Hans-Guenter Diederich and Andreas Barchfeld of the BAV have kindly given me permission to cross-post their weekly list of variable-star papers.  The BAV has been compiling this for years.  When I subscribed to the BAV Forum in 2006, the astro-ph digests were already in progress!  I will add each week on as part of this thread.

The BAV Forum mail-list is very active and covers a wide variety of mostly technical topics.  I enjoy it a lot, and for those of you who do not speak German, Google Translate does a pretty good job of giving you the basic concepts contained in each post.  Likewise, their Rundbrief publication contains many good variable-star articles, and can be found at:

(In German, but the translators do a decent job).
