Opening the Black Box of Social Cognitive Mapping
Neal, Zachary P.; Neal, Jennifer Watling
Social Development, v22 n3 p604-608 Aug 2013
This article provides Zachary P. Neal and Jennifer Watling Neal's response to Thomas W. Farmer and Hongling Xie's commentary on Neal and Neal's "Multiple Meanings of Peer Groups in Social Cognitive Mapping." Neal and Neal assert that many of Farmer and Xie's comments highlight the motivation behind their original article, namely that social cognitive mapping (SCM) is a black box method. Here, they focus on clarifying their original claims and correcting misstatements in Farmer and Xie's commentary. Neal and Neal conclude by introducing a new SCM program that they hope will facilitate future research using this method. [For Farmer and Xie's commentary, see EJ1014445.]
