        List Organization

        The list below is organized based on accessibility, document type, and year of publication (newest to oldest):

        Access
        Open Access: Anyone can access and read the document for free.

        Paid Access: A fee or subscription is required to view the document.
             Free access to a research article in a peer-reviewed journal or a conference presentation can be obtained by directly emailing one of the authors (addresses are listed on the freely accessible abstract page for the document). The authors are legally permitted to share copies of their research papers and it is helpful if you give them time to respond, since they may be busy conducting research or other work.

        Document Types
        Conference Presentation
             This document type is written by either trained scientists, scientists-in-training, or other professionals who have presented a project, research study, evaluation, or review of other studies at a conference. The expected audience is other professionals in the field, so the language may contain some technical jargon, but is often easy to understand.

        Report
             This document type is written by either newcomers or professionals presenting information about a plan, project, or evaluation and often including recommendations for future actions. The expected audience is the organization that commissioned the work and/or the general public, so the language is often very easy to understand.

        Research Article – Peer-reviewed Journal
             This document type is written by trained scientists who conduct real world or academic research that is recorded in professional journals. The research article is reviewed and vetted by peers in the author’s field of study before publication. The expected audience is other experts in the field, so the language is often very technical.

        Research Report – Doctoral Dissertation or Master’s Thesis
             This document type is written by scientists-in-training who conduct real-world or academic research as part of their education requirements. The research report is reviewed and vetted by mentors and faculty in the author’s field of study as the final step before earning a master’s degree or doctoral degree. The expected audience is other academic researchers, so the language is often very technical.
