Time-saving resources for information about simulation

Simulation is one of the most effective teaching/learning techniques and in past issues I've offered information about various organizations that provide information. Today I thought I'd list some articles that I've found helpful as simulation resources. We are so busy that we seldom have time to do a literature review on topics of interest, so I've done the work for you and presented the results here. I hope providing this information will save you some time.
