Peer-reviewed Journal Articles

The list of peer-reviewed Journal Articles features articles by BCDSS researchers and visiting scholars published in peer-reviewed journals. Committed to the principles of Open Access, the BCDSS tries to provide free access to a PDF version of every article in the series. Since few of the recent articles are made available to everyone online right now, we offer at least a link to the abstract and the journal itself. Contracts with publishers and database providers entitle many research and higher education institutions to facilitate access to journal articles. Use the library website at your research institution to see which journals are electronically accessible to you. If you are interested in a particular article that is not available here in PDF format, please contact the author. He or she will usually be able to send you the full text, which may differ slightly from the published version.
