    Forms of participatory practice have become ever more widely employed across the arts in recent years, operating across various institutional settings and social contexts. It is misleading, however, to assume that a single ...
  • Effect of load positioning on the kinematics and kinetics of weighted vertical jumps. 

    Swinton, Paul Alan; Stewart, Arthur D.; Lloyd, Ray; Agouris, Ioannis; Keogh, Justin W. L. (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins. http://dx.doi.org/10.1519/JSC.0b013e31822e589e, 2012-04)

    One of the most popular exercises for developing lower-body muscular power is the weighted vertical jump. The present study sought to examine the effect of altering the position of the external load on the kinematics and ...
  • Employee reactions to management communication: a study of operations personnel in the oil industry. 

    Tsiontsi, Nikoletta (Robert Gordon University Department of Communication, Marketing and Media, 2012-05)
    Based on an intense small scale study which observed a small team of operations personnel who work in a telecommunications company within the oil industry, this thesis examined employee reactions to management communication. ...

    The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the deadlift could be effectively incorporated with explosive resistance training (ERT), and to investigate whether the inclusion of chains enhanced the suitability of ...
  • Locating ‘power’ in wind power planning processes: the (not so) influential role of local objectors. 

    Aitken, Mhairi; McDonald, Seonaidh; Strachan, Peter (Taylor & Francis http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/09640560802423566, 2008-11)
