  • Therapeutic Notepad: A Path to Happiness and Well-Being

    • Authors: Paula Isabel Gonçalves Dos Santos, Jorge Rodrigues Saraiva, Edgar Martins Mesquita, Marta Silva Coelho
      Pages: 1 - 1
      Abstract: Human beings are curious, intrinsically motivated and often look for sensations based on goals and plans to overcome the difficulties and challenges that arise towards happiness, wellbeing, and personal growth. The present study aims to understand the usefulness and practicality of a therapeutic notepad, which is composed of inspiring quotes and tasks underlying happiness and well-being. 111 young people and adults, aged between 18 and 58 years (M= 21.81; SD= 5.34) participated in this study, being 47.3% male individuals and 52.7% female individuals. First, a sociodemographic questionnaire was applied to collect personal data; then was administered the Psychological Well-Being Manifestations Scale (Échelle de Mesure des Manifestations du Bien-Être Psychologique) which translates into a response instrument five-point likert type with five subscales including happiness. Finally, a semistructured interview was applied to understand the functionality of the therapeutic agenda. The results showed, both qualitatively and quantitatively, that the notepad can be assumed as an agent that promotes happiness and well-being as well as reducing the negative mood of individuals. This study focuses on the importance of well-being and happiness in the daily lives of individuals. This is an important contribution, as it allows to gauge that the notepad leads to positive and motivating results when applied.   Received: 11 December 2021 / Accepted: 21 February 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Communication Experience and Self-Concept of Metrosexual Men in Indonesia

    • Authors: Andy Corry Wardhani, Yasser Wahyuddin, Rafista Deviyanti, Ryzal Perdana, RT Dwi Septya Trisnawati
      Pages: 10 - 10
      Abstract: The passage of time and technological advancements can have an effect on human desires and lifestyles, and the emergence of the metrosexual man phenomenon is one of them. What makes metrosexual men interesting to study is the relationship between their self-concept and their interactions in their social environment. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to elucidate metrosexual men's communication experience and self-concept from a phenomenological perspective in terms of physical, psychological, social, and moral dimensions in the city of Bandar Lampung, Indonesia, Asia. The study is qualitative in nature and employed a phenomenological approach, with four metrosexual men being purposefully chosen as research subjects. The data were collected through unstructured interviews, observations, and literature review. The findings indicate that while the subjects under investigation have a pleasant communication experience with their family members, relatives, and friends, they do not have a positive experience communicating with the community. They have a positive self-concept, owing to their openness and confidence of all informants.   Received: 24 January 2022 / Accepted: 25 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

           Computer Thinking, Logical-Mathematical Skills, and Scientific Skills

    • Authors: Daniel F. Hillon-Salgado, Wilmer A. Gómez Fierro, Johan J. Molina-Mosquera
      Pages: 20 - 20
      Abstract: Programming in school spaces has been essential because the main objectives are the training and development of skills of those who use it. This way, it contributes to the student’s activity from the professional field and in practical life. Therefore, in this article, a documentary review is carried out to inquire about the implementation of programming in school to contribute to the development of computational thinking, logical-mathematical, and scientific skills. The examination revealed essential research findings that consider programming an indispensable tool for the axes proposed in this work.   Received: 21 January 2022 / Accepted: 2 April 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Service Quality and Customer Satisfaction in Dining Restaurants: Inputs
           for Tourism and Hospitality Curriculum Enhancement

    • Authors: Rhea L. Adriatico, Allen Mark A. Razalan, Chrizel Mae V. Pagbilao, Bonimar T. Afalla, Leila M. Dela Cruz
      Pages: 30 - 30
      Abstract: In the foodservice industry, clients do not only judge the product standard, but also the service quality they receive during their restaurant experience. Therefore, when the importance of the dining experience is strongly regarded by consumers in terms of intellectual and motivational attributes, they are happier to suggest the establishment to others. This research was undertaken to evaluate the levels of service quality and clients’ satisfaction on the services offered by two leading fast-casual dining restaurants in the Province of Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines. As a correlation research, this study was conducted using a modified SERVQUAL instrument among the 395 randomly selected customers. Weighted mean was used to describe the levels of service quality and customer satisfaction. The multiple regression was used to determine the predictors of customer satisfaction. The fast-casual dining restaurants had lived up to the expectation of their customers as they were thought to provide respectable service quality. The fast-casual dining restaurants had satisfied their customers in terms of their dining experience. The physical design and appearance of the restaurants, the price of the product, and the responsiveness of the workforce are the strong determinants of the gratification of the customers.   Received: 21 January 2022 / Accepted: 25 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Behaviours and Characteristics of Digital Natives Throughout the
           Teaching-Learning Process: A Systematic Review of Scientific Literature
           from 2016 to 2021

