ABSTRACT

Two partly conflicting academic pressures from the seriousness of the Covid-19 pandemic are the need for faster peer review of Covid-19 health-related research and greater scrutiny of its findings. This paper investigates whether decreases in peer review durations for Covid-19 articles were universal across 97 major medical journals, as well as Nature, Science, and Cell. The results suggest that on average, Covid-19 articles submitted during 2020 were reviewed 1.7-2.1 times faster than non-Covid-19 articles submitted during 2017-2020. Nevertheless, while the review speed of Covid-19 research was particularly fast during the first 5 months (1.9-3.4 times faster) of the pandemic (January-May 2020), this speed advantage was no longer evident for articles submitted in November-December 2020. Faster peer review was also associated with higher citation impact for Covid-19 articles in the same journals, suggesting it did not usually compromise the scholarly impact of important Covid-19 research. Overall, then, it seems that core medical and general journals responded quickly but carefully to the pandemic, although the situation returned closer to normal within a year.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the pattern of human life, one of the impacts of this change is people’s economic activities going digital by utilizing supply chain information systems. The purpose of this study is to examine how much influence supply chain information systems have on the growth of the digital economy of developing countries, in this case Indonesia, along with transportation needs for logistics. This paper uses a systems meta-analysis by conducting a survey and review of several articles related to supply chains, digital economy, and logistics that have been published in reputable international journals. Coupled with 55 respondents, 30 endusers, 10 resellers, market place users and drop shippers, as well as 5 domestic logistics service providers. To test the consistency of the answers to the questions that have been asked, validity and reliability tests were conducted. After being calculated using simple statistics, it was found that the supply chain information system after the COVID-19 pandemic was very influential, although partial to the enormous increase in economic growth towards digital and the growth of logistics services had increased.

ABSTRACT

The striking image on the cover of this edition of Teaching Geography reminds us that even though much of our recent time and energy has been focussed on the global pandemic of COVID-19, the climate crisis still looms large. If during the pandemic we relied on computer technology to teach geography, Arnold Reesink's article reminds us of the simple effectiveness that can derive from physical models in the classroom. [...]I would very much encourage everyone to write for Teaching Geography.

ABSTRACT

We are living in times of crisis, at cultural, political, and moral levels. This state of crisis remains among our societies for at least three decades. In this article, we approach the concept of crisis from a review of some works of the Polish sociologist and philosopher, Zygmunt Bauman. As he insisted frequently, also before coining the metaphor of the “liquid modernity,” the changes in the state of things lead to an increasing sense of insecurity. His thesis is that such instability is not necessarily bad. It can be also an opportunity to build a better society. In order to accomplish this goal, it is necessary, first, to identify the root of the crisis, which Bauman finds in the lack of critical sense or ability to question oneself. Second, overcoming the crisis requires reflection upon the issues at stake. According to Bauman, the main issue is the lack of justice in the form of inequity, which needs to be balanced with individual and institutional forms of solidarity. These define the moral priorities to rethink the world we are living in. These principles locate the core of crisis in the moral issue of decision-making and of values, which is the essence of Bauman’s project.

ABSTRACT

The issue of human nature has not been limited in discussing disaster management during these days. This research aims to examine how human nature has been applied to the field to mitigate the various impacts of disasters. Qualitative content analysis, including inference and thematic layers, is used as the main method in comparing the arbitrariness-based with the duality-based aspect of human nature in terms of international organizations, developed nations, and developing nations. The key finding is that these stakeholders need to shift from the arbitrariness-based to the duality-based aspect. Such transition may lead to embracing effective disaster management, multiple emergency plans, self- and public awareness, psychological support, behavior change, diversity, and education. As a multidisciplinary study, this research comprehensively analyzes the contents of human nature within disaster management.

ABSTRACT

In heritage sites and museums, souvenir shops are of considerable commercial importance;furthermore, they add to the overall experience of visitors. This contribution explores the narrative quality of some souvenirs that seek to reflect a country’s history and heritage. Three examples will serve as case studies: (1) souvenirs depicting the Berlin Wall (Germany)—moving from a historical event toward wider-reaching generic ideas, such as freedom;(2) souvenirs commemorating the First World War and their role in the context of the War’s centenary (England);and (3) souvenirs that reflect aspects of dark tourism (various locations). In each case, the narrative attached to the items for sale potentially removes them from the experience of the exhibition. As such, souvenirs in the shop offer an experience in their own right, but they do not necessarily echo the culture, heritage, or history of a region or a country.

