Milestone for University research as Dr Gladwin’s study becomes 3,000th submission

RESEARCH at the University of Chichester reached a significant milestone this month after one study became the 3,000th piece of research to be archived in its repository.

The landmark figure was achieved by Dr Thomas Gladwin, a senior lecturer in Psychology, on submitting his 27th item to ChiPrints. The open access repository, found at www.eprints.chi.ac.uk, has collated research papers and academic outputs produced by University staff since 2012.

Clinical cognitive neuroscience specialist Dr Gladwin, who was awarded a £20 Amazon voucher, said: “I’m very thankful to the University for allowing me time to work on research, which is so important to have. I’ll use the money to purchase a book on machine learning, which was something of a hobby that might just become the next area of my research.”

Dr Gladwin is also the University’s Chair of the Research Ethics Committee, which provides guidance to staff and students on the ethical conduct of research. His paper, which reached the 3,000-figure landmark, presented a series of experiments on the measurement of anticipatory attentional biases related to risky drinking.

University Vice-Chancellor Professor Jane Longmore, handing over the prize, said: “Thomas contributes several items to ChiPrints each year, and his entries are always detailed and timely, and his profile admirably complete. He is an academic citizen whom, like many others at Chichester, we rightfully celebrate for their dedication to undertaking diverse research which benefits our society.”

Dr Gladwin’s papers on ChiPrints are a subset of his research, with a full bibliography available at www.tegladwin.com. The details and abstract of his most recent paper, Predictive Cues and Spatial Attentional Bias for Alcohol, can be found at www.eprints.chi.ac.uk/4961.
