Two new papers were accepted for publication this week:
Debbeler, L. J. Gamp, M., Blumenschein, M., Keim, D. A., & Renner, B. (in press). Polarized but illusory beliefs about tap and bottled water: A product- and consumer-oriented survey and blind tasting experiment. Science of the Total Environment.
Stok, F. M., Junghans, A., de Ridder, D. T. D., Renner, B., & Evers, C. (in press). Highlights in the Dark: How Highlighted Utensils Influence Consumption in a Dark Setting. Psychology & Health.
Using a new visualization tool and combining field and experimental designs, the paper in Science of the Total Environment suggests that although bottled and tap water consumer groups differ greatly in their beliefs, perceived health risks and taste, these differences seem to reflect illusionary beliefs rather than actual experiences or product characteristics.
As we just moved to a new webpage, here is a list of some older news:
