Re: Centrosaurus brinkmani, new ceratopsian

Yeah Jordan's (may be?) right here. Officially it hasn't been published yet in 
paper form
according to the journal's website, even though the pdf is availible to some. 
But that may be
because the journal is slow to update it's site.
The Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences site carries a disclaimer:
''A new centrosaurine cera.....
This article contains taxonomic descriptions. Therefore, the link to it will 
not be made available
until the print version has been distributed.
Michael J. Ryan and Anthony P. Russell
Pages 1369-1387''

It's October now, and this paper makes up the July issue, so i'm not really 
sure what the official
date of publication is.
Anyway, for preliminary reading, i recommend checking out Eberth and Getty, 
'Ceratopsian bonebeds:
occurence, origins and significance' (2005, in the DPP volume); the new species 
of centrosaurine
was mentioned and briefly discussed in Eberth and Getty (2005 in the DPP 
volume) as Bone Bed 138.

In the same CJES volume are other dinosaur related papers. Most have already 
Anatomy of the Early Cretaceous bird Eoenantiornis buhleri (Aves: 
Enantiornithes) from China.
Zhonghe Zhou, Luis M. Chiappe, and Fucheng Zhang
Pages 1331-1338

...but what about:
Unusual tetrapod teeth from the Upper Triassic Chinle Formation, Arizona, USA
This article contains taxonomic descriptions. Therefore, the link to it will 
not be made available
until the print version has been distributed.
Randall B. Irmis and William G. Parker
Pages 1339-1345?

I take it that new taxa will be named in this paper due to the disclaimer
