Context

Because my work often spans multiple disciplines, I publish in a variety of venues with different norms and conventions. In addition to each publication’s citation information, which will include links to a pdf version when possible, I have attached an assortment of informative icons (idea credit: Emily Dolson). The iconography table gives each icon and their meaning. Icons to the left of a publication’s citation information specify the venue where the work was published. Icons below a publication’s citation information specify other information.
