Selected Publications

Downloadable copies of my publications on communication & technology are available below. I prefer to publish in open access (OA) journals, so full versions of many articles are freely available. Where copyright restrictions of a journal prohibits my posting a final PDF I include link to the final version (behind a “paywall”) and a pre-edited draft (where available). If you have difficulty accessing any documents on this page please reach out to me on Twitter or email me at: me AT aschrock d.o.t. com.

Green text = open access to final version (true OA).
Blue text = open access draft (pre-publication – often the best I can post on a public site).
Red text = paywall on journal site.
