The role of green roofs on reducing heating and cooling loads: a database across Chinese climates (2011)
Journal Article
Kokogiannakis, G., Tietje, A., & Darkwa, J. (2011). The role of green roofs on reducing heating and cooling loads: a database across Chinese climates. Procedia Environmental Sciences, 11(B), doi:10.1016/j.proenv.2011.12.094. ISSN 1878-0296

This paper aims to use detailed modelling techniques and develop a database for assessing in a quick and easy way the energy performance of green roof designs across a range of Chinese climates. The focus is on heating and cooling loads by calculatin... Read More

The influence of cross-language similarity on within- and between-language Stroop effects in trilinguals (2011)
Journal Article
van Heuven, W. J., Conklin, K., Coderre, E. L., Guo, T., & Dijkstra, T. (2011). The influence of cross-language similarity on within- and between-language Stroop effects in trilinguals. Frontiers in Psychology, 2(374), doi:10.3389/fpsyg.2011.00374. ISSN 1664-1078

This study investigated effects of cross-language similarity on within- and between-language Stroop interference and facilitation in three groups of trilinguals. Trilinguals were either proficient in three languages that use the same-script (alphabet... Read More

Adapting the cosmological tradition in Isaiah 40-45 (2011)
Journal Article
Crouch, C. (in press). Adapting the cosmological tradition in Isaiah 40-45. Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament, 25(2), doi:10.1080/09018328.2011.608544. ISSN 0901-8328

The characterisation of Yahweh as king in Isaiah 40-45 and the use of creation language to reiterate Yahweh's power are well known. This article examines the way in which these themes reflect this text's re-working of pre-exilic theology in order to... Read More

The isolation of spatial patterning modes in a mathematical model of juxtacrine cell signalling (2011)
Journal Article
O'Dea, R. D., & King, J. R. (2013). The isolation of spatial patterning modes in a mathematical model of juxtacrine cell signalling. Mathematical Medicine and Biology, 30(2), doi:10.1093/imammb/dqr028. ISSN 1477-8599

Juxtacrine signalling mechanisms are known to be crucial in tissue and organ development, leading to spatial patterns in gene expression. We investigate the patterning behaviour of a discrete model of juxtacrine cell signalling due to Owen \& Sherrat... Read More

Role of the rumen in copper and thiomolybdate absorption (2011)
Journal Article
Gould, L., & Kendall, N. R. (2011). Role of the rumen in copper and thiomolybdate absorption. Nutrition Research Reviews, 24(2), doi:10.1017/S0954422411000059. ISSN 0954-4224

The rumen is the site of significant interactions between Cu, S and Mo. It also shows reactions between Cu, S and Fe. The interaction between Mo and S results in the formation of thiomolybdates, which in the absence of adequate quantities of rumen Cu... Read More

Investigation of the origin and spread of a mammalian transposable element based on current sequence diversity (2011)
Journal Article
Hellen, E. H., & Brookfield, J. F. (2011). Investigation of the origin and spread of a mammalian transposable element based on current sequence diversity. Journal of Molecular Evolution, 73(5-6), doi:10.1007/s00239-011-9475-y. ISSN 0022-2844

Almost half the human genome consists of mobile DNA elements, and their analysis is a vital part of understanding the human genome as a whole. Many of these elements are ancient and have persisted in the genome for tens or hundreds of millions of yea... Read More

Designing a multi-agent approach system for distributed course timetabling (2011)
Conference Proceeding
Obit, J. H., Landa-Silva, D., Ouelhadj, D., Khan Vun, T., & Alfred, R. (2011). Designing a multi-agent approach system for distributed course timetabling

This paper proposes tackling the difficult course timetabling problem using a multi-agent approach. The proposed design seeks to deal with the problem using a distributed solution environment in which a mediator agent coordinates various timetabling... Read More

Diabetes health-beliefs, self-care practices and glycaemic control among Malaysian young adults with diabetes (2011)
Journal Article
Aris, A., Blake, H., & Adams, G. (2011). Diabetes health-beliefs, self-care practices and glycaemic control among Malaysian young adults with diabetes. Journal of Nursing Referência (Revista de Enfermagem Referência), 4(Supp), ISSN 0874-0283

Self-care practices and glycaemic control remain suboptimal among young adults with diabetes. One of the known factors to influence self-care behaviours is health beliefs. Targeting health beliefs through diabetes education facilitates individual’s d... Read More

Towards the development of a simulator for investigating the impact of people management practices on retail performance (2011)
Journal Article
Siebers, P., Aickelin, U., Celia, H., & Clegg, C. (2011). Towards the development of a simulator for investigating the impact of people management practices on retail performance. Journal of Simulation, 5(4), 242-265. doi:10.1057/jos.2010.20

Often models for understanding the impact of management practices on retail performance are developed under the assumption of stability, equilibrium and linearity, whereas retail operations are considered in reality to be dynamic, non-linear and comp... Read More

Managing learning trajectories: the case of 14-19 mathematics (2011)
Journal Article
Noyes, A., & Sealey, P. (2011). Managing learning trajectories: the case of 14-19 mathematics. Educational Review, 63(2), doi:10.1080/00131911.2010.534768. ISSN 0013-1911

In this paper we explore how mathematics department leaders manage curriculum (what is taught), teaching (how it is taught) and learner progression (what results) for 14-19 year olds. The background to the study is a range of national, and internati... Read More
