How to access articles

All of the articles below can be requested by clicking on the email link that appears next to them (or by emailing larrick@duke.edu).

The titles of most articles below contain a DOI hyperlink. As long as you have access to a database containing the identified article (e.g., through a university or library system), clicking on the titles will take you to a full text copy of the article.

The DOI link on some journal articles takes you to a site that requires a membership login; for those articles, I’ve provided additional hyperlinks  in parentheses next to each article (e.g.,  EBSCO) that do not require membership.

If there is no DOI hyperlink available for a paper, clicking on the title will open an email request for the paper.

Titles of papers under review or in preparation appear in my CV as an unsearchable image.