ABSTRACT

This study aims to map articles that examine flipbooks as the variables. Scopus and Google Scholar are used to gather the data for this study. The selected articles are those published in international journals and proceedings indexed by Scopus and/or Google Scholar. The data collection applied is a documentation technique. The procedure for data documentation begins with Scopus data containing the article keyword "flipbook in learning". The data from Google Scholar is then cataloged in the Mendeley software. Furthermore, each data is mapped using the VOSviewer software. The data is limited according to the needs of the discussion of the results of the study, namely articles that discuss flipbooks in learning. The data analysis process uses a bibliometric approach. The results show that research on flipbooks in learning published in international journals and proceedings is increasingly in demand, particularly in 2020 and 2021. However, in terms of quantity, flipbook articles still need to be improved. This is following the need for teaching materials, especially teaching materials that can be used during the distance learning system during the COVID-19 pandemic. © 2021 IEEE.

ABSTRACT

[...]there is an increasing representation of women scholars. [...]Indian management scholars have used a variety of methods and they show capacity to employ sophisticated methods and analyses. The study concluded that inclusion results in an atmosphere of openness and dialogue within which participants can share aspects of themselves (the “me”) that might otherwise have been overlooked in the collective identity (the “we”) of the organization. [...]organizations can reap the benefits of diversity only through inclusive approaches and strategies. The results of the study indicated that there are five distinct stages in the development of a start-up entrepreneur, namely, pre-entrepreneurial stage, inflection point, cocoon period, initial stage, crisis stage and, depending upon the success factors and support received during crisis stage, either a success stage or failure stage.

ABSTRACT

Purpose>Job-related diversity is significantly different from demographic diversity, referring to diverse skills, knowledge, and perspectives. Despite the significant relevance of diversity literature, researchers have paid relatively less attention to job-related diversity dimensions like functional, educational, and tenure diversity. This study aims to analyze the scattered job-related diversity literature and identify mediating, moderating, and outcome variables, including dominant theories, methodological practices, and statistical techniques that affect performance outcomes.Design/methodology/approach>This paper consolidates the job-related diversity literature and conducts a systematic review to fill the research gap. This study undertook a systematic review of 101 articles on job-related diversity published between 1991 and 2020 in academic management journals.Findings>This study has synthesized several theoretical frameworks and proposed an integrative framework of job-related diversity for future research and theory development. Conclusively, this study has highlighted the gaps, advanced the knowledge in job-related diversity, and suggested future research avenues and implications.Originality/value>This study is the first systematic review of job-related diversity, which acknowledges the importance of job-related diversity literature. Job-related diversity has received significant attention in the crisis-like situation during COVID-19 to develop innovative ideas and decision-making from different perspectives.

ABSTRACT

A rapidly growing body of scholarly research discusses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the sharing economy (SE). This study aims to employ bibliometric analysis to examine the research themes, scholarly communities, evolution paths and research hotspots of the developing domain of COVID-19's SE research. Adopting an integrated bibliometric approach, this study analyses articles published on Web of Science from 2008 to 2019 and from 2020 to 2021. The outcomes of this study reveal that four new research themes including the COVID-19's impact were updated for the post-pandemic SE research. The scholarly communities' analysis identifies research changes of documents and published journals communities of COVID-19. The results also dig into the evolution path of the topic and instigate further research hotspots toward SE activities. Thus, we contribute to point out the research directions for the opportunities and challenges of SE after the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABSTRACT

Purpose>This paper aims to examine critically the literature on transformational tourism and explore a research agenda for a post-COVID future.Design/methodology/approach>A systematic review of the transformational tourism literature is performed over a 42-year period from 1978 to 2020.Findings>Further research is required in terms of how transformative experiences should be calibrated and measured both in qualitative and quantitative terms, particularly from the perspective of how tourists are transformed by their experiences. Similarly, the nature and depth of these transformative processes remain poorly understood, particularly given the many different types of tourism associated with transformative experiences, which range from religious pilgrimages to backpacking and include several forms of ecotourism.Practical implications>Future research directions for transformational tourism are discussed with regard to how COVID-19 will transform the dynamics of tourism and travel, including the role of new smart technologies in the creation of enhanced transformational experiences, and the changing expectations and perceptions of transformative travel in the post-COVID era. In addition, the researchers call for future studies on transformational tourism to explore the role of host communities in the delivery of meaningful visitor experiences.Originality/value>Transformational tourism is an emerging body of research, which has attracted a growing level of interest among tourism scholars in recent years. However, to this date, a systematic review of published literature in this field has not been conducted yet in a holistic sense. This paper offers a framework for future research in this field.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: Ever since Leo Kanner first described autism in 1943, the research in this field has grown immensely. In 2021 alone, 5837 SCOPUS indexed documents were published with a title that contained the words: "autism", "autistic", or "ASD". The purpose of this study was to examine the most common topics of autism research in 2021 and present a geographical contribution to this research. METHODS: We performed a content analysis of 1102 abstracts from the articles published in 11 Autism journals in 2021. The following journals, indexed by the SCOPUS database, were included: Autism, Autism Research, Molecular Autism, Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, Review Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, Advances in Autism, Autism and Developmental Language Impairments, and Autism in Adulthood. RESULTS: According to the analysis, the main research topics were: mental health, social communication, social skills, quality of life, parenting stress, ADHD, Covid-19, self-efficacy, special education, and theory of mind. In relation to geographic distribution, most studies came from the USA, followed by the UK, Australia, and Canada. CONCLUSION: Research topics were aligned with the priorities set by stakeholders in autism, most notably persons with autism themselves and their family members. There is a big gap in research production between developed countries and developing countries.

