The intention of our reading list was to obtain a list of “foundation-knowledge” references that supervisors in different areas would require new starters in their field to read. We would therefore be delighted to add any such references to this list, if you email them to us.


The list of scientific papers currently included, are presented in reverse order showing the newest first. The sections have been split into decades in an attempt to enhance your search. We hope that this section proves useful to your future research. More papers will be posted on to the list when they are submitted.

Literature List:
