Perspectives on methodology in consumer research by David Brinberg( Book )

13 editions published in 1986 in English and German and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Methodological advances in consumer behavior are increasing rapidly. We can characterize these advances by work in two logically separate but functionally related areas: (a) the philosophical underpinnings of our methods, and (b) the analytic strategies for examining the phenomena of interest in the field. An important aspect in communicating these advances is the demonstration of their use on focal problems in consumer behavior. Current research strategies and analytic techniques in the field of consumer research reflect the dominant logical empiricist epistemology. The develop ment of new epistemologies (e.g., scientific relativism, hypothetical realism), however, is likely to modify the dominant logical empiricist approach and is also likely to influence the analytic strategies used to conduct research. For instance, with the increased awareness of scientific relativism and hypothet ical realism, greater emphasis is anticipated for idiographic rather than nomo thetic designs, for observational rather than experimental designs, for process rather than static analyses, and for more sophisticated techniques for summariz ing findings across studies. The major theme underlying this volume is that conceptual, analytic, and sub stantive diversity are essential for consumer behavior research to advance. Col lectively, the chapters we present in this volume are a diverse set of perspectives for the study of consumer behavior. This volume is organized into three parts: (1) philosophical orientations toward consumer behavior research, (2) analytic strategies for consumer behavior research, and (3) applications of these orientations and strategies to current research areas
A social-psychological perspective on food-related behavior by Marta L Axelson( Book )

13 editions published in 1989 in English and German and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the diseases which afflict people in an affluent society like the United States seem to be related to food consumption (e.g., adult-onset diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, and colon cancer). In recent years, the health-related professions have become aware that their exclusive aim of disease treatment must be expanded to include health promotion. Professionals in food and nutrition, health education, social marketing, and psychology, as well as others have become interested in finding ways to promote healthy behaviors such as appropriate food consumption patterns. To modify food-related behavior, knowledge about why people eat what they eat is required. Both biological and sociocultural factors determine people's consumption behavior. This monograph, however, examines only the sociocultural determinants of individuals' food-related behaviors within their zone of biological indifference. The sociocultural variables are divided into two major categories - sociodemographic and psychological. Sociodemographic variables are often called external variables and include income, ethnicity, age, and the like. Psychosocial variables are thought to reflect the individual's internal state, and commonly examined variables include knowledge, beliefs, and attitudes

Dyadic decision making by David Brinberg( Book )

16 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent research on joint or dyadic decision making has received renewed attention from behavioral scientists. This interest is due mostly to the advances in analytic and conceptual models used to study interaction processes. A number of related disciplines have used distinctive paradigms to study the same focal problem: namely, the processes by which two people interact, come to resolve a problem and, finally, reach a decision. Dyadic Decision Making presents in a single, integrated volume the conceptual and analytic strategies developed in communications research, marketing, psychology and sociology to investigate joint decision making
A Validity Network Schema by David Brinberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Numerous forms and meanings of validity have been developed to provide researchers with the opportunity to assess the many potential sources of ambiguity that exist in any research finding. A Validity Network Schema (vns) developed by Brinberg & McGrath (1982) is extended and elaborated in order to describe the components of the research process and their interrelations, and draw out some implications of the schema for the acquisition of knowledge. Vns describes research as a three-stage process, whose outcome is some structural combination of concepts, methods, and substantive events. In stage 1, researchers develop, clarify, and select elements and relations from the three basic domains--conceptualization, methodological, and substantive. Stage 2, the research study proper, involves two steps: the researcher combines elements and relations from two of the three domains to form an intermediate structure; and the researcher integrates that structure with the elements and relations from the third domain. Stage 3 of the research process involves the reduction of uncertainty associated with the findings of Stage 2 by exploring the range of respondents, events, contexts, methods, and concepts over which the stage 2 results do and do not hold. In stage 3, validity takes on the meaning of robustness and generalizability. (Pn)

