  • Civil liability of companies for anonymous comments posted on their sites:
           a criterion of potential consequences of liability

    • Authors: Vaidas Jurkevičius, Jūratė Šidlauskienė
      Pages: 1 - 11
      Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this study is to investigate a criterion of potential consequences of liability of an Internet portal for unlawful comments of its visitors and set certain general waymarks, which would apply to cases of this kind. Research methodology – The European Court of Human Rights has ruled in four cases (Delfi AS v. Estonia, MTE & Index v. Hungary, Pihl v. Sweden and Tamiz v. the United Kingdom) on whether civil liability can be justified to the website operators for anonymous comments made on their portals that violate the right to privacy. One of the criteria of such evaluation was the possible negative consequences of the civil liability of these entities, but its content and meaning have not been thoroughly studied in the doctrine. Therefore the authors analyse the content of this criterion on the basis of a comparative method. Taking into account the legal context of this study, specific methods of legal interpretation are used in this article (such as, systemic, teleologic, histrorical). Findings –
      Authors conclude that addressing the civil liability of website operators for damages caused by anonymous comments violating the right to privacy must consider not only the financial, and not only ad hoc, short- and long-term adverse effects of the website operators in general, but the impact of the ruling on the concept of free media and other property and non-material consequences for a democratic society as a whole. Research limitations – This article deals with one criteria for the application of civil liability of website operators for the infringement of an individual’s right to privacy by anonymous comments, that is – the possible negative consequences of the civil liability of these entities. That is the continuation of the authors’ research on the topic of website operator’s liability for unlawful anonymous comments. Practical implications – The research reveals that the consequences of applying the civil liability to the website operator are conditions for assessment of extent of the already existing civil liability; therefore, the criteria of the consequences that arose and / or could arise to website operator are not to be considered as factors justifying the application of civil liability, but rather as factors determining, i.e. extending or limiting, the extent of civil liability. Originality/Value – The vacuum of a consistent concept of assessing the behavior of website operators in response to unlawful comments poses a threat not only to the sustainability of website operators as business or public interest entities, but also to the stability of the legal system as a whole. It is therefore important to disclose the content of elements of assessment of the necessity of restricting the freedom of expression of website operators in a democratic society, which are unregulated and formulated only in the case law of the ECtHR, and which have been applied in national courts for horizontal civil liability claims for anonymous comments. There are no previous research that would focus on these issues.

  • Interest rates sensitivity arbitrage – theory and practical assesment
           for financial market trading

    • Authors: Bohumil Stadnik
      Pages: 12 - 23
      Abstract: Purpose – Nowadays popular algorithmic trading uses many strategies which are algoritmizable and promise profitability. This research assess if it is possible successfully use interest rates sensitivity arbitrage in bond portfolio (also known as convexity arbitrage) in financial praxis. This arbitrage is sparsely described in literature and an assessment about its practical success is missing. Research methodology – Methodology steps: mathematical definition of given arbitrage; construction of sufficient portfolio; backtesting on USD zero-coupon curves. Portfolio of two bonds is constructed (theoretically and practically) to have the same Macaulay duration and price, but a different convexity at certain YTM point. Therefore, being long the first bond while shorting the second (of higher convexity) would result in a market-directional bet for parallel zero-coupon yield curve shifts. Findings – To construct practically the portfolio which is sufficient for the convexity arbitrage could be unrealistic on markets with low liquidity; the presumptions necessary to practically succeed are not fulfilled enough to ensure the arbitrage is profitable. Research limitations – The backtesting is limited to USD market, testing other markets is recommended, but different result is not expected. Practical implications – The research helps practitioners considering this strategy for its implementation to algorithmic trading. Originality/Value – New important results for financial practitioners; states that practical and profitable utilization of convexity arbitrage is unrealizable and save costs during implementation of the strategy.

