A Puzzler for the Student Scholarship and Creative Achievement Conference

Apr 4, 2012

In honor of this year’s Student Scholarship and Creative Achievement Conference, here’s a puzzler:

Did you ever wonder where popular news sources get those research studies, featured in stories like this one from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune?

“To Attract Women, Men Can Turn Into Big Spenders”

Many times the original, published research articles (conducted by experts “in the field”) can be found in library databases! The previous article was based on the following study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology (and available through the library’s subscription to PsycARTICLES):

“The Financial Consequences of Too Many men: Sex Ratio Effects on Saving, Borrowing, and Spending”

Happy Researching!
