  • Determination of Technostress Resources and Technostress Levels of

    • Authors: Mehmet Oktay GÖKASLAN
      Abstract: This research was carried out to determine the technostress resources and technostress levels of academicians. The population of the research consists of 543 academicians working at Mardin Artuklu University in March-May 2022. The sample of the research consists of 285 academicians reached by the convenience sampling method. The data obtained through online questionnaires were tested using the SPSS 23 program. The tests performed are correlation, frequency analysis, ANOVA test and independent groups t test. It has been observed that work-home conflict, negative affectivity and strain dimensions are formed as technostress sources. Among the hypotheses developed about technostress resources and technostress levels, it has been determined that there is a positive significant relationship between technostress resources and technostress levels, strain, work-home conflict and negative affectivity, and technostress level, technological overload and technological complexity. In addition, no significant relationship was found between technological uncertainty, which is the sub-dimension of technostress, and other variables. As a result of the regression analysis, strain positively and significantly predicts the technological overload, and negative affectivity positively and significantly predicts the technological overload. According to the results of the analysis, it is seen that the work-home conflict, which is the sub-dimension of the source of technostress, does not explain the technological overload.

  • Stock Price Prediction Using Long-Short-Term Memory Network

    • Authors: Mahmut TOKMAK
      Abstract: One of the most important transactions of the financial system is stock trading. Stock price data is handle as a financial time series. Stock price predictions using time series analysis are the activity of determining the future value of stocks listed on the stock market. Predicting the price of the stock correctly reduces the risk factor in the decisions to be taken by the investors. Therefore, it is an important issue for the investor. However, because there are many variables that affect the stock price, it is a very complex process to predict. Machine learning methods, especially deep learning algorithms, are frequently used in prediction in the field of finance, as in many other fields. In this study, stock price prediction was made using Long-Short-Term Memory networks, which is one of the deep learning methods. Four stocks within the scope of Borsa İstanbul Technology Index were determined and a 2578-day data set was created between 2012 and 2022, and training and testing was carried out with the established model. As a result of the test process, consistent and realistic predictions were obtained.

  • The Causality Relationship Between Economic Confidence Index, Export
           Volume Index and Import Volume Index: The Case of Turkey

    • Authors: Ergün TEKİN; Feyyaz ZEREN
      Abstract: In this study, in addition to being an indicator in monitoring the current economic situation, the causality relationship between the economic confidence index, which allows to take precautions by early seeing the economic crisis and possible risks, and the export volume index and import volume index, which expresses the change in the export and import volumes when the prices are stable, have been investigated. During the analysis, the Fourier Granger causality test developed by Enders and Jones (2015), which also took into account the large number of smooth transition structural breaks in the data sets, was used. According to the results of the study, in which the monthly frequency data between January 2013 – July 2021 were discussed; A bidirectional causality relationship was found between the economic confidence index and both the export volume index and the import volume index. Empirical findings show that economic decision-makers should benefit from the changes in the economic confidence index in making import or export decisions. At the same time, these results reveal the role of changes in export volume index and import volume index values in terms of providing perspective to policy makers and creating political maneuvers in establishing economic confidence.

  • The Mediating Role of Stress in the Effect of Emotional Intelligence on
           Online Learning During the Pandemic Period

    • Authors: Filiz DEMİR; Murat AK, Serkan ADA
      Abstract: In this study, it is aimed to determine the mediating role of stress in the effect of emotional intelligence on online learning during the Covid-19 pandemic period. Data were collected from individuals belonging to the Z-Generation, who are actively involved in online learning at Karamanoğlu Mehmetbey University in Turkey, using the questionnaire technique. Three scales were included in the questionnaire form used in the research. These are the “Emotional Intelligence Scale” developed by Salowey and Mayer, the “Readiness Scale for Online Learning” developed by Hung et al., and the “Perceived Stress Level Scale” developed by Cohen et al. In order to examine the relationship between the variables, a questionnaire was distributed to four hundred thirty six individuals by the snowball sampling method. The collected data were analyzed with the structural equation model (PLS-SEM) Smart PLS 3 statistical program using the Partial Least Squares method. According to the results; emotional intelligence affects online learning positively, and perceived stress negatively. In addition, it has been found that while stress affects online learning negatively, it has a partial mediating role in the effect of emotional intelligence on online learning. Even though some of the variables of the study were studied together in different studies, the fact that these variables were considered together for the first time reveals the originality of the study. Examining the online learning process, which is nowadays more important and valuable than ever before, and the effects of emotional intelligence and stress on it, and providing guiding and enlightening findings to policy makers and practitioners in the following periods constitute another value of the study.
