Research publications using the ESC

As the terms of use points out, we ask users of the corpus to let us know about publications (journal articles, books, or chapters in edited collections) that make use of the ESC. This is optional, but very useful, as it allows us to maintain a “master bibliography” – the list below has been generated automatically from the references that have been submitted to date.

(There are no entries in the bibliography yet.)

Relevant conference papers & public talks

Coming soon!
