Is There A Clubbing Effect Underlying Chinese Research Citation Increases?, Li Tang, Philip Shapira, Jan Youtie 2014 SelectedWorks

Is There A Clubbing Effect Underlying Chinese Research Citation Increases?, Li Tang, Philip Shapira, Jan Youtie

Philip Shapira

There is increasing evidence that citations to Chinese research are rising sharply. A variety of explanations have been explored in previous studies. This research aims to explore another potential explanation – whether there exists a “clubbing” effect in China’s surge in research citations, in which a higher rate of internal citing takes place among Chinese most influential researchers. Focusing on the most highly cited research articles in nanotechnology, we found that a larger proportion of Chinese nanotechnology research citations are localized within individual, institutional and national boundaries. Both descriptive and statistical tests suggest that highly cited Chinese papers are more ...

Response To Questions In The First White Paper, 'Modernizing The Communications Act', Randolph J. May, Richard A. Epstein, Justin (Gus) Hurwitz, Daniel Lyons, James B. Speeta, Christopher S. Yoo 2014 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Response To Questions In The First White Paper, 'Modernizing The Communications Act', Randolph J. May, Richard A. Epstein, Justin (Gus) Hurwitz, Daniel Lyons, James B. Speeta, Christopher S. Yoo

Faculty Scholarship

The House Energy and Commerce Committee has begun a process to review and update the Communications Act of 1934, last revised in any material way in 1996. As the Committee begins the review process, this paper responds to questions posed by the Committee that all relate, in fundamental ways, to the question: "What should a modern Communications Act look like?"


The Response advocates a "clean slate" approach under which the regulatory silos that characterize the current statute would be eliminated, along with almost all of the ubiquitous 'public interest' delegation of authority found throughout the Communications Act. The replacement regime ...


The Constitutionality Of A Federal Emissions Trading Regime, Kai D. Sheffield 2014 Western University

The Constitutionality Of A Federal Emissions Trading Regime, Kai D. Sheffield

Western Journal of Legal Studies

It is impossible to know in advance what legal form, if any, Canada’s emissions trading regime will ultimately take. However, the current Conservative government’s explicit policy of replicating the United States’ greenhouse gas reduction goals and legislation offers some clues. Based on the government’s legislation and rulemaking thus far, the emissions trading regime that emerges in the short term may be an informal collection of emissions trading provisions contained in industry-specific regulations passed under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act. Such a regime may not be the most effective in staving off climate change, but it will impose ...


The Great Leap Forward That Never Was, Uwe Muegge 2014 SelectedWorks

The Great Leap Forward That Never Was, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

Ten years ago, machine translation (MT) was very much a niche technology for translation professionals. MT tools were expensive, supported only a small number of language pairs, and did not play nice with many standard translation tools. Today, MT is available either for free or at very low cost, in thousands of language combinations, and many translation memory systems offer integrated MT functionality. In other words, MT has evolved by leaps and bounds. As the number of translation professionals who post-edit raw MT has increased dramatically over the past 10 years, the big question is whether developments in post-editing have ...


Can Fixation On Main Images Predict Visual Appeal Of Homepages?, Soussan Djamasbi, Marisa Siegel, Tom Tullis 2014 Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Can Fixation On Main Images Predict Visual Appeal Of Homepages?, Soussan Djamasbi, Marisa Siegel, Tom Tullis

User Exprience and Decision Making Research Laboratory Publications

Research suggests that a main image on a homepage creates a distinct visual hierarchy that maybe inherently appealing to people. This in turn suggests that main images may play an important role in shaping user aesthetic reactions to a homepage. Research also shows that images of people are effective in drawing attention and that these images are pleasing to users. Grounded in these two lines of research, we show that fixation on main images has significant positive relation to visual appeal ratings of 24 homepages. We also show that when images of people are included in the main image, they ...


Acquiring Nanotechnology Capabilities: Role Of Mergers And Acquisitions, Jan Youtie, Luciano Kay 2014 SelectedWorks

Acquiring Nanotechnology Capabilities: Role Of Mergers And Acquisitions, Jan Youtie, Luciano Kay

Jan Youtie

Mergers and acquisitions (M&As) are an important but unstudied aspect of nanotechnology’s evolution. This paper uses case review and bibliometric analysis to examine 20 M&As involving acquired firms in the nanotechnology domain. The guiding proposition is acquired firms provide complementarities to the acquiring firms. Key measures given consideration include the nature of the post-acquisition organization, whether the pre-acquisition geographic location is retained, the purpose of the acquisitions as indicated in news releases, and the extent of similarity in research publications and patents. Differences by the country of the acquiring firm and sub-industry are noted. Within the limitations ...


Economic Gardening: Capacity Building For Stronger Regions, Patrice Braun, Jessie Harman, Frank Paton 2014 Southern Cross University

Economic Gardening: Capacity Building For Stronger Regions, Patrice Braun, Jessie Harman, Frank Paton

Journal of Economic and Social Policy

Economic stimulation on the local level is increasingly being recognised as the key to regional resilience. As such, regional capacity building initiatives have moved into endogenous development models that build on the local economic context, embedded competencies and social structures.

Illustrating an endogenous regional development initiative, this paper discusses a recent program in regional Victoria based on ‘economic gardening’ principles of infrastructure, information and connections and tailored to the specific needs of small-to-medium enterprises with high growth potential.

The program brought together three tiers of government and the regional university to increase innovative capacity and performance of manufacturers in the ...

The Myth Of The Early Aviation Patent Hold-Up – How A U.S. Government Monopsony Commandeered Pioneer Airplane Patents, Ron D. Katznelson, John Howells 2014 SelectedWorks

The Myth Of The Early Aviation Patent Hold-Up – How A U.S. Government Monopsony Commandeered Pioneer Airplane Patents, Ron D. Katznelson, John Howells

Ron D. Katznelson

The prevailing historical accounts of the formation of the U.S. aircraft “patent pool” in 1917 assume the U.S. Government necessarily intervened to alleviate a patent hold-up among private aircraft manufacturers. We show these accounts to be inconsistent with the historical facts. We show that despite the existence of basic aircraft patents, aircraft manufacturers faced no patent barriers in the market dominated by Government demand. We show that the notion of the aircraft patent hold-up is a myth created by Government officials and used to persuade Congress to authorize eminent domain condemnation of basic aircraft patents. Government officials used ...


A Quality Approach To Tacit Knowledge Capture: Effective Practice To Achieving Operational Excellence, William G. Dzekashu, Walter R. McCollum PhD 2014 Walden University

A Quality Approach To Tacit Knowledge Capture: Effective Practice To Achieving Operational Excellence, William G. Dzekashu, Walter R. Mccollum Phd

International Journal of Applied Management and Technology

Knowledge loss resulting from an aging workforce continues to be a management nightmare that has obliged many organizational leaders to develop strategies aimed at documenting mission-critical knowledge. Yet knowledge captured and stored in repositories continues to lack quality. The purpose of this study was to explore the impact of integrating quality management into the tacit knowledge capture process. Further studies on the effects of personality in the knowledge capture processes could lead to insights on reasons for diminished knowledge quality. From a social perspective, the implementation of a model that encompasses personality and quality management could improve decision-making processes.
