Abstract

In the past decades, the unprecedented number of women in entrepreneurship has been overwhelmingly increasing. This was fueled by their motivation to earn independently and to uplift their economic condition. This paper magnified the stories of success and failures of women micro entrepreneurs in managing their ‘sari-sari’ stores. Informants of this multiple case study were five women micro-entrepreneurs who had been in business for at least five years. An in-depth interview was done and cross case analysis was employed. Results revealed that new investments, enhanced family income, productivity, and resourcefulness were the stories that they highlighted as success. On the stories of failures, they emphasized that business breakdowns and personal crisis once confronted their operation. They also revealed that failures framed them to be determined, faithful, diligent, and optimistic. Lastly, they shared significant insights that women entrepreneurs must be business oriented, develop people skills, and employ a strong will power. These women entrepreneurs have their own way of defining moments relative to success and failures in micro entrepreneurship. What is worth noting is the fact that the innumerable failures which confronted them shaped the entrepreneurial traits they now possessed and achieved the optimum success in their entrepreneurial journey.

Astratto

Abstract

The digitization of the administration and the governance process implies a number of advantages that we cannot ignore, but these advantages are supported by a series of disadvantages and unforeseen situations, but by far the biggest threat is Cyberterrorism. Romania aims both to encourage the indigenous information environment and the services specific to the information society, but also to ensure the fulfilment of the objectives assumed in the area of national security and to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of citizens. Currently anyone can be the target of a cyber-attack, and the most important state institutions are usually the first ones targeted. The weak point remains the human factor, the user of the computer system. That is why in any strategy of “Cybersecurity” its awareness and training from the point of view of computer security plays a vital role. The fact that so far, no attacks have been reported with major impact on public institutions, strategic companies with state and / or private capital or critical infrastructure elements, denotes that the strategy adopted by Romania is a viable one, but must be constantly updated in depending on the dynamics of the threats.

Abstract

In recent years, despite the fact that women have become more and more involved in business life as a result of economic, social and cultural developments, the proportion of women in the managerial staff and leaders is very low. In terms of female labor force, there are some barriers as well as many advantages. One of these barriers is the glass ceiling syndrome mentioned most often in business world. This is a qualitative research which examines the effects of glass roof syndrome and career barriers on job motivation. The sample group for the research comprises 33 women working in private sector. The findings of the research reveal that women who do not get their deserved promotions have low motivation. Being unmotivated leads some women to reduce their job performances, on the other hand this leads some women to work more motivatedly. Women should be guided and psychological support should be given for career planning in institutions they work for. The absence of gender discrimination and the appreciation of women as a result of their achievements will increase their motivations in workplaces and this will help institutions they work for achieve their goals more quickly.

This paper attempted to analyze how public managers use performance information at Tanzania Public Service College (TPSC), Tabora campus. It based on self-reported performance information. We systematically reviewed the TPSC Self-Evaluation Study Report (2019); TPSC Service Delivery Survey report, 2016; TPSC steering committee report, 2017; and TPSC performance reports of 2016-2019.

This can be attributed to the nature of vertical information flow in TPSC. Second, there is weak culture of performance information use, paucity of performance information, lack of institutionalization of information and support from TPSC top leadership, which could facilitate strong internal use of performance data and in turn, improve organizational performance. Based on the findings, the paper offers recommendations to encourage performance information use at TPSC and NACTE, and points to new avenues for future research.

Self-Plagiarism in AAAS Science Article about Pubpeer’s President, Brandon Stell

Pubblicato online: 16 Jul 2020
Pagine: 171 - 178

Astratto

Abstract

In publishing ethics, self-plagiarism or text recycling is subject to a correction or retraction. This paper examines a high-profile case of ethical exceptionalism in the publishing status quo. Jennifer Couzin-Frankel, a science writer for the magazine Science, published by The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), was the first reporter to publicly reveal the identity of Brandon Stell, the President of The PubPeer Foundation, which owns PubPeer, a science whistle-blower website. The AAAS is a Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) member publisher. Couzin-Frankel published two articles, one of which self-plagiarized (i.e., the use of text written by the same person but not properly cited, or acknowledged) about 25% of text in the other article. Couzin-Frankel has also employed nested self-citation, which is the citation of a separate part of a paper such as a table or text box, to give the impression of a separate publication. These aspects call into question how strictly information is vetted and edited at AAAS’s Science. Despite alerting the AAAS, this heavily self-plagiarized paper has not been corrected or retracted. How then do the AAAS and COPE justify the continued publication of both texts?

Abstract

Big Data has become a significant concern of the world, along with the era of digital transformation. However, there are still many young people, especially in developing countries, who are not yet aware of the security of their big data, especially personal data. Misuse of information from big data often results in violations of privacy, security, and cybercrime. This study aims to determine how aware of the younger generation of security and privacy of their big data. Data were collected qualitatively by interviews and focus group discussions (FGD) from. Respondents were undergraduate students who used social media and financial technology applications such as online shopping, digital payments, digital wallet and hotel/transportation booking applications. The results showed that students were not aware enough and understood the security or privacy of their digital data, and some respondents even gave personal data to potentially scam sites. Most students are not careful in providing big data information because they are not aware of the risks behind it, socialization is needed in the future as a step to prevent potential data theft.

Abstract

In publishing ethics, self-plagiarism or text recycling is subject to a correction or retraction. This paper examines a high-profile case of ethical exceptionalism in the publishing status quo. Jennifer Couzin-Frankel, a science writer for the magazine Science, published by The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), was the first reporter to publicly reveal the identity of Brandon Stell, the President of The PubPeer Foundation, which owns PubPeer, a science whistle-blower website. The AAAS is a Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) member publisher. Couzin-Frankel published two articles, one of which self-plagiarized (i.e., the use of text written by the same person but not properly cited, or acknowledged) about 25% of text in the other article. Couzin-Frankel has also employed nested self-citation, which is the citation of a separate part of a paper such as a table or text box, to give the impression of a separate publication. These aspects call into question how strictly information is vetted and edited at AAAS’s Science. Despite alerting the AAAS, this heavily self-plagiarized paper has not been corrected or retracted. How then do the AAAS and COPE justify the continued publication of both texts?
