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

ASPECT provides web-based access to a digital archive of ephemera (leaflets, flyers, postcards and newsletters) produced by political parties and candidates for the 1999 Scottish parliamentary election. This paper describes the background to and initial development of ASPECT, reports on current work to develop a multi-election archive with enhanced user services, and discusses the potential for ASPECT to play an active role in supporting e-democracy in Scotland.
