Human agency beliefs influence behaviour during virtual social interactions

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Tjeerd Boonstra –– The study shows that how people interact in a virtual environment depends on whether they perceive their virtual partner as human or controlled by a computer algorithm. These findings are relevant for researchers studying social interactions and developers of virtual interfaces.
Constructing three emotion knowledge tests from the invariant measurement approach

Bruno Gomes –– Despite lacking some importante informations in Methods, the paper address important questions applying the Rasch psychometric analysis in a original manner.
Newly incident cannabis use in the United States, 2002–2011: a regional and state level benchmark

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Lucy Troup –– We are in the midst of a "cannabis revolution" the more solid science we have to help us understand the good the bad and the ugly the better informed we can be in our understanding of cannabis. This in turn will enable a sound basis for communicating to the wider community.
Using electroretinograms and multi-model inference to identify spectral classes of photoreceptors and relative opsin expression levels

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Magnus Johnson –– It has an interesting use of Akaikes Information Criterion to assist with choosing spectral templates.
