Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The ESRC's examination of demography in the social sciences demonstrated convincingly that the requirements for experienced research active academics in the Management and Business Studies area would shortly far outweigh the numbers available unless action was taken. This presentation briefly outlines a major initiative taken by the MBS community, in collaboration with the ESRC, intended to bolster the number of entries into the area and support their development as new researchers. The initiative consists of several streams of support for a range of types of fellows and students and a matrix of developmental programmes to support them and others in the field.
