Information seeking is crucial for people's self-care and wellbeing in times of public crises. Extensive research has investigated empirical understandings as well as technical solutions to facilitate information seeking by domestic citizens of affected regions. However, limited knowledge is established to support international migrants who need to...

Chapter
People in cultures of a short-term orientation rely more on experience than those in cultures of a long-term orientation do. In visual search tasks, attention is guided by experience and will be directed to the target sooner if the layout is similar to the immediately former task trial. We hypothesize that individuals in countries of a short-term o...
Article
Purpose This study aims to investigate “immersive reading,” which occurs when individuals read text while in a virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) environment. Design/methodology/approach In Experiment 1, 64 participants read text passages and answered multiple-choice questions in VR and AR head-mounted displays (HMDs) compared with doi...
Chapter
In recent years, the internet industry in China went through dramatic development, to which product managers made a great contribution. This study aimed to define what qualities are required for internet product managers to be competent. This study reviewed the literature on product managers’ competency in traditional industries and interviewed thr...
Chapter
In multimodal interaction, information is presented to users through multiple channels, e.g., sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste. Too much information delivered in a short time, however, may result in information overload that overflows people’s information processing capacity. We summarized the methods of quantifying the capacity by categorizin...
Article
People’s parallel-processing ability is limited, as demonstrated by the psychological refractory period (PRP) effect: The reaction time to the second stimulus (RT2) increases as the stimulus onset asynchrony (SOA) between two stimuli decreases. Most theoretical models of PRP are independent of modalities. Previous research on PRP mainly focused on...
Article
Dual-task performance depends on both modalities (e.g., vision, audition, haptics) and task types (spatial or object-based), and the order by which different task types are organized. Previous studies on haptic and especially auditory–haptic attentional blink (AB) are scarce, and the effect of task types and their order have not been fully explored...
Article
Multisensory learning has the potential to facilitate learning outcome. However, visual, auditory, and tactile information can be distractive under certain circumstance, and the effect of their combination has not been fully explored. In two experiments, sixty-four participants read Chinese paragraphs and then answered multiple-choice questions wit...
Article
The design of multimodal output should be based on modality capacity and appropriateness. Previous relevant research had various limitations such as using over-simplified tasks. We proposed a paradigm with virtual reality to explore the capacity and appropriateness of complex non-semantic information stream. In two experiments, fifty-six college st...
Article
Elevator accidents happen frequently and cause much loss. Personality factors and safety attitudes have been proved effective in predicting accidents in traffic and workplace. The present study aimed to explore the effect of personality factors and safety attitudes in elevator accidents. A survey was carried out on 383 elevator installers and repai...
Article
Many virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications in education require speed reading. The current study aimed to explore whether the reading performance on VR and AR is different from that on traditional desktop display, and whether the difference is moderated by the reading speed. Sixty-three college students read Chinese passages...

The term "fan loyalty" refers to the loyalty felt and expressed by a fan towards the object of his/her fanaticism in both everyday and academic discourses. However, much of the literature on fan loyalty has paid little attention to the topic from the perspective of youth pop culture. The present study explored the meaning of fan loyalty in the cont...

The developing world is witness to a major urban transformation. How to facilitate intergroup relations between new migrants and long-time urban residents is a critical issue in developing societies globally. The current research explored the effect of group boundary permeability on intergroup prejudice by the case of rural-to-urban migration in Ch...

By the methods of adjective check list (ACL) and adjective rating scale, this study examined the undergraduate' s stereotype on migrant workers. It conducted a questionnaire among 264 undergraduates by the methods of adjective checking table and adjective evaluation. Results indicated that the stereo¬type contains three factors: “hardworking and pl...

The study explores the effect of color of materials in English on reading scores using archival method, experiment and questionnaires. The study of the CET-6 scores of 5537 subjects from Beijing Normal University and Peking University show a significant difference in Reading section and total scores only, which the subjects using blue materials is...

Questions (2)
Question
How to calculate (or measure) the sound pressure level in dB of an audio stimuli played through headphones?
Assuming that we know the loudness of sound file, the volume of the computer, and the volume of the player.
I know I can measure it if the sound is played through speakers, but how could I do that if it is played through headphones?
Question
Can statistical power (1 - beta) equal 1.00? As suggested by the output of SPSS.
Or should I report ">.99" instead?
