Publications

All of my publications are available for free online (via this website).

You can also find the publications prior to 2018 on the much older site (which I can no longer update, however) http://munk.cis.unimelb.edu.au/~stivalaa/.

Please note: I no longer review for, or submit manuscripts to, journals published by Elsevier.

Google Scholar profile (this is the best source for up-to-date publication and citation information; I was forced to create ORCID and other accounts by journals/employers, but unlike Google Scholar they do not reliably update automatically and it is difficult or impossible to update them manually, so are just a waste of time given that Google Scholar is what most people actually use anyway).

orcid.org/0000-0002-2442-4743 (as per above, a journal requirement but unlike Google Scholar it is not up to date as it is too difficult to bother with - I was also forced to create ResearcherID and Scopus accounts but I am not even going to bother linking to them).

Contact

Please use my gmail address which should appear somewhere on this page (the new Google Sites seems to place it in some arbitrary position instead of right here where it used to be).

Please note that I can no longer access my old University of Melbourne address stivalaa@unimelb.edu.au. Email sent there will be silently lost forever.
