This is a list of full-length papers published in 2016-2018 by BAA Jupiter Section members in the JBAA or in professional journals in ‘pro-am’ collaborations.  They include definitive accounts of classic cycles in the SEB (SEB Fades and Revivals), NEB (NEB expansion events), and NTB (NTBs jet outbreaks/revivals).  Our thanks to the many professional scientists with whom we have been privileged to collaborate. 

The list up to 2017, with summaries, is posted here as a PDF:   JupRefs_update-for-website_2017aug.pdf

(Unfortunately most papers in professional journals are only available to subscribers, but in some cases copies have been posted on ArXiv, as noted.)
