Correction: The title of Professor Ron Taylor’s AEJMC paper was reported last week with an incorrect title. The correct title of Taylor’s paper is “Using Taylor’s six-segment strategy model to generate messages that help to reduce hospital-acquired infections.”



Doctoral student Martijn J. Van Kelegom and Assistant Professor Courtney Wright have had two manuscripts accepted for publication. “The use of imagined interactions to manage relational uncertainty” will appear in Southern Communication Journal, and “An investigation of episodic and partner-specific imagined interaction use” will appear in Imagination, Cognition, and Personality.

Assistant Professor Laura Miller has recently had four manuscripts accepted for publication. “Individual and focus group interviews,” which Miller co-authored with Erin Donovan-Kicken and Daena Goldsmith will appear in Research methods in health communication: Principles and application, edited by Brian Whaley;  “Uncertainty and information seeking in cancer survivorship” will appear in Health Communication; “’We’re going to be survivors:’ Couples’ identity challenges during and after cancer treatment,” written with John Caughlin, will appear in Communication Monographs; and  “Sources of uncertainty in cancer survivorship” will appear in Journal of Cancer Survivorship.

Assistant Professor Jonathan Pettigrew had a co-authored paper accepted for publication. “How prevention curricula are taught under real-world conditions: Types of and reasons for teacher curriculum adaptations,” written with M. Miller-Day, M. L. Hecht, Y. J. Shin, J. W. Graham, and J. Krieger, will appear in Health Education.




Several papers resulted from a recently completed grant from U.K. JISC Collections.  Research Assistant Rachel Volentine, Program Manager Liz Whitson, and Chancellor’s Professor Carol Tenopir published “Portraits of success: Building personas from scholarly reading patterns” in QQML 4th annual conference proceedings. Volentine and Tenopir also published “Value of academic reading and value of the library in academics’ own words” in Aslib Proceedings. Tenopir, Volentine, and Adjunct Professor Donald King published three articles: “Social media and reading” in Online Information Review; “Article and book reading patterns of scholars: Findings for publishers” in Learned Publishing; and “Scholarly reading and the value of academic library collections: Results of a study in six UK universities” in Insights. Additionally, Tenopir and Volentine had their paper, “The value of scholarly reading in the life sciences,” accepted for publication in Ideas in Ecology and Evolution.
