• #### Effective Judgmental Forecasting in the Context of Fashion Products ﻿

(Elsevier, 2015-02-28)
We study the conditions that influence judgmental forecasting effectiveness when predicting demand in the context of fashion products. Human judgment is of practical importance in this setting. Our goal is to investigate ...
• #### An Effective Method of Accelerating Bose Gases Using Magnetic Coils ﻿

(IOP Publishing, 2014-07-23)
Based on the experimental device which is a non-uniform magnetic field to trap an atom, we show how to obtain a certain velocity of a Bose gas by controlling the magnetic coils. By comparing the relationship of different ...
• #### The effective non-linear properties of a composite coating and a composite sandwich layer ﻿

(Elsevier, 2016-02-18)
Hashin-Shtrikman based bounds and estimates are obtained for the linear and non-linear effective properties of composites in the form of a thin coating or sandwich layer. It is assumed that the thickness of the layer is ...
• #### Effective recruitment of participants to a phase I study using the internet and publicity releases through charities and patient organisations: analysis of the Adaptive study of IL-2 dose on regulatory T cells in type 1 diabetes (DILT1D) ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2015-03-11)
Background: A barrier to the successful development of new disease treatments is the timely recruitment of participants to experimental medicine studies that are primarily designed to investigate biological mechanisms ...
• #### Effective reinforcement learning following cerebellar damage requires a balance between exploration and motor noise ﻿

(Oxford University Press, 2015-12-01)
Reinforcement and error-based processes are essential for motor learning, with the cerebellum thought to be required only for the error-based mechanism. Here we examined learning and retention of a reaching skill under ...
• #### Effective teleconferencing: An international investigation of the factors influencing the effectiveness of distributed meetings ﻿

(Science Target, 2015-07-05)
With businesses becoming global in their reach, the use of distributed meetings and associated conferencing technologies is at the core of their successful and efficient operation. However, the actual effectiveness of these ...
• #### Effective vaccination against rabies in puppies in rabies endemic regions ﻿

(BMJ Group, 2015)
In rabies endemic regions, a proportionally higher incidence of rabies is often reported in dogs younger than 12 months of age, which includes puppies less than 3 months of age; this presents a serious risk to public health. ...
• #### Effectively Settling SMEs financing Difficulty with Warehouse Receipt-a Case from China ﻿

(Association of Cambridge Studies, 2016)
SMEs financing is a difficult problem in the world, and it is more difficult in China. The highlight of our paper is that it offers a route which could settle the difficult problem but loan on credit. There are three ...
• #### Effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a physical activity loyalty scheme for behaviour change maintenance: a cluster randomised controlled trial ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2016-07-22)
${\bf Background:}$ Increasing physical activity in the workplace can provide employee physical and mental health benefits, and employer economic benefits through reduced absenteeism and increased productivity. The workplace ...
• #### Effectiveness of a behavioural intervention to prevent excessive weight gain during infancy (The Baby Milk Trial): study protocol for a randomised controlled trial ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2015-10-06)
Background Infancy is a period of rapid growth and habit formation and hence could be a critical period for obesity prevention. Excess weight gain during infancy is associated with later obesity and formula-fed babies ...
• #### Effectiveness of computer-tailored Smoking Cessation Advice in Primary Care (ESCAPE): a Randomised Trial ﻿

(2008-04-29)
Abstract Background Smoking remains a major public health problem; developing effective interventions to encourage more quit attempts, and to improve the success rate of self-quit attempts, is essential to reduce the numbers ...
• #### The Effectiveness of EU law: Insights from the EU Legal Framework on Asset Confiscation ﻿

(Brill, 2016)
Based on an institutional and legal mapping of the field across Europe, this article explores the different barriers to the effectiveness of the EU’s regime on the recovery and confiscation of proceeds of crime. The aim ...
• #### The Effectiveness of Full Actinide Recycle as a Nuclear Waste Management Strategy when Implemented over a Limited Timeframe – Part I: Uranium Fuel Cycle ﻿

(Elsevier, 2015-08-14)