  • On the failure and systemic risk of innovation cluster: copula approach

    • Authors: Laura Gudelytė
      Pages: 24 - 33
      Abstract: In order to assess and parameterize the risk of innovation activity implemented by innovation clusters, it is necessary to determine the reliable tools of measuring of systemic risk. Purpose – to propose an adequate approach to evaluate the systemic risk with regard to the impact of interlinkages between cluster entities and other external factors. Research methodology – general overview of research papers and documents presenting concepts and methodologies of evaluation of systemic risk and performance of networked structures as approach to evaluate the systemic risk with regard to the impact of interlinkages between cluster entities and other external factors, applied research. Findings – it is suggested to develop the further parameterization of intensity. Modelling of the tail dependence and asymmetric dependence between pairs of networked positions remains an important task. Research limitations – the lack of information concerning the structure and types of interactions and relationship between the members of innovation cluster. There are made some additional assumptions related to reduced-form approach of credit risk modelling. Practical implications – proposed conceptual model of evaluation of systemic risk should be useful for understanding and further treatment of measuring risk in a case of innovation management. Originality/Value – the concept of the measuring the systemic risk in innovation cluster as a joint probability of correlated failure of commercialization of innovative activity results is proposed and analysed in this paper.

  • Macroeconomic indicators and yield curve of Indonesian government bond

    • Authors: Perdana Wahyu Santosa
      Pages: 34 - 48
      Abstract: Purposes – Indonesian government bond (known as SUN) plays an essential role in financing sustainable development in Indonesia and is a fixed income investment vehicle that attracts foreign investors. This study aims to examine the effect of macroeconomic factors or macro-risk on the yield curve of the SUN bond. Methodology – The type of data used in this study is secondary data in the form of BI Rate, Inflation, Exchange Rate, Foreign Exchange Reserves, Current Account Deficit, and crude oil prices in the 2010–2019 period. This study used the error correction model (ECM) method. The primary sources of data are some government bodies such as the Bank Indonesia website (www.bi.go.id) and the Indonesian site Bond Market Directory (www.idx.co.id). Findings – The results showed that the exchange rate had a positive effect in the long run, while the foreign exchange reserves effect inversely on the yield curve. The BI rate, inflation rate, and oil price have a positive effect on yield significantly. Furthermore, the current account deficit has no significant impact on the yield curve for the long term and short term. Implications – There are some managerial and policy implications to maintain an efficient, fixed income market. The authorities need to promote GDP growth, pursue fiscal efficiency, keep up the credit rating and risk of current account deficit, keep a relatively low BI rate and expected inflation rate. The yield curve fluctuation is influenced by changes in some macro-monetary factors above, which should consider in making SUN investment decisions. Limitations – This study has two limitations. Firstly, the future model could use a re-specification analysis that employs the VECM method that can result in impulse response function with a shock and period study; secondly, this study could be adding some variables including budget policy and political dynamics. Originality – This study contributes to the literature by examining the yield curve using the current account deficit related to government debt and macroeconomic factors that affect the bond yield curve. These findings can arrange a strategy to develop the bond market and obtain funding with a low cost of debt funds.

  • The multiple mediation roles of trust and satisfaction in the effect of
           perceived corporate social responsibility on loyalty

    • Authors: Abdullah Uslu, Halil İbrahim Şengün
      Pages: 49 - 69
      Abstract: Purpose – This study aims at investigating the effect of corporate social responsibility perceptions of local people living in Diyarbakır on bank loyalty in terms of banking services and the mediator roles of trust and satisfaction in this effect. Research methodology – Cronbach’s Alpha coefficients, reliability, convergent and discriminant validity and multicollinearity were examined before testing the hypotheses of the research. The validity of the measurement model for the variables that are included in the model was examined by the confirmatory factor analysis. Partial least squares path modelling was used to analyze the research model and hypotheses, and multiple mediation analysis was used to test the mediation effects. The collected data were analyzed by the software SPSS 22.0 and SmartPLS 3.3.0. Findings – The research results exposed that the corporate social responsibility perceptions of bank customers have significant and positive effects on bank loyalty. Furthermore, satisfaction has had partial mediation effects on the relationship between CSR perception and loyalty. Research limitations – The population covers individuals with regular wage or salary who live in Diyarbakır. The survey was conducted between October 1 and December 1, 2019, with convenience sampling technique and 400 questionnaires were collected. Practical implications – When conducting CSR activities, businesses should emphasize that trust and satisfaction have an essential effect as well as loyalty. Originality/Value – This study investigated the simultaneous multiple mediator effects of trust and satisfaction in the relationship between CSR and loyalty.

