The March issue of Health Communication Science Digest (HCSD or Digest) is now available athttp://www.cdc.gov/healthcommunication/ScienceDigest/index.html.
This month the Digest contains many articles that examine various persuasion propositions (Iguata et al.; Kelly and Hornik; Nabi and Prestin). One of these articles (Kaye et al.) reports on a systematic review of studies using neurocognitive measures that focus on persuasive processing. Other message design issues are also investigated (Hoek et al.; Kim, Shi and Capella). Cole et al., contribute to the topic by presenting amessage development tool.
Two among this month’s articles investigate dissemination of health information through social media(McNeill et al.; Strekalova). The article by Kim et al., suitably complements these reports by presenting a conceptual framework for guiding social media data collection.
Health information seeking is again another popular topic in this month’s Digest (Feinberg et al.; Jensen et al.; Oh and Song). Health literacy is covered by reporting a scale development effort (Matsuoka et al.) and a review of health literacy research and practice (Poureslami et al.).
This month’s Digest also includes two studies using the crisis and emergency risk communication (CERC) framework to examine emergency risk communication practice: Parmer et al., investigate mass media practices, and Vos and Buckner focus on Twitter messages.
Finally, an investigation reporting on the analysis of media dosing on web traffic (Shafer et al.), and exposition on the effects of mass communication on cultural transformation regarding tobacco use (Livingood et al.) wrap up this month’s Digest.
