Peer-reviewed Publications

Peer-reviewed publications are the main way scientists provide the technical details of their research for other scientists to build upon. These are publised in scientific journals, which send them to experts (peers) to review and comment on. Once they are approved through the peer review process, the papers are published in the journal, which sometimes requires a subscription or payment to access. Pre-publication versions (the links beginning with arXiv) are free for anyone to read. When available, I've linked to both.
