Affect of non-standard load for calibration

Can anyone point me to any scholarly articles on the effect of a non-standard (ie: not equal to 50+/-j0) load and its effects on the resulting calibration process for vector network analyzers?   How does a non-standard load skew the resulting calibration results.  I know if you go thru the math related to the signal flow graphs one may determine the results,  however I'm not up to solving these equations right now and am wondering if anyone has written a paper or two describing the effects.
