Dr. Mary Braz co-authored an article published in the January 2013 issue of Human Communication Research. The research investigates how social norms messages influence behavioral change in hand washing among men in public restrooms. The findings of the journal article were widely reported in the popular press, including articles in Discovery News, MSN Health, U.S. News and World Report, and The Examiner. See for example this article in The Examiner.

Here is the full citation of Dr. Braz's published scholarship:
