The journals are

In the menue to the left, under Publications, I have organized my publications under labels for some of the most frequent fields that I have worked in. Not all publications relevant to a particular category have been included in these lists - just the ones I think are the most important ones.
If you really want a full picture of all my publications, go to the Complete List of Publications, where I have disclosed everything, year-by-year.
