Quality of Research Practice: Face validity questionnaire responses

Emelie Fröberg, Uno Fors, Udo Zander, Gunnar H Nilsson & Pär Mårtensson
There are few acknowledged quality standards for research practice and evaluation, even though universities are increasingly judged on research impact. This dataset contains questionnaire responses from 42 senior researchers working (within 18 different departments) at three major universities in Sweden about the importance of 32 defined criteria based on four main areas (credible, contributory, communicable, and conforming) describing indicators of research practice quality.

Database oriented studies of Swedish child language development

Sven Strömqvist
The 50 computerized transcription files contained in this first release of the Swedish corpus relate to the project 'Database oriented studies of Swedish child language development', in which the language development in four monolingual Swedish children is analysed. The four children under study grow up in middle-class families on the west coast of Sweden. The families speak standard Swedish with a modest touch of the regional variant. The recorded material relates to a wide range...

Media panel 1980

Karl Erik Rosengren, Sven Windahl, Ulla Johnsson-Smaragdi, Ingrid Höjerback & Inga Sonesson
The Media Panel Program (MPP) is located at the University of Lund in Sweden. It is a long-term research program focused on basic aspects of the mass media use by Swedish children, adolescents and young adults, as well as on the causes, consequences and effects of that media use. The program was founded by professors Karl Erik Rosengren and Sven Windahl in 1975, after a series of preliminary studies. Since 1995, the program has been...

Swedish government official investigators: Investigation initiatives

Lars Strömberg
The main purpose of the project ´Swedish government official reports´ was to shed light on the functions of the government commissions and their importance for policy creation, and the central point was to examine commissions closed during the period 1968-1973. The purpose of this subproject was mainly to map who took the initiative to set up the government commission.

Learning to Live with Ticks? The Role of Exposure and Risk Perceptions in Protective Behaviour Against Tick-Borne Diseases

Daniel Slunge
The purpose of this study is to analyse the role of risk perceptions and exposure for protective behaviour against tick bites and the related diseases Lyme borreliosis (LB) and tick-borne encephalitis (TBE), both of which are growing health concerns. We use data from a national survey in Sweden with respondents in geographical areas with substantial differences in both abundance of ticks and incidence of LB and TBE. We find that the share of respondents who...

Weak support for a U-shaped pattern between societal gender equality and fertility when comparing societies across time

Martin Kolk
Abstract: A number of recent theories in demography suggest a U-shaped relationship between gender equality and fertility. Fertility is theorized to be high in societies with low levels of gender equality, as well as societies with high gender equality, with lower fertility in a transition phase. This study estimates the relationship between gender equality (as operationalized through female political empowerment) and fertility within societies over time, using yearly information on gender equality and fertility for...

Education, religious practice and gender ideology in Turkey

İlknur Yüksel-Kaptanoğlu & Eva Bernhardt
In this paper we explore how education and religious practice influence gender ideology in Turkey, using survey data for 2003, 2008 and 2013. The two concepts of “male authority” and “female autonomy” are used as proxies for gender ideology, taking advantage of a set of statements intended to capture gender role attitudes among ever-married women 15-49 years. They were constructed using factor analysis. We then analyzed how attitudes to male authority and female autonomy differ...

För detta syfte hämtas data från databasen POPLINK, som finns vid CEDAR, avdelningen för Demografiska databasen...

ICOS Ecosystem Instructions for Storage Fluxes Measurements (CO2, H2O, CH4 and N2O)

Giacomo Nicolini & Dario Papale
The storage flux term, added to the turbulent flux estimated by the Eddy Covariance (EC) system, allows for a closer quantification of the true net ecosystem exchange (NEE) of a given scalar (e.g. CO2, H2O, CH4, N2O, temperature) The storage flux of a given scalar C is given by the vertical integration of the scalar rate of change within the control volume. It is measured by sampling a number of points distributed between the ground...

ICOS Ecosystem Instructions for Site Characterization Measurements in Forest

Bert Gielen, Maarten Op De Beeck & Dario Papale
This document describes the measurements to perform at the beginning of the ICOS forest station operation in order to characterize the site investigated. These characterization measurements include (i) measurements of species presence to characterize the forest in terms of botanical composition, (ii) measurements of Aboveground Biomass and (iii) of the Green Area Index.

ICOS Ecosystem Instructions for Ancillary Vegetation Measurements in Forest

Bert Gielen, Maarten Op De Beeck & Dario Papale
This document describes the measurement of ancillary vegetation variables at ICOS ecosystem stations in forests. These variables are Green Area Index (GAI), Aboveground Biomass (AGB), and litter biomass. In summary, they are measured for the following aims and with the following methods: - GAI is measured to explain seasonal variation in ecosystem-atmosphere fluxes and is measured indirectly with Digital Hemispherical Photography (DHP) or a linear ceptometer. The choice of method depends on the GAI (seasonal...
