Open Access: World leading research into plasma physics...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Physics, including those researching plasma physics.

Plasma physics explores the '4th' state of matter known as 'plasma'. Profound new insights are being made by Strathclyde researchers in their attempts to better understand plasma, its behaviour and applications. Areas of focus include plasma wave propagation, non-linear wave interactions in the ionosphere, magnetospheric cyclotron instabilities, the parametric instabilities in plasmas, and much more.

Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.

Abstract

This study protocol outlines a two-part study that will evaluate an evidence-based metacognitive approach to literacy, the Strathclyde Higher Order Thinking Skills programme (SHORS). A pilot (study 1) will inform the main study (study 2). The design of the study is an eight week intervention with pre- and post-measures. This protocol provides the details of the rationale and design of the study and details of the intervention, outcome measures, and the recruitment process. The study will address gaps within current research by evaluating the intervention impact within a Scottish setting.
