2. Citations are included for all documents.  When electronic access for an article is available as an “open access” document, the citation will be linked to that resource.  Documents that are not open access may require a subscription to the publishing journal or one-time payment to the publisher in order to gain access.
