New research by Kingston Business School expert debunks myths around best way to manage emails at work

Do you believe emailing gets in the way of more important tasks at work – or that checking your inbox only a few times a day is the most efficient approach? New research by a Kingston University email expert is challenging some of the commonly-held beliefs around the best way to manage – and use – emails in the workplace.

Dr Emma Russell, Head of the Well-being at Work Research Group at Kingston Business School, conducted an extensive review of the literature regarding strategies people use to manage their work email. Emerging themes were then sense-checked in interviews with a group of working adults to find out how these approaches work in practice....

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the most common congenital infection in the United Kingdom. Although the virus causes only mild symptoms in adults, it can cause permanent health problems - such as cerebral palsy, developmental delay and hearing loss - if babies are infected in the womb. However, most pregnant women are not aware of CMV or the measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of catching it, as information about the virus is not routinely offered in the NHS....

Brexit vote accurately predicted by brain activity, Kingston University research finds

Brain scans may be a more accurate indicator of how people are going to vote than opinion polls or pre-electoral surveys, claim researchers at Kingston University, after they studied brain activity of voters during the EU referendum.

The researchers examined patterns of brain activity in a group of pro-remain and pro-leave voters in the five weeks up to the EU referendum last summer. The group also included those who said they were undecided on how they would vote....

Newly launched Kingston School of Art will play key role in developing creative leaders who dare to think differently, interim Dean Anne Boddington says

Kingston University's newly launched art school has opened its doors to students, staff and researchers. Kingston School of Art has returned to its original name to reclaim its 150 years of art school heritage as it looks to influence future discussions as one of the country's leading providers of art and design education.

New interim dean Professor Anne Boddington highlighted the art school ethos at the heart of the renamed Faculty as one of the main drivers in developing graduates able to influence the challenges facing today's society. "It's important to put Kingston School of Art on the map – not only at national and international level, as an institution contributing to the impact of art in the world, but also in terms of the role of an art school in a university," Professor Boddington said....
