Special Issue of Canadian Journal of Experimental Psychology on "The Production Effect in Memory"
Editors: Glen E. Bodner (University of Calgary), Colin M. MacLeod (University of Waterloo)
The June 2016 issue of Canadian Journal of Experimental Psychology (Vol. 70, Issue 2) features 10 new articles investigating the production effect on memory. The production effect refers to enhanced memory for materials that were produced at study (e.g., those read aloud) relative to materials that were not produced (e.g., those read silently). The effect has generated a wave of interest since being named in 2010—likely because of the simplicity of production tasks and of the substantial memory improvements that they can yield. This special issue of CJEP brings together 10 new studies on the production effect in memory.The issue includes articles co-authored by Bodner and his former graduate student Alex Taikh and his recent Honours thesis student Angela Lambert.
