This collection will help you easily find and stay up-to-date with the full body of research in GAA.
For every study you will find the title, the authors name(s), the year of publication & the abstract. The abstract is simply a summary of the research paper; what the researchers did, and what they found. Scientific abstracts can often be quite confusing to read, so for your convenience the abstracts have been made more concise. For those of you who wish to read the full paper, you will also find a link to the online source of each paper.
Scientific studies use terms that you may not be familiar with or have a different meaning in the context of a study. We have included a key terminology section below to help you easily understand what the abstracts mean.
This collection will be updated on a monthly basis, but if you know of a study you feel we have missed that should be included, please email us:
et al. :
This is an abbreviated Latin terms which means “and others”. Studies often have several authors, so this term is used instead of listing all the authors. The lead author is named and “et al.” is used to show there are other authors.
This symbol can be used to mean a few different things but at a basic level it means "plus or minus", this symbol is used to indicate the precision of an approximation (as in "The result is 10 ± 0.3", meaning the result is anywhere in the inclusive range from 9.7 to 10.3)
When authors say a difference is “significant” it does not necessarily mean it is a large difference. Rather, using the word “significant” means that the difference found was shown to be an actual difference due to the intervention used and not down to chance when examined using the statistical tests employed by the authors.
