The Complete list of English papers by Fumio Inoue is recorded in this page. When the names of papers displayed in red and yellow are clicked, the pdf file of the papers is shown. It takes some time to download it, but it is possible to preserve and print. The papers displayed in blue are of the same content with other papers or a short paper. They will not be open to the public in the Internet.

It became possible to open to the public on the Internet by the goodwill of Sanseido. Any publisher will not publish a collection of English papers written in the past. I occasionally distributed individual papers in the form of offprint, but it was possible to distribute to only a few people. From now on, any person interested can readily read by opening to the public on the Internet.

Repetitions were partly found, when all the papers are actually scanned, printed, and arranged according to the field. The same distribution map of Japan is shown several times, for example. The basic information had to be repeated every time when writing for different readers. Even the deletion of this repetition would have been a serious work if publication in the shape of the book is attempted. It is likely not to have completed eternally. In this sense, being able to open to the public in shape as it is welcome.

The papers until 2008 become about 40. After graduate school, I seem to have written at the rate of one paper a year on the average. I did not think that the number of total pages reached page 600.

I wish to express my gratitude to Professor Takesi SIBATA who made the chance to write a paper in English and Professor Sachiko IDE who explained the importance of writing English papers. Courage to write in English was given because native speaker researchers readily and candidly undertook the native check. I am happy that there were good people around myself. I again wish to express my sincere gratitude to Mrs. Diane Rimmer, Mr. Wayne Lawrence and Mr. Daniel Long. I wish to express my gratitude to Sanseido to have offered this space, to Mr. Koichi YAMAMOTO who arranged to make work, to Mr. Kanetaka YARIMIZU to have attempted to build Internet homepage and Mr. Yuan JIANG who undertook the scanning work.
