Book chapter on the evolution of publishing agreements at the University of Michigan Library. Taking as an example an open-access journal with a single editor, this chapter discusses the various configurations of rights agreements used by the University of Michigan Library throughout the evolution of its publishing operation, the advantages of the various models, and the reasons for moving from one to another.
Article examines molecular markers of neuropsychological functioning among elders with and without Alzheimer's disease (AD) and determine the predictive ability of combined molecular markers and select neuropsychological tests in detecting disease presence. This work provides the foundation for the generation of a point‐of‐care device that can be used to screen for AD.

Article explores giant cross-magnetic-field steps which occur as a result of positron-electron collisions. Within a constant magnetic field (e.g., 1 T), a collision between a positron and an electron can result in a correlated drift across the magnetic field for a continuous range of impact parameters. Within this range, drift distances orders of magnitude larger than that associated with like-charge collisions were observed by computer simulation.

This paper from the 2015 Conference on Systems Engineering Research conference proceedings reviews different modeling techniques and uses two converse techniques, i.e. agent-based and event-based modeling, to run a simulation of hypothetical systems collaborating into a system of systems.
