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

  • Difluorocarbene generation from TMSCF3 : kinetics and mechanism of NaI-mediated and Si-induced anionic chain reactions 

    García-Domínguez, Andrés; West, Thomas H.; Primozic, Johann J.; Grant, Katie M.; Johnston, Craig P.; Cumming, Grant G.; Leach, Andrew G.; Lloyd-Jones, Guy C. (2020-08-26) - Journal article
    The mechanism of CF2 transfer from TMSCF3 ( 1 ), mediated by TBAT (2–12 mol %) or by NaI (5–20 mol %), has been investigated by in situ/stopped-flow 19F NMR spectroscopic analysis of the kinetics of alkene difluorocyclopropanation ...
  • Anomalous out-of-equilibrium dynamics in the spin-ice material Dy2Ti2O7 under moderate magnetic fields 

    Guruciaga, P. C.; Pili, L.; Boyeras, S.; Slobinsky, D.; Grigera, S. A.; Borzi, R. A. (2020-07-27) - Journal article
    We study experimentally and numerically the dynamics of the spin ice material Dy2Ti2O7 in the low temperature (T) and moderate magnetic field (B) regime (T ∈ [0.1, 1.7]  K, B ∈ [0, 0.3]  T). Our objective is to understand ...
  • Doing interprofessional research in the COVID-19 era : a discussion paper 

    Sy, Michael; O'Leary, Noreen; Nagraj, Shobhana; El-Awaisi, Alla; O'Carroll, Veronica; Xyrichis, Andreas (2020) - Journal article
    The COVID-19 pandemic, and ensuing physical distancing measures, poses challenges for researchers in the field of interprofessional care. Pandemic management has highlighted the centrality of interprofessional working to ...
  • Standards of cohesion and coherence : evidence from early readers 

    Lyons, Michael A. (2020-07-27) - Journal article
    What can we know about the standards of cohesion and coherence held by the authors of ancient Israelite texts? If we recognize the fact that when we read we may be imposing our modern conventions on ancient literature, ...
  • Standards of (in)coherence in ancient Jewish literature 

    Teeter, David Andrew; Tooman, William (2020-07-27) - Journal article
    In this article, we sketch an anatomy of issues and decisions that must be navigated in any attempt to understand coherence and incoherence in ancient Jewish literature, including: the meaning of »coherence,« its relationship ...
