Help me here. Why do you make this list. Couldn’t one just go to the journal to see what articles are available. Your links, afterall, are of no help for those of us not having access to the articles — in fact , they are sort of a tease.

The Books and Article Reviews are just stuff from December, correct? Those links we can use – and indeed I shall read one, thank you.

BTW, How do I get my avatar to show on the comment below?

1) I find that these kinds of lists provide an interesting snapshot of current discussions, issues, controversies, etc.

2)Some of us do have access to those journals. If there is a university in your area you can peruse their journal sections. I can access many of these online through my university library log-in.

3) Luke is a self-admitted compulsive list-maker.

@ Sven & Luke: got it. Thanx

Yeah, in most cases you can just walk into a university library, pull up this page, click the links, and you’ll immediately pull up the PDF of the article, which you can put on a flash drive or email to yourself.
