Papers in Refereed Journals

A full updated list is also available on ORCID. In addition to that, I try to make all my papers available in arXiv. These preprints are updated to the last version after the comments of the referees, just before sending to the publishing office. If you read the arXiv preprints, these will usually vary very little contentwise when compared to the article in print.
