  • Relationship between Neuromarketing and Online Purchasing Decisions of
           Peruvian Consumers in the Post-Pandemic Era

    • Authors: Jesús Catherine Saldaña-Bocanegra, Helen Catalina Rabanal-León, Luigi Italo Villena Zapata, Nelly Roxana Carranza-Yuncor, Julissa Cruz Rosas, Wilfredo Santiago Bocanegra Merino
      Pages: 312 - 312
      Abstract: The pandemic has accelerated the transition toward e-commerce, highlighting the necessity of understanding how neuromarketing affects online purchasing decisions. This quantitative study, based on a correlational and cross-sectional design, explored the relationship between neuromarketing and purchasing decisions in virtual stores in northern Peru. Using a 40-item questionnaire, data from 498 adults in La Libertad and Lambayeque were collected. The analyses revealed significant correlations between cognition attention and the information search (rho=0.58) and alternative evaluation phases (rho=0.53), between emotion and the postpurchase stage (rho=0.54), and between memory and the recognition of need (rho=0.57), in addition to a strong direct association between cognition attention and the overall influence of neuromarketing on purchasing decisions (rho=0.72). These findings underscore the considerable impact of sensory and emotional experiences generated by neuromarketing on the critical stages of the purchasing behavior of Peruvian digital consumers, pointing to its relevance in enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty in the digital age. In conclusion, various components of neuromarketing, specifically linked to the generation of pleasant and memorable sensory experiences, have a significant influence on the search, evaluation, and postpurchase satisfaction behaviors of virtual consumers in the region studied.   Received: 3 March 2024 / Accepted: 13 June 2024 / Published: 02 July 2024
      Keywords: Research Articles ; A 360 View to Academic Program Reviews

      • Authors: Maytha AL-Ali
        Pages: 328 - 328
        Abstract: This paper presents key findings from a study conducted with several universities in the GCC region regarding their approach and use of e-Assessment within their learning environments. The study identifies key factors that could impact the use and quality of e-Assessment, and describe how those factors could influence forming a consistent and effective approach to employ a long-term e-Assessment approach.   Data was collected from several higher education institutions in the GCC region, using an online survey, in-depth interviews with academic administrators, and direct observation. The study identifies six critical factors that may have a direct or indirect impact on forming a consistent and effective approach to employ a long-term e-Assessment approach. Moreover, the study reveals a strong correlation between e-Assessment quality, and the centralization of e-Assessment strategy, e-Assessment administration, and e-Assessment Technology.    Received: 3 March 2024 / Accepted: 29 June 2024 / Published: 02 July 2024
        Keywords: Research Articles ; Didactic Aspects of Figurative Syntagms in the Teaching Process

        • Authors: Aida Kurani, Emilda Roseni
          Pages: 342 - 342
          Abstract: In the discursive process, figurative phrases with high expressive intensity are frequently used, representing one of the various sources of expression for each speaker in different communicative contexts. However, due to their nature, their teaching at school presents some difficulties. Although they are understandable to a particular linguistic community, they can be incomprehensible or difficult to interpret for anyone learning a foreign language, since their first meaning is in many cases not the meaning of the words that compose them and can be very different from the meaning they acquire in an idiomatic context. Idiomatic expressions rarely have corresponding translations in different languages, and their meaning is often rendered by completely different passages that have nothing in common with their direct meaning. In this article, we have tried to point out some of the methodological aspects to be considered when analyzing texts for didactic purposes and in foreign language teaching when it comes to figurative expressions. Since figurative phrases express a part of a nation’s culture, it is important for students to recognize the syntactic structures as words come together in the discursive process to express and convey thoughts and become part of various meaningful and formal grammatical relationships. They should be learned and acquired by keeping in mind the characteristics of their different types, their density, and their pragmatic use in the respective linguistic community. In this study, we will also try to show that the study of figurative syntagma can shed more light on theories of foreign language acquisition. Previous studies on figurative syntagma in Albanian have mainly been conducted within the narrow confines of linguistics, especially traditional linguistics. We assume that their investigation in the context of language didactics, as we approach it here, is only a first step that needs to be completed and deepened in further and more comprehensive studies.     Received: 28 April 2024 / Accepted: 30 June 2024 / Published: 02 July 2024
          Keywords: Research Articles ; Assessing the Influence of Sustainable Tourism Practices on Conservation
                 and Socio-Economic Development in Kosovo's Protected Areas

