(2020)
    Background: Complex issues, including a failure to consider the perspectives of people with fertility problems when selecting outcomes, variations in outcome definitions, and outcome reporting bias, make the results of ...
  • Investigating subantarctic ¹⁴C ages of different peat components: site and sample selection for developing robust age models in dynamic landscapes

    Thomas, Zoë; Turney, Chris S.M.; Hogg, Alan G.; Williams, Alan N.; Fogwill, Christopher J. (University of Arizona, 2019)
    Precise radiocarbon (¹⁴C) dating of sedimentary sequences is important for developing robust chronologies of environmental change, but sampling of suitable components can be challenging in highly dynamic landscapes. Here ...
  • Monitoring pre-hospital transport of severely injured patients in the Midland Region of New Zealand.

    Whitehead, Jesse; Roskruge, Matthew James; Tan, Colin; Smith, Alistair; Christey, Grant (New Zealand Medical Asssociation, 2018)
    AIM: Pre-hospital triage strategies aim to identify the type and extent of patient injuries and ensure that they are transferred to the most appropriate trauma centres. Despite the importance of appropriate pre-hospital ...
  • Groundwater-surface water interaction - A Lake-Modeller's conceptual view

    Lehmann, Moritz K. (GNS Science, 2016)
    This article explores the groundwater-surface water interaction from a conceptual point of view.
  • Does virtue ethics allow us to make better judgments of the actions of others?

    van Zyl, Liezl (Springer, 2019)
    Virtue ethics encourages us to judge the actions of others, not merely as right or wrong, but as virtuous (kind, courageous, just, compassionate, etc.) or vicious (cruel, cowardly, unjust, selfish, etc.). In doing so, ...
  • Te Pae Mahutonga and the measurement of community capital in regional Aotearoa New Zealand

    Ryks, John; Kilgour, Jonathan T.; Whitehead, Jesse; Rarere, Moana (New Zealand Demographic Society, 2018)
    Regionally, iwi and hapū have limited influence over structural changes such as population decline, proximity to labour markets and ageing, and to some extent economic cycles. However, there is still considerable value in ...
  • Training and maintaining autonomy-supportive supervisory style in low-skilled occupations

    Yong, Amy; Roche, Maree A.; Sutton, Anna (2019)
    According to self-determination theory, employees' well-being is related to the autonomy-supportive style of a supervisor. However, the effect of supervision style on well-being remains understudied in low-skilled occupations. ...
  • Supervisory skills training for the neglected supervisors: development and preliminary evaluation of an autonomy-supportive programme

    Yong, Amy; Roche, Maree A.; Sutton, Anna (Emerald, 2019)
    Purpose Previous studies have demonstrated that an autonomy-supportive supervision style is associated with improved well-being and positive behaviours for supervisees. However, autonomy-supportive training (AST) has yet ...
  • Mode choice and mode commitment in commuters

    Sivasubramaniyam, Rathee D.; Charlton, Samuel G.; Sargisson, Rebecca J. (Elsevier, 2020)
    In New Zealand, like many other developed countries, a majority of trips (67%) involve the use of private cars, producing negative effects on the environment and public health. Interventions aimed to reduce car use can be ...
  • Weber's law and the scalar property of timing: A test of canine timing

    Cliff, Jessica Helen; Jackson, Surrey M.K.; McEwan, James S.A.; Bizo, Lewis A. (MDPI, 2019)
    Domestic dogs completed a temporal bisection procedure that required a response to one lever following a light stimulus of short duration and to another lever following a light stimulus of a longer duration. The short and ...
  • Drivers’ response to speed warnings provided by a smart phone app

    Starkey, Nicola J.; Charlton, Samuel G.; Malhotra, Neha; Lehtonen, Esko (2020)
    The distractive effects of mobile phones are well documented, but the recent development of mobile phone apps that provide speed advisory warnings raises the possibility that this technology may be used to improve driver ...
  • Living the good life: A meta-analysis of authenticity, well-being and engagement

    Sutton, Anna (Elsevier, 2020)
    The ‘good life’ is described by philosophers and psychologists as consisting of authentic expression of self, a sense of well-being, and active engagement in life and work. Well-being and employee engagement are outcomes ...
  • Adopting knowledge building pedagogy to support epistemic agency and collaborative contribution in science classes: A case study in New Zealand schools

    Taylor, Simon (2019)
    This presentation draws on how secondary science teachers from three schools have helped to develop a knowledge building community with their junior classes
  • Non-orthogonally transitive G₂ spike solution

    Lim, Woei Chet (IOP Publishing Ltd, 2015)
    We generalize the orthogonally transitive (OT) G₂ spike solution to the non-OT G₂ case. This is achieved by applying Geroch's transformation on a Kasner seed. The new solution contains two more parameters than the OT G₂ ...
