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.

When discussing any of subject matter it is always important to have a clear message. This can change depending on which individual or organisation you are interacting with, but your core concepts should always remain the same. In this post, I want to discuss what the term digital health means and showcase some of the concepts it encompasses. As a starting point the Canadian Health Infoway defines digital health as the use of information technology/electronic communication tools, services and processes to deliver health care services, while the Australian government states that it is simply electronically connecting the points of care so health information can be shared securely. As both Australia and Canada are recognised leaders in digital health it is important to note their definitions.
