  • ‘Guys! Stop doing it!’: young women's adoption and rejection of safety advice when socializing in bars, pubs and clubs 

    Brooks, Oona (Oxford University Press, 2011)
    Concern about the increase in alcohol consumption amongst young women, drink spiking and drug-assisted sexual assault have culminated in a renewed focus on safety advice for young women. This paper examines young women's ...
  • Gyorgy Lukacs 

    Law, Alex (Edinburgh University Press, 2005)
  • Handbook of secure care 

    Dickens, Geoffrey L.; Sugarman, Philip A.; Picchioni, Marco M.; editors (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 2015-07)
    In any society a small proportion of people with mental disorder present with behaviour that transgresses norms and violates the rights of others. Yet these people are often vulnerable themselves to violence, abuse or ...
  • Handedness and behavioural inhibition: Left-handed females show most inhibition as measured by BIS/BAS self-report 

    Wright, Lynn; Hardie, Scott M.; Wilson, Karen (Elsevier, 2008-10-09)
    This study investigated the relationship between handedness, gender and behavioural approach and inhibition using Carver and White’s (1994) BIS/BAS Scale. 112 participants took part: 46 left-handers and 66 right-handers. ...
  • The HCR-20 as a measure of reliable and clinically significant change in violence risk among secure psychiatric inpatients 

    O'Shea, Laura E.; Dickens, Geoffrey L. (Elsevier, 2015-07-20)
    Objective Periodic structured violence risk assessment is the principle method underlying treatment planning for mentally disordered offenders but little is known about how risk changes over time. We aimed to determine ...
  • He sees, she smells? Male and female reports of sensory reliance in mate choice and non-mate choice contexts 

    Havlicek, Jan; Saxton, Tamsin K.; Roberts, S. Craig; Jozifkova, Eva; Lhota, Stanislav; Valentova, Jaroslava; Flegr, Jaroslav (Elsevier, 2008-10)
    Men and women differ in the importance that they ascribe to the characters of a potential mate. Previous work has shown that women rate olfactory cues as more important than men in mate choice. We investigated whether this ...
  • Health complaints among adolescents: associations with more screen-based behaviours and less physical activity 

    Marques, Adilson; Calmeiro, Luis; Loureiro, Nuno; Frasquilho, Diana; Matos, Margarida Gaspar de (Elsevier, 2015-08-11)
    In this study, we investigated the relationship between screen-based behaviours, physical activity, and health complaints (headaches, feeling low, irritability, and nervousness). Screen-based behaviour included TV viewing, ...
  • Health related behaviours: grouped risks across adolescence 

    Matos, Margarida Gaspar de; Calmeiro, Luis; Batista-Foguet, Joan M.; Loureiro, Nuno; Mota, Jorge (Federação Brasileira de Terapias Cognitivas, 2007)
    Purpose: Adolescence can be associated with a tendency to engage in health damaging behaviour. The purpose of this study is to test whether cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors are present in this age group, and to ...
  • Hegemony 

    Law, Alex (Edinburgh University Press, 2005)
  • Helping formulate propositions in forensic DNA analysis 

    Buckleton, John; Bright, Jo-Anne; Taylor, Duncan; Evett, Ian; Hicks, Tacha; Jackson, Graham; Curran, James M. (Elsevier, 2014-07)
    The Bayesian paradigm is the preferred approach to evidence interpretation. It requires the evaluation of the probability of the evidence under at least two propositions. The value of the findings (i.e., our LR) will depend ...
  • Heterogeneity in susceptible–infected–removed (SIR) epidemics on lattices 

    Neri, Franco M.; Perez-Reche, Francisco J.; Taraskin, Sergei N.; Gilligan, Christopher A. (The Royal Society, 2011-02)
    The percolation paradigm is widely used in spatially explicit epidemic models where disease spreads between neighbouring hosts. It has been successful in identifying epidemic thresholds for invasion, separating non-invasive ...
  • The heterogeneous soil environment: are there preferential pathways for fungal spread? 

    Otten, Wilfred; Harris, Kirsty; Hall, Darroch; Young, Iain M.; Ritz, Karl; Gilligan, Christopher A. (IOBC/WPRS, 2002)
  • The hidden histories of objects: provenance, storytelling and tagging technologies 

    O'Callaghan, Simone; Speed, Chris (The Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts (ISEA), 2011)
    This paper explores storytelling methods to follow the lives of objects from their first inception to the narratives they collect along the way. It is part of TOTeM[1] a £1.39M research project based around the “Internet ...
  • High intensity training improves health and physical function in middle aged adults 

    Adamson, Simon; Lorimer, Ross; Cobley, James N.; Lloyd, Ray; Babraj, John A. (MDPI, 2014-05-12)
    High intensity training (HIT) is effective at improving health; however, it is unknown whether HIT also improves physical function. This study aimed to determine whether HIT improves metabolic health and physical function ...
  • High quality electron beams from a laser wakefield accelerator 

    Wiggins, S. M.; Issac, R. C.; Welsh, G. H.; Brunetti, E.; Shanks, R. P.; Anania, M. P.; Cipiccia, S.; Manahan, G. G.; Aniculaesei, C.; Ersfeld, B.; Islam, M. R.; Burgess, R. T. L.; Vieux, G.; Gillespie, W. A.; MacLeod, Allan M.; van der Geer, S. B.; de Loos, M. J.; Jaroszynski, D. A. (Institute of Physics, 2010-12)
    High quality electron beams have been produced in a laser-plasma accelerator driven by femtosecond laser pulses with a peak power of 26 TW. Electrons are produced with an energy up to 150 MeV from the 2 mm gas jet accelerator ...

    Very stable, high quality electron beams (current ~ 10 kA, energy spread < 1%, emittance ~ 1π mm mrad) have been generated in a laser-plasma accelerator driven by 25 TW femtosecond laser pulses.
  • High-intensity cycling training: the effect of work-to-rest intervals on running performance measures 

    Kavaliauskas, Mykolas; Aspe, Rodrigo R.; Babraj, John A. (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2015-08)
    The work-to-rest ratio during cycling-based high-intensity interval training (HIT) could be important in regulating physiological and performance adaptations. We sought to determine the effectiveness of cycling-based HIT ...
  • High-precision evaluation of the Bessel functions via Hadamard series 

    Paris, Richard B. (Elsevier, 2009-02-01)

  • Higher education & personal change in prisoners 

    Reuss, Anne Marie; Wilson, Anne (University of Leeds, 1997)

  • Higher education change and its managers: alternative constructions 

    Hotho, Sabine (SAGE, 2013-05)
    This article is based on a case study conducted in the context of UK higher education change. The article argues that ‘change’ is a construct created in discourses of change policy and change management, and resulting in ...
