This list includes papers published in other journals that may be of interest to researchers in physics education and to physics teachers interested in making their classrooms more effective. Papers have been selected that focus on high school or college level physics teaching, though we may occasionally include papers described work with younger students if they seem relevant. This list includes papers published with calendar dates of 1999. (papers selected by E. F. Redish)
