Publications
Here we list publications by the FocuStat participants (essentially inner core participants, but also a few items from our close collaborators), including also those from 2013 of relevance for the 20142018 project. At the end of the list are also links to N.L. Hjort's books and to some of his pre2013 journal articles.
^{Books, journal articles, technical reports, blog posts, pamphlets, fliers, FocuStat Notes, libretti, statistical poems, symposiae proceedings, and yet further names of the publication games. }

Accepted for publication in the Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences (for their special issue related to the scientific legacy of Johan Hjort). [The Hjort time series in question concerns liver quality for the Atlantic cod (skrei, Gadus morhua). Its roots lie with the classic Hjort 1914 publication, then giving liver data for 1880 to 1913, one of the first ever published teleost time series. Various efforts of Kjesbu and coauthors have then led to an extended time series 1859 to 2012, ostensibly the longest series of marine science.]
