  • Capital Structure, Business Strategy and Firm’s Performance:
           Evidence from Pakistan

    • Authors: Talat Afza, Naveed Ahmed
      Abstract: The core objective of the current study is to explore the moderating role of business strategy on the established relationship between capital structure and firm performance by selecting the data of 333 non-financial firms of Pakistan over the period of 2006 to 2013. The empirical results indicate that debt financing is imperative both for the accounting and market performance of the selected firms while attempting to pursue the cost leadership strategy. Moreover, as the firms follow the hybrid strategy, product differentiation strategy and firms with unclear strategic situation, the benefits of debt decreases and incurs a significant performance penalty.

           Context

    • Authors: Nawal G Alghamdi
      Abstract: The present world is full of challenges and busy routines, the responsibilities and tasks carried by a teacher are physically and mentally demanding. The teachers are required to utilize loads of energy in their daily duties in the educational institutes along with their personal and family commitments. Especially in the case of a female, the responsibilities are doubled as a female has to strike a balance between her job and family life. This balancing act of hers put piles of stress on her. More than ever before excessive work is seen as a mean of job stress. The main objective of the current study was to investigate role overload as a predictor of job stress among university teachers. The study also intended to find the differences that may exist among the married and unmarried females in experiences of role overload and job stress. The study sample consisted of 100 university female teachers from two campuses of King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah. The study variables of role overload and job stress were measured by Reilly Role Overload Scale and Job Stress Survey. A demographic sheet was used to collect the demographic variables. Results of the study were analyzed through SPSS ver 21. Statistical tools applied for analysis consisted of correlation analysis and t-tests. The results of regression analysis indicated that role overload is a significant predictor of job stress. The findings of the t-test revealed that there is no significant difference in the role overload and job stress among the married and unmarried female university teachers.

  • Relationship between psychological hardiness and self-efficacy in patients
           with type 2 diabetes: (The mediating role of self-esteem and social
           support) using structural equation modeling

    • Authors: Sayed Habibollah Hashemi, Hassan Ahadi, Mehrnaz Azad Yekta
      Abstract: According to the importance of type 2 diabetes and the variety and intensity of physical, mental, economic and social effects and factors such as psychological hardiness, self-efficacy, self-esteem, social support to manage treatment of this type of diabetes, this study is aimed in assessing the model of relationship of hardiness with self-efficacy with the mediating role of self-esteem and social support in these patients. In a cross-sectional survey, 212 patients with type 2 diabetes (90 male and 122 female) in Health Centers of Islmashahr were selected using available random sampling. The data collection was done using psychological hardiness scale, Coppersmith self-esteem inventory, self-efficacy and social support scales and the data were then analyzed using structural equation modeling (SEM) using Lisrel and SPSS-22 software. Correlation of main research variables were tested using Pearson correlation test and normality of variables were tested using regression analysis. Then, model fitness and coefficients of variables were measured. Most paths with significant coefficients were maintained in final model. The results obtained from the study are as follows: 1) psychological hardiness can affect self-efficacy directly 2) psychological hardiness can affect self-efficacy indirectly with the mediation of social supports and self-esteem 3) the proposed model is fit based on obtained fitness indices (GFI= 0.94; AGFI= 0.93; RMSEA= 0.032; NNFI= 0.94; SRMR= 0.031; NFI= 0.97 and IFI= 0.97). The correlations between variables in this study are mostly in consistence with the existing literature and theories. It could be concluded that variables such as psychological hardiness, self-efficacy, self-esteem and social support have been considered as effective factors to manage and treat patients with type 2 diabetes in domestic and foreign literature. The proposed model shows potential infrastructural mechanisms that can facilitate the process of treatment and better coping and even reduction of costs of the disease through training patients and their families under current social and economic conditions of Iran. Due to the applied significance of the results for clinical specialists and diabetes treatment centers, appropriate interventions are required in this filed. Paying attention to these results is important to enhance self-care behaviors of diabetes, reduction of complications and reduction of relevant costs and more importantly, general health of society.

  • Estimating Long-run Trade Elasticity in Pakistan: A Co-integration
           Approach

    • Authors: Hina Ali, Subata Zafar
      Abstract: The analysis of this study is to monitor the effect of currency depreciation on trade elasticity, using co integration technique of ARDL. The Robust ARDL structure has been used to format the bound testing approach to co-integration model and error correction model. The bound test holds that there exists a long term stable relationship between BOP and its determining factors. The real GDP makes the balance of payment positive, both in long and short run. The study is based upon time series data (1974-2014). For estimation purpose, Johansen –Cointegration technique has been used and integration order has been applied for each variable before applying co-integration technique. This research actually seeks to examine the trade growth factors from period (1974-2014). The ARDL (autoregressive distributed lag model) examines the long run elasticity of trade. The shown technique has been collaborated through ADF test. All of the variables are incorporated at first difference i.e. I(1) accept one variable, which is GDP.ADF (augmented dickey- fuller) unit root test has been applied to examine the stationary time series data. Equation has been constructed for terms of trade and other independent variables to examine their long- run relation. ARDL shows that there is co-integration between trade growth and other independent variables i.e. GDP, CPI, NEER, NEER, IMP, EXP and also with the dependent variable TOT. Clearly, it can be noticed that the long- run relationship exists between these variables. It could be observed that “Marshal-Lerner condition” is true for Pakistan as well as for other underdeveloped countries.

According to the results, extraversion personality characteristic can be anticipated through dependency, suffering, restraint and abandonment. Also, the dependent variable of neuroticism personality characteristic can be predicted by four predictors of emotional deprivation, dependency, suffering, and abandonment. The dependent variable of openness personality trait can also be predicted by two predictors of distrust and obedience. The dependent variable of compatibility personality trait can be traced through three predictors of mistrust, defect and emotional deprivation as well. Finally, the dependent variable of being conscientious can be anticipated by three predictors of emotional deprivation, defect and social isolation. Accordingly, it can be concluded that personality characteristics and early maladaptive schemas appropriately predict the factors increasing or decreasing the tendency to addiction.

  • Written Corrective Feedback in Second Language Writing: Does SEMI-Feedback
           Suffice'

    • Authors: Mobin Khanlarzadeh, Puyan Taheri
      Abstract: Despite the multitude of studies on the effectiveness of written corrective feedback (WCF) in helping learners improve their grammatical accuracy, SLA research has scarcely explored whether there is a reliable alternative to typical WCF. In an attempt to investigate whether there are other options to address learners' written grammatical errors, the present study employed a pre-test-immediate posttest-delayed posttest design to compare the effects of indirect focused WCF with sample enhanced motivating input (SEMI) on the accuracy with which EFL learners used English articles to express first and second mention in narrative writing tests. Using three intact intermediate classes totaling 46 EFL students who ranged in age from 15 to 18, three groups were formed: (1) a WCF group (n = 17) who received indirect focused WCF along with written metalinguistic information, (2) a SEMI group (n = 15) who received SEMI-feedback (a writing sample the focused structures of which are enhanced) along with written metalinguistic information, and (3) a control group (n = 14) who received no corrective feedback. While no difference in effectiveness was found between WCF and SEMI, both of the experimental groups outperformed the control group on the immediate and delayed posttests. The results of the study suggest that, given its high practicality, SEMI-feedback can be considered a reliable alternative to focused WCF for addressing students' grammatical errors.
