IV. Papers in preparation or in the drawer
The following are drafts at various stages of preparation. Apologies if some of the titles come across as a bit flippant - I usually finalise the title only after the last draft is finished. On some of them, marked by an asterisk (*), there is hardly any progress due to time limitations. They all await only figures, references, and editing to cross the finishing line. In exchange for help with that I will put you as a coauthor. If you are interested in such an easy coauthorship on any of those manuscripts please let me know.
