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

Systems enabling Information Access whether it be; a file browser, a retrieval engine, a mobile device providing content, a personalized agent, etc, need to be evaluated appropriately for the discipline to be considered a science. The problem of how to appropriately evaluate such systems is even more problematic when the evaluation is conducted with human subjects.
