Funding permitting, Dr Leanda will always opt for journal articles to be open-access as she believes it is currently the most equitable publishing process. At present, open-access is the only means of allowing tax-payers access to science funded using tax-payer money. Please use the links provided below to view the open-access journal articles. If you would like to access one of the other journal articles that have pay-walls, please contact Dr. Leanda and she will be over-joyed to send you a copy via email.
