28 Peer-Reviewed Journal Papers that Critically Analyze 9/11

Since the first peer-reviewed journal paper that critically examined the evidence of the events of September 11th, 2001, which was by physics professor Steven E. Jones entitled “What Accounts for the Molten Metal Observed on 9/11/2001?” in the Journal of the Utah Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters in 2006, there have been several academics that worked very hard over the years to publish in mainstream journals despite the barriers. This is a major achievement for the 9/11 research community. The community is encouraged to read the following four recent papers, especially the conclusion of the doctoral dissertation at Oklahoma State University:

Excellent review - and website!

Thank you for this great effort.
I encourage others to visit this website, which I was not aware of before today:

Last sentence in the PhD thesis says...

on page 266: "Without systematic reflection upon the hegemonies, ideologies, and discourses that influence how we think about such socially constructed categories as “conspiracy theorists” and “9/11 Truthers,” the existing ruling systems of authorities and their truth regimes will likely continue to practice false flag, domestic terror operations."

Generally, there are more than 28 peer-reviewed papers if you take into account the Hidden History of 9-11, published by the Elsevier Science Press, which was a volume consisting of several papers.

Prof. Hulsey's WTC7 Evaluation?

Does anyone know what the current status is of Prof. J. Leroy Hulsey's study of the collapse of WTC7? It was supposed to be ready this month, but I can find no current information about it.

From WTC7Evaluation.Org

WTC 7 Evaluation is a study at the University of Alaska Fairbanks using finite element modeling to evaluate the possible causes of World Trade Center Building 7's collapse.

Update: Tune in at 8 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, to watch the livestream of Dr. Leroy Hulsey’s presentation from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. There he will present the findings and conclusions of the study detailed in his team’s September 2017 progress report, which will be issued the same day.

A draft report of the study will be released in October or November 2017 and will be open for public comment for a six-week period, allowing for input from the public and the engineering community. A final report will then be published in early 2018.<\blockquote>
