Published Academic Papers in English
Most articles are (also) published on Social Sciences Research Network (see links next to the references below). We, at the Computer Lab, follow the open-access, free knowledge approach to research. Because I am not completely insane, I realize that I need to publish in established journals, so that is also done. If the links to papers are not below, contact me and I'll try to acommodate. Note that my doctoral Thesis is freely available from 3rd of April 2013 on as a part of The Exeter Research and Institutional Content archive (ERIC).