Forestry practices and veneer log value-manufacturer's assessments of veneer log attributes by Delton Alderman( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Hardwood veneer logs comprise less than 1% of the eastern hardwood forest resource in the United States; yet the typical range for veneer log prices is 2-10 times greater than that of grade 1 sawlogs. In this article we examine attributes and defects known to affect the value of veneer logs and shed light on forest management considerations that affect veneer log production. Veneer attribute data were collected for black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrh.), black walnut (Juglans nigra L.), northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.), sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.), and white oak (Quercus alba L.). Social judgment theory was used to assess veneer attributes and defects. Color (hue and consistency) and rings (density and texture) are the drivers in veneer log selection, and the results are also indicated by a "Species by Color" interaction and a "Species by Rings" interaction. Other cues are important but do not appear to drive log selection. Hardwood forest management practices, in which partial cuttings are performed, can affect the potential product value of face veneer quality residual stems by changing the rate of diameter growth."
Solving Complex Problems( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Three distinct literatures address social change: social entrepreneurship, community action research, and social marketing. While these activities have a shared goal to create social change, each orientation approaches their activities from a different perspective. The current work explores how macro-social marketing efforts can benefit from alternative orientations to enhance enduring social change. Social entrepreneurship highlights the importance of enduring resources and considering scalability. Community action highlights the importance of obtaining legitimacy and buy-in from multiple entities in the social change system. Social marketing highlights the importance of an end-user perspective and the application of behavioral theories to create systematic change. This work describes a case study in the Kenyan education context to highlight the value of this approach

Key attributes associated with veneer quality timber that may be impacted by forest management practices( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Veneer log prices are commonly 4 to 10 times the price of grade 1 sawlogs yet veneer quality trees constitute less than 1 percent of the hardwood timber resource in the northeastern United States. Veneer manufacturers and their customers impose guidelines in specifying wood quality attributes that are very discriminating but poorly defined (e.g., exceptional color, texture, and/or figure characteristics). In order to better understand and begin to define the most important attributes that distinguish veneer logs from sawlogs and high-end from low-end veneer logs, we are conducting a series of studies in which we are collecting veneer log attribute information from veneer log buyers and sellers, veneer manufacturers, and veneer sales personnel. Broad veneer log quality requirements and specific requirements for the most highly demanded veneer log species (cherry, red oak, white oak, white ash, black walnut, sugar maple, and yellowpoplar) are being elucidated. The relative importance of critical, but often subtle, veneer log quality attributes are examined for each of these species. Guidelines for assessing the true veneer value potential of high-quality trees can be based on buyer-cue based log attribute metrics. Important veneer attributes include log form, growth-ring consistency, heartwood/sapwood proportion, and wood color as well as the more obvious defects. Forest managers can consider the relative importance of the different attributes when they initiate silvicultural techniques to produce high quality hardwood timber."

Consumer ring count and grain texture preferences of selected eastern United States hardwoods( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Historically, eastern hardwoods have been a staple of forest products production. However, hardwood producers are now faced with serious challenges from substitutable products, such as imports of foreign species, utilization of foreign species in overseas manufacture (e.g., case goods, etc.), and composite-based materials that are imported or manufactured here in the United States. In today's globally competitive marketplace, product distinction is a key to success. Without a functioning manufacturing base, forest management and subsequently forest health, sustainable forestry, and markets for U.S. timberland owners are potentially diminished. Consumer data for ring-density count and grain texture preferences were collected via field studies at several sites in the U.S. The results are directly applicable to forest management of the eastern hardwood resource and afford forest managers the opportunity to manage hardwood forests with the ultimate consumer in mind. Findings from the ring density and texture attributes (i.e., grain) are directly applicable to forest management schemas for the eastern hardwood resource. For example, should a forest manager apply timber stand improvement or single tree selection to attenuate or amplify wood characteristics and/or attributes?"
