  1. 1. Wheelchair Passengers and Local Public Transport Vehicles: Perceptions of Safety and Comfort

    University dissertation from Department of Technology and Society, Lund University

    Author : Anders Wretstrand; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road transport technology; Public transport; Bus; STS; Perception; Comfort; Wheelchair users; Safety; Vägtransportteknik; Care and help to handicapped; Handikappade; vård och rehabilitering;

    Abstract : Eliciting wheelchair-seated passengers’ perspective of safety and comfort is both useful and mandatory, particularly for researchers, clinicians, transit authorities, and for operators during purchase and use of vehicle technologies in existing and planned future transport systems. Therefore, the overarching objective of this thesis was to delineate the question of safety and comfort as perceived by wheelchair-seated passengers using public transport road vehicles. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Human Y chromosome and its role in the developing male nervous system

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Recent research demonstrated that besides a role in sex determination and male fertility, the Y chromosome is involved in additional functions including prostate cancer, sex-specific effects on the brain and behaviour, graft-versus-host disease, nociception, aggression and autoimmune diseases. The results presented in this thesis include an analysis of sex-biased genes encoded on the X and Y chromosomes of rodents. READ MORE

  3. 3. Citeringens praktiker: Det vetenskapliga publicerandet som teori, metod och forskningspolitik The practices of the citation: Scientific publication as theory, method and research policy

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Gustaf Nelhans; Högskolan i Borås.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Library and Information Science; Biblioteks- och informationsvetenskap; performativitet; citeringskultur; citeringsmangel; citeringstypologi; citeringspraktiker; citeringsnätverk; vetenskapstepori; vetenskapsstudier; vetenskaps- och teknikstudier; performativity; citation practices; citation; mangle; citation culture; citation networks; HistCite; citation map; historiograph; ontology; controversy; Science and Technology Studies; STS; Theory of science;

    Abstract : The thesis investigates the scientific citation and its various functions in the scientific community and develops it as a tool for research in theory of science, scientometrics and science studies. Through empirical and theoretical studies that utilize both quali-tative and quantitative methods the citation’s history, method, as well as its use in research policy is examined. READ MORE

  4. 4. Thin Mn silicide and germanide layers studied by photoemission and STM

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Joakim Hirvonen Grytzelius; Karlstads universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Semiconductor surfaces; Si 111 ; Ge 111 ; manganese; Mn; silicides; germanides; atomic structure; electronic structure; magnetic properties; LEED; ARPES; XPS; core-level spectroscopy; STM; STS; XMCD; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : The research presented in this thesis concerns experimental studies of thin manganese silicide and germanide layers, grown by solid phase epitaxy on the Si(111)7×7 and the Ge(111)c(2×8) surfaces, respectively. The atomic and electronic structures, as well as growth modes of the epitaxial Mn-Si and Mn-Ge layers, were investigated by low-energy electron diffraction (LEED), angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES), core-level spectroscopy (CLS), and scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy (STM and STS).
