The Boston University Open Access Articles collection contains scholarly publications written by Boston University faculty. This collection primarily consists of scholarly journal articles and published conference proceedings but open access book chapters, reviews, white papers, conference abstracts, and technical reports are also included. These publications are made available in OpenBU, Boston University’s Open Access Institutional Repository under the provisions of the Boston University Open Access Policy or by other arrangement. Note: Some works in this collection are not currently in open access, and are embargoed at the author's request.

Publications in Boston University’s Open Access collection are primarily one of three versions:

  • First Author Draft. This is the author's manuscript prior to formal peer review.
  • Accepted Manuscript. This is the version that exists after peer review, but before final copy editing and publisher formatting. Note: This is NOT publisher proofs.
  • Published Version. This is the final version that appeared in a formal publication such as a peer-reviewed journal, book, or published conference proceeding.

Citations are always given to the final published version, which may differ from the version made available in the repository. Wherever possible, a link or DOI to the final version is provided.

  • Big quantum cohomology of orbifold spheres 

    Amorim, Lino; Cho, Cheol-Hyun; Hong, Hansol; Lau, Siu (2020)
    We construct a Kodaira-Spencer map from the big quantum cohomology of a sphere with three orbifold points to the Jacobian ring of the mirror Landau-Ginzburg potential function. This is constructed via the Lagrangian Floer ...
  • Open Gromov–Witten invariants and mirror maps for semi-Fano toric manifolds 

    Chan, Kwokwai; Lau, Siu-Cheong; Leung, Naichung Conan; Tseng, Hsian-Hua (International Press of Boston, 2020)
    We prove that for a compact toric manifold whose anticanonical divisor is numerically effective, the Lagrangian Floer superpotential defined by Fukaya–Oh–Ohto–Ono [15] is equal to the superpotential written down by using ...
  • Constraint qualifications in partial identification 

    Kaido, Hiroaki; Molinari, Francesca; Stoye, J org (2019)
    The literature on stochastic programming typically regularizes problems using so-called Constraint Qualifications. The literature on estimation and inference under partial identification frequently restricts the geometry ...
  • David Martin and the sociology of hope 

    Seligman, Adam B.; Weller, Robert P. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-04)
    David Martin’s work has always bridged many worlds: the sacred and the secular, the world of power politics and of religious visions, of individual and society, and of poetry and rational analysis. His trenchant and ...
  • Philanthropy and the religious life of goodness in China 

    Weller, Robert; Huang, C. Julia; Wu, Keping (Edgar Elgar, 2020)
    A history of religious philanthropic associations, given in this chapter, shows how different they are from their past equivalents under the imperial Chinese dynasties. While they are still dedicated to betterment of the ...
  • On the complex affine structures of SYZ fibration of Del Pezzo surfaces 

    Lau, Siu; Lee, Tsung-Ju; Lin, Yu-Shen (2020)
    Given any smooth cubic curve E ⊆ P^2, we show that the complex affine structure of the special Lagrangian fibration of P^2 ⧵ E constructed by Collins-Jacob-Lin [12] coincides with the affine structure used in ...
  • Gluten degrading enzymes for treatment of celiac disease 

    Wei, Guoxian; Helmerhorst, Eva J.; Darwish, Ghassan; Blumenkranz, Gabriel; Schuppan, Detlef (2020-07-15)
    Celiac disease (CeD) affects about 1% of most world populations. It presents a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations, ranging from minor symptoms to mild or severe malabsorption, and it may be associated with a wide ...
  • Short-term ONX-0914 administration: performance and muscle phenotype in Mdx mice 

    Kwak, Dongmin; Wei, Guoxian; Thompson, LaDora V.; Kim, Jong-Hee (2020-07-19)
    Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a severe muscle-wasting disease. Although the lack of dystrophin protein is the primary defect responsible for the development of DMD, secondary disease complications such as persistent ...
  • Respecting silence: longing, rhythm, and Chinese temples in an age of bulldozers 

    Weller, Robert P. (Informa UK Limited, 2020)
    This essay distinguishes the silence that makes rhythm (and thus ritual) possible, and the silence of loss and longing. It argues that both, as they intertwine, are crucial parts of the adjustment to traumatic change. The ...
  • ‘We practise every day’: parents’ attitudes towards early science learning and education among a sample of urban families in Ireland 

    Gilligan, Therese; Lovett, Judy; McLoughlin, Eilish; Murphy, Clíona; Finlayson, Odilla; Corriveau, Kathleen; McNally, Sinéad (Informa UK Limited, 2020-11-01)
    Educational policies increasingly emphasise early childhood science engagement. As key influencers in children’s early learning, parents (n = 85) attending a science workshop in three urban schools in Ireland were surveyed ...
