A systematic review comparing physiological, perceptual and performance measures between treadmill and overground running

Jayme Miller, Bas Van Hooren, Chris Bishop, Jonathan Buckley, Richard Willy & Joel Fuller
Motorised treadmills are commonly used by researchers, clinicians and athletes to simulate overground running for a variety of different health-related purposes (e.g. exercise tolerance testing, rehabilitation from injury, and athlete training). Treadmill running is advantageous in research and clinical situations as it offers a convenient means of investigating continuous running activity, while allowing consistent control of environmental elements such as surface gradient, running velocity and ambient temperature. However, since running is typically performed overground in...

FAIMS: Field Acquired Information Management Systems Project Archive (2012-2019)

Shawn Ross, Brian Ballsun-Stanton, Adela Sobotkova, Penny Crook & Petra Heřmánková
The Field Acquired Information Management Systems Project (FAIMS), based at Macquarie University, has been developing and deploying a generalised, customisable, open-source platform specifically designed for data capture during field research since 2012. FAIMS’ goals are to: • Increase the efficiency and quality of scientific field data recording; • Promote transparency and reproducibility in support of research integrity; and • Facilitate data interoperability in support of large-scale research. We originally designed our platform, FAIMS Mobile, for...

Dissertation: Asking About Data

Brian Ballsun-Stanton
What is data? That question is the fundamental investigation of this dissertation. I have developed a methodology from social-scientific processes to explore how different people understand the con- cept of data, rather than to rely on my own philosophical intuitions or thought experiments about the “nature” of data. The evidence I have gathered as to different individuals' constructions of data can be used to inform further inquiry of data and the design of information systems....
