Price and Values Impact Renewable Energy Support

Keri Phillips
The survey comprised demographic items and measures to assess both political and values orientations. These were followed by contingent choice questions to assess participants’ support for the 50% RET at eight cost amounts. This study investigated how projected electricity prices and personal values influence public support for a 50% renewable energy target (RET) in Australia. In an online experiment, 404 participants rated their support for a 50% RET across eight projected increases in their quarterly...

The NSW Women's Health Sector Model of Service Delivery

Jacqueline Schroeder,
Background and introduction The women's health sector (WHS) was established in the early 1970s, at a time when the state and the women's health movement (WHM) shared common goals for advancing women's health. The early 2000s, however, ushered in a new era with the adoption by the state of New Public Management (NPM) principles and values more akin to the private sector. The early WHM challenged the treatment of women by medical professions, claiming it...

The Canons Database

Jason Stoessel, Alana Blackburn & Denis Collins
This research tool was developed by Dr Denis Collins, University of Queensland, and Dr Jason Stoessel, University of New England, as part of an Australian Research Council Discovery Project (DP150102135) “Canonic techniques and musical change, c.1330–c.1530" from 2015 to 2018. Our goal has been to collect and classify every canon that survived in musical sources as late as 1530. Canon is defined here in the broadest sense as a polyphonic structure that results from one...

Farmers, voluntary stewardship programs, and collaborative natural resource governance in rural Australia

Andrew Lawson
Qualitative, semi-structured interviews and surveys of Australian 23 farmers involved in voluntary stewardship programs. Qualitative, semi-structured interviews of 7 non-farmer stakeholders (animal welfare and environmental NGOs, Regional NRM body, government, researchers). Despite large financial investments by governments and farmers, as well as significant inputs of time, effort and goodwill, the ecological, social and productive capacity of the Australian rural environment is under threat. The nature of environmental problems, the limited capacity of rural communities and...

Dataset for Prompting Help-Seeking to Reduce Psychological Distress: A Randomized Controlled Trial of an Internet Intervention

John Malouff
Many individuals who experience persistent problems with anxiety or depression do not seek treatment. The aim of this randomized controlled trial was to test the efficacy of a brief online social-cognitive intervention designed to increase help-seeking behavior and decrease psychological distress. The trial involving randomly assigning a distressed sample of 276 participants (151 females, 123 males, 2 others) aged 18-77 years (M = 36.64, SD = 13.08) either to a modeling and vicarious reinforcement condition...

Eye movements and implicit source memory

Inés Antón-Méndez & Andrew Talk
During source memory studies, knowledge of some detail about the context of a previously experienced item or event is tested. Here, participants attended to different objects presented at different quadrants on a screen. In a later test phase, a single object was presented in all four quadrants, and participants verbally reported whether the object was new or previously seen (item recognition), and if it was previously seen, they indicated the original screen location (source memory...

Unsuccessful introduced biocontrol agents can act as pollinators of invasive weeds: Bitou Bush (Chrysanthemoides monilifera ssp. rotundata) as an example

Caroline Gross, JD Whitehead, C Silveira de Souza & D Mackay
The extent of self-compatibility and reliance on pollinators for seed-set are critical determinants of reproductive success in invasive plant species. Seed herbivores are commonly used as biocontrol agents but may also act as flower visitors, potentially resulting in pollination. However, such contrasting or potentially counterproductive interaction effects are rarely considered or evaluated for biological control programs. We investigated the breeding system and pollinators of Bitou Bush (Chrysanthemoides monilifera ssp. rotundata), an invasive species in Australia...

Intended and Taught GNH-Infused Curriculum in Secondary Schools of Thimphu and Samtse Districts, Bhutan: A Mixed Methods School Effectiveness Research

Pema Thinley
Quantitative data were gathered using a 6-point Likert-scale questionnaire from 22 government secondary schools of Thimphu and Samtse districts, Bhutan comprising 202 teachers.

Data were collected from the secondary school teachers using tools such as survey and interviews.

Measures of eastern quoll vocalisations extracted using PRAAT

Annalie Dorph & Paul McDonald
Defining an acoustic repertoire is essential to understanding vocal signalling and communicative interactions within a species. Currently, quantitative and statistical definition is lacking for the vocalisations of many dasyurids, an important group of small to medium-sized marsupials from Australasia that includes the eastern quoll (Dasyurus viverrinus), a species of conservation concern. Beyond generating a better understanding of this species' social interactions, determining an acoustic repertoire will further improve detection rates and inference of vocalisations gathered...

Biting mechanics determines craniofacial morphology among extant diprotodont herbivores: Dietary predictions for the giant extinct short-faced kangaroo, Simosthenurus occidentalis.

Dave Mitchell
Larger herbivores can act as keystone species which strongly influence their communities. During the Pliocene and Pleistocene, Australia was dominated by a number of large to gigantic marsupial herbivore taxa. Many of these have been understudied quantitatively with regards to their ecology; and identifying the diet of these species will improve our understanding of not only their ecologies, but also of past environments. Recent research has found that cranial morphology among kangaroos and wallabies corresponds...

Adaptive Learning and Forgetting in an Unconventional Experimental Routine

Elizabeth Kyonka
Learning and forgetting were assessed concurrently in two experiments that involved the same unconventional routine. The schedule of reinforcement changed every session. Sessions were run back-to-back with a 23-hour mid-session break such that in a single visit to the testing chamber, the subject completed the second half of one session and the first half of the next. The beginning of a new session was either signaled or unsignaled. Experiment 1 involved concurrent variable interval-variable interval...

Recasts and output-only prompts, individual learner factors and short-term EFL learning

Huifang Li
This study investigated the effects of recasts and output-only prompts (i.e., clarification requests, elicitations, and repetitions) on short-term EFL learning regarding three learner factors (i.e., learner level, language anxiety, and orientation to correction). Ninety Mandarin-speaking learners at a Chinese university were randomly assigned to one of two experimental groups or a control group. While all the learners completed the pre-/posttests and had their weekly English lessons as usual, only the learners in the experimental groups...
