The PMAF References and Reading List

One of the drawbacks of working with a blog format is that there is less emphasis on references and in-text citations because the audience is not expected to be an academically inclined. I don’t mind making things easier on the eyes of audiences by foregoing in-text citations, however, I do want to encourage interested readers to find and read the sources.
