The following listing includes mostly academic journal publications. When it comes to depth and value, academic publications are a top resource for any information gathering quest. This information comes with certain caveats. For example, it is not as current as other publications on the Internet, and there is a good reason for it: The peer-review process takes a significant amount of time, especially when revisions to the articles are required before they can get published. Another possible disadvantage is that most of them include heavy disciplinary language, language for other researchers, and they are not prepared for public consumption.