    • Authors: Olga Vitvitskaya, Josefina Amanda Suyo-Vega, Monica Elisa Meneses-La-Riva, Víctor Hugo Fernández-Bedoya
      Pages: 38 - 38
      Abstract: Information and communication technologies have generated transformations in the behaviour of digital native university students, which affect the teaching-learning process in the scenario of the Covid-19 pandemic. The objective of this study was to systematize the scientific evidence on university teaching strategies related to the behaviour of digital natives and the characteristics of their learning. The method employed was a systematic review of scientific articles from the EbscoHost, Scopus, Proquest, Eric and Scielo databases through the Boolean operators AND and OR. Initially, 51 638 records were obtained, of which only 26 met the inclusion criteria (years of publication, language, subject matter, free availability). The results show in the articles that most digital natives actively use social networks on a daily basis, while others conduct research or produce digital content with varying degrees of difficulty, some adapt quickly to new innovations related to technology, and many easily multitask and perform self-regulated learning, while demanding a more flexible teaching where learning is fast and practical. However, the attention of digital natives is dissipated by other interests such as social networks (generating cyber laziness), a situation that can lead to antisocial behaviour and self-exclusion from physical reality (phubbing). In conclusion, digital natives require greater attention from their university teachers, who must innovate in the teaching-learning process using the virtual environment, raising the interest of digital natives, to generate an autonomous learning where they can strengthen their skills and competencies for the achievement of their professional development.   Received: 11 December 2021 / Accepted: 23 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Position of Higher Education System Graduates in the Labor Market: Search
           For New Opportunities

    • Authors: Makhpal Barkhiyayevna Syzdykova, Talant Duisenuly Bimakhanov, Valentina Vladimirovna Fursova, Maria Alievna Makhambetova, Zharkynbek Oralbekovich Abikenov
      Pages: 50 - 50
      Abstract: The ongoing socio-economic and socio-cultural changes bring about significant alterations in the social structure of society and the institution of education. This calls for in-depth research to predict the further development of social processes and determine effective methods of managing them at the society and regional levels. The employment of university graduates has essentially acquired the characteristics of a new social process after the abolition of obligatory employment by distribution. The emergence of new statuses (for example, mixed statuses), in which university graduates often find themselves being unemployed or working outside their professions, has become an acknowledged social fact. The interest of many sociologists in this problem is also due to changes in the functions of social institutions, including the institution of education, an important part of which is higher education. The study focuses on the importance of such obstacles as contradictions between the qualification programs, teaching methods, graduates’ competencies, employers’ requirements for the same competencies and qualifications, the mismatch between the studied theory and practice, and the identification and justification of the main employment strategies for university graduates. The study objectives are pursued through descriptive data analysis and the qualitative approach with a questionnaire as the main data collection method. The study is conducted on a sample of 130 organization leaders. The aforementioned problems and shortcomings of Kazakh university graduates’ training are detected and analyzed using comparative analysis. In accordance with the specifics of the labor market, the authors identify the market, paternalistic, and traditional strategies of university graduates’ employment.   Received: 21 December 2021 / Accepted: 16 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Reclaiming an Authority: Women’s Ulama Congress Network (KUPI) and a New
           Trend of Religious Discourse in Indonesia

