Marketing Scales Handbook, Volume 8
Call Number: (ebook)
Publication Date: 2015
"The Marketing Scales Handbooks are the longest-running series that provide reviews of multi-item measures used in scholarly studies of consumer behavior. This volume picks up where Volume 7 ended and has reviews of 392 new scales that were reported in top marketing journal articles published in 2012 and 2013. Each review has information about a scale's source, its psychometric quality, who has used it, and the questions/statements that compose the measure. The bulk of the scales in Volume 8 have to do with topics typical to the series such as brands, advertising, shopping, emotion, e-commerce, and health. Other topics in this volume were less covered in previous volumes and have to do with environmental issues (recycling and green products), word-of-mouth activity, international commerce issues (fair trade and off-shoring), and game-playing.The book is a valuable resource to researchers in a variety of fields who want reliable measures for use in their studies of consumers or similar types of participants such as viewers, clients, patients, or citizens. Instead of using simplistic measures of dubious quality or, at the other extreme, having to build and refine measures from scratch, researchers can use the book's contents to learn from the experts who have already vetted the quality of the measures. By using better scales, accuracy is increased and should improve the decisions based upon the results."
