Openness and praxis: exploring the use of open educational practices in higher education
(Athabasca University Press, 2017-08)
Open educational practices (OEP) is a broad descriptor of practices that include the creation, use and reuse of open educational resources (OER) as well as open pedagogies and open sharing of teaching practices. As compared ...
New directions for academic libraries in research staffing: A case study at National University of Ireland Galway
(Taylor & Francis, 2017-04-10)
New research needs, global developments and local shifts in emphasis are demanding a broader range of interactions by librarians with researchers and are challenging previous staffing structures. Research has a higher ...
Multiwavelength follow-up of a rare icecube neutrino multiplet
(EDP Sciences, 2017-11-01)
On February 17, 2016, the IceCube real-time neutrino search identified, for the first time, three muon neutrino candidates arriving within 100 s of one another, consistent with coming from the same point in the sky. Such ...
Clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a multifaceted podiatry intervention for falls prevention in older people: a multicentre cohort randomised controlled trial (the reducing falls with orthoses and a multifaceted podiatry intervention trial)
(National Institute for Health Research, 2017-04-01)
Background: Falls are a serious cause of morbidity and cost to individuals and society. Evidence suggests that foot problems and inappropriate footwear may increase the risk of falling. Podiatric interventions could help ...
The ins and outs of microorganism–electrode electron transfer reactions
(Springer Nature, 2017-03-08)
Electron transfer between microorganisms and an electrode - even across long distances - enables the former to live by coupling to an electronic circuit. Such a system integrates biological metabolism with artificial ...
Latitude and lake size are important predictors of over-lake atmospheric stability
Turbulent fluxes across the air-water interface are integral to determining lake heat budgets, evaporation, and carbon emissions from lakes. The stability of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) influences the exchange of ...
A luminous and isolated gamma-ray flare from the blazar b2 1215+30
(American Astronomical Society, 2017-02-21)
B2 1215+30 is a BL-Lac-type blazar that was first detected at TeV energies by the MAGIC atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes and subsequently confirmed by the Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System (VERITAS) ...
Discovery of very-high-energy emission from rgb j2243+203 and derivation of its redshift upper limit
(American Astronomical Society, 2017-11-10)
Very-high-energy (VHE; &gt; 100 GeV) gamma-ray emission from the blazar RGB J2243+203 was discovered with the VERITAS Cherenkov telescope array, during the period between 2014 December 21 and 24. The VERITAS energy ...
Comparative study on assimilating remote sensing high frequency radar surface currents at an atlantic marine renewable energy test site
(MDPI AG, 2017-12-19)
A variety of data assimilation approaches have been applied to enhance modelling capability and accuracy using observations from different sources. The algorithms have varying degrees of complexity of implementation, and ...
