Using matching and regression analyses, we measure the difference in citations between articles posted to and other articles from similar journals, controlling for field, impact factor, and other variables. Based on a sample size of 31,216 papers, we find that a paper in a median impact factor journal uploaded to receives 16% more citations after one year than a similar article not available online, 51% more citations after three years, and 69% after five years. We also...

Structural changes to the scholarly environment are taking place as a result of the introduction of Web 2.0 technologies, which have given rise to Open Science 2.0 initiatives, such as open access publishing, open data, citizen science, and open peer evaluation systems. In turn, this is leading to new ways of building, showcasing, and measuring scholarly reputation through emerging platforms, such as ResearchGate. The article reports the findings of a survey of the opinions and practices of 251 ...

Frequent publication is one of the few powerful methods at scholar's disposal to demonstrate academic talent to peers. Successful publication of research brings attention to scholars and their institutions. This in turn may bring in more funding for the institute and also ensure an individual's progress through their field. Academic institutions and university frequently use the number of publication to an individual's credit as the measure of competency. Administrators are increasingly using th...

For various reasons, survey participants may submit phony self-reports meant to bypass researcher skepticism. Although casewise deletion of subtly suspicious attitude data is not standard practice, marketing research might improve if these bogus cases were purged before substantive data analyses. After suggesting reasons for a new category of problematic survey participant—the mischievous respondent—and reviewing the related response bias, faking, inattentive respondent, and outlier literatures,...

The Multidimensional Ethics Scale is an eight-item, three-subscale measure developed in Reidenbach and Robin (1990) and subsequently applied in at least ten empirical studies of business ethics. Despite two failed replication studies and two skeptical critiques, business ethics researchers continue to use the scale. Given the lingering uncertainty about the scale and its continued use in empirical research, a definitive critique and revalidation study is warranted. After an examination of the pr...

This study represents an improvement in the ethics scales inventory published in a 1988 Journal of Business Ethics article. The article presents the distillation and validation process whereby the original 33 item inventory was reduced to eight items. These eight items comprise the following ethical dimensions: a moral equity dimension, a relativism dimension, and a contractualism dimension. The multidimensional ethics scale demonstrates significant predictive ability.

Sterrett and Smith argue that deduction is ill-suited for use in argument-centered works and that deduction should not replace induction. We respond by (1) clarifying some key terms, (2) proclaiming the extreme importance of induction for marketing science, (3) showing that the demands of deductive reasoning, if properly understood, are not excessive, and (4) defanging their argument from non-ampliativity.

ABSTRACTAlthough the null hypothesis significance testing procedure is problematic, many still favor the use of p-values as indicating the state of evidence against the model used to generate the p-value. From this perspective, p-values benefit science; or would benefit science if used correctly. In contrast, the novel argument to be presented introduces a taxonomy of assumptions included in the model; such as theoretical assumptions, auxiliary assumptions, statistical assumptions, and inferenti...

There has been much debate about null hypothesis significance testing, p-values without null hypothesis significance testing, and confidence intervals. The first major section of the present article addresses some of the main reasons these procedures are problematic. The conclusion is that none of them are satisfactory. However, there is a new procedure, termed the a priori procedure (APP), that validly aids researchers in obtaining sample statistics that have acceptable probabilities of being c...

Research has focused on the role of prosocial behaviors in mate choice, across both social and evolutionary psychology. Several studies provide strong support for the role of altruism in mate choice, whereby people find prosociality attractive in potential mates. As most research focuses on the role of altruism in mate choice, most research has found that people exhibit altruism towards attractive people, suggesting altruistic behavior is driven by mate choice motivation. Although studies have s...

This article resulted from our participation in the session on the “role of expert opinion and judgment in statistical inference” at the October 2017 ASA Symposium on Statistical Inference. We present a strong, unified statement on roles of expert judgment in statistics with processes for obtaining input, whether from a Bayesian or frequentist perspective. Topics include the role of subjectivity in the cycle of scientific inference and decisions, followed by a clinical trial and a greenhouse gas...

ABSTRACTPossibly, the replication crisis constitutes the most important problem in psychology. It calls into question whether psychology is a science. Existing conceptualizations of replicability depend on effect sizes; the larger the population effect size, the greater the probability of replication. This is problematic and contributes to the replication crisis. A different conceptualization, not dependent on population effect sizes, is desirable. The proposed solution features the closeness of...

It is widely accepted that habits are automatic. In turn, automaticity often has been taken as implying (a) a lack of use of resources, (b) inevitability, and (c) a lack of intentions. All three characteristics of automaticity create conceptual difficulties, at least in the context of habits. Inconvenient questions arise from a careful consideration of each of the implied characteristics habits are said to have, based on an acceptance of the basic premise that habits are automatic. Also of impor...