ABSTRACT

Scientific fraud represents, to varying degrees, an increasingly important part of medical literature and is estimated to make up nearly 20% of this literature. The increase in the number of articles accessible in preprint without peer review during the COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in the accessibility of fraudulent articles. In recent years, the viral increase in the number of predatory journals has contributed to polluting the scientific literature with articles whose content is unverifiable. Given the international nature of biomedical research, there is an urgent need to define unequivocally what is considered scientific fraud. In order to counter scientific misconduct, national and supranational procedures should be implemented to inform researchers at the beginning of their medical and biomedical training. Ethics commissions should implement local procedures for monitoring ongoing research. Finally, the fight against predatory journals requires information for researchers and the availability of tools to identify these journals.

ABSTRACT

Dissemination has been defined as ‘the targeted distribution of information and intervention materials to a specific public health or clinical practice audience’,1 and as being ‘simply about getting the findings of your research to the people who can make use of them, to maximise the benefit of the research without delay’.2 Ethics guidelines concur that research stakeholders have ethical obligations to disseminate positive, inconclusive or negative results,3 in an accurate, comprehensive and transparent way4—even more so during public health emergencies.5

ABSTRACT

Previous policy allowed such research to remain behind journal paywalls for a year after publication—in effect, a one year embargo before the public gained free access.1 Alondra Nelson, head of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, said, “The American people fund tens of billions of dollars of cutting edge research annually. To support scientific and research integrity, public access policies should transparently inform the public about critical information, said the White House statement, “including that which is related to the authorship, funding, affiliations, and development status of federally funded research.” Statement from Shelley Husband, senior vice president, government affairs, AAP, on decision by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to make private sector publications freely available. 25 Aug 2022. https://publishers.org/news/statement-from-shelley-husband-senior-vice-president-government-affairs-association-of-american-publishers-on-decision-by-white-house-office-of-science-and-techno 3 Nelson A, Executive Office of the President, Office of Science and Technology Policy.

ABSTRACT

Purpose>This study aims to explore past and present service research and to provide a future research agenda for service researchers by presenting a big picture of the intellectual connections and emerging topics in the discipline.Design/methodology/approach>This study is an empirical analysis of citations and cocitations on a sample of 5,837 articles published in leading service journals (from 1981 to December 2020). Network analysis was adopted to analyze the data. This study is exclusive in conducting the inquiry at the individual publication level, rather than using the normal aggregated author co-citation analysis approach.Findings>The findings reveal that the main themes of service research centered on customer satisfaction, service quality, service-dominant logic, methodological foundations, market orientation and service encounter. Also clarified is the periphery domain that may become more important in the future (i.e. technology). The findings also present anchor points for conceptual framing and conceptual development – five main themes that are momentous to navigate theory discovery and justification in the knowledge domain.Research limitations/implications>It calls for a more academic effort to evaluate the service research by considering different epistemological paradigms, such as positivism, monologic and hermeneutic, to better understand the process and progress of the discipline.Practical implications>Through exploring the transformation of service research into a customer-centric model and technology-based service logic, this study offers possible implications for practitioners and further research areas for service researchers.Originality/value>To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this study is the first to use a citation, cocitation and network analysis to examine service research published in leading service journals. This study provides a significant contribution to the theory by combining main conceptual areas and interests in the given discipline.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: There is a large body of research focused on various aspects related to Ramadan intermittent fasting (RIF) and human health and disease. This study aimed to quantify the bibliometric data of RIF medical research over the past seven decades and explore these variables qualitatively via text mining analysis. METHODS: We used the Scopus search engine to identify published articles related to RIF from inception to December 31, 2021. All types of research articles were included. Scientometric and bibliometric measures were determined using Excel, Biblioshiny, and VOSviewer. This study proposed a bibliometric and text mining method to qualitatively and quantitatively recognize the RIF research trend. RESULTS: The Scopus search returned 1915 relevant articles. Most citations pertained to publications from the last two decades, and most publications were original research articles. These publications had received around 27,000 citations, and the 20 most prolific publishing journals had an average h-index of 112.25. More than one-third of all medical publications were in open-access journals. There was a 13-fold increase in medical research on RIF over the past few decades. We identified the 10 most prolific publishing countries, institutes, journals, and authors. We also identified five scientific hotspots of RIF scientific literature, which were: diabetes, metabolic health, public health, physiology, and maternity. CONCLUSION: This is the first comprehensive bibliometric analysis of medical research related to RIF. The research gaps identified will shape future research directions and foster collaborative research activities toward enhanced medical nutrition research revolving around RIF.
