Research

My main reason for compiling this list is because oftentimes good information posted on various websites oftentimes becomes lost due to website closures. This is just a repository of files I feel contain invaluable information that will help you gain a better understanding on important issues.

NOTE: Unless otherwise stated, all documents are NOT authored by this website or any of its contributors. All credits go to the respected authors of these documents.

This page will be constantly updated, so check back often.

The following links are all in .pdf format.
