Recent Papers on Exoplanet Instruments, Mission Concepts, and Studies

SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System - ADS is a valuable source for published papers on Exoplanet science, Instruments, and Mission Concepts. To search by topic, enter one or more terms, like the following, into the keyword box: starshade, coronagraph, "debris disk”, exoplanet.

ArXiv.org (astro-ph) - Many of the most recent preprints are available from arXiv. Use the ‘Advanced search’ to narrow your search with more than one criterion

Papers on instruments for space-based exoplanet imaging and spectroscopy - A list of recent instrument papers and reports on high-contrast imaging with starshades and coronagraphs, compiled by Peter Lawson.
