I am a psychology PhD student. I would like to map the psychological literature on 'everyday life peacebuilding' for my research. 'Everyday life peacebuilding' is emerging as a formal field of study within the multidisciplinary field of peace and conflict research; it is more typically addressed by sociologists, ethnographers and political scientists than psychologists. I have not seen many references to scoping reviews outside of health or policy. My questions are: Am I making my literature review process too complex, for my discipline, by adopting a systematic protocol? Or paradoxically, will the systematic protocol offer me more guidance in this complex multidisciplinary field?
Thank you in advance for your insights.

Answer
Dear Kisane Prutton , I am currently writing a scoping review protocol using the PRISMA extension (PRISMA-ScR). It is quite the same as the classic PRISMA 2020 but focuses on scoping reviews. Maybe that would fit your data as well? Their Paper is named: PRISMA Extension for Scoping Reviews (PRISMA-ScR): Checklist and Explanation.
Currently, I am searching for a suitable site to preregister my protocol. Have you made up your mind yet? I thought maybe OSF would fit? As PROSPERO etc. mostly focuses on systematic reviews.
I wish you a lot of success,

The COVID 19 lockdown has changed how we do things in our everyday life. This is true also in regards to higher education. For more than two semesters now, students are taking an online class. This can be a challenge to peer cooperation or it can help to build new ways of cooperation among students.

Most of research are giving some contrdict statement that research has no implication in everyday life. So, don't need to conduct research. whats is your opinion.
Relevant answer
Answer
Of course research has implications in everyday life. Modern world is based upon the bedrock of research. Without research, there is no way that you and I would be having this discussion on this platform. Every technological tool we use in our life is a result of years if not decades of research. So, in my opinion, research has far reaching implications in our daily life than we realize.

Hello :)
I found this forum while looking for good sociologic theories on identity, so I hope its okay to ask this question here. If it isnt just remove me :D
Do you know any good books on the balance of ones on identity or rather the multitude of ones identities? How we balance those identities. How one can be authentic to oneselfs "true" identity maybe or if such a things as a true identity really exists. I am especially interested in our everyday lifes here, problems such as trying to become one specific person, as can be seen in the movies, come to mind. The conflict of feeling "kind of fake" when acting different in all kinds of settings.
I kind of wonder if we often get lost in our search for our one true identity. I feel like we are told that a strong person always has the same identity. But is that really true?

I usually have bad luck with my questions at RG. Either they are too under-estimating for others or too complex, that's my guess. Just now I was studying John Dewey and his educational theory. I have also written critical essays about Dewey, but there was one thought (and there may be others that are useful) that I found particularly appealing: It is always positive to have a new and good experience. This is what Dewey says in "Art as Experience". I'm simply passing on the message here: Who has a suggestion that you can recommend?
Relevant answer
Answer
It is my practice to merge science, life and the arts.
Economization, economism and the total monetary economy are one-dimensional and linear concepts, which block the possibility of such creative (soul-uplifting) experiences that J.Dewey mentions.
Hermann Broch http://www.memorablequotations.com/broch.htm wrote a lot of such experiences.
Practically, a good excerise is to look at a famous work piece of art and to match own experiences (intuitive perception) vs. 'official' interpretations (standard canon). Before making this exercise, I never read anything 'official'.

Millennials see social media as a 'normal' process of everyday life. Is social media that engrained within society that the removal of it would essentially, for some, be the removal of 'reality'?
Jean Boudrillard identified simulacra as not being a 'copy of the real, but truth in its own right' or 'hyperreality' - Applying this to social media, we must surely be able to state that social media is a hyperreality, as it blurs the lines between reality and fiction by the content written upon it.

We take “maps” of reality like television, film, etc. as more real than our actual lives.