    • Authors: Inayah Rohmaniyah, Samia Kotele, Rr. Siti Kurnia Widiastuti
      Pages: 60 - 60
      Abstract: The struggle of the Indonesian Women Ulama Congress Network (KUPI) to reclaim the authority of female ulama in Indonesia has facilitated the emergence of a new trend in a religious domain that has traditionally been male-dominated and marginalized women. This paper aims to explore three methods of struggle adopted by the KUPI network to reclaim women's religious authority and socio-political recognition of being an ulama. These include reconstructing the concept of ulama, developing an alternative non-patriarchal and gender-inclusive epistemology, and issuing fatwas on strategic issues. Data for this study has resulted from observations, interviews with ten (10) leading activists and members of the KUPI network, and readings on the publications of the KUPI and its network. This study reveals that KUPI reinterprets the concept of ulama by giving new gender-inclusive meanings in terms of definition, agency, and roles. The KUPI network also criticizes the existing epistemology that has enabled masculine domination and patriarchal bias in producing religious knowledge. The network develops a new epistemology in interpreting religious texts contextually. It brings up the true-justice perspective and hermeneutics of reciprocity. KUPI issued fatwas related to three major issues, including sexual violence, child marriage, and ecological crisis. The fatwa also functions to establish KUPI's position of legitimacy on a par with the Indonesian Ulama Council (MUI) and symbolizes public recognition of Muslim women's clerical authority. The study recommends the need for a more massive-quantitative study to map social acceptance and recognition of women ulama's authority on a national and international level.   Received: 12 January 2022 / Accepted: 19 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Indian MSMEs amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic: Firm Characteristics and Access
           to Finance

    • Authors: Mohammed Ahmar Uddin, Syed Ahsan Jamil, Khaliquzzaman Khan
      Pages: 71 - 71
      Abstract: The importance of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in economic development and their access to finance post-COVID-19 has been highlighted in this study. The availability of finance is a critical factor for MSMEs to flourish, and they are mostly severely affected by the economic recession. The purpose of this study was to ascertain how the firm-specific factors such as Location, Industry, Size, Age, Ownership, Collaterals, and Business information affect their access to finance in India. This study used a survey to collect primary data from 200 MSMEs in India. Descriptive and logistic regression analysis was used to analyze the data. Results show that firms with collateral, larger and older firms, and private limited firms are less likely to face problems in raising finance, while service firms are more likely to face problems in raising finance. The results from this study will add to the understanding of the financing problems faced by MSMEs in India. The study recommends that firm attributes are important for accessing finance and help policymakers and researchers develop new strategies and policies to support the financing of MSMEs in India.   Received: 23 September 2021 / Accepted: 7 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Current Trends in the Development of Work Ethics and Management in
           Kazakhstan

    • Authors: Yerkin Aubakirov, Gulnar Adayeva, Hakan Gülerce, Ulbolsyn Zholbaryssova, Arailym Abdibek
      Pages: 82 - 82
      Abstract: The values ​​and wealth of world civilization are created by human labor. Labor is both an economic category and a moral value. Kazakhstan being among the top 30 developed countries and in consideration of the quest to find a solution to the problems of building an industrial and innovative economy, is among those nations that require the intensification of all types of human labor activity. The purpose, the main directions of research, and the results obtained allow us to interpret in a new way the processes of changes occurring in the value-motivational structures of the culture of work and management in modern Kazakhstan. Theoretical generalizations of the empirical data obtained in the regions of Kazakhstan can serve as the basis for scientific and methodological support for reforms and transformations of the industrial and innovative development of the country as a whole. One of the socially significant types of human activity is managerial work. The problem of management is traditionally one of the topical aspects of many social theories. Training of management personnel, education of “managers of a new formation” has been on the agenda since the day the country gained independence. Kazakhstan is implementing systemic administrative reforms. However, the low efficiency of these transformations is due to the frequent implementation of foreign management styles in an entirely different socio-cultural environment. The research project "Ethics of labor and management in the context of social modernization of Kazakhstan" aimed to study the regional, ethnic-confessional, and gender characteristics of the formation of a new culture of work and management in modern Kazakhstan.   Received: 14 December 2021 / Accepted: 16 February 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • The Principle of "Non-Refoulement" and its Evolution in the Jurisprudence
           of the European Court of Human Rights

