ARAN is the digital collection of open access scholarly publications from NUI Galway. ARAN collects, preserves and makes freely available scholarly communication, including peer-reviewed articles, working papers and conference papers created by NUI Galway researchers. Where material has already been published it is made available subject to the open-access policies of the original publishers.


Open Access to Research Outputs

NUI Galway’s policy on Open Access to Research Outputs, adopted by the Academic Council in October 2015, aims to promote open access to the University’s publications. Authors of peer-reviewed articles and peer-reviewed conference papers resulting from research carried out at NUI Galway must deposit a copy in the ARAN (Access to Research at NUI Galway) repository. ARAN enables easy discovery of publications through global search engines such as Google and complements IRIS by linking from author profiles to the full text of University publications. See Help for information on how to submit your publications to ARAN.

  • A networks-science investigation into the epic poems of Ossian 

    Yose, Joseph; Kenna, Ralph; Mac Carron, Pádraig; Platini, Thierry; Tonra, Justin (WorldScientific Open Access, 2016-10-21)
    In 1760 James Macpherson published the first volume of a series of epic poems which he claimed to have translated into English from ancient Scottish-Gaelic sources. The poems, which purported to have been composed by a ...
  • Optimization of a hydrogen combustion mechanism using both direct and indirect measurements 

    Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-07-05)
    The Keromnes et al. (2013) mechanism for hydrogen combustion has been optimized using a large set of indirect experimental data, consisting of ignition measurements in shock tubes (566 datapoints in 43 datasets) and rapid ...
  • The economics of farm afforestation in Ireland 

    Ryan, Mary (2016-10-20)
    In recent years, afforestation in Ireland as in many European countries has fallen well short of policy targets. Previous studies which address the decline in farm afforestation focus on either the economic or the behavioural ...
  • An updated experimental and kinetic modeling study of n-heptane oxidation 

    Zhang, Kuiwen; Banyon, Colin; Bugler, John; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2016-07-25)
    This work presents an updated experimental and kinetic modeling study of n-heptane oxidation. In the experiments, ignition delay times of stoichiometric n-heptaneiair mixtures have been measured in two different high-pressure ...
  • Development of a joint hydrogen and syngas combustion mechanism based on an optimization approach 

    Curran, Henry J. (Wiley, 2016-05-20)
    A comprehensive and hierarchical optimization of a joint hydrogen and syngas combustion mechanism has been carried out. The Keromnes et al. (Combust Flame, 2013, 160, 995-1011) mechanism for syngas combustion was updated ...
