External papers which make use of public Planck data

An attempt to provide a list of papers produced by scientists not representing the Planck Collaboration but based on public Planck data is provided below. The list was generated using the search functionality of the ADS, followed by a manual modification of the resulting list, i.e., we include papers that somehow make use of Planck data and have been accepted for publication. Note that this list may be incomplete.
