  • Hi Karen McCarthy: All citations for images can be found on slide 44. I also see that references then are not visible on the slide directly. Yet it has become common practice to do it this way, like in scientific papers, that do not have footnotes on the page of the citation in most cases. Thanks for pointing this out for everybody.

  • Slide 3 graphic was actually created by a graphic designer at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. I am not sure why you have indicated University of St. Gallen. This is incorrect.