    • Authors: Emanuela Furramani, Rrezart Bushati
      Pages: 107 - 107
      Abstract: The principle of non-refoulement provided for by Article 33 of the Geneva Convention constitutes a principle of international law with a significant role in the protection of human rights. This principle has been confirmed by the European Court of Human Rights, which has affirmed the state's responsibility for returning an asylum-seeker to a country where he risks being subjected to inhuman and degrading treatment or torture, in breach of Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Considering this reasoning, in the case of Hirsi Jamaa and others v. Italy, the European Court of Human Rights found the Italian State responsible for violating Article 4 of Protocol No. 4 for the collective refoulement of migrants without a procedure for assessing their individual situation in a state where they could face inhuman and degrading treatment, as well as for violating Article 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights, as the applicants had been denied the opportunity to appeal before the expulsion measure was carried out. Recently, the European Court of Human Rights' orientation has changed since, in the case of N.D. and N.T. v. Spain, the Court excluded the violation of both Article 4 of the 4th Protocol and Article 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights, stating that the collective rejections were due to the “applicants' own conduct”. This decision entails many perplexities regarding the protection of human rights.   Received: 24 January 2022 / Accepted: 19 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Information Technology Governance in the Tunisian Banking Industry: An
           Exploratory Study

    • Authors: Saida Harguem, Karim Ben Boubaker, Houcine Echatti
      Pages: 121 - 121
      Abstract: Information Technology (IT) has become the foundation for supporting and sustaining businesses. IT strategic importance has prompted many organizations to extend Governance to IT and place it high on their agendas. Banks are among those organizations that heavily use IT to enhance their service delivery capabilities. Besides, globalization, competition, and compliance requirements pushed banks to consider IT Governance as part of their overall corporate governance strategy. Past studies have shown that IT Governance in the financial industry is more mature than in other sectors. However, there is little information about IT Governance in economically developing nations. This article conducted a Delphi study to evaluate the Perceived Efficiency and Ease of Implementation of IT Governance practices in the Tunisian banking industry. The results show that compared with Process and Relational Mechanisms, Structural Practices are perceived to be more effective and easier to implement. This research helps to understand better the current state of IT Governance Implementation in less developed countries.   Received: 30 November 2021 / Accepted: 19 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Towards Sustainable Careers for Saudi Employees in Tourism and Hospitality
           Sector: The Impact of Career Competencies on Turnover Intention

    • Authors: Mohamed Ahmed Ali, Ghadah Alarifi, Enas Fares Yehia
      Pages: 134 - 134
      Abstract: The aim of this research is to provide a model for a healthy work environment for Saudi employees in the tourism and hospitality sector to decrease their turnover. The current research examines the causal relationships of career competencies (reflective, communicative, and behavioral), job involvement (JI), and organizational commitment (OC), with turnover intention (TI) of Saudi employees in the tourism and hospitality sector. This study utilizes structural equation modeling (SEM) and analyzes data collected from a sample of 436 Saudi employees in the tourism and hospitality sector, positive associations were found between career competencies (reflective and behavioral) and job involvement. Positive associations were found between career competencies (reflective and communicative) and organizational commitment. Furthermore, positive associations were found between job involvement and organizational commitment. On the other hand, the research revealed the negative associations between career competencies (communicative and behavioral), job involvement, and organizational commitment with employees’ turnover intention. The organizational commitment had partial mediating effects on the relationship between career competencies and turnover intention. The implications of these findings for the industry and future research are deliberated as well.   Received: 19 January 2022 / Accepted: 20 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Socio-Emotional Leadership Style as Implementation of Situational
           Leadership Communication in the Face of Radical Change

    • Authors: Ahmad Mulyana, Melly Ridaryanthi, Siti Faridah, Farid H. Umarella, Endri Endri
      Pages: 150 - 150
      Abstract: Leadership communication style plays an important role in managing an organization during the Covid-19 pandemic. The study investigated the leadership style applied in the event organizer industry to survive adversity during a pandemic situation. A qualitative approach is used in case studies of two event organizers in two big cities in Indonesia, namely PT Ikons Karya Kreasi, Jakarta, and CV Trigger EO, ​​Medan. In-depth interviews were conducted as a data collection technique for each level of the company's top management and employees. The results showed that the situational leadership style applied in the two organizations differed according to the context and culture of the organization. The most important competence of the two lies in a leadership style that displays socio-emotional skills, is ready to face stress and adapt to changes in socio-cultural life quickly, and dares to take decisions to maintain the continuity of the company organizing business events.   Received: 21 December 2021 / Accepted: 4 April 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

