Research papers by Valentine Cawley and Ainan Celeste Cawley.
Over the past year or so, we have published a number of research papers. Two of them were written with my son, Ainan. The others are solo efforts, by me. Now, I have decided to put some links here, to them, since it has become clear that some readers are curious about what I am doing…and others are unaware of what I am doing!
Philosophically, I believe that research papers should be available for all to read free of charge (Open Access), thus I always try to seek Open Access means of distribution. All papers below are freely available to read on Open Access, online. Where appropriate and possible, some of the papers (whose copyright in all but one case, remains with me) are also to be submitted to traditional, not necessarily Open Access, outlets. This will not affect their online availability.
I have a number of papers under submission, at the moment – so the ones below do not represent the entire output for the past year. They are simply the ones that have been published in the past year or so.
I shall add other links to this page, for other papers, as and when they become available, online.
