She welcomes contributions offlist that are compiled into subsequent postings. Her usual caveats for contributions are:
"1) your definitions of history and disability may exclude some of these articles, and include others;
2) listing here does not necessarily constitute a recommendation of the articles involved; and
3) only English-language tables of contents or abstracts are usually culled (but works in other languages are welcome from contributors)."
