  • Grimsdottir, Elsa; Edvardsson, Ingi Runar (SAGE Publications, 2018-10)
    The aim of this article is to present findings on knowledge management (KM) and knowledge creation, as well as open innovation in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Iceland. Two SME company case studies are presented in the form of a case ...
  • McKelvey, Maureen; Saemundsson, Rognvaldur; Zaring, Olof (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2018-01-19)
    This article focuses upon issues that public policy makers need to address, when trying to stimulate world-leading research into new areas, which are potentially also valuable to solving societal challenges. Our analysis helps contribute to the theoretical ...
  • Butwin, Mary (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2019-08-27)
    Dust is an important component of the earth-atmosphere system, affecting amongst other things air quality, vegetation, infrastructure, animal and human health. Iceland produces a large amount of dust, with dust storms reported frequently especially ...
  • Gopalan, Giridhar Raja (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2019-08)
    The purpose of this thesis is to develop spatio-temporal statistical models for glaciology, using the Bayesian hierarchical framework. Specifically, the process level is modeled as a time series of computer simulator outputs (i.e., from a numerical ...

(American Society for Microbiology, 2018-09-26)
    Vaccination with pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs) disrupts the pneumococcal population. Our aim was to determine the impact of the 10-valent PCV on the serotypes, genetic lineages, and antimicrobial susceptibility of pneumococci isolated from ...
  • Ísleifsson, Sumarliði R. (Háskólaútgáfan, Sagnfræðistofnun Háskóla Íslands, 2015)
    Þessi bók, Tvær eyjar á jaðrinum. Ímyndir Íslands og Grænlands frá miðöldum til miðrar 19. aldar, fjallar um ytri ímyndir eða framandleika Íslands og Grænlands, frá því um 1100 og fram um 1850. Ímyndafræðin fjalla ekki síst um það hvernig ímyndir landa ...
  • Aðalsteinsdóttir, Auður (Háskóli Íslands, Hugvísindasvið, Íslensku- og menningardeild, 2016-02)
    Í þessari ritgerð er fjallað um vald ritdómara og virkni ritdóma á íslensku bókmenntasviði sem og í alþjóðlegu samhengi, allt frá upphafi fjölmiðlunar til dagsins í dag. Sýnt er fram á að vald ritdómarans er ætíð ótraust og að hann á sífellt á hættu ...
  • Remina, Dilixiati (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2019-03)
    The pigment producing melanocytes are derived from the neural crest cells and form precursor cells called melanoblasts. These cells proliferate and migrate to their destination in skin, hair and other organs where they differentiate into melanocytes ...
  • Gestsdóttir, Hildur (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of History and Philosophy, 2014)
    Osteoarthritis has been intensively studied within the field of palaeopathology. For decades there was assumed to be a direct link between activity and the development of osteoarthritis, and this was reflected in the work which was carried out, with ...

    We use the IllustrisTNG (TNG) cosmological simulations to provide theoretical expectations for the dark matter mass fractions (DMFs) and circular velocity profiles of galaxies. TNG predicts flat circular velocity curves for z = 0 Milky Way (MW)-like ...
