      Abstract: The aim of the study is to reveal the empirical trends in the tourism literature by analyzing the experimental researches carried out in the field of tourism in terms of bibliometric. The research data comprise 648 studies published “empirical” and “experimental” topic title between 1982-2017 in the top five tourism journals according to the Journal Citation Reports which are Tourism Management(TM), Journal of Travel Research(JTR), Journal of Sustainable Tourism(JST), Cornell Hospitality Quarterly(CHQ) and Annals of Tourism Research(ATR) indexed in "Hospitality, Leisure, Sport and Tourism" research area. The journals are examined in terms of publication numbers by years, country cooperations, common publication citation networks and topic orientations. Social network analysis has been used to determine the country collaborations, common publication citation networks and topic orientations. According to the results obtained in the study; %92,1 of publications were published after 2000. 58.5% of the publications were published between 2011 and 2017. USA and Spain have an important role in country cooperations. “Multivariate Data Analysis” written by Joseph F. Hair, Jr et al. in 2010 is the most basic reference source that guides the studies.

  • Influence of Spatial Factors and Types of Studies On E-Learning
           Classification upon Time-Based Criterion

    • Authors: Arman Mirmanov; Elmira Sarsembiyeva, Murat Shukraliyev
      Abstract: This paper is devoted to the classification of e-learning and its main criterion: synchronicity and asynchrony of student-teacher interaction.The necessity to change the educational process is considered in order to ensure its compliance with the requirements of the modern information-oriented society. Opinions of e-learning classification are presented. Specific features of classification at time factor are discussed. Concept representations of synchronous and asynchronous learning are given; an example of holding one and the same seminar for different types of learning is cited. Positive and negative sides for each seminar are shown. The concept of "space" is introduced to the systems of time-based e-learning classification. A different view is presented on the classification of e-learning technologies, to a greater extent having an engineering approach and based on computer technologies and communication techniques. On the basis of the combinations of the concepts "time" and "space", the quadrants time and space dependent / in dependent are formed. The main advantage of this classification is the coverage of all e-learning tools. Rendering of such symbiosis is given. The influence of individual and group sessions on the classification model at time factor is reviewed and analyzed. Based on this analysis, the teacher can choose his own scenario of conducting classes.

  • Determinants of Investment at the Individual Level - Evidence from SACCOS
           in Mbeya District, Tanzania

    • Authors: Momole Kasambala
      Abstract: Investment is the corner stone for economic growth and development. Poor countries experience a scant growth of their economy simply because of minute investment at the individual to national level. In these less developed economiesinvestment has been hampered by insufficient capital to support a viable business enterprise. External financing is required to reverse this trend. Experience shows that the provision of credit is the preeminent way to increase capital for investment. There have been several credit providers in developing countries namely, the formal, semiformal, and informal sources. While the formal and semiformal sources dominate in urban areas, the informal ones seem to dominate in rural areas. Many of the formal sources require credit to be secured by tangible assets. Unlike other credit lines like banks, credit from saving and credit cooperative (SACCOS) are issued without delay because credit worthiness can be established easily. These SACCOS normally operate within the premises of members and are well positioned to serve poor people both in urban and rural areas.This study was conducted to assess the determinants of investment at the individual level. Multistage and simple random sampling techniques were used to select the study area and respondents. The sample includes 239 SACCOS members and 241 non members. Data analysis employed both descriptive statistics and Ordinary least square regression methods. The study examines achievement differences in terms of the investment level achieved by SACCOS and non SACCOS members in order to determine the attributed factors to their success. The study provides sufficient evidence to support the proposition that acquisition of credit is important for investment at an individual level at P<0.001.

Hierarchical regression analysis was conducted using the Baron and Kenny (1986) method (four steps of mediation analysis). And the result shows partial mediation had occurred. Conclusions: The findings of this study on the relationship between LSE and managerial job performance are in concord with previous studies. Further, future studies should consider the other dimensions of interest.

  • A Survey of Lending Relationship Between SMEs and Banks

    • Authors: Ayse Altiok Yilmaz
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to examine the lending relationships between banks and SMEs. Numerous authors have investigated the importance of banking relationships in lending to small businesses. A major issue is the relative difficulty in obtaining meaningful information and accurately assessing the credit worthiness of such borrowers. For this reason, many authors have examined the influence of this relationship on various aspects of line of credits made in different countries but up to date no studies has been conducted in lending relationship of SMEs with banks in Turkey. This may be because of the data insufficiency of SMEs. This research aims to fill that gap by looking at the determinants of SME lending conditions by using the survey results of SMEs.The factors that affect the dependent variables (the  interest rate and the credit line volume) is tested by  using the ordinary least squares (OLS) regression analysis. The data is obtained by the questionnaires conducted by 204 SMEs. The results for credit interest rate reveals that age, financial distress, duration of relationship, recent ownership change and location significantly affect the interest rate given by the most actively worked bank. The  empirical results suggest that close and long-lasting relationship is desirable for firms. Firms with long-lasting bank relationships fare better than other enterprises in terms of interest rates, and credit availability.

  • Interest Free Salary-Workers Savings and Credit Co-Operative Society as A
           Panacea to Economic Hardship Faced By Workers in A Depressed Economy

    • Authors: Nasiru Bello Wailare
      Abstract: The conventional cooperative societies dated back to 1844 were built on interest-based operations, where interest is charged and paid on any financial advance to members and deposits made by members, respectively. Interest based transactions are not only forbidden by the two major religions in Nigeria, but are perceived to be negating the principle of mutual help and economic stability; which cooperatives are out to achieve. This paper examines the operations of interest free cooperative societies formed by salary-workers; with the aim of exploring the concept, objectives, activities, management and sources of funds to such societies. This study uses content analysis. From the review, this study found out that salary workers stand to enjoy a lot of benefits by forming Interest free co-operative societies. It is therefore concluded that Interest free savings and credit co-operative society is the most appropriate form of co-operative society through which workers used to improve on their savings.
