Journal agreements extend reach of University of Windsor research

The Leddy Library is signing agreements with academic journal publishers to make it easier for University of Windsor authors to publish their articles as Open Access. Open Access publishing allows authors to extend readership by reducing barriers to access, thereby increasing the impact and citability of the research.


Math students gain experience through the Academic Data Centre

Stats grad student Ke Xiao calls working with the Academic Data Centre an “incredibly special experience.”

Researchers had extra support at the Academic Data Centre in the Winter 2022 semester thanks to mathematics and statistics students. Nine students enrolled in the statistical consulting courses had the opportunity to assist in the centre to hone their skills and gain valuable hands-on experience.

The venture is part of a growing collaboration between the centre and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics that allows students at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate levels to apply their course learning to real scientific statistical analysis projects.


Geospatial data analyst creates tool to raise awareness of extreme heat and flooding in the region

Map of Windsor-Essex County
With temperatures rising across Windsor-Essex County this week, Leddy Library’s geospatial data analyst, Carina Luo, designed a web application to raise awareness about climatic hazards in the area, particularly flooding and extreme heat.

After completing research about climate trends in the region, Luo found that Windsor-Essex holds the record for the greatest number of annual heat waves in Ontario between 1971 and 2000. In addition, inland floods have also been a consistent problem for the region, with significant flooding events occurring in 2016, 2017, and 2020.
