We've had many things written about us over the years – some nice, some nasty, sometimes on news blogs and sometimes in peer-reviewed academic papers. This page provides an index to a selection of our coverage, both critical and flattering, spanning the period 1999 to 2017 (there used to be a lot more, but a decade or so on it has slowly fallen off-line).
