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.

  • The noise-lovers: cultures of speech and sound in second-century Rome 

    Uden, James (Cambridge University Press, 2020-06)
    This chapter provides an examination of an ideal of the ‘deliberate speaker’, who aims to reflect time, thought, and study in his speech. In the Roman Empire, words became a vital tool for creating and defending in-groups, ...
  • Decomposing changes in the distribution of real hourly wages in the U.S. 

    Fernandez-Val, Ivan; Peracchi, Franco; van Vuuren, Aico; Vella, Francis (Institute for Fiscal Studies, 2019-11-18)
    We analyze the sources of changes in the distribution of hourly wages in the United States using CPS data for the survey years 1976 to 2016. We account for the selection bias from the employment decision by modeling the ...
  • Detecting signals of weakly first-order phase transitions in two-dimensional Potts models 

    Iino, Shumpei; Morita, Satoshi; Kawashima, Naoki; Sandvik, Anders W. (The Physical Society of Japan, 2019-03-01)
    We investigate the first-order phase transitions of the q-state Potts models with q = 5, 6, 7, and 8 on the two- dimensional square lattice, using Monte Carlo simulations. At the very weakly first-order transition of the ...
  • Airbnb 2.0: is it a sharing economy platform or a lodging corporation? 

    Dogru, Tarik; Mody, Makarand; Suess, Courtney; Line, Nathan; Bonn, Mark (Elsevier BV, 2020-06)
    Research on Airbnb has provided significant evidence that it has an adverse impact on hotel performance. However, the impact of a more recent Airbnb-related phenomenon that remains under-explored is the increasing ...
  • A conversation with Albert Ma 

    Ma, Albert (World Scientific, 2020-05-05)
    Can you describe your field briefly? I am an applied microeconomist, and my research is on health economics and industrial organisation. My main interest is in the health market, and my favourite way to describe my work ...
  • Virtual phenomics - use of robots and drones in combination with genomics accelerate genetic gains in wheat breeding 

    Shafiee, Sahameh; From, Pål; Burud, Ingunn; Dieseth, Jon Arne; Vindfallet, Are; Crossa, Jose; Alsheikh, Muath (2019-10-22)
    Wheat breeding is a tedious process that usually takes 10-15 years and depends heavily on the ability to identify superior progeny lines by visual inspection and manual scoring of traits. Two emerging technologies are now ...
  • Neanderthal plant use and pyrotechnology: phytolith analysis from Roc de Marsal, France 

    Wroth, Kristen; Cabanes, Dan; Marston, John M.; Aldeias, Vera; Sandgathe, Dennis; Turq, Alain; Goldberg, Paul; Dibble, Harold L. (Springer Nature Switzerland AG, 2019-08)
    The plant component of Neanderthal subsistence and technology is not well documented, partially due to the preservation constraints of macrobotanical components. Phytoliths, however, are preserved even when other plant ...
  • Assessing democratic engagement through student organizations 

    Robiadek, Katherine M.; Strachan, J. Cherie; Bennion, Elizabeth A. (Informa UK Limited, 2019-10-20)
    The National Survey of Student Leaders (NSSL) is the first initiative extending scholarly insights about democratic benefits of participation in civil society associations to student organizations and their leaders on ...
  • Towards verification-aware knowledge distillation for neural-network controlled systems: invited paper 

    Fan, Jiameng; Huang, Chao; Li, Wenchao; Chen, Xin; Zhu, Qi (IEEE, 2019-11)
    Neural networks are widely used in many applications ranging from classification to control. While these networks are composed of simple arithmetic operations, they are challenging to formally verify for properties such ...
  • Peripheral visual localization is degraded by globally incongruent auditory-spatial attention cues 

    Ahveninen, Jyrki; Ingalls, Grace; Yildirim, Funda; Calabro, Finnegan J.; Vaina, Lucia M. (Springer, 2019-06-14)
    Global auditory-spatial orienting cues help the detection of weak visual stimuli, but it is not clear whether crossmodal attention cues also enhance the resolution of visuospatial discrimination. Here, we hypothesized that ...