      Abstract: Many researchers do their research on geoparks, slogan, and textual meaning of each but it is still limited research on textual meaning that relates to geopark slogans. This research tries to figure out the textual meaning of the UNESCO Global Geoparks slogans. The slogans are obtained from the UNESCO official website at www.unesco.org. The research method applied is a descriptive qualitative method. The data collected are eighty-five slogans: they were identified and classified into clauses (sixty-three data) and clause complexes (twenty-two data). It was reported that the simple topical theme is the dominant in the eighty-five slogans found. It was notified that the multiple themes found in the slogans have two elements: they are the combination of topical - textual theme and topical – interpersonal theme. It was concluded, for the readers, the simple theme is the dominant one since the simple ones are easier to understand and to memorize than the multiple ones. As concluded from the data analysis, the slogan writers tend to select simple themes as the best way to communicate the underlying message of their products to the readers or listeners. In addition, clauses are also preferred than clause complexes in formulating their slogans.   Received: 2 November 2021 / Accepted: 21 February 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Translation Techniques Used in Assassin Creed: Renaissance Novel

    • Authors: Arbain, Mangatur Rudolf Nababan, Riyadi Santosa, Tri Wiratno
      Pages: 179 - 179
      Abstract: Several studies have been done on the technique of translating novel speech acts. However, impositive speech act translation research is still limited. Speakers perform impositive speech acts to burden their speech partners. Thus, the translator must comprehend the context. This study aimed to determine the translator's translation technique for adjusting target language meaning to the context. The data used in this study was gathered from the original English novel and compared to the same story in Indonesian. The researcher used the Forum Group Discussion with three translation professionals (FGD) to validate the data. The study found that most translators employ the conventional equivalency method. The translator determines the most suitable and acceptable meaning for the target language.   Received: 7 January 2022 / Accepted: 8 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Tri Pramana Values in Educational Pedagogy

    • Authors: Wayan Paramartha, Ni Luh Sustiawati, Ni Made Sukrawati, Gusti Ayu Dessy Sugiharni
      Pages: 199 - 199
      Abstract: This paper aimed to discuss systematically the study of Tri Pramana values in learning. This paper was divided into three parts, namely: 1) Tri Pramana's position in education; 2) Actualization of Tri Pramana Values in Learning, and 3) This paper was closed by presenting a conclusion which was the answer to the problems raised from this paper. The writing method used literature study and comparative analysis. The results of the analysis showed that the position of the Tri Pramana learning concept is similar to the new version of Bloom's taxonomy. So that Tri Pramana can be interpreted as an approach to learning that consists of three parts (Sabda Pramana, Pratyaksha Pramana, and Anumana Pramana). The learning indicators found in Sabda Pramana (Agama Pramana) were "references and affirmations"; in Pratyaksha Pramana were “observation, asking questions, gathering information, processing information, and communicating”; and in Anumana Pramana were "summarizing, responding, linking, formulating, colligate". The Tri Pramana concept can be used as an improved alternative to the scientific approach applied to the current learning curriculum in Indonesia.   Received: 2 February 2022 / Accepted: 8 April 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

      Abstract: Community Health Care Workers (CHWs) play a crucial role in the pandemic response, especially in developing countries like the Philippines. However, there is a lacuna of interdisciplinary studies exploring their first-hand experiences. This study framed in Giddens' structuration aimed to describe the lived experiences of CHWs along with the role of structure and agency to the challenges, motivations, and coping strategies of CHWs in crafting grassroots policies for the enhancement of healthcare delivery in Cagayan, Northern Philippines. Employing the phenomenological method, forty-six (46) study participants were purposively selected. Their narratives were elicited through Focus Group Discussion (FGD) using a semi-structured interview guide, and their responses were transcribed verbatim. Results revealed that the CHWs experienced many challenges: unpreparedness, a new concept of space, personal and social consequences of COVID-19, particularly fear and discrimination, and limited human and material resources. However, they remain motivated to serve their community. Thus, CHWs are potent actors in the COVID-19 response of Cagayan, Northern Philippines.   Received: 8 December 2021 / Accepted: 02 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • The Effect of Environmental Performance on Firm Value with Mediating Role
           of Financial Performance in Manufacturing Companies in Indonesia