In many cosmological theories, astronomers try to explain the essence of the unlimitedness of the Universe. But how can this unlimitedness be presented and defined in the most concise and clear way possible?
What can be compared to the unlimitedness of the Universe? Or maybe the essence of the problem goes beyond the scientific definition of the concept of the unlimitedness of the Universe?
The problem may be the understanding of this unlimitedness of the Universe by man, because everything that surrounds man in everyday life on Earth is limited.
Do you agree with my opinion on this matter?
In view of the above, I am asking you the following question:
How is the unlimitedness of the Universe explained now?
Please reply

Answer
The concept of the finite universe or an universe limited in apace and time is due to the limitation of any epistemology based on causality for which there has to be a first cause of a beginning. Idealized mathematics promoted by the Platonists and the rationalists is the epitome of causality based epistemology and cosmology.
Albert Einstein adopted Platonic mathematical idealism in modern physics after the breakdown of causality with the discovery of the revolutionary quantum phenomena. But mathematics is helpless to deal with the concept of the Infinite as Cantor found out. Einstein’s theories of relativity, specially GR that is the basis of modern official cosmology, necessarily started with the presupposition that the universe must be finite; but this is a wishful thinking just for the convenience of his mathematical approach to epistemology and cosmology!
Einstein’s theories of relativity are invalid and have no place in an infinite universe. And the universe IS infinite! Please see the links below:
Recently, there has been calls in RG for medieval type Inquisition to deal with the growing number of scientists who doubt or even deny the validity of Einstein’s theories of relativity. The following forum is an example:
But the relativists, Crusaders and the Inquisitors of official physics in RG have now already been silenced through the power of logic and science alone:

Hi dear colleagues and researchers,
I conducted a qualitative fieldwork study to gain a phenomenological understanding of the everyday life experiences of 8 immigrant Afghan women who live in Auckland. That understanding was supposed to contribute to an exploration of the way they relate to their public life in the city through looking at different constructs and dimensions of place attachment. I, as the female researcher coming from a non-western country, also, explained my reflexivity and proportionality in relation to the participants and the (inter)subjective approach that I have in the research. So, in-depth semi-structured interviews, cognitive mapping, photo-elicitation, as well as participant observation were applied to collect the required data and have a collaborative and trustworthy relationship with the participants in different layers of interaction.
Now, in order to give more clarification in my methodology chapter, I need to explain my analytical approach. I am not sure 100% about the best compatible approach for analyzing the data in my study. Whether a thematic analysis or an interpretative phenomenological analysis or a discourse analysis?
I would highly appreciate your opinions and advises.

The wireless devices have become the integral part of our everyday life. These devices are being used for many purposes such as for Internet and Telecommunication. There are many effects of wireless devices on the human body, some of which generates heat on the human body, Is there any paper related to bioheat transfer from wireless devices?
Relevant answer
Answer
Bioheat transfer is the study of the transport of thermal energy in living systems. Because biochemical processes are temperature dependent, heat transfer plays a major role in living systems. Also, because the mass transport of blood through tissue causes a consequent thermal energy transfer, bioheat transfer methods are applicable for diag- nostic and therapeutic applications involving either mass or heat transfer. This article presents the characteristics of bioheat transfer that distinguish it from nonliving systems, including the effects of blood perfusion on temperature distribution, coupling with biochemical processes, thera- peutic and injury processes, and thermoregulation.

Relevant answer
Answer
In the U.S., one would go to one's institutional review board (IRB) and submit a scientific protocol and research informed consent form and ask the IRB's approval of the research study and informed consent form. The IRB has authority over who can participate in the study and you would ask for their recommendations. In the U.S., the IRB could determine that it is a "minimal risk" study and grant that an informed consent form is not needed, but whether the study is "minimal risk" or not is a decision that is made by the IRB. Best first step with any questions is to go directly to you IRB and ask your questions directly of your IRB.

Your question asks about the impacts of the informal economy. The informal economy has different impacts on different stakeholder groups. These include formal businesses, informal enterprises, formal workers, informal workers, informal economy customers, governments, economies and societies. There is a large literature on the impacts of the informal economy on each of these different stakeholders.
Have a look at my ResearchGate page for numerous publications which examine not only how to measure and survey the informal economy but also its impacts on different stakeholder groups in different contexts.

There are also a few studies of disadvantaged high school students I have seen that echo what I see in adults.
I think it's important to have a sound philosophy / hypothesis to begin. I have some strong feelings that many studies are not relevant to real people's concerns but have more to do with getting easy studies completed for other reasons. A sure sign of possible quality for me is a cross disciplinary focus e.g. the work of Dezhi Wu.
