    Ting Wang1, Boris Cheval2,3, Silvio Maltagliati4, Zachary Zenko5, Fabian Herold6, Sebastian Ludyga7, Markus Gerber7, Yan Luo8, Layan Fessler4, Notger G. Müller6, Liye Zou1,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.7, pp. 799-812, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.028324

    Abstract Despite the well-established benefits of regular physical activity (PA) on health, a large proportion of the world population does not achieve the recommended level of regular PA. Although affective experiences toward PA may play a key role to foster a sustained engagement in PA, they have been largely overlooked and crudely measured in the existing studies. To address this shortcoming, the Affective Exercise Experiences (AFFEXX) questionnaire has been developed to measure such experiences. Specifically, this questionnaire was developped to assess the following three domains: antecedent appraisals (e.g., liking vs. disliking exercise in groups), core affective exercise experiences (i.e., pleasure vs.… More >

    Ting Wang1,#, Jin Kuang1,#, Fabian Herold2, Alyx Taylor3, Sebastian Ludyga4, Zhihao Zhang1, Arthur F. Kramer5,6, Liye Zou1,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.1, pp. 127-138, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.022504

    Abstract The rising prevalence of physical inactivity is in all age groups (e.g., in college students) a major public health issue as not meeting the recommended minimum amount of regular physical activity is linked to adverse health events. Vice versa, there is mounting evidence that achieving the recommended amount of regular physical activity is a vital element to prevent chronic diseases, but there is often an insufficient adherence to planned and structured forms of physical activity (i.e., physical exercises). In this context, there is a large body of evidence indicating that exercise adherence is, among other factors, influenced by exercise-related affective… More >

    Voice Response Questionnaire System for Speaker Recognition Using Biometric Authentication Interface

    Chang-Yi Kao1, Hao-En Chueh2,*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.35, No.1, pp. 913-924, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.024734


    The use of voice to perform biometric authentication is an important technological development, because it is a non-invasive identification method and does not require special hardware, so it is less likely to arouse user disgust. This study tries to apply the voice recognition technology to the speech-driven interactive voice response questionnaire system aiming to upgrade the traditional speech system to an intelligent voice response questionnaire network so that the new device may offer enterprises more precise data for customer relationship management (CRM). The intelligence-type voice response gadget is becoming a new mobile channel at the current time, with functions of… More >

    Using Sieve of Eratosthenes for the Factor Analysis of Neutrosophic Form of the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire as an Alternative Confirmatory Factor Analysis

    Volkan Duran1, Selçuk Topal2,*, Florentin Smarandache3, Said Broumi4

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.129, No.2, pp. 953-971, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.016696

    Abstract In this study, the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire which was adapted from the short form of the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire was evaluated and this scale into neutrosophic form was converted and the results of the scale were compared for proposing new type confirmatory analysis procedure as well as developing neutrosophic scales. The exploratory factor analysis was used in the analysis of the data. Besides, test results were analyzed for Kaiser–Meyer–Olkin and Bartlett values, common factor variance values, scree plot graphs, and the principal component analysis results. The sample of the study consists of 194 students in mathematics departments at… More >

    Overinvolved/Protective Parenting Questionnaires for Children: A Systematic Review in the Field of Internalizing Problems

    Alysha Lohman1, Jordana K. Bayer1,2,3,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.22, No.4, pp. 203-219, 2020, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2020.011789

    Abstract Overinvolved/protective parenting has emerged in child development literature as part of the etiology of internalizing problems (anxiety/depression). This review aimed to explore overinvolved/protective parenting questionnaires that exist in the internalizing literature for different childhood periods and their psychometric properties (reliability, validity, norms). A systematic review was conducted through seven databases and Google Scholar. Extraction and evaluation of psychometric properties were double coded. Four hundred and sixty publications were screened for eligibility, with 20 of these further assessed. Ten overinvolved/protective parenting questionnaires were described in the literature (between 1993 and 2019) six starting as young as preschool age, two at primary… More >

    Heterogeneous Pricing and Affordability of Residential Natural Gas Consumption: Lifestyle-Driven or Income-Determined?

    Bing Wang1,2,*, Yao Yao1, Liting He1, Xiangqian Pei1

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.3, pp. 111-128, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.010474

    Abstract With the huge increase in natural gas consumption, the distortion of natural gas prices, especially in the residential sector, is prominently shaped into a heavy burden for public finance. Although city gate price and a price linkage mechanism have been established, the price tolerance of residential natural gas should be considered when the price of residential gas fluctuates with the upstream gas price. Determinants of the price affordability of residential natural gas consumption at different economic development levels (Beijing, Nanjing, Zhengzhou) are investigated by field survey and online investigation and analyzed by a factor analysis and discriminant analysis. The results… More >

    Rie Ueno1,*, Darryl Maybery2, Andrea Reupert3, Hirokazu Osada4

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.22, No.2, pp. 59-69, 2020, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2020.011180

    Abstract Children of parents with mental illness are more likely to experience mental health concerns, compared to other children in the community. Thus, it is important mental health professionals identify and intervene appropriately in these families. To develop professional development activities, practice guidelines and organizational supports, it is important to first identify those practices that professionals employ and do not employ. Accordingly, a Japanese version of the Family-Focused Mental Health Practice Questionnaire was developed. In the first instance, the Questionnaire was translated into Japanese and disseminated to mental health workers in various Japanese settings. Based on 212 participants’ data, exploratory factor… More >
