Page started; David Corwin, 24/05/2012[edit]

I have included a brief introductory summary on David Corwin including some detail but without too much depth

I have headed a biography section and started with his education.
I have written in detail on his career, including groups he has directed and founded and work he has done over the years. Awards he has received may yet be split into a subsection for more comprehensive reading.
I have started a reference section for what I have written, but it needs improving as it is not listed in correct order in the Reflist. Johunter (talk) 06:27, 24 May 2012 (UTC)Johunter (talk · contribs)

Journal Articles added[edit]

I have added a selection of journal articles that are written or co-written by David Corwin. It is acknowledged that the list is not exhaustive, but the aim is to give a range of articles that provide an indication of the type of work Corwin does, so a succint summary of each article is given below each journal reference (and for anyone interested in knowing more, they can follow through on reading the

The last one added is a reference for the original 'Jane Doe' article; because this was something Corwin was heavily involved in a short summary of more depth into the issues surrounding the Jane Doe case will be given. Johunter (talk) 19:28, 08 June 2012 (UTC) Johunter (talk · contribs)

Jane Doe[edit]

I have added a paragraph on the Jane Doe case, of which David Corwin was a central figure. A brief outline of the two videotaped interviews, the conclusions of Corwin, and then the conclusions by Loftus have been discussed. The case has implications on the recovered memory debate.

This is a thorough and well-referenced summary of Corwin's career, with some interesting information about his published work and his involvement in the Jane Doe case.

Above the section on published work, consider creating a "research interests" section that explicitly states Corwins' research interests, then referencing to articles from there - the summaries are useful to anyone wanting to know what the papers are about but make for a long read for someone who just wants to know what Corwin's main body of research is about, what important contributions he has made etc.

Also consider reordering sections so that the Jane Doe case comes above the list & summaries of published works.


References 1, 2, and 3 are not independent sources in the wikipedia sense. 1 is his profile on a conference he appears to have been involved in running. 2 is controlled his employer and 3 is his profile on a social networking site. Alternative sources need to be found for the claims backed up by these sources. Stuartyeates (talk) 09:17, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
