  • A very long engagement: Visualising research methodologies from data collection to reporting

    Bliss, Elaine; Janson, Annick (Bond University, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, 2007)
    In the present article, we develop arguments to show that audio visual data encourages varying levels of engagement (from micro to macro levels) of varying actors in the research process. First, gathering of visual material ...
  • Very low frequency supercapacitor techniques to improve the end-to-end efficiency of DC-DC converters based on commercial off the shelf LDOs
