Evolution of deuterium-burning planets

Deuterium burning in objects forming via the core accretion scenario - Brown dwarfs or planets?

Investigating what happens if you build deuterium-burning objects via core accretion versus disc instability.

Another take on deuterium-burning planets

Deuterium Burning in Massive Giant Planets and Low-Mass Brown Dwarfs formed by Core-Nucleated Accretion

Among other things, Beta Pictoris b may be a deuterium-burning planet, depending on the formation conditions.
