    Functioning and use of an institutional repository

    Get PDF
    In August 2005, Ifremer launched its institutional repository: Archimer. Today, Archimer provides free access, on the Internet, to more than 5,000 documents, including more than 80 % of the publications co-written by Ifremer since the creation of the repository. Following a reminder of the publication harvesting and recording methods, this document assesses the use of Archimer. It analyses, amongst others, the progression of the number of interrogations and the differences observed between the uses of the different types of works (publication, thesis, internal reports...). This study also demonstrates the predominance of the search engine Google in the access to the documents and underlines its consequences in terms of Internet visibility

    Mary Schweitzer Papers - Accession 1490

    Get PDF
    The Mary Schweitzer Papers consists of publications, a scrapbook, collections of professional papers, and an academic publication/thesis belonging to Dr. Mary Schweitzer, Winthrop Anthropology Professor. Dr. Schweitzer is a cultural anthropologist who came to Winthrop in 1978 and retired from fulltime teaching in 2000. She was also a visiting professor at the American University – Central Asia in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan (2002-03 and 2004-05) and in the Aga Khan (Muslim-Ismaili) Humanities Project in Dushanbe, Tajikistan (2006). She has received Fulbright awards for travel, study and teaching in Colombia, South America (1984), India (1988), and Albania (2001) and traveled extensively in China, Peru, Bulgaria, Turkey, and Mexico. The list of her published articles and presentations is long, including five presentations at meetings of the American Anthropological Association from 1976 to 1991.https://digitalcommons.winthrop.edu/manuscriptcollection_findingaids/2449/thumbnail.jp

    A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW OF THESIS ON LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS OF INDIVIDUALS WITH AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER

    Get PDF
    This study is a content analysis study in which theses indexed in YÖK National Thesis Center of Turkey about teaching language and communication skills in autism spectrum disorder are examined in terms of various variables. For this purpose, 17 open-access theses were obtained based on an extensive search and examined. The results of the research were arranged according to sub-problems and presented in descriptive form as frequency and percentage tables. This study aims to determine the current trends in the postgraduate thesis written on teaching language and communication skills to individuals with ASD between the years of 2014 and 2019. The postgraduate thesis were analyzed based on previously determined content analysis criteria including year of publication, thesis level, title of thesis supervisor, university, institute, department, research method, participants, number of native and foreign references, location and research subject. When the needs of families with children with autism spectrum disorder or at risk are considered in our country, it is clearly seen how much work is needed and how important these studies are. Supporting teaching practices that take into account the individual differences of individuals with autism, conducting new researches and comparing the results, will develop new perspectives and contribute to the literature.

    Irradiation enhanced decomposition of a nickel-carbon solid solution

    This investigation was performed to determine the effects of room temperature neutron irradiation on the distribution of carbon in a nickel--0.3 wt. % carbon alloy. The experiment consisted of comparing the amount of carbon in solid solution and the internal stresses of both unirradiated and irradiated (10¹³ fn-cm⁻² \u3c ΦF \u3c 10¹⁸ fn-cm⁻²) samples following isochronal anneals between 100ºC and 1200ºC by using the magnetic disaccommodation technique. The results indicate that the amount of carbon remaining in solid solution decreases with increasing neutron dose. At temperatures below 200ºC this is due to the trapping of carbon by mobile irradiation-produced defects. Between 200ºC and 600ºC the formation of metastable carbides is enhanced by the presence of irradiation-produced defects. No differences are observed in irradiated and unirradiated samples above 600ºC --Abstract, page iii

    Magnetostrictive aftereffects in a dilute 50Fe-50Ni-C alloy

    Get PDF
    Crystallographically equivalent interstitial sites are energetically equivalent when the host crystal is free of any fields. This situation is shown in Fig. Pl from which it may be appreciated that the difference of the free energy of the crystal with an interstitial I located in x and y sites, respectively, is equal to zero. This energy equivalence of the various interstitial sites is destroyed when the host crystal is subjected to fields such as strain fields, magnetization fields or a combination of both as may be appreciated from Figs. P2 through P4. In this case, the interstitials will preferentially occupy certain sites. This preferential occupation will lead to anelasticity, magnetic disaccommodation and magnetostrictive aftereffects as will be described later --Preface, page vi

    The morphology of the cellular precipitation reaction in a Pb-3.0 wt% Sn alloy

    Get PDF
    The complete development of the cellular precipitation structure at selected grain boundaries in a Pb-3.0 wt% Sn alloy during aging at 34°C and 23°C was investigated by light microscopy. The cellular structure in this alloy consists of lamellae of solute depleted lead solid solution and lamellae of ß tin precipitate. The cellular precipitation reaction begins by local migration of a grain boundary with concomitant grain boundary precipitation of ß tin. The grain boundary bows around the ß tin grain boundary precipitates which then begin to lengthen in the direction of boundary migration thus forming the precipitate lamellae of the cell. The α\u27 lamellae always preceed the ß tin lamellae. At early stages of cell development, the lamellae may grow cooperatively and an orientation and habit plane relationship between the lamellae forms as the cell structure stabilizes. Since the coherence between the lamellae is weak, the direction of cell growth is not confined to the initial habit plane of the ß tin lamellae --Abstract, page iii
