NEW to Massey Research Online!

January 6, 2014

Retirement, landslides and yoghurt are all among the content recently added to Massey Research Online.

Welcome to the first in a regular series of posts showcasing new and noteworthy additions to Massey Research Online (MRO), Massey University’s institutional repository – an online, open access collection of Massey University’s research. This time around we have a variety of content from across most of the Colleges (Science, Business and Humanities & Social Sciences) and we’re highlighting content types other than the theses MRO is well known for, such as books, working papers, articles and conference proceedings. This high calibre research comes from both emerging researchers as well as more established scholars.

New book

We haven’t had a book added in quite some time. This is an unpublished book.
