The archive aims to cover comprehensively English-language publications since 1980.  Papers and books from previous years are being added in order to provide good coverage from the beginnings of MT in the 1950s to 1980. (See list of recent additions.) For information about the archive, its coverage, its arrangement, copyright, citation, etc., see the introduction. The full texts of the great majority of publications are located on this website; however, the archive also lists a few publications not available for copyright reasons.
