Publications Database

Welcome to the new Schulich Peer-Reviewed Publication Database!

The database is currently in beta-testing and will be updated with more features as time goes on. In the meantime, stakeholders are free to explore our faculty’s numerous works. The left-hand panel affords the ability to search by the following:

  • Faculty Member’s Name;
  • Area of Expertise;
  • Whether the Publication is Open-Access (free for public download);
  • Journal Name; and
  • Date Range.

At present, the database covers publications from 2012 to 2020, but will extend further back in the future. In addition to listing publications, the database includes two types of impact metrics: Altmetrics and Plum. The database will be updated annually with most recent publications from our faculty.

If you have any questions or input, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Abstract Feeling the sting of another’s injustice is a common human experience.We adopt a motivated information processing approach and explore howindividual differences in social motives (e.g., high vs. low collectivism)and epistemic motives (e.g., high vs. low need for closure) drive individ-uals’ evaluative and behavioral reactions to the just and unjust treat-ment of others. In two studies, one in the laboratory (N =78) and onein the field (N = 163), we find that the justice treatment of others hasa more profound influence on the attitudes and behaviors of prosocialthinkers, people who are chronically higher (vs. lower) in collectivismand lower (vs. higher) in the need for closure. In all, our results suggestthat chronically higher collectivism and a lower need for closure work inconcert to make another’s justice relevant to personal judgment andbehavior.
