Comment[edit source]

Hello, I noticed that in your overview you have referenced APA 6th edition style instead of 7. In the new edition for in-text citation for a work with three or more authors, include the name of only the first author plus "et al." in every citation. I hope you don't mind that I've made these changes. Your topic chapter is really robust, good work! --U3065868 (discusscontribs) 08:32, 12 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hi! Book chapter is looking great so far and really interesting read! I liked your inclusion of reflective exercises. I think your chapter would benefit from including some possible answers to these reflection activities or possible case studies to solidify knowledge in your reader. All the best for the rest of this chapter! --Anna u3200574 (discusscontribs) 08:26, 17 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Comment[edit source]

Hello, this is a great topic, just thinking it would be very interesting to explore the reasons people might be skeptical and misinformation affects people's motivation to get the vaccine. Thank you, Ksenia --Takudzwa14 (discusscontribs) 09:21, 11 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Comment[edit source]

Hello, I can see that you have mentioned the relationship between parents and vaccination and the health outcomes for children. I think you will find this thesis by Cathy Frazer very helpful It discusses how important it is to ensure effective science communication is provided to parents for the immunisation of children in order to protect children against preventable diseases. This is very current topic for a book chapter and is very pertinent in the current climate, best of luck. Thank you, Ksenia --U3217975 (discusscontribs) 06:17, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the recommended Wikiversity heading style uses sentence casing. For example:

Self-determination theory rather than Self-Determination Theory

Here's an example chapter with correct heading casing: Growth mindset development

Headings[edit source]

  1. Promising 2-level heading structure - could benefit from further development by expanding the structure.
  2. Avoid having sections with 1 sub-heading - use 0 or 2+ sub-headings.
  3. See earlier comment about Heading casing.


  1. Basic development of key points for most sections, with relevant citations
  2. Target an international audience; Australians only represent 0.33% of the world population
  3. Covid-19 -> COVID-19 (capitalisation)
  4. Overview - Consider adding:
    1. focus questions
    2. an image
    3. an example or case study
  5. For sections which include sub-section include key points for an overview paragraph prior to branching into the sub-headings
  6. Perhaps also consider:
    1. needle fear
    2. misinformation
    3. cognitive biases:
  7. Good balance of theory and research
  8. Expand theory and research
  9. Include in-text interwiki links for the first mention of key terms to relevant Wikipedia articles and/or to other relevant book chapters
  10. Avoid overcapitalisation (APA style) - more info
  11. Conclusion (the most important section):
    1. hasn't been developed
    2. what might the take-home, practical messages be?
    3. in a nutshell, what are the answer(s) to the question(s) in the sub-title?

Helpful article[edit source]

Hi, your chapter looks like it coming together nicely! I have found an article for your "social identity and misinformation" section that may help provide an additional explanation in regard to group membership and norms during the COVID-19 pandemic. Marmarosh et al. (2020) break down the effects of the pandemic and quarantining into sizable bites, notably a section about group cohesion in times of distress and loneliness and the benefits of groups. The recency of the COVID-19 pandemic means the article is very current, although, literature continues to grow as the pandemic continues. I hope this resource is valuable to your chapter progression. --CharliU3203035 (discusscontribs) 23:56, 5 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Discussion[edit source]

@U3020459: This resource seems a bit biased. I started a general discussion about this topic over at [1] and rather than repeat myself here, I'll invite you to have a look and join that discussion if you wish. Personally, while I don't object to vaccination per se I do object to vaccination mandates and believe it is in the public interest for others to do so as well. There seems to be a frequent presumption (not just in this resource) that many of those people who object are "misinformed" and phrases like "vaccine hesitancy" presume indecisiveness. Please join the discussion on the main covid-19 talk page if you are interested. I encourage you to consider what I've written there. AP295 (discusscontribs) 13:43, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