  • Modelling volatility spillovers, cross-market correlation and co-movements
           between stock markets in European Union: an empirical case study

    • Authors: Jatin Trivedi, Cristi Spulbar, Ramona Birau, Amir Mehdiabadi
      Pages: 70 - 90
      Abstract: Purpose – This article examines volatility spillovers, cross-market correlation, and comovements between selected developed and former communist emerging stock markets in the European Union. Modelling the behavioural dynamics of European stock markets represents a vital topic in a fascinating context, but also a current challenge of great interest. Research Methodology – We propose to estimate and model volatility using GARCH family models for selected European markets. We aim to explore volatility movement, presence of leverage effect/ asymmetry in selected financial markets. Findings – The econometric approach includes GARCH (1, 1) models for the sample period from 1, January 2000 to 12, July 2018. The empirical results revealed that exists a significant presence of volatility clustering in all selected financial markets except Poland and Croatia. The empirical analysis also indicates that both recent and past news generate a considerable impact on present volatility. Research limitations – Our empirical study has certain limitations regarding the relatively small number of only eight stock markets. Practical implications – It can provide a useful perspective for researchers, academics, investors, investment managers, decision-makers, and scientists. Originality/Value – The empirical analysis is focused on 8 European stock markets, which are classified as developed (Spain, UK, Germany, and France) and emerging (Poland, Hungary, Croatia, and Romania).

  • Factors affecting Syrian female researchers’ experience during
           crisis: inductive approach

    • Authors: Serene Dalati
      Pages: 91 - 110
      Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this research is to explore factors influencing Syrian female academic researchers’ experience in academic research in the field of business and economics studies. Research Methodology – The research methodology follows a qualitative approach. The methodology is based on conducting focus groups with female academic researchers selected from Syrian public and private universities, to clarify any potential factors, which may be influencing women researchers’ experience. Subsequently, a semi-structured interview protocol is designed to be applied to this target group. A judgement-sampling technique is selected at Syrian public and private universities. Findings – The research findings indicate that personality traits, passion for research, marital and maternal status are important micro-level factors are influencing female researchers’ experience. Academic work overload, an organisational culture of the institution, need for networking support with the business sector, are identified as meso factors. Finally, social culture and norms of the Middle Eastern societies, stereotyping and interpretation of religion are crucial factors at a macrolevel. The research develops a theoretical framework of dimensions, which may be influencing female academic researchers in the field of business and economics. Research Limitation/Implications – The research limitation is associated with sampling size and geographical scope. Future studies could investigate a larger sample with representative geographical scopes, and employs theory testing approaches. Future research could also extend its investigation to examine further disciplines including science, mathematics, engineering and technology. Practical Implications – The study provides practical advice to decision and policymakers examining employment and hiring structure and suggests evaluating policies associated with support with childcare providing on-campus childcare. The study advises introducing support mechanisms for improving the reward system and compensations schemes for academic researchers, encouraging the development and production of scientific research. Originality/Value – There is no prior research on women researchers in Syria. This research is considered as a new perspective of women researchers in Syria during a sensitive time, which characterises Syria. The study provides a theoretical contribution associated with experiences of female researchers at faculties of business and economics in Syrian higher education.