    • Authors: Teddy Hikmat Fauzi
      Pages: 256 - 256
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the determinants of firm value by formulating the relationship between environmental performance and the intervening variable of financial performance. This study analyzes how public companies in Indonesia comply with environmental responsibility and use it as a basis for increasing corporate value. Using the sampling of purposive sampling method, the research was conducted by examining 64 basic industries and mining companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange during 2016-2018. Empirical testing is done by path analysis. The results of the study suggest that firms are more likely to be able to increase the utility of environmental performance by mediating effects of financial performance. This means that the environmental performance effect is more likely in firms that have superior financial performance. Practically speaking, the results have implications that the implementation of environmental responsibility supported by adequate financial resources can significantly affect the perception of sustainability by company stakeholders and ultimately increase firm value.   Received: 20 September 2021 / Accepted: 8 April 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • The Effect of Accounting Fraud on the Reliability of the Published Profit
           After the Completion of Correction: The Period After the Submission of the
           Correction Report

    • Authors: Syed Raziuddin Ahmad, Ebrahim Mohammed Al-Matari, Ijaz Ali, Asif Baig, Rohit Garg, Imran Ahmad Khan
      Pages: 266 - 266
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of accounting fraud on the reliability of profits after the completion of corrections by focusing on the period after the submission of correction reports of companies that corrected their securities reports after accounting fraud was discovered. We tested the effect of accounting fraud on the reliability of profits after the completion of corrections by examining whether the profits of corrected companies and similar companies without fraud are reflected in stock prices in the same way. The results show that if a company is profitable in both years immediately before and after the completion of the correction, the profit is used for stock price evaluation, but the loss is not evaluated positively, as in the case of similar companies without accounting fraud in the past. The results indicate that the correction report restores the credibility of profits, but if the management's subsequent profit management is questionable, even losses that can be expected to improve the ability to earn cash flow in the future, such as restructuring, will not be evaluated.   Received: 6 December 2021 / Accepted: 23 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • The Causal Relationship Between Export, Import and Harmonized Consumer
           Price Index: Evidence from Kosovo

    • Authors: Halil Kukaj, Artan Nimani
      Pages: 279 - 279
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to analyze the causal relationship between export, import, and inflation for Kosovo which is a developing country. Pointedly, we examine empirically this relationship by deliberating that export and import influence the harmonized consumer price index, which is expressed as the inflation rate. This paper employs time series monthly data for the period 2010-Jan to 2020-Dec extracted from Kosovo’s Agency of Statistics. Since these variables were stationary at different levels, we have integrated the Toda-Yamamoto approach to Granger causality. The proposed model was free of autocorrelation and no root lied outside the unit circle indicating that the model is stable. The results of Granger causality revealed that export causes import and import causes export, export does not cause inflation, and inflation does not cause export. However, import caused inflation, and inflation caused import. Henceforth, we have performed the Impulse Response Function to analyze the interaction between variables in a vector autoregressive model and we have performed variance decomposition to check the variability in the dependent variable lagged by its variance. The study is spectacled that import is the main vehicle of economic development of Kosovo and for this reason, import causes inflation rate. The results of this study imply that the Kosovar government should take measures to control the effect of imports on increasing of consumer prices.   Received: 28 September 2021 / Accepted: 16 February 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • The Nexus between Top Management Support on Change Management, Cloud ERP
           Implementation, and Performance of SMEs

