We are announcing our new publications with links to full text sources where possible. The list will be updated every six months. The previous six-month list will be below the current list. Some of the files linked below are in Portable Document Format (PDF) so you will need to use Adobe Acrobat Reader to view them. If you don't already have this free software, please download and install the latest version.

If you have any questions or comments, send a message to our library.

Many government agencies, corporations and universities have purchased online full-text access to various journals for their employees or students. We are including links that may allow you online access. When you see linked terms below, this URL will take you to the abstract or table of contents posted by the publisher or other aggregator service, such as BioOne. The abstract page will have a link to the PDF or html full text. If your institution has a subscription, you will be able to click the link and open the full text.

If you would like to search our past publications, visit the Patuxent bibliography (select PWRC_Bibliography). See a full description of the database here. Many of the records include abstracts and/or links to full text.
