One thought on “Publications

  1. Julian Newman

    Hi – two very small corrections to bibliographic information:
    Your “What are Data About?” is published in “Computer Simulations and the Changing Face of Experimentation” published by Cambridge Scholars Publications. In the printed book (a very useful collection by the way!) the place of publication is given as Newcastle, not Cambridge (I’ve noticed this before, to my surprise, when my daughter had a paper published in another volume by the same publishers; I presume the firm migrated north at some time!); and the other small point is that the names of the editors are in the opposite order from your citation, i.e. Duran & Arnold, not Arnold and Duran.

    Best wishes, Julian Newman
