This table provides up to date references (with NASA ADS links) for the discovery papers for burst oscillations for individual Type I X-ray burst sources. It includes all 19 sources where the burst oscillation detection is considered to be robust, and is an updated version of Table 1 in my Annual Review of Astronomy and Astrophysics paper on the topic (Watts 2012). Second (confirmation) references are given for sources where the initial discovery rested on a single burst. I do not include tentative detections (see Table 2 of Watts 2012). This site is maintained by Anna Watts and is a work in progress. You are welcome to use this reference library in publications: please refer to the url ( in either the acknowledgements or a footnote.
