    Many organizations attribute their success to the use of servant leadership. However, very few studies have been conducted with the emphasis of understanding what it is like for people to work in servant leadership organizations and how it is practiced. ...

    The 170 km South Iceland Seismic Tomography (SIST) profile extends from the west and across the Mid‐Atlantic Ridge spreading center in the Western Volcanic Zone and continues obliquely through the transform zone (the South Iceland Seismic Zone) to the ...
  • Ólafsdóttir, Elín Ásta; Erlingsson, Sigurdur; Bessason, Bjarni (Canadian Science Publishing, 2018-02)
    Multichannel analysis of surface waves (MASW) is a fast, low-cost, and environmentally friendly technique to estimate shear wave velocity profiles of soil sites. This paper introduces a new open-source software, MASWaves, for processing and analysing ...

    The purpose of this study was to develop a pharmaceutical formulation containing fatty acid extract rich in free omega-3 fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid for topical use. Although the health benefits of cod liver oil ...
  • Gulevich, D. R.; Yudin, D.; Skryabin, D. V.; Iorsh, Ivan; Shelykh, Ivan (IEEE, 2017-05)
    We study discrete nonlinear edge excitations of polaritonic kagome lattice. We show that when nontrivial topological phase of polaritons is realized, the kagome lattice permits propagation of bright solitons formed from topological edge states.
  • Kozin, Valerii; Shelykh, Ivan; Nalitov, Anton; Iorsh, Ivan (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-09-10)
    The Chern insulator phase is shown to emerge in two-dimensional arrays of polariton rings where time-reversal symmetry is broken due to the application of an out-of-plane magnetic field. The interplay of Zeeman splitting with the photonic analog of ...
  • de la Barre, Suzanne; Maher, Patrick; Dawson, Jackie; Hillmer-Pegram, Kevin; Huijbens, Edward; Lamers, Machiel; Liggett, Daniela; Müller, Dieter; Pashkevich, Albina; Stewart, Emma (Co-Action Publishing, 2016-03-01)
    The Arctic is affected by global environmental change and also by diverse interests from many economic sectors and industries. Over the last decade, various actors have attempted to explore the options for setting up integrated and comprehensive ...
  • Bjarnason, Thoroddur; Guðmundsson, Birgir; Ólafsson, Kjartan (SAGE Publications, 2010-12-17)
    The adolescent production of blogs has created an adolescent public sphere that transcends both intimate circles of friends and the adolescent communities of specific schools or neighborhoods. Almost all 15-16 year old adolescents in Iceland regularly ...
  • Nilsson, Annika E.; Carson, Marcus; Cost, Douglas S.; Forbes, Bruce C.; Haavisto, Riina; Karlsdottir, Anna; Larsen, Joan Nymand; Paasche, Øyvind; Sarkki, Simo; Larsen, Sanne Vammen; Pelyasov, Alexander (Informa UK Limited, 2019-08-09)
    Participatory scenario methodologies are increasingly used for studying possible future developments in the Arctic. They have the potential to contribute to several high-priority tasks for Arctic research, such as integration of indigenous and local ...
  • Magnússon, Gunnlaugur (Mälardalen University, School of Education, Culture and Communication, Educational Sciences and Mathematics., 2015)
    This thesis has two overarching aims. The first is to generate further knowledge about Swedish independent schools, specifically regarding the organisation and provision of special support and how these relate to special educational traditions and ...
