List of peer-reviewed papers challenging official explanations of collapses of WTC buildings on 9/11

I've obtained the following list from

August 2008 | Environmental anomalies at the World Trade Center: evidence for energetic materials
Journal: The Environmentalist (2009) 29: 56-63
Authors: Kevin Ryan et al
Download Paper (PDF): The Environmentalist – Environmental Anomalies at the WTC Evidence for Energetic Materials

April 2008 | Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction
Journal: The Open Journal of Civil Engineering (Bentham Open)
Authors: Dr. Steven Jones (S&J Scientific Co.) et al
August 2008 | Comments on WTC 7 Report 
Host of publication: National Institute of Standards and Technology
Authors: Dr. David Proe and Dr. Ian Thomas (Victoria University, Australia)
Link: PDF
Note: This is not a peer-reviewed paper. It is an analysis that was submitted to the NIST during the public comments period by two of Australia’s top researchers in fire engineering. Their analysis refutes NIST’s WTC 7 Report. NIST has yet not responded to their questions.
April 2009 | Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe
Journal: The Open Journal of Chemical Physics
Authors: Dr. Niels H. Harrit (University of Copenhagen) et al
April 2011 | Collapse Time Analysis of Multi-Story Structural Steel Buildings
Journal: The Open Civil Engineering Journal (Bentham Open) (Vol.5, 2011, pp. 25-35)
Authors: Dr. Robert Korol (McMaster University) et al

Journal: Int. J. Structural Engineering, Vol. 3, No. 3, pp.189-207
Author: Dr. Gregory Szuladzinski  (PhD, Structural Mechanics; FEIA & Member of ASCE)

November 2012 | Energy Absorption Potential of Light Weight Concrete FloorsJournal: Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering (Vol. 39, pp: 1193-1201)
Authors: Dr. Robert Korol and Dr. K. S. Sivakumaran (McMaster University)

June 2013 | Some Misunderstanding Related to WTC Collapse AnalysisJournal: International Journal of Protective Structures (Vol. 4, No. 2 / June 2013)