          • Authors: Nora Vizdik Thaqi, Agim Thaqi
            Pages: 349 - 349
            Abstract: This study investigates the impact of sustainable tourism on the conservation of Kosovo's protected areas, offering insights into the synergy between tourism development and environmental preservation. Through a survey of 114 protected areas and an analysis of managers' responses to 15 questions, the research evaluates the effects of sustainable practices on local employment, biodiversity, environmental integrity, and the preservation of cultural heritage. Utilizing linear regression and correlation analysis, the findings reveal that sustainable tourism practices significantly contribute to local employment growth, biodiversity conservation, environmental protection, and the maintenance of cultural heritage. These outcomes illustrate that sustainable tourism not only upholds the ecological and social fabric of protected areas but also promotes economic advancement. The study highlights the essential role of sustainable practices in protected areas, emphasizing their importance in ensuring the long-term preservation of these regions while supporting local economies and cultural heritage. The research underscores the necessity of integrating sustainable tourism within protected areas to achieve a balanced approach to conservation and development.   Received: 1 April 2024 / Accepted: 16 July 2024 / Published: 02 July 2024
            Keywords: Research Articles ; Transformative Influence of Shopping Malls on Albanian Consumer Behavior

            • Authors: Eduina Maksuti, Isa Erbaş, Elton Noti
              Pages: 364 - 364
              Abstract: The emergence of shopping malls in Albania has had a remarkable impact on the behavior of Albanian consumers. Initially, people visited these malls out of curiosity, then for entertainment, and eventually for shopping purposes. The new retail format has started changing the way customers shop. By offering products and services that appeal to customers they simultaneously provide a friendly and pleasant environment. This study delves into the impact of shopping malls on consumer behavior in Albania, focusing on factors such as product availability, accessibility, and atmosphere. A quantitative approach was utilized, emphasizing deductive reasoning. Primary data was collected through face-to-face surveys and analyzed with SPSS. According to the results, customers love shopping malls for their variety of products, exclusive items, and safe environment. They find malls accessible, thanks to easy navigation and parking, and they highly value cleanliness. The study highlights the significant impact of shopping malls on Albanian consumer behavior, driven by product variety, convenience, and amenities.    Received: 5 March 2024 / Accepted: 21 June 2024 / Published: 02 July 2024

                Pages: 378 - 378
                Abstract: This article presents a methodology to estimate disparities in factor endowments in a dynamic Heckscher-Ohlin model. The model integrates a static approach to intraindustry trade of two goods and two factors. By employing a Cobb-Douglas production function model (2 goods, 2 factors), we identify convergences and divergences in production, influenced by the elasticity of substitution between inputs. Our findings illustrate that, even if factor prices equalize, countries differing only in their initial capital-to-labor ratios may converge or diverge in income levels over time. Divergence can occur for parameter values that would imply convergence in a world of closed economies, and open ones.   Received: 15 March 2024 / Accepted: 16 June 2024 / Published: 02 July 2024

