#SriDocs

sri_docs

What on this page? Studies and researches, surveys and polls, reports and reviews, analyses and focus, outlooks, guidelines, guides and handbooks, presentations etc. etc. (and ‘MUST’, IMHO) about Sri.

I’ve tried to gather and organize them in some way (hope logically, and more or less with respect to chronology). You can find and download the docs, or at least surf and read, for free on the web (only in some cases you need to register or submit your email).

If you know anything about recent and relevant #SriDocs to point out, please tweet me. Thanks a lot in advance.

(docs listed: 151) (updated on November 20, 2017)
