1) List of books, articles, and other published papers.
Only papers and other scholarly works that have been formally accepted without qualification for publication or
presentation, or have actually been published or presented, should be listed in Items a-g below. Publication
refers to both print and digital formats.\
Works under review must be listed separately in Item k.
Works being drafted and not yet submitted should be discussed in the narrative section in number 3 below.

NOTE: The candidate does not have the option to specify a discipline-specific format when using Research in
In cases of multiple authorship for Items 1a - 1e, a narrative description (approximately 50 words) of the
candidateas intellectual contribution is required. Examples of appropriate formats for this information include:
- I designed the experiment (which was carried out by the graduate student co-authors), and wrote the article.
- I identified the patients for the study, administered the drug regimen, reported results to the consortium and reviewed the draft manuscript.
- I completed and wrote the literature review for the paper, shared equally with the co-author in the analysis and interpretation of the data, and reviewed the complete draft manuscript.
Statements such as the following are not acceptable: "All authors contributed equally"; "50% effort." Do not refer to past dossiers for models of how to write the required description, since they occasionally include unacceptable statements such as these.
Candidates may provide the approximate percentage of their contribution in relation to the total intellectual effort involved in the work if the unit or college requires this information. This information is not required by OAA and under no circumstances is it an acceptable substitute for the required narrative description.
For Items 1f - 1j: the above information is not needed unless the unit requires it.

a) Books (other than edited volumes) and monographs

c) Chapters in edited books
