The Scholar's Community

 

The Scholars Community is a community open to all faculty and staff at Northern Illinois University. Content in this community is limited to materials that have gone through the peer-review process. Materials submitted to the Scholars’ Community may also be submitted to relevant departmental collections as well. Submissions to the Scholars’ Community will be screened by a small group from the Library faculty from time to time to insure that submissions are in compliance with the Scholars’ Community guidelines.

  • Leal-Bautista, Rosa Ma.; Lenczewski, Melissa; Morgan, Cheyenne; Gahala, Amy; McLain, Jean E. (Journal of Environmental Protection, 2013-11)
    The Yucatan Peninsula’s groundwater is experiencing increases in degradation due to swelling population and tourism; yet little is known about sources and transport of contaminants in drinking water supplies. The karst ...
  • Cardwell, Matthew; Ye, Zhuan (SCIRP, 2013-10-01)
    We prove some value-distribution results for a class of L-functions with rational moving targets. The class contains Selberg class, as well as the Riemann-zeta function.
  • Rothschild, Bruce M.; Bryant, Bill; Hubbard, Christopher; Tuxhorn, Kent; Penn Kilgore, Ginny; Martin, Larry; Naples, Virginia (PLOS One, 2013-09-04)
    Scratches on bones have routinely been attributed to tooth marks (a predominantly untested speculation), ignoring the effects of claws, perhaps because of the general assumption that claws are too soft to damage bone. ...
  • Davidson, Allyson Fry; Benson, James D.; Higgins, Adam Z. (BioMed Central, 2014-03-20)
    Background Simple and effective cryopreservation of human oocytes would have an enormous impact on the financial and ethical constraints of human assisted reproduction. Recently, studies have demonstrated the potential ...
  • King, B.H.; Cooper, J.L.; Burgess IV, E.R. (Oxford Unifersity Press, 2013-04-09)
    Once a Urolepis rufipes male mounted, the female beat her antennae against his mouth and clypeus. Immediately after he swept his antennae rapidly downward and extruded his mouthparts, her abdomen rose as she opened her ...

    The vast majority of microbial life remains uncatalogued due to the inability to cultivate these organisms in the laboratory. This “microbial dark matter” represents a substantial portion of the tree of life and of the ...
  • Cotton, Joseph L.; Wysocki, William P.; Clark, Lynn G.; Kelchner, Scot A.; Pires, J. Chris; Edger, Patrick P.; Mayfield-Jones, Dustin; Duvall, Melvin R. (BMC Plant Biology, 2015-07-11)
    Background Plastome sequences for 18 species of the PACMAD grasses (subfamilies Panicoideae, Aristidoideae, Chloridoideae, Micrairoideae, Arundinoideae, Danthonioideae) were analyzed phylogenomically. Next generation ...
  • Jackson, David A.; Elsawa, Sherine F. (Biomolecules, 2015-01-21)
    mmunoglobulins are molecules produced by activated B cells and plasma cells in response to exposure to antigens. Upon antigen exposure, these molecules are secreted allowing the immune system to recognize and effectively ...
  • King, Richard (PLOS One, 2016-01-05)
    Body size, and, by extension, growth has impacts on physiology, survival, attainment of sexual maturity, fecundity, generation time, and population dynamics, especially in ectotherm animals that often exhibit extensive ...
  • Wysocki, William P.; Ruiz-Sanchez, Eduardo; Duvall, Melvin R.; Yin, Yanbin (BMC Genomics, 2016-05-20)
    Background Next-generation sequencing now allows for total RNA extracts to be sequenced in non-model organisms such as bamboos, an economically and ecologically important group of grasses. Bamboos are divided into three ...
  • Ashley, Walker S.; Strader, Stephen M. (American Meteorological Society, 2016-06-03)
    Tornado disasters and their potential are a product of both hazard risk and underlying physical and social vulnerabilities. This investigation appraises exposure, which is an important component and driver of vulnerability, ...
  • Shibata, Tomoyuki; Meng, Can; Umoren, Josephine; West, Heidi (International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2016-03-25)
    Currently, there are no set standards or quantitative guidelines available in the U.S. for arsenic levels in rice cereal, one of the most common first solid foods for infants. The objective of this study was to evaluate ...
  • Calvo, Ana M.; Cary, Jeffrey W. (Frontiers Media, 2015-02-16)
    Fungal secondary metabolism and morphological development have been shown to be intimately associated at the genetic level. Much of the literature has focused on the co-regulation of secondary metabolite production (e.g., ...
  • Kasambira Fannin, D., 1974-- (Clinical Archives of Communicative Disorders, 2017-12-20)
    Purpose: Eight language and autism related journals published between 1993 and 2017 were analyzed to identify trends in the inclusion of underrepresented populations in empirical studies with social skill, play, joint ...
  • Andorf, M.; Lebedev, V.; Piot, P.; Ruan, J. (2017-12-20)
    Optical stochastic cooling (OSC) is expected to enable fast cooling of dense particle beams. Transition from microwave to optical frequencies enables an achievement of stochastic cooling rates which are orders of magnitude ...
  • Parness, Jeffrey A. (1990)
    Differences in the establishment and empowerment of American judicial systems should trigger variations in the ways in which cases are handled and law is practiced. Such differences are found in the sections of state ...
  • Parness, Jeffrey A. (1990)
    The recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Webster v. Reproductive Health Services, as well as recent advances in our understanding of human reproduction, has prompted new dialogue on the legal status of the unborn and on ...
  • Parness, Jeffrey A. (1993)
    It is becoming increasingly difficult to determine the legal parentage of newborns and infants. Although it may be clear who bore a child, whose sperm was involved in conception, to whom a new mother was married at the ...
  • Parness, Jeffrey A. (2003)
    This paper explores contemporary American laws on paternity as of the time of the live birth of a child conceived through sexual intercourse. In doing so it necessarily examines the roles of biological ties in all ...
