What to include in IDS?

I have journal articles that I want to consider for rebutting an enablement rejection.  The articles were published after the Applicant's filing date.  Should I submit these articles on an IDS or is it enough if I include (submit) the articles with a response for the Examiner's amendment for her consideration?  THank you.

Personally, I would be wary about using articles published after the filing date unless it refers to what was known as of the filing date.  Why not submit a Rule 132 Affidavit?  Just be careful not to create estoppel problems.
