Proto-Japonic Resources?

Hello, I'm working on making a Japonic constructed language, and need resources on Proto-Japonic reconstruction, such as phonology, morphology, etc. However, regular Google isn't useful for shit, and scholar.google only nets me a couple of ebooks that are somewhat expensive for digital books, and really aren't worth buying just to make a conlang. So, I was wondering if anyone here would happen to have some (digital) resources/guides on the phonetics, morphology, etc. of Proto-Japonic or, at least, Old-Japanese or Old-Ryukyuan. If anyone would be able to help me, you'll have my eternal thanks. Thank-you.

I've looked into this before too, and unfortunately there's not a lot out there in English (or in Japanese for that matter). My only suggestion would be to trawl Wikipedia and follow the source links. Wikipedia has a lot of general information on conjugation/declension patterns, phonology and such, but sorely (as you'd expect) lacks any decent corpus of lexicon.
