Journal Articles..
08-13-2009 2:29 AM

I'd like to use my access to article databases to find and post full articles that are relevant to the topic of pheromones. I'm not sure if: A) this is legal. B) if you're interested in these lengthy, often dense articles and C) what terms to search for exactly. I'm not able to get access to all the articles, it seems like the university only has access to a portion of the listed articles. I'll be asking the librarians about it later, but until then does anyone have comments, questions, suggestions?

Usually full PDFs are available, if I can get my hands on them, I have no problem uploading them, as long as there's no problem with hosting them here.

You are welcome to post any articles or studies you find Phya. We have no problem hosting the articles and I can't see any legal issues in providing articles that are already publicly, or at least semi-publicly available.

We have a dedicated server with plently of bandwidth, and I currently only have about 20 low usage websites on the server.

Post to your hearts content. It might be better to convert them to .txt files and post them in threads rather than uploading the pdf's though, as that would allow for them to be included when using the search function.

If you don't have the ability to convert them, I could do it for you, just let me know.

Phya, if it's the article database I'm thinking of, you might have licensing issues. Check with your librarians about their license terms.

Mtnjim, it probably is the database you're thinking of. I will definitely check with them about the licensing terms. At the very least, the abstracts should be okay to post, right?

Depending on license, I'm thinking Abstract OK, full article no-no.

This white paper:

http://senseofsmell.org/papers/Human_Phe...-15-09.pdf

was referenced in an article in the July 30, 2009 New York Times

"Banking on a Chemical Reaction" The NYTimes article quotes me and mentions my manufacturer and marketer with links to their sites. My marketer banned me from his Forum.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/30/fashio...l?emc=eta1

The white paper is succinct and summarizes most of what is known, with the exception of the latest research being presented at scientific conferences.

Wow, James Kohl has already found his way here as well! Thanks for gracing us with your presence. I haven't finished reading your white paper yet, but I definitely will when I have the time. Thank you for sharing it with us.

I haven't looked into it completely, but I noticed a study done with two female twins and androstenone (among other bodily odors) was mentioned. From what I was able to read, it seemed that the two twins were raised in different environments, and the main point I'd like to read about is if those two twins reacted differently to the androstenone, or if they reacted similarly. Depending on the reaction, there may be a basis for claiming reactions to pheromones are culturally based, rather than genetically based, which is something that is often claimed (ie: Asians need less -none, Africans need more -none). I was only able to get a small excerpt, but the part I did read mentioned that one twin preferred coffee while the other preferred tea, indicating those preferences were probably due to cultural differences, but both twins did not like fish, despite fish being a major staple in Korea where one of the two twins was raised, perhaps indicating that the dislike for fish was genetic.

Either way, I still need to talk to my librarians and see what I'm able to post and gain access to.

When sample size is small, study results don't tell us much about the differences between people/groups. From a biological perspective, culture may enter the picture because social cues are associated with changes in hormone levels (and thus associated with changes in behavior: for example, a response to androstenone).

Thank you for the welcome; I'm here to try and correct some problems that marketers have created. If there's a specific article you need, I may be able to provide it.

I plan to learn more about the U.S. subsidiary of the international chemical and consumer giant Schwarzkopf and Henkel: Dial Corporation, since they now have a "pheromone-infused" product on the market, and claim in their on-line advertising that androstadienone acts via the human VNO. As some of you here may know, I've fought against this type of misinformation for many years. You may remember the psychobabble of DrSmellThis and the since-convicted Aerchtypical Hybrid. Now we have a major corporation claiming that androstadienone does something beneficial via what research says is a non-functional organ. Admittedly, their marketing ploy is more advanced technologically than any other. But, in my opinion, it's still a ploy.
