Recent Graduate Publications P – Z

imagesCAAFP5MFWhy publish?

Publication of research papers in peer-reviewed journals is the most widely used means of disseminating ideas and results in the majority of the sub-disciplinary fields in which we specialize.  The number and quality of publications are two widely used criteria in determining employment and professional advancement.  We give our students an advantage in the job market and a valuable professional skill by working with them to learn to be successful authors of journal articles before, as well as after, their graduation.

 These are the publications in 2012 and 2013 (to date) written by our graduate students (bold type and underlined) based upon research carried out during their time in graduate school.  Papers are listed alphabetically by the highest ordered student author.
