Background: School-aged children are increasingly engaging with multiple conflicting texts to understand complex societal issues, however empirical research has not yet examined in what ways contextual factors affect detection of and memory for conflicts. Methods: The current experiment manipulated contextual factors that included the vocabulary terms that authors of different texts used when describing the same concepts, and the order with which students accessed contradictory information. Results: After controlling for general science knowledge, adolescent students displayed longer reading times when contradictory stances were presented in an alternating fashion than they did when texts were blocked by stance. When text presentation was alternating, students also remembered more conflicts when the texts used the same vocabulary terms than they did when the texts used different vocabulary terms (non-obvious synonyms). However, when adolescents read texts blocked by stance, they remembered a similar number of intertextual conflicts regardless of whether texts used the same or different vocabulary. Conclusions: The findings suggest that different contextual factors can facilitate (but also undermine) propensities to notice and remember conflicts across texts. As such, the findings have important implications for theories of text comprehension and applications for adolescents’ everyday reading experiences.

The files contain the replication data and replication instructions (as STATA do-file) that replicate the results presented in the article: Lujala, Päivi, and Christa Brunnschweiler and Ishmael Edjekumhene 2020. Transparent for whom? Dissemination of information on Ghana’s petroleum and mining revenue management. Journal of Development Studies. The article is an open access article and you can access it through this link: https://doi.org/10.1080/00220388.2020.1746276 The dataset comes from a survey conducted in Ghana between June-August 2016. The purpose of the survey was to study people’s level of knowledge of and perceptions and attitudes towards a number of issues related to petroleum and mining revenue management and to understand how people inform themselves about such matters. The survey sample consists of 3526 adult (18 years and over) respondents, who were interviewed face-to-face. The survey was conducted in 120 of the 216 districts in Ghana at the time (currently Ghana has 260 districts).

Prior prospective memory (PM) research shows paradoxical findings—young adults outperform older adults in laboratory-settings, but the reverse is found in naturalistic settings. Moreover, young-old outperform old-old adults in laboratory-settings, but show no age differences in naturalistic settings. Here we highlight how time-based task characteristics have differed systematically between studies conducted in laboratory (time-interval cues) and naturalistic settings (time-of-day cues) and argue that this apparent paradox is a function of comparing disparate task types. In three experiments, we tested this hypothesis using analogous paradigms across settings, with event-based, time-of-day, and time-interval cued PM tasks. Experiment 1 compared young (n = 40) and older (n = 53) adults on a laboratory paradigm that measured PM tasks embedded in a virtual, daily life narrative; and on a conceptually parallel paradigm using a customized smartphone application (MEMO) in actual daily life. Results revealed that on the MEMO, older adults outperformed young adults on the time-of-day tasks but did not differ on the time-interval or event-based task. In contrast, older adults performed worse than young adults in the laboratory. Experiment 2 compared PM performance in young-old (n = 64) and old-old (n = 40) adults using the same paradigms. Young-old outperformed old-old adults in the laboratory; however, group differences were not evident in daily life. Experiment 3 compared young (n = 42) and older (n = 41) adults, and largely replicated the findings of Experiment 1 using a more demanding version of MEMO. These findings provide novel and important insights into the limiting conditions of the age-PM paradox and the need for a finer theoretical delineation of time-based tasks.

Clinical data of patients with arthroscopically confirmed TFCC lesion including preoperative weight bearing capacity tests. We tested the difference between weight bearing capacity of the injured hand compared to the healthy hand and to the injured hand with WristWidget. Further analysis compared the groups: traumatic vs degenerative lesion; stable vs unstable DRUJ determined by the need for a stabilising operation. Data includes Patient ID, age at time of injury/symptom onset, injured side, etiology, DASH-score, time until examination, pain on forced supination/pronation, clinical stability of the DRUJ, pain on pressure on the ulnar fovea, pain on forced ulnarduction, handgrip of both hands, weight bearing capacity in kg of both hands, weight bearing capacity of both hands with wristwidget, derived variables concerning the weight bearing test, range of motion in degrees for dorsal/palmarflexion, ulnar/radialduction, pro/supination, differentiation between traumatic and degenerative lesions in the MRI report, MRI field strength, static ulnar variance, dynamic ulnar variance in mm, weight bearing test capacity during x-ray, derived variables regarding the weight bearing test, information about stabilising operation, information about intraoperative assessment on type of lesion (traumatic/degenerative). All patients were right hand dominant which is not included in the dataset.
