TL;DR: The authors compared variation in the replicability of 13 classic and contemporary effects across 36 independent samples totaling 6,344 participants and found that the results of these experiments are more dependent on the effect itself than on the sample and setting used to investigate the effect.
Abstract: Although replication is a central tenet of science, direct replications are rare in psychology. This research tested variation in the replicability of 13 classic and contemporary effects across 36 independent samples totaling 6,344 participants. In the aggregate, 10 effects replicated consistently. One effect – imagined contact reducing prejudice – showed weak support for replicability. And two effects – flag priming influencing conservatism and currency priming influencing system justification – did not replicate. We compared whether the conditions such as lab versus online or US versus international sample predicted effect magnitudes. By and large they did not. The results of this small sample of effects suggest that replicability is more dependent on the effect itself than on the sample and setting used to investigate the effect.
TL;DR: The authors examined how quality perceptions of consumers vary across four product classes: electronic items, food products, fashion merchandise, and household goods, and found that quality perceptions tend to be product-specific.
Abstract: Although a substantial body of literature exists on the country-of-origin bias, the issue of whether or not such perceptions are uniform across product classes has not been resolved. This study examines how quality perceptions of consumers vary across four product classes: electronic items, food products, fashion merchandise, and household goods. Responses obtained from a sample of Nova Scotian consumers suggest that quality perceptions tend to be product-specific. Quality perceptions vary also for the 25 countries studied. A number of policy implications are also offered in the paper.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors frame the work of living with cancer as one which is identity-altering, and use interviews with a heterogeneous group of cancer patients of varying sites and stages to conceptualize the identity work as involving disrupted feelings of fit, renegotiating identity, and biographical work.
Abstract: We frame the work of living with cancer as one which is identity-altering. Interviews with a heterogeneous group of cancer patients of varying sites and stages were used to conceptualise the identity work as involving disrupted feelings of fit, renegotiating identity, and biographical work. Patient narratives reflect these categories depending on their stage of illness and their experiences in medical institutions.‘Identity work’ is used to describe the process of patients' evaluations of the meaning of their illness within the actual context of ongoing, organised social relationships, including the medical system. We discuss the implications for narrative analyses in the social sciences.
