They're not links as such, but journal articles. I'm sure you'll find them on the net though.
Here's my reference list - I've copied and pasted from my assignment: From memory, the ones that have the most about helmet use are Jagodzinski & Demuri, Lim et al, Mayberry et al and Siebanga et al. Actually I think most of them had stuff about helmet use, but some more than others.