    • Authors: Olakunle Jayeola, Shafie Sidek, Shouvik Sanyal, Md. Meraj Hasan, Amarendra Pratap Singh, Syed Inamul Hasan
      Pages: 293 - 293
      Abstract: Top management support (TMS) is a critical success factor in cloud computing (CC) implementation and firm performance. However, extant empirical research on these relationships has obtained mixed findings due to earlier studies focusing on a one-dimensional TMS construct with diverse measurement items that muddle up different behaviours of top management. TMS is typically a multi-dimensional construct, such as TMS change management (TMSCM), TMS resource provision (TMSR), and TMS vision sharing (TMSV). The aim of this study is to examine a specific TMS dimension, TMSCM, on cloud ERP implementation and, further, to measure the effect of TMSCM on the financial performance of manufacturing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through the mediating effect of cloud ERP implementation. The proposed research model was validated using partial least squares structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) with a sample of 204 Malaysian manufacturing SMEs. Results reveal that TMSCM significantly impacts cloud ERP implementation and financial performance. Moreover, cloud ERP implementation is a significant driver of financial performance, and it partially mediates the relationship between TMSCM and financial performance. Contributing to disentangling the mixed findings of TMS impact on cloud ERP implementation and firm performance, this study also generates insights for practitioners that they need to balance TMSCM and cloud ERP implementation to improve the financial performance of SMEs.   Received: 17 December 2021 / Accepted: 21 February 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

      Pages: 310 - 310
      Abstract: The study aims to verify the validity and reliability of the entrepreneurial mindset scale in the Indonesian context (i.e., the adapted EM scale). The respondents were 302 undergraduate students who have already enrolled in the entrepreneurship course. In order to achieve the aim of study, a scale development procedure was conducted, including item generation, exploratory factor analysis, and confirmatory factor analysis. Item generation was successful in generating the preliminary items of the entrepreneurial mindset scale, whereas exploratory factor analysis was also successful in purifying those preliminary items. Furthermore, confirmatory factor analysis was successful in verifying the convergent validity and the composite reliability of the adapted EM scale. The adapted EM scale was a parsimonious measurement model, and therefore it could be useful for measuring the entrepreneurial mindset of undergraduate students in Indonesia. Future studies are recommended to refine the adapted EM scale: (1) by verifying it among students from other universities, (2) by using two different samples, in which one sample is for exploratory factor analysis and the other one is for confirmatory factor analysis, and (3) by testing the measurement invariance across groups (e.g., gender, age, and origin of university).   Received: 7 October 2021 / Accepted: 3 March 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

      Abstract: The structure is a critical part of organisation design which enhance or mar employee performance in an organisation. This study investigates the effect of organisational structure on employees' performance in selected commercial banks in Nigeria. The study adopted a positivistic research paradigm. One hundred ninety-two employees from three commercial banks, namely Access, Fidelity and Zenith banks in Anambra State, were selected using random sampling. Data collected from employees through a structured questionnaire were analysed using Analysis of Variance through the aid of SPSS version 26. The findings reveal that formalisation has a significant and positive effect on employees’ commitment at (F-value=2.233; p-value=0.022). The hierarchical layer in the banks has a significant and positive effect on employees’ efficiency at (F-value=0.726; p-value=0.015), while departmentalisation also has a significant and positive effect on employees’ service delivery at (F-value=2.142; p-value=0.016). Overall, this study concludes that organisational structure has a significant and positive effect on the performance of employees in commercial banks. Corporate strategists and human resource managers in commercial banks need to leverage organisational structure to enhance employees' commitment, efficiency, and performance and as a strategic enabler for improving the delivery of quality service internally to colleagues and externally to customers.   Received: 19 January 2022 / Accepted: 13 April 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

      Abstract: The paper aims to study the effect of emotional intelligence and the performance of State Commercial Banks employees in Sri Lanka. Knowing the reason behind the job performance of workers is an important issue for scientific discipline. Theoretical viewpoints contain the emotional intelligence of executive-level employees, such as aspects of self-control, self-regulation, social understanding, empathy and motivation. Five basic hypotheses were investigated for employees’ emotional intelligence and performance to achieve the objective. The paper follows a quantitative approach. In total, 100 responses were collected from 153 samples, consisting of managerial level employees from Peoples Banks and Bank of Ceylon in Sri Lanka, analyzed using correlation and regression models. The findings of the study prove that emotional intelligence has a substantial positive relationship with employee success. It is suggested that the organization’s continuous training program is crucial to improving emotional intelligence and increasing managers’ performance levels.   Received: 30 January 2022 / Accepted: 4 April 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Criminal Policy on Environmental Crimes: Indonesia’s Perspective