                       Copyright Regime

                • Authors: Ilda Muçmataj, Laura Çami Vorpsi
                  Pages: 391 - 391
                  Abstract: The development of digital technology has revolutionized the public's access to and utilization of protected works. Pre-existing analog works can now be easily converted into digital formats, providing users with various reuse opportunities. Libraries, museums, archives, and other cultural heritage institutions have embraced the digital revolution by digitizing their cultural and scientific collections. In addition to preserving these invaluable assets, they also aim to provide online access to their materials. However, despite their valuable efforts, these institutions often face significant challenges in locating and identifying the copyright holders to obtain the necessary authorization. This can lead to uncertainties regarding the legality of making these works available online, as using copyrighted materials without prior consent can expose them to the risk of copyright infringement claims. In the Republic of Albania, where cultural heritage institutions are also grappling with these challenges, the potential for infringement underlines the urgent need for efficient mechanisms to handle copyright-related matters when undertaking such ambitious projects. This article aims to present and analyze legal solutions that can facilitate the use of orphan works without infringing on copyright. It also delves into the potential challenges that may arise in implementing such legislation. Additionally, this article outlines the procedure for termination of orphan work status and the requirements for a reasonable compensation calculation for reappearing authors/right holders. Finally, it recommends further improvements to copyright and related rights legislation.   Received: 20 March 2024 / Accepted: 16 June 2024 / Published: 02 July 2024

                    Abstract: In the journey of fighting for the independence of people around the world, the Vietnamese people courageously stood up and fought against the invasion of the colonial French, which lasted more than 80 years, to regain independence for the nation through the general uprising in August 1945. On September 2, 1945, at Ba Dinh Square in Hanoi, in front of tens of thousands of compatriots nationwide, on behalf of the Provisional Revolutionary Government, President Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence, giving birth to the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. With core values about national rights and human rights, the Declaration of Independence is the crystallization of the highest of these values for humanity and contains contemporary significance and a profound strategic vision. Using historical methods, comparative methods, and analytical methods, the article focuses on solving four issues: (1) clarify the historical context of the Declaration; (2) clarify the basic content of the Declaration of Independence; (3) evaluate and affirm the meaning and value of the Declaration in the process of fighting for the independence of people around the world; and (4) draw some conclusions about the research problems.   Received: 30 March 2024 / Accepted: 30 June 2024 / Published: 02 July 2024

