KU ScholarWorks is the digital repository of the University of Kansas. It contains scholarly work created by KU faculty, staff and students, as well as material from the University Archives. KU ScholarWorks makes important research and historical items available to a wider audience and helps assure their long-term preservation.

On February 11, 2010 the KU Faculty Senate passed a revised Open Access policy granting the University permission to deposit a copy of their scholarly work in an open access repository-- KU ScholarWorks. For more about the policy, "how to" documents, Q&A, addenda and more, please visit Open Access @ KU.

For information about submitting to KU ScholarWorks please contact Marianne Reed, mreed@ku.edu. For information about KU ScholarWorks in general, please email kuscholarworks@ku.edu.

  • Search for High-energy Neutrinos from Binary Neutron Star Merger GW170817 with ANTARES, IceCube, and the Pierre Auger Observatory 

    ANTARES Collaboration; IceCube Collaboration; The Pierre Auger Collaboration; LIGO Scientific Collaboration; Virgo Collaboration (American Astronomical Society, 2017-12-01)
    The Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo observatories recently discovered gravitational waves from a binary neutron star inspiral. A short gamma-ray burst (GRB) that followed the merger of this binary was also recorded by the ...
  • Multi-messenger Observations of a Binary Neutron Star Merger 

    LIGO Scientific Collaboration; Virgo Collaboration; Fermi GBM; IceCube Collaboration; AstroSat Cadmium Zinc Telluride Imager Team; IPN Collaboration; The Insight-Hxmt Collaboration; ANTARES Collaboration; The Swift Collaboration; AGILE Team; The 1M2H Team; The Dark Energy Camera GW-EM Collaboration; DES Collaboration; DLT40 Collaboration; GRAWITA; ATCA; ASKAP; as Cumbres Observatory Group; OzGrav; DWF; AST3 Collaboration; CAASTRO Collaboration; VINROUGE Collaboration; J-GEM (American Astronomical Society, 2017-10-16)
    On 2017 August 17 a binary neutron star coalescence candidate (later designated GW170817) with merger time 12:41:04 UTC was observed through gravitational waves by the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo detectors. The Fermi ...
  • High-precision, non-invasive anti-microvascular approach via concurrent ultrasound and laser irradiation 

    Hu, Zizhong; Zhang, Haonan; Mordovanakis, Aghapi; Paulus, Yannis M.; Liu, Qinghuai; Wang, Xueding; Yang, Xinmai (Nature Research, 2017-01-11)
    Antivascular therapy represents a proven strategy to treat angiogenesis. By applying synchronized ultrasound bursts and nanosecond laser irradiation, we developed a novel, selective, non-invasive, localized antivascular ...
  • Identification of novel small molecule Beclin 1 mimetics activating autophagy 

    Yu, Jia; Lan, Lan; Lewin, Seth J.; Rogers, Steven A.; Roy, Anuradha; Wu, Xiaoqing; Gao, Philip; Karanicolas, John; Aubé, Jeffrey; Sun, Baiwang; Xu, Liang (Impact Journals, 2017-05-18)
    Anti-apoptotic proteins Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL could block autophagy by binding to Beclin 1 protein, an essential inducer of autophagy. Compounds mimicking Beclin 1 might be able to disrupt Bcl-xL/2-Beclin 1 interaction, free ...
  • un/reliable reflections: The burden of reliability and the refuge of unreliability 

    Brooks Kieffer, Jamene (2018-10)
    Under the umbrella title “un/reliable reflections,” the two parts address burnout by comparing expectations for the reliability of computing and of data librarians. The first part, “The Burden of Reliability,” invokes ...
