The nature and culture of social work with children and families in long‐term casework: Findings from a qualitative longitudinal study (2020)
Journal Article
Ferguson, H., Warwick, L., Cooner, T. S., Leigh, J., Beddoe, L., Disney, T., & Plumridge, G. (2020). The nature and culture of social work with children and families in long‐term casework: Findings from a qualitative longitudinal study. Child and Family Social Work, https://doi.org/10.1111/cfs.12746

Social work in the United Kingdom is preoccupied with what social workers cannot do due to having limited time to spend with service users. Yet remarkably little research has examined what social workers actually do, especially in long-term relations...

The role of conflicting representations and uncertainty in internal error detection during L2 learning Language Learning (2019)
Journal Article
Bultena, S., Danielmeier, C., Bekkering, H., & Lemhöfer, K. (in press). The role of conflicting representations and uncertainty in internal error detection during L2 learning Language Learning. Language Learning,

Internal error monitoring as reflected by the error-related negativity (ERN) component can give insight in the L2 learning process. Yet, beginning stages of learning are characterized by high levels of uncertainty, which obscures the process of error...

Torsions, low-frequency vibrations, and vibration–torsion (“vibtor”) levels in the m-chlorotoluene cation (2020)
Journal Article
Kemp, D. J., Warner, L. G., & Wright, T. G. (2020). Torsions, low-frequency vibrations, and vibration–torsion (“vibtor”) levels in the m-chlorotoluene cation. Journal of Chemical Physics, 152(6), https://doi.org/10.1063/1.5142992

Zero-electron-kinetic-energy (ZEKE) spectra are presented for m-chlorotoluene (mClT), employing different low-lying torsional and vibration–torsional (“vibtor”) levels of the S1 state as intermediates. The adiabatic ionization energy is determined to... Read More about Torsions, low-frequency vibrations, and vibration–torsion (“vibtor”) levels in the m-chlorotoluene cation.

Tuning Interfacial Spins in Antiferromagnetic–Ferromagnetic–Heavy-Metal Heterostructures via Spin-Orbit Torque (2020)
Journal Article
Wang, K. Y., Liu, X. H., Zhou, Z. P., & Edmonds, K. W. (2020). Tuning Interfacial Spins in Antiferromagnetic–Ferromagnetic–Heavy-Metal Heterostructures via Spin-Orbit Torque. Physical Review Applied, 13(1), https://doi.org/10.1103/physrevapplied.13.014059

Antiferromagnets are outstanding candidates for the next generation of spintronic applications, with great potential for downscaling and decreasing power consumption. Recently, the manipulation of bulk properties of antiferromagnets has been realized...