                           Higher Education Instructors in Gulf Cooperation Council Countries

                    • Authors: Mouna Abou Assali
                      Pages: 412 - 412
                      Abstract: Background: A distinct correlation exists between the happiness of teachers and the academic accomplishments of students. Similarly, the happiness interventions for teachers in an educational institution have been shown to increase productivity by 10%–12%. However, there is currently a dearth of a comprehensive review specifically centered on teacher happiness of higher education in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Objective: This systematic review aims to comprehensively analyze and integrate existing research on the levels and determinants of teacher happiness, job satisfaction, and well-being in higher education settings in the GCC. Methods: A comprehensive search from 2013 to 2023 was conducted for quantative empirical studies in English language across four databases using the PRISMA guidelines. The Quality Assessment Tool for Studies with Diverse Designs (QATSDD) was utilized to evaluate the quality of the included studies. Results: A total of seven studies (n = 1508) were chosen for the ultimate analysis, representing a range of higher education institutions in GCC countries. According to the QATSDD tool, six studies were classified as having medium quality, while one study was classified as having high quality. The research analysis identified several recurring themes, encompassing the determinants of teacher happiness, the findings specifically related to English language teachers, higher teacher satisfaction in private universities, and the association between teacher well-being and gender. Conclusion: Given the heterogeneity of the included studies, it is impossible to draw a strong and reliable conclusion.  Nevertheless, the most prevalent component in improving teacher satisfaction was found to be the compensation and support provided by supervisors and colleagues. It is important to note that the included studies were from specific countries, primarily Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Therefore, the conclusions cannot be generalized to all countries in the GCC.   Received: 17 January 2024 / Accepted: 30 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                        Pages: 423 - 423
                        Abstract: This paper examines the crucial role of the marketing mix in enhancing competitiveness within the tourism and hospitality industries in Kosovo. As global markets become increasingly dynamic and competitive, understanding the strategic implementation of the marketing mix is vital for securing market position and ensuring long-term business sustainability. This study explores the traditional 4 Ps (Product, Price, Place, Promotion) and the service-specific 3 Ps (People, Process, Physical Evidence) to demonstrate how they collectively contribute to customer satisfaction and competitive advantage. The research method combines theoretical analysis with empirical data, including a survey of foreign tourists in Kosovo, to assess the impact of the marketing mix on customer satisfaction. Findings indicate a strong correlation between the integrated application of the 7 Ps and increased customer satisfaction, underscoring the effectiveness of a well-coordinated marketing mix. This investigation not only enhances understanding of the marketing mix's influence on business success but also offers valuable insights for practitioners aiming to improve their competitive stance through customer-focused strategies. The study advocates for the strategic harmonization of marketing mix elements as fundamental to achieving customer satisfaction and fostering business growth, particularly in the competitive context of Kosovo's tourism and hospitality sector.   Received: 20 March 2024 / Accepted: 13 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                          Abstract: In the wake of the coronavirus epidemic, the global foreign trade economy has experienced a significant downturn, with the mode of cross-regional cooperation facing unprecedented challenges. This backdrop underscores the importance of analyzing the cooperation mode between Central and Eastern European countries (CEE) and China in the post-COVID-19 era. This paper explores the trade relations between CEE countries and China from 2008 to 2021 through a quantitative analysis of trade exchanges and competition, evaluating the competitiveness and resource complementarity of these regions. Utilizing the trade gravity model, the study conducts an optimization regression analysis of various trade factors, incorporating economic scale, population demographics, and European Union membership status as key variables. This rigorous approach allows for an in-depth examination of trade complementarity and combination indices, aiming to uncover the latent trade potential between CEE and China. The findings reveal a substantial potential for enhancing trade exchanges and expanding the trade space between the two regions. By further optimizing the trade structure and understanding the diverse national conditions of CEE countries, the study suggests that significant improvements can be made in economic and trade stability, as well as in standardized development. The research posits that fostering trade exchanges and cooperation not only between CEE and China but also involving Western European Union (WEU) countries, holds critical social value and economic development significance. This study's implications extend beyond mere trade optimization, suggesting a roadmap for bolstering economic resilience and fostering a more interconnected and mutually beneficial global trade environment in the post-pandemic world.   Received: 4 January 2024 / Accepted: 27 May 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                            Abstract: This study examines the impact of monetary policies on the inflation rate in the Western Balkans. Utilizing long-term panel data and a fixed effects estimator, the research explores the dynamic relationships among three key variables: interest rates, energy product prices, and inflation. The findings reveal a negative association between interest rates and inflation. Additionally, the study highlights the significant impact of energy on inflation compared to other commodity prices. These insights offer valuable guidance for policymakers, aiding in the development of targeted and effective economic strategies to address the specific challenges faced in WB6 countries. The implications derived from this research can inform strategic decision-making and policy frameworks aimed at mitigating inflationary pressures in the Western Balkans.   Received: 20 March 2024 / Accepted: 16 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                              Abstract: This paper uncovers the effects of economic liberalization on bank fragility using the panel data of ASEAN countries. Economic liberalization is proxied by using the economic freedom index, whereas bank fragility is measured by the inverse of the z-score. Our empirical results show that economic liberalization reduces the likelihood of bank default. This effect becomes less evident when a country has a higher degree of financial development or confronts more severe uncertainty. Moreover, while financial liberalization plays a decisive role, the effect of trade liberalization is insignificant. Our findings are robust for various estimators, alternative measures of economic liberalization and bank fragility, and when taking into account the endogeneity problem. Our findings suggest several policy implications for the policymakers.   