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

Craig Loehle’s opening sentence captured my attention and set the scene for this interesting and well-constructed volume. It is challenging and pro-vocative throughout and is at its strongest when its frequent assertions initiate thoughts, contemplation, and reflection. Although its intended audience is students and researchers, I suggest that it would be a worthwhile read for everyone in the scientific community – researchers, academics, teachers, students from undergraduate stages onwards, technicians, engineers, managers and entrepreneurs, as well as interested observers.
