The contents of these pages are my own private project, but are based as much as possible on current academic research. I make no claims that everything is 100% accurate, but the contents are accurate as possible. The contents reflect my own theoretical orientations and empirical methods, and like anything else in social science research, some contents may be open to question, interpretation or debate, or a need for further research. The following disclaimers apply, as adapted from the MediaWiki.org General Disclaimer.

1 No formal peer review

I try to select and highlight reliable versions of information articles. However, the English Wiki is not uniformly peer reviewed; while readers may correct errors or engage in casual review, they have no legal duty to do so and thus all information read here is without any implied warranty of fitness for any purpose or use whatsoever.

None of the authors, contributors, sponsors, administrators, or anyone else connected with English Wiki can be responsible for the appearance of any inaccurate or (what some might find) libelous information or for your use of the information contained in or linked from these web pages.

Please make sure that you understand that the information provided here is being provided freely, and that no kind of agreement or contract is created between you and the owners or users of this site, the owners of the servers upon which it is housed, the individual wiki contributors, administrators, sysops or anyone else who is in any way connected with this project subject to your claims against them directly. You are being granted a limited license to copy anything from this site; it does not create or imply any contractual or extracontractual liability on the part of this wiki or any of its agents, members, organizers or other users.

There is no agreement or understanding between you and MediaWiki.org regarding your use or modification of this information beyond the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL); neither is anyone at this wiki responsible should someone change, edit, modify or remove any information posted on this wiki.
