Academic sources

This page provides a dynamic collection of publically available academic sources and knowledge documents of interest to the Western Limb Project.

Though including a broad spectrum of international sources, it remains relevant to community-industry interaction in the Western Limb region.  The aim is to provide a readily accessible source of academic reference material on good practice, for future and current collaborative research activities.