Received: 30 March 2024 / Accepted: 23 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                                  Abstract: The current research aims to examine the entrepreneurial intentions of students enrolled in the business administration program at a private Peruvian University. This investigation employs Ajzen's renowned theory of planned behavior to gain insights. Additionally, the study aims to ascertain whether any gender disparities exist within the obtained results. The study employed a quantitative methodology, utilizing a cross-sectional design. A questionnaire was administered to assess the entrepreneurial intentions of the selected sample. The analysis commenced with the creation of comparative tables to delineate entrepreneurial intentions both holistically and across gender lines. Subsequent to this, correlational analyses were conducted, encompassing variables within both a general framework and those specific to gender. Additionally, both overall and gender-specific linear regression analyses were undertaken. Following this, an evaluation of data normality was executed, accompanied by the administration of the non-parametric Kruskal-Wallis test to identify group disparities. The results disclosed a robust and affirmative entrepreneurial intent among students, with a minor predominance of females over males. However, this discrepancy did not attain statistical significance in relation to gender. Correspondingly, the findings illustrated that the adopted model demonstrated considerable explanatory prowess, with the predictor variables significantly influencing entrepreneurial intentions.   Received: 16 September 2023 / Accepted: 21 May 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                                    Abstract: The field of translation studies distinguishes two main directions: firstly, the relationship between the translated and the original text, emphasising the preservation of meaning, linguistic equivalence and the strategies used in translation, and secondly the style of the translator, that has recently received attention in this field. This paper attempts to combine both of these approaches while analysing the translation of Johann W. Goethe's poetry into Albanian applied on three different translations of Goethe's ballad Erlkönig. A linguistic and textual analysis of these translations, has been also carried out. The main focus is on the analysis of the reciprocal relationship between the translator's style and the translated text. Furthermore, while comparing the translations, this paper explores the practice of poets translating poets and addresses the question of whether the fact that the translator being a poet influences the style of the translated text' Does the translator's poetic style influence the making of a good translation, and does the style of the translated poet (Goethe) have an influence on the poetic style of the translating poet'   Received: 23 April 2024 / Accepted: 29 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                                        Abstract: The research works related to job satisfaction are mostly quantitative and relational, where they converge in indexes in order to associate human resources with job satisfaction, however, there are few studies that deal with the subjective and intrinsic aspect of job satisfaction, that which deals with the analysis of experiences and experiences, with their possible interpretations, in order to build development alternatives, Consequently, through the present study, we sought to explore the social phenomenon of human resources management that promote job satisfaction in the collaborators of Peruvian companies. To this end, through a qualitative approach of phenomenological-hermeneutic design, 9 human resources managers from the industrial, commercial and service sectors were interviewed. The findings of this study highlight the importance of positive environment, professional growth and recognition in the commercial sector, balance and open communication in the industrial sector, and organizational culture and autonomy in the service sector, in addition; at a general level, common barriers to work-life balance are identified, highlighting the need for flexible policies and a proactive approach to well-being. As a consequence, the adequacy of development programs and recognition policies is recommended. At the research level, studies are recommended to evaluate the effectiveness of training and development programs in Peruvian companies, exploring labor policies and their contribution to the proper balance between work and personal responsibilities, with the aim of achieving a work-life balance, promoting the improvement of human resource management in organizations.   Received: 1 April 2024 / Accepted: 29 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                                          Abstract: In the Levant, the Islamic jihadist ideology has occupied international attention for decades. During the Syrian crisis, the country became an incubator for radical movements to invest in a power vacuum and flourish under chaotic circumstances. Rapidly, Syria began attracting jihadists from all over the world to join radical organisations while a new kind of jihad - global jihad - indulged in a world-wide ideological firesale. Firstly, between 2011-2013, we saw jihadist armies associated with ISIS and al-Qaeda acting freely without a central authority, but on April 9, 2013, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi shifted from localised jihadism to global jihadism, by declaring an Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, to attack the international coalition as well as the Syrian regime. As a response, six months later in October 2013, Hay’at Tahrir Al Sham was launched in refusal of al-Nusra’s annexation to ISIS, and uniting all anti-ISIS militias on the ground against their common enemy. Since then, jihadism has become conflicted, especially when Hay’at Tahrir Al Sham cut its ties with al-Qaeda, and all three entered into conflict. This paper follows the breakdown of the al-Qaeda project, the setbacks of ISIS, and the crisis between al-Qaeda and its offshoot branch, al-Nusra, culminating in the creation of the “Guardian of Religion” or, Hurras al-Din. The methodology utilises an institutionalisation approach and primary resources of al-Qaeda's leadership and spokespersons in order to closely follow the confrontations it has had with other movements, and the steps it has taken in order to eventually fragment. The study seeks to answer what is happening on the terrorist scene today, and to evaluate the role of al-Qaeda in the Levant. The outcome is that there is a new group that has grabbed the baton from al-Qaeda and is continuing its work in the Levant, named Hurras Ad-Din.    Received: 2 May 2024 / Accepted: 30 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                                            Abstract: This paper seeks to analyze the form of law enforcement in Albania against environmental crimes and civil liability committed by companies. This research uses the library research method, which collects data from legal material, legislation, literature, and research papers related to this research, processing and analyzing qualitatively. The result shows that there has not been law enforcement against the companies in environmental crime. In 2019, changes were made to the criminal code, where regulations were made on criminal offenses against the environment. Even though we have committed a criminal offense or not, being injured in an environment brings civil liability. Criminal and civil liability seem very similar, but many elements differ. The Albanian legislation, as well as that of other countries, is fully aligned with the Directive "On environmental responsibility, prevention and repair of environmental damage. The environmental legal framework has been drafted as a part of a legal package that aims to enable the transposition of all directives in this domain. The focus of this paper will be directed to the environment and legal framework, which aims to protect the environment by qualifying which kinds of persons' behaviors are considered illicit, in that measure that brings them in front of civil liability or criminal liability. Criminal law enforces the protection of society from crime. Interventions in the environment are considered a crime if the actions of responsible subjects break the balance of the environment . The civil legal framework has yet to make any provisions concerning environmental protection. There exist other legal mechanisms for requiring the damage and seeking compensation. It is worth using the methodological and theoretical methods to analyze two institutes. By using the analysis and comparison method, we address the most critical issues of relevance of research.    Received: 22 April 2024 / Accepted: 30 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

