Journal Articles: Non-Peer-Reviewed Items

This section comprises material, published in journals, that did not undergo peer review.

Journal titles are followed by their ISSN(s), then by their inclusion in either or both the Clarivate Analytics Web of Science and the Scopus databases (abbreviated as WoS and Sc respectively), and/or their defunct status, via superscripted indicators.
