Book Chapter Suggestions[edit]

Hey there, this sounds like a super interesting topic! Research seems to be a bit thin on the 'meat-eating' motivation isn't it? However, I was able to find this article on implicit attitudes that might help with your research. Hope your chapter goes well! --U3117719 (discusscontribs) 05:11, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Contribution 2[edit]

Hi, such an interesting topic! From a cultural perspective it might be interesting to look at the motivations of diets within Eastern cultures such as Hinduism (with the Hindu people often eating a meat based diet with the exception of eating cows). There is also this recent study that might be helpful, the article looks at the motivations of young vegetarians, low, medium and high meat-eaters. [Aiking, H., Boer, J. d., & Schosler, H. (2017). Towards a reduced meat diet: Mindset and motivation of young vegetarians, low, medium and high meat-eaters. Appetite, 113, 387-397. doi:10.1016/j.appet.2017.03.007]. --U3143109 (discusscontribs) 09:23, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi there, this is a super interesting topic, and really unusual! You've picked a good one! The meat paradox sounds especially interesting, I'm keen to read more about it when you finish your chapter. I really like how you made a note to 'look for a lss political source' as obviously this topic can get pretty controversial, so it's great to see you're keeping it as unbiased and factual as possible! Good luck! --U3142860 (discusscontribs) 01:39, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

This is such a great topic. I think that cognitive dissonance about people who fight for animal rights but still continue to eat meat would be very interesting. This article discuss' this further and may be helfpul for you to look into: This is an idea also, you may want to lay out your page as a for and against- so, people's motivation for eating meat and people's motivation for not eating meat. This seems like a logical structure to me. However, you may have already thought of a better structure, so this is simply a suggestion. Can't wait to read the finsihed product TaylorMal (discusscontribs) 01:25, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

i really enjoy this topic and how you have presented it. i agree that looking at cognitive dissonance would be an interesting topic to look at! this article may help you I am doing a book chapter on cognitive dissonance and emotion so feel free to look at my page as well if you are unsure about dissonance as a theory.

Heading casing[edit]

FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings (or sentence casing). For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==

  2. For additional feedback, see comments below and these copyedits.


  1. Some relevant theories is covered; perhaps more could be consider, or the theories could be covered in more depth.


  1. Relevant research is well reviewed and discussed in relation to theory. Perhaps it could be improved by discussing this research in more depth.
  2. Some statements are unreferenced (e.g., see the [factual?] tags).

Written expression[edit]

  1. Layout
    1. See earlier comments about heading casing.
    2. Sections which include sub-sections should also include an introductory paragraph (which doesn't need a separate heading) before branching into the sub-headings.
  2. Learning features
    1. Interwiki links are well used.
    2. Minimal to no use of images, tables, feature boxes, quizzes, case studies or examples.
  3. Spelling, grammar, and proofreading.
    1. Check and make correct use of commas.
    2. Use serial commas.
    3. Use Australian spelling (e.g., hypothesize vs. hypothesise; behavior vs. behaviour).
  4. APA style
    1. Use APA style for Figure captions.
    2. Citations
      1. For APA style, citations in parentheses use a comma between the author(s) and year
      2. When there are three or more authors, subsequent citations should use et al. e.g., Smith, Bush and Western (2001) and thereafter cite Smith et al. (2001).
      3. Use ampersand (&) inside brackets and "and" outside brackets.
