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

This work within The SAGE Reference Series on Leadership will provide undergraduate students with an authoritative reference resource on political and civic leadership. To avoid content overlap with other works in the series, this 2-volume set will be centered on the 100 most important topics, issues, question, and debates specific to politics and civic society. By focusing on 100 key topics, we hope to provide students with more detailed information and depth of discussion than typically found in an encyclopedia entry but not as much jargon, detail or density as a journal article or a research handbook chapter.
