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 paper gives a brief description of the background and emergence of the concept of a common information environment. It offers a set of characteristics that define implementations of the concept, and describes some of the associated issues. A discussion of scaling factors leads to the conclusion that smaller countries are at the best scale and scope to achieve good benefits from public investment in a common information environment. Recent developments associated with the implementation of a common information environment in Scotland are described.