    • Authors: Hanafi Amrani
      Pages: 360 - 360
      Abstract: This study aims to analyze Indonesia's perspective in criminal policy towards environmental crime considered as malum prohibitum offense. Almost all academics agree that environmental crime is known as malum prohibitum offense because of its form of regulation which is usually driven by the absence of mens rea and its evil nature. However, the results of some studies subsequently oppose the status of environmental crime as malum prohibitum offense because the criteria are not fulfilled. Indonesia regulates environmental crimes in administrative law, which are classified into malum prohibitum. Furthermore, they are classified into malum in se offense based on serious sanctions.   Received: 30 January 2022 / Accepted: 13 April 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Analysis of "Hierarchy of Needs" as a Strategy to Enhance Academics
           Retention in South African Universities

    • Authors: Bunmi Isaiah Omodan
      Pages: 366 - 366
      Abstract: A high attrition rate exists among South African higher education institutions, which poses a significant challenge to university productivity as an academic enterprise. The attrition/turnover seems disruptive and costly, and some of the disruptive implications are poor productivity, lack of motivation and poor morale to work, including skill drain. This theoretical paper presents Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory and its assumptions as a possible motivation that is needed to enhance academic staff retention in the university system. This study was designed using conceptual analysis within the principle interpretive paradigm, enabling the researcher to adequately engage critically in interpreting Maslow's hierarchy of needs and its assumptions as an alternative strategy that could enhance academic staff retention in the university system. The study argued that the five hierarchies of needs (physiological needs, safety/security needs, love and belongingness, esteem needs, and self-actualisation needs), as propounded by Abraham Maslow, are essential in ensuring academic staff retention in the system. The study concludes that total rewards in the form of basic needs, environmental safety and job security, creation of affectionate work-environment, the need for recognition and self-actualisation are the dimensions of academic staff retention in the university system.   Received: 11 January 2022 / Accepted: 4 April 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

      Abstract: The Muslim community in Indonesia interprets Covid-19 controversially, which may have various consequences. This paper aims to map the pattern of interpretation of Covid-19 among Muslims in Indonesia and analyze how different understandings hindered pandemic crisis countermeasures. The data were obtained from online news and social media, which were then confirmed by open interviews, specifically covering two areas: the respondents' views related to the interpretation of Covid-19 and the bases for their opinion. This study found three types of understanding: First, textual interpretation, in which Covid-19 was interpreted as a 'punishment and a creature of God, so there is no need to be afraid of; instead, we need to get closer to God. Second, contextual interpretation, where Covid-19 was interpreted as a disaster/trial, needs to be addressed by complying with health protocols in Indonesia and improving our spirituality. Third, spiritual interpretation, where Covid-19 was interpreted as a test, so those who passed this test will increase their piety. Thus, the controversy in understanding the substance of the Covid-19 pandemic needs to be overcome. This paper suggests that more intensive education is required to improve public knowledge about the Covid-19 pandemic to prevent further adversity in its countermeasures.   Received: 30 January 2022 / Accepted: 18 April 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022

  • Youth Political Participation in Conventional Forms in Albania 2011-2021

    • Authors: Dorina Bёrdufi, Sokol Pacukaj
      Pages: 403 - 403
      Abstract: Looking into the conventional forms of political participation in Albania, this paper analyzes the level of political decision-making participation of youth in this country in the period 2011-2021. The main focus is mapping the level of engagement of young Albanians into conventional politics, such as in the main political parties of Albania (Socialist Party, Democratic Party and Socialist Movement for Integration), youth forums, parliament, local and central government bodies. The result shows that has been a slight improvement in numbers and quality of youth in traditional politic, in terms of youth leader election, political activities and some presence of the young politicians in key political bodies of political parties and governance. The paper concludes that this positive inclination is still low in percentage compared to the old politicians in political leading positions, decision-making positions and in main political parties’ structure. The low level of participation of young people in politics hinders them from the proactive role and their involvement in the traditional political structure of the country.   Received: 10 March 2022 / Accepted: 25 April 2022 / Published: 5 May 2022
