Key IDEAS Citations (Updated March 2011)

All links will open in a new window. Many of these links are articles from scientific journals that can be viewed for free by computers on the UCSB campus and other college campuses (the journals are set to allow free access from computers with IP addresses identifying them as being located at universities that have purchased subscriptions to those journals). Some of these articles are quite advanced and technical, but they also tend to be very accurate sources of information.
