Citations Part 5  will give you a list of all paper citations, with annotations, for the topic category Monitoring instruments, Laboratory measurements, and Test methods. This MSW file can be word-searched for authors and topics.  Direct hyperlinks to accessible individual papers are also shown in displays of the citations.


Note: In contrast with other parts of the Anthology, an All Papers Part 5 file has not been included because the total file size would exceed 40 MB - impractical to download and scroll for most users.  Individual papers are accessible via the hyperlinks shown below.


To download separately the individual papers, listed below:

The pdf files of each individual paper (bit map, not searchable) are generally large, as indicated in the [xx MB] accompanying the filename abbreviation (which is the hyperlink) and the complete paper  title in the following chronological list. Knowing which paper is of interest to you, as determined by your word search or by a seemingly interesting title, you can go directly to that one paper.  To speed-up your search, each pdf file includes thumbnails and bookmarks palettes.  The bookmarks show the section headings and the figure/table numbers corresponding to the figure captions or table titles that are included in the Text Part 5 file.