    • Authors: Pavel Pudil, Petr Somol, Irena Mikova, Vladimir Pribyl, Lenka Komarkova
      Pages: 111 - 130
      Abstract: Purpose – The paper presents the results of the study based on a sample of 358 organisations that focuses on further education and training (FET) of their employees. It specifically investigates which specific educational methods and various characteristics of organisations are associated with their financial performance. Research methodology – The Dependency Aware Feature (DAF) selection method from statistical pattern recognition has been used to identify which of the 37 considered variables are most associated with the profitability indicators (ROA, ROCE, ROS). Findings – The profitability indices are significantly associated with some of the specific methods of FET. Organisations should pay attention particularly to instructing, coaching and mentoring. The results also confirm the importance of talent management for organisations to be successful. Research limitations – The examined sample consists solely of organisations operating in the Czech Republic. Shortly, we plan to extend the selection by including organisations from abroad. Practical implications – The study provides recommendations for HR managers for the goals they should focus on. Organisations should evaluate the impacts of FET; otherwise increasing investments in it may not have an effect. Originality/Value – The originality of the current study lies in using a new methodology based on machine learning and respecting complex mutual relations among variables.

  • Modelling the stakeholder environment and decision process in the U.S.
           higher education system

    • Authors: Ann Saurbier
      Pages: 131 - 149
      Abstract: Purpose – As higher education continues to be buffeted by challenges, college and university leaders must find a way to respond to these environmental forces. In the United States, accreditation plays an increasing role in the quality control and improvement process. The goal of this research is to gain a deeper understanding of this decision environment, and the stakeholders within that system, such that American higher education institutions may set and achieve goals more effectively. Research methodology – Grounded theory is utilized to create a conceptual framework depicting the American higher education stakeholder system. In addition to placing the actors within the system, this research is also designed to generate a stakeholder-focused institutional decision process model. Findings – When viewed in a systemic context, the accreditation process assumes a unique placement among the other critical stakeholders. With this understanding, higher education leaders may better understand, balance, and integrate the concerns of their various stakeholders, in a stakeholder-focused decision process. Research limitations – While integrating multiple theories, to depict the American higher education stakeholder system and a stakeholder-focused decision process, this research does not operationalize or undertake the empirical testing of these theoretical models. Practical implications – The influence of the dynamic external environment and the accreditation process combine to create extremely challenging decision-making conditions for higher education leaders. The ability to improve and balance the quality and ethical nature of decisions that impact their various stakeholders may assist these leaders in more accurately meeting both their institutional goals and the public good goals of higher education. Originality/Value – This study specifically seeks to integrate multiple theoretical constructs within the American higher education environment and accreditation process. The creation of a theoretical model that depicts not only the stakeholder environment but also a stakeholder-focused decision process may assist all higher education institutions.

  • Empowering women at the higher institutional level: analysis of business
           education and leadership training program

    • Authors: Summra Khalid, Wang Dan, Amir Sohail, Wahid Raza, Bushra Khalid, Ahmad Ur-Rehman
      Pages: 150 - 169
      Abstract: Purpose – The research study aims to assess the women’s Business education and leadership training program at a higher institutional level in order to examine how the program impacts and contributes to women’s empowerment. Further, this research sought to explore women’s leadership training aspect that has not explicitly elucidated. Besides, this study looks upon women’s self-perception by empowering them with skills and leadership capabilities to change hard-core gender stereotypes in society. Research methodology – The sample size comprised of 82 enrolled female students in the training program. The qualitative statistics (i.e., three focus groups) evaluated with the Kirkpatrick model. The Wilcoxon signed-rank test was applied to compare pre-and post-training quantitative data (i.e., questionnaire). Effect size is measured to check the effectiveness of the training program. Findings – The post-training evaluation revealed higher scores in knowledge, tools, and leadership skills. The training program encouraged women to bring change in self-perception and gain confidence for transformative changes in society. Findings support the effectiveness of leadership education and training programs. Research limitations – This research conducted in a Pakistani patriarchal cultural context and one region of Pakistan (Punjab). Hence the results are carefully generalised. The long term outcomes of this leadership training program and women’s performance in the job market are not studied. Practical implications – Findings suggest that a training program positively affects women’s learning, knowledge, and behaviour. Training programs empower women with practical tools for self and business development. The program encouraged women to gain better insight into work-life challenges and enhance personal competencies to gain equal rights. Originality/Value – This research will significantly contribute to the relatively scarce literature on the effectiveness of women’s business education and leadership training programs at a higher institutional level in the Pakistani context for women empowerment.

