Articles/Discussions

SCS posts articles by scientists and other scholars every month from September through December and from February through May. These appear at the beginning of each month. 

Members of SCS can discuss these articles on the SCS Member Forum.  When possible (and this will be announced each month) the authors of these articles will participate in these discussions to the extent their time permits for a week after the article is posted. 

Anyone, whether an SCS member or not, can send in a question for the authors of these articles to smpbarr@gmail.com  The most interesting questions will be forwarded to the authors, and (if they choose to respond) the questions and responses (as well as excerpts from the most interesting Member Forum discussions about an article) will be posted below the article.
