Note regarding replicability of published results: whenever I am the first author of a publication and the analysis was conducted using R, I try to make the data and analysis available in a so-called paper package. If a paper package is available, this is indicated by <<PaperPackage>>. In all other cases, please contact me, and I'm happy to send you the data and scripts (e.g., in Python, Perl, or Matlab) used during my analysis. If you use the data in your own work, please cite the original publication.
