Here is a quote from the preface of a recent publication:

This paper is the result of a long period of research …......Rather than subject myself to the limitations of commercial publishing and with regard to the limited market for the subject at this depth, the authors have decided to place unbound copies with the major archives in the UK for the benefit of future researchers.

There are many such articles, papers monographs and theses available on the web from reputable sources. What is forum etiquette? Should we publish the links here?

The quote was from The R.101 story: a review based on primary source material and first hand accounts by Peter Davison, Paper 2015/02 of the Journal Aeronautical History from the Royal Aeronautical Society.

I think it was Andy Warhol who said the he didn't read, he just looked at the pictures, and if this appeals the Spanish Air Force has published Aeroplano magazine annually since 1983.

Large format pdf's, lots of pages and pictures. See here and enjoy
