Strengthening Library connections in Moodle.

Presentation / Conference
Ennis, L., & Bruce, S. (2017, April)
Strengthening Library connections in Moodle. Presented at MoodleMoot Ireland and UK 2017, London
The reading list is traditionally recognised as a collation of printed materials or a list of titles in a module descriptor, but a transition from printed collation to digital...

Assessing confidence in the Chinese learner.

Presentation / Conference
Bruce, S. D. (2004, January)
Assessing confidence in the Chinese learner. Paper presented at 8th CAA Conference, Loughborough: Loughborough University, Loughborough University, Loughborough, United Kingdom
This short paper firstly examines the cultural issues of confidence-based assessment by observing a Chinese learner group completing a multiple choice test in English as a For...

An analytical derivation of a popular approximation of the Voigt function for quantification of NMR spectra.

Journal Article
Bruce, S. D., Higinbotham, J., Marshall, I. & Beswick, P. H. (1999)
An analytical derivation of a popular approximation of the Voigt function for quantification of NMR spectra. Journal of magnetic resonance. 142, 57-63. doi:10.1006/jmre.1999.1911. ISSN 1090-7807
The approximation of the Voigt line shape by the linear summation of Lorentzian and Gaussian line shapes of equal width is well documented and has proved to be a useful functi...

Choice of spectroscopic line shape model affects metabolite peak areas and area ratios.

Journal Article
Marshall, I., Bruce, S. D., Higinbotham, J., MacLullich, A., Wardlaw, J. M., Ferguson, K. J. & Seckl, J. (1999)
Choice of spectroscopic line shape model affects metabolite peak areas and area ratios. Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. 44, 646-649. doi:10.1002/1522-2594(200010)44:43.0.CO;2-0. ISSN 0740-3194
The use of Lorentzian model lineshapes leads to systematic errors in the quantification of in vivo (1)H NMR spectra. Experimental lineshapes are better modeled by the Voigt (m...

Journal Article
Marshall, I., Higinbotham, J., Bruce, S. D. & Freise, A. (1996)
Use of Voigt line shape for quantification of in Vivo ‘H spectra. Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. 37, 651-657. doi:10.1002/mrm.1910370504. ISSN 0740-3194
Quantification of NMR visible metabolites by spectral modeling usually assumes a Lorentzian or Gaussian lineshape, despite the fact that experimental lineshapes are neither. T...
