PDF Files of Collected Works of Jeffrey R. Zorn

 

 

This page provides links to PDF file versions of all my published academic writings as of August 2013. They are "republished" here with the expressed permission of the original publishers. I wish to thank them all for allowing me to reproduce them here. Because of copyright permissions I cannot post some of them here. However, i do have PDFs of everything, so if you need one of those, please contact me directly. I hope that these files will provide convenient access to my various scholarly contributions scattered across a dozen publications over 25+ years. Please contact me if you have any troubles. To view the files you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader

Because many of these article are illustrated I scanned them at a fairly high resolution for those who may want to print the files. I have indicated the size of each file in red in either KB or MB.
