This is the official institutional research repository for the University of St Andrews. The repository contains electronic theses and research publications including articles, conference proceedings, working papers and some research monographs. It also contains material and publications affiliated to the University and arising from specific projects. Full text content is provided for all research publications in the repository, and wherever possible (following embargoes) for electronic theses.

The University requires submission of an electronic version of theses. For help with electronic thesis deposit see Library webpages on how to submit your electronic copy or contact

The full text of research papers can be submitted to the repository via Pure, the University's research information system. For help see our guide: How to deposit in Pure or contact the Open Access team at

  • Thrombolysis for acute deep vein thrombosis 

    Watson, Lorna; Broderick, Cathryn; Armon, Matthew P. (2016-11-10) - Journal item
    Background: Standard treatment for deep vein thrombosis aims to reduce immediate complications. Use of thrombolysis or clot dissolving drugs could reduce the long-term complications of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) including ...
  • Trace-contrast models for capture-recapture without capture histories 

    Fewster, R. M.; Stevenson, B. C.; Borchers, D. L. (2016-05-26) - Journal article
    Capture-recapture studies increasingly rely upon natural tags that allow animals to be identified by features such as coat markings, DNA profiles, acoustic profiles, or spatial locations. These innovations greatly increase ...
  • A comparison of inferential methods for highly nonlinear state space models in ecology and epidemiology 

    Fasiolo, Matteo; Pya, Natalya; Wood, Simon N. (2016) - Journal article
    Highly nonlinear, chaotic or near chaotic, dynamic models are important in fields such as ecology and epidemiology: for example, pest species and diseases often display highly nonlinear dynamics. However, such models are ...
  • Scanning tunnelling microscopy and spectroscopy of quantum materials 

    Neat, Matthew James (University of St Andrews, 2018-06-27) - Thesis
  • Quantum state and mode profile tomography by the overlap 

    Tiedau, J.; Shchesnovich, V. S.; Mogilevtsev, D.; Ansari, V.; Harder, G.; Bartley, T. J.; Korolkova, N.; Silberhorn, Ch (2018-03-05) - Journal article
    Any measurement scheme involving interference of quantum states of the electromagnetic field necessarily mixes information about the spatiotemporal structure of these fields and quantum states in the recorded data. Weshow ...
