Abstract: With the rise of news aggregators, internet start pages and portal sites, there now exists a chain of sources for any piece of online news. Credible portals sometimes carry news items published by non-credible sources, but do users really factor in all the distal sources or do they rely simply on the proximate source delivering the news? Dual process models in psychology would predict that source is a peripheral cue and only those who are highly involved in the topic of the story would care to dig deeper.
We tested this proposition with a 2 (Issue involvement: High vs. Low) x 2 (Proximal source credibility: High vs. Low) x 2 (Distal source credibility: High vs. Low) full-factorial between-subjects experiment (N = 238) and found that while highly involved readers considered both proximate and distal sources, low-involvement readers were primarily influenced by the proximate source. Implications of these findings are discussed.

Abstract: This paper examined the use of sources in two major U. S. newspapers and two major Japanese newspapers in their coverage of the March 11, 2011 tsunami that struck Japan. Results revealed that both the U.S. and Japanese newspapers did not use social media outlets as sources of information. Furthermore, the combined papers from both nations tended to rely equally on non-official and official sources. Differences, however, were observed between newspapers within each nation.

Abstract: Efficacy-judgments are beliefs about individuals' capability to perform an action. These estimations may have consequences for the courses of action people choose to pursue and the effort they exert in those pursuits. Bandura postulates four sources of efficacy-shaping information: mastery and vicarious experiences, social persuasion, and affective state. We aimed at using qualitative inquiry to elicit self-efficacy sources of student-teachers in a college of education (n=166). The student-teachers were asked to estimate their self-efficacy to teach in a school on a 1-5 point scale. Following their estimations they were asked to reflect on their thoughts, feelings, and beliefs pre-appraising their self-efficacy. Content analysis and strategies of the grounded-theory were used for analysis. Eight sources of self-efficacy were elicited. The theoretical contribution of this case study findings show a need to qualitatively explore well known theories, as qualitative analysis enables a deep understanding and opens new horizons for future search.
