    Nickel (Ni) foam-based symmetric/asymmetric electrochemical supercapacitors benefit from a randomly 3D structured porous geometry that functions as an active material support and as a current collector. The surface composition ...
  • Leahy, Joe; O'Leary, Aisling; Afdhal, Nezam; Gray, Emma; Milligan, Scott; Wehmeyer, Malte H.; Walsh, Cathal (Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2018)
    The use of individual patient data (IPD) in network meta-analysis (NMA) is becoming increasingly popular. However, as most studies do not report IPD, most NMAs are performed using aggregate data for at least some, if not ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2018)
    A variety of research methods and techniques are available to SE researchers, and while several overviews exist, there is neither consistency in the research methods covered nor in the terminology used. Furthermore, ...
  • Lynch, Julie; Prihodova, Lucia; Dunne, Pádraic J.; O'Leary, Caoimhe; Breen, Rachel; Carroll, Áine; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; McMahon, Geraldine; White, Barry (BMJ Publishing Group, 2018)
