    CLEVERLEY, P.H., BURNETT, S. and MUIR, L. 2017. Exploratory information searching in the enterprise: a study of user satisfaction and task performance. Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology [online], 68(1), pages 77-96. Available from: https://dx.doi.org/10.1002/asi.23595.
    No prior research has been identified that investigates the causal factors for workplace exploratory search task performance. The impact of user, task, and environmental factors on user satisfaction and task performance ...
  • Gaze tracking and its application to video coding for sign language. 

    Muir, Laura J.; Richardson, I. E. G.; Leaper, Steven (IEEE, 2003)
    MUIR, L., RICHARDSON, I., LEAPER, S., 2003. Gaze tracking and its application to video coding for sign language. In: Proceedings of Picture Coding Symposium 2003. 23-25 May 2003. Piscataway, NJ: IEEE. pp. 321-325.
    Sign language communication via videotelephone has demanding visual quality requirements. In order to optimise video coding for sign language it is necessary to quantify the importance of areas of the video scene. Eye ...
  • Increasing evidence informed decision making practices among senior non-clinical NHS managers. 

    Stevenson, Paul (Robert Gordon University School of Creative and Cultural Business, 2017-04-01)
    STEVENSON, P. 2017. Increasing evidence informed decision making practices among senior non-clinical NHS managers. Robert Gordon University, DInfSc thesis.
    There is limited engagement with research based evidence among senior managers within the NHS, and a failure to consistently integrate research findings into the decision making process. While much is known about the ...
  • Like an open book? Accessibility of e-book content for academic study in a diverse student population. 

    Muir, Laura J.; Veale, Thomas; Nichol, Anne (CILIP Library and Information Research Group http://www.lirgjournal.org.uk/lir/ojs/index.php/lir/article/view/157/277, 2009)

    This paper reviews previous research on e-books and the information seeking behaviour of scholars. It presents the initial findings from an in-depth study of the behaviour and experiences of seven students (including ...
  • Perceptions of sign language and its application to visual communications for deaf people. 

    Muir, Laura J.; Richardson, I. E. G. (Oxford University Press http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/deafed/eni037, 2005)
    MUIR, L.J. and RICHARDSON, I.E.G., 2005. Perceptions of sign language and its application to visual communications for deaf people. Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 10 (4), pp. 390-401
    Video communication systems for deaf people are limited in terms of quality and performance, particularly at low bit rates. Analysis of visual attention mechanisms for sign language may enable optimisation of video coding ...
  • Re-examining and re-conceptualising enterprise search and discovery capability: towards a model for the factors and generative mechanisms for search task outcomes. 

    Cleverley, Paul Hugh (Robert Gordon University School of Creative and Cultural Business, 2017-05-01)
    CLEVERLEY, P.H. 2017. Re-examining and re-conceptualising enterprise search and discovery capability: towards a model for the factors and generative mechanisms for search task outcomes. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.
    Many organizations are trying to re-create the ‘Google experience’, to find and exploit their own corporate information. However, there is evidence that finding information in the workplace using search engine technology ...
