Citing Us

You can cite REPAD in any professional manner you like, subject to the usual editorial constraints/publisher house-style, but as the website name is rather long I suggest citing me (Branden Holmes) as I am the compiler and editor of the online database, and the author of all content unless explicitly credited to another researcher.

NB: Preprints are only included until such time as any peer-reviewed version appears. Those papers with an asterisk ('*') indicate this.
