Publications 1990 to present (most recent first)
Under new 'open access' rules, many publications can be viewed without restriction through PubMedCentral (PMC) (the specific link is attached when available: because artlcles are rapidly being added to PMC, these pages will not have all the links that exist today, so try searching yourself if I have not included a link). Alternatively, use the DOI link when present. By permission of the publishers, some pdf files can be downloaded from our server. If you are denied permission it means that the article is only available to local users, but we can often supply a paper or electronic copy on request.
