The St Andrews Centre for Higher Education Research currently consists of staff across 17 Schools and six central University units. The Centre aims to facilitate cross-departmental collaboration in higher education research. CHER brings together staff interested in conducting evidence-based higher education research to inform local, national and international policy and practice, and to promote a reflective, analytical view of Higher Education activities.

  • Role-meanings as a critical factor in understanding doctor managers’ identity work and different role identities 

    Cascón-Pereira, Rosalía; Chillas, Shiona Allison; Hallier, Jerry (2016-12) - Journal article
    This study examines “identity work” among hybrid doctor-managers (DMs) in the Spanish National Health System to make sense of their managerial roles. In particular, the meanings underlying DMs experience of their hybrid ...
  • Open population maximum likelihood spatial capture-recapture 

    Glennie, Richard; Borchers, David Louis; Murchie, Matthew; Harmsen, Bart; Foster, Rebecca (2017-09-04) - Journal article
    Open population capture-recapture models are widely used to estimate population demographics and abundance over time. Bayesian methods exist to incorporate open population modelling with spatial capture-recapture, allowing ...
  • Green light-excitable Ce-doped nitridomagnesoaluminate Sr[Mg2Al2N4] phosphor for white light-emitting diodes 

    Leaño, Jr., Julius; Lin, Shing-Ying; Lazarowska, Agata; Mahlik, Sebastian; Grinberg, Marek; Liang, Chaolun; Zhou, Wuzong; Molokeev, Maxim; Atuchin, Victor; Tsai, Yi-Ting; Lin, Chun Che; Sheu, Hwo-Shuenn; Liu, Ru-Shi (2016-10-11) - Journal article
    A Ce3+-doped nitrodoagnesoaluminate Sr[Mg2Al2N4] phosphor was prepared from all-nitride precur- sors using gas pressure sintering method. The effective excitation by green light (510 nm) that revealed a broad emission from ...
  • Ultra-small photoluminescent silicon-carbide nanocrystals by atmospheric-pressure plasmas 

    Askari, Sadegh; Ul Haq, Atta; Macias-Montero, Manuel; Levchenko, Igor; Yu, Fengjiao; Zhou, Wuzong; Ostrikov, Kostya (Ken); Maguire, Paul; Svrcek, Vladimir; Mariotti, Davide (2016-10-21) - Journal article
    Highly size-controllable synthesis of free-standing perfectly crys- talline silicon carbide nanocrystals has been achieved for the first time through a plasma-based bottom-up process. This low-cost, scalable, ligand-free ...
  • Paramagnetic NMR of phenolic oxime copper complexes: a joint experimental and density functional study 

    Buehl, Michael; Ashbrook, Sharon Elizabeth Marie; Dawson, Daniel McLean; Doyle, Rachel; Hrobarik, Peter; Kaupp, Martin; Smellie, Iain Archie (2016-10-17) - Journal article
    1H and 13C pNMR properties of bis(salicylaldoximato)copper(II) were studied in the solid state using magic-angle-spinning NMR spectroscopy and, for the isolated complex and selected oligomers, using density-functional ...
