The College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences recently celebrated faculty research across the college by recognizing selected outstanding journal publications. College leadership recognized each faculty member responsible for the work with a plaque, which are displayed outside of the dean’s office.

This is the second group of faculty recognized for their recent publications. College leadership selected one faculty member per department to receive this recognition. College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences (CBSHS) Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies Eric Muth said the goal of this initiative, which started last school year, is to recognize impactful research by faculty across all seven departments in the college.

“The publications selected have already received a minimum of 5 citations, representing work that appears to be making an immediate impact,” Muth said. “CBSHS is all about impact to build people and communities and these works show the breadth of our impact.”

The outstanding journal publications selected for 2019 are as follows:

  • “Priming or Proteus Effect? Examining the Effects of Avatar Race on In-Game Behavior and Post-Play Aggressive Cognition and Affect in Video Games,” by Erin Ash, an associate professor in Clemson’s communication department, published in Games and Culture journal.
  • “How Staff of Youth Programs Respond to Culture-Related Incidents: Nonengagement Versus Going ‘Full-Right-In,'” by coauthor Mariela Fernandez, an assistant professor in Clemson’s parks, recreation and tourism management department, published in Journal of Adolescent Research.
  • “Racial Threat and the Influence of Latino Turnout on State Immigration Policy,” by coauthor Jeff Fine, an associate professor in Clemson’s political sciences department, published in Social Science Quarterly.
  • “Amazon Mechanical Turk in Organizational Psychology: An evaluation and practical recommendations,” by coauthor Robert Sinclair, a professor in Clemson’s psychology department, published in the Journal of Business Psychology.
  • “Meditation and Blood Pressure: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Clinical Trials,” by principal author Lu Shi, an associate professor in Clemson’s public health sciences department, published in Journal of Hypertension.
  • “Conditional Race Disparities in Criminal Sentencing: A Test of the Liberation Hypothesis from a Non-Guidelines State,” by coauthor Rhys Hester, an assistant professor in Clemson’s sociology, anthropology and criminal justice department, published in the Journal of Quantitative Criminology.