  • Analysis of students performance in relation to the results of state
           unified exam: the case of Russian university

    • Authors: Anna Svirina, Aleksey Lopatin, Jelena Titko
      Pages: 170 - 179
      Abstract: Purpose – Considering the limited number of studies covering the topic, the goal is to check the existence of the correlation between the results of Russia’s Unified State Exam and performance at the university. Research methodology – the article uses quantitate analysis (regression) of the student performance on a sample of 4664 students. To provide statistical evaluation, the authors use SPSS Statistics software. Findings – the research suggests, that results of unified state exam and individual students scores, awarded by the university under restrictions, are non-efficient in terms of predicting student performance. On the opposite, students’ performance during their first semester is a good predictor for the whole period of academic studies. As existing results of testing such hypotheses are inconsistent, the research provides value to the field of educational research. Research limitations – data for research refer to only Kazan National Research Technical University named after A. N. Tupolev (KNRTU-KAI). Practical implications – the research clearly indicate, that the universities cannot rely solely on the unified state exam during admission; they are to use different assessment tools to ensure future academic performance and lower dropouts rate. Originality/Value – There is a gap in the investigation the link between secondary education and higher education performance.

  • Building information modelling: procurement procedure

    • Authors: Vladimir Popov, Milena Medineckienė, Tatjana Grigorjeva, Arūnas Remigijus Zabulėnas
      Pages: 180 - 197
      Abstract: Traditional construction planning is being replaced by the building information modelling (BIM) approach, which seeks to digitalise all the construction procedures, including procurement. Successful implementation of BIM on the market requires the preparation of appropriate procurement documents. Purpose – to suggest the most suitable set of documents for public procurement in the context of BIM by analysing the documents that are necessary for implementing the stages of the building life cycle. Research methodology – in order to achieve the aim of the research, the in-depth analysis of different countries’ procurement methodological documents and analysis of the scientific articles have been implemented. The methodology also includes expert interviewing, which was done in order to analyse the investigated standards. Findings – After analysing the procurement procedures of Norway, Spain, France, Poland, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Finland, a set of documents, including Employer’s Information Requirements (EIR), BIM Execution Plan (BEP) and BIM protocol, was considered as the most suitable for BIM-based procurement processes. In addition, the basic principles of ISO 19650-2:2018 do not reflect the specific conditions of each country, so it is appropriate to examine the possibility of providing guidance in individual national annexes that reflects the peculiarities of national procurement. Research limitations – some research limitations were related to the challenges to access the literature, particularly the regulatory documentation associated with the public procurement procedure in a singular Country. Also, the difficulties with and accessing the document in the English language. However, in most of these cases, the document overview was analysed or translated from the native language. Originality/Value – existing related studies are mainly oriented on a particular region/country, and no general overview of European countries regarding BIM procurement procedures has been implemented. Additionally, a significant scientific contribution of this research is the review of the fundamental standards, which includes the general specification for information management in construction projects using BIM. Implemented analysis can serve as a basis for other authors to implement their research concerning their region, to suggest the most appropriate and suitable set of documents. Practical implications – this study contributes to the preparation of the Lithuanian market for the implementation of BIM and could help policy-makers to prepare the most appropriate procurement documents.
