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 reviews work undertaken to better understand the performance of physical and virtual union catalogues for the purposes of resource discovery and retrieval within the JISC Information Environment, as under the auspices of the CC-interop project. System-level variations in the ability of systems to process search queries were noted and the impact of disparate cataloguing and indexing practices on recall and precision were also investigated. Recommendations for improving interoperability (including semantic interoperability) are proposed.
