CMPS Online Publications (1996-2007)

From 1996 to 2007, the Centre published an online series of peer-reviewed research papers. These tended to be specialist studies and reports, which aimed to cover more ground than was possible in a standard journal article. Although this series has been discontinued, due to the many other publishing outlets that are now available, papers that were published in the series are still in demand and can be downloaded free of charge in PDF format below.
