This list is not all-inclusive; there are additional critics and additional publications. Should you wish to research a critic not on the list, please clear the critic with me.A number of people have complained that they had to “subscribe” or “pay” for copies of online articles. In some cases that may be so, although I have found that:I can usually find downloadable articles at no charge. Some online subscriptions are free, especially to students. Most of these newspapers and magazines are available for free at the USF Library, or any public library……be serendipitous!!!!!Most of these newspapers and magazines are available for purchase at local newsstands, Barnes & Noble, Borders, etc……..again, be serendipitous!!!!!
