Here's a new article, on IEEE's site (and this one's free):

"Oscillator Phase Noise: A 50-Year Review", by David B. Leeson


Also, a few months IEEE had a "Special Issue to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Allan Variance".
The full list of papers is here:

Most of the articles are behind the IEEE paywall. Some free exceptions here:

"Introduction to the Special Issue on Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Allan Variance"

"The Parabolic Variance (PVAR): A Wavelet Variance Based on the Least-Square Fit"
also at:

"Simulations of the Hadamard Variance: Probability Distributions and Confidence Intervals"


Best of all, a free version of the David Allan and Judah Levine paper is here:

"A Historical Perspective on the Development of the Allan Variances and Their Strengths and Weaknesses"
