Now’s your chance! In an effort to broaden participation, I’d like to reserve the papers listed at the end of this post for those who have not yet submitted any data and do not have access to a large personal library. All of these papers are freely downloadable (and I’ve even included links!), and would be a tremendous use for the project. Please remember to download the appropriate spreadsheet, and also please post a comment indicating if you plan on entering or verifying a particular reference so that we don’t have unnecessary duplication of efforts. Check out the How-To Guide as well as the FAQs for answers to most basic questions, such as the basics of data entry. And if you have queries, don’t hesitate to post a comment here or email me.
And don’t worry. . .if you miss out on these papers, or can’t find any other open access papers, or just plain don’t feel like typing numbers into a spreadsheet, there will be plenty of other opportunities to help out with the project. Stay tuned for details.
At this writing, we have 161 verified and 93 unverified entries in the database, submitted by 22 different individuals. Well done!