Method: Scoping review in which manuscripts published in journals indexed in the Scopus database between 2010 and 2024 were analyzed. For the search we used descriptors such as psychological well-being, mental health, psychological health, emotional health, violence, women in violence, domestic violence, violence against women, which were combined in the Scopus search engine together with the Boolean operators AND, OR. A narrative synthesis was performed. Results: The research report included 3 098 publications, of which 74.3% were original articles. A constant growth in the number of articles was observed throughout the study period, especially from 2021 onwards, with an increase in 2023 (n=371) compared to 2010 (n=108). The United States was the country with the highest scientific production (29.3%). The journals with the highest number of publications were Journal Of Interpersonal Violence (USA) and the International Journal Of Environmental Research And Public Health (Switzerland). Among the descriptors with the highest impact were anxiety, depression, violence to women and pandemic. Conclusions: The research on psychological well-being in women who have suffered violence has attracted the interest and importance of researchers during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, mostly from institutions in the United States, and finally, there is evidence of a trend in studies related to the implementation of policies and plans for psychological well-being in people who present metal health problems and in the female gender.   Received: 22 April 2024 / Accepted: 30 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

It is widely known that we live in a globalized world, where language and intercultural skills are necessary among professionals in different fields. Through a case study approach, we explore how intercultural awareness, communication, and adaptability can enhance students’ language learning experiences. The findings contribute to curriculum development and pedagogical practices, emphasizing the importance of intercultural skills in preparing students for global communication and collaboration. This research aims to understand the extent to which intercultural competence is developed during the ESP course and suggest new approaches to learning/teaching ESP. Purpose: The purpose of this article is to suggest the integration of intercultural elements into the current English for Specific Purposes syllabus at AUT. The aim is to enhance the development of intercultural competence skills among students. Methodology: The methodology involves a critical review of the existing ESP syllabus used at Agricultural University of Tirana. Findings: The analysis shows that the current syllabus provides some cultural aspects but does not develop students’ intercultural competence. The syllabus’s primary goal is to develop linguistic skills and includes very little factual knowledge regarding business culture. Suggestions: It is suggested to adapt the current syllabus and incorporate intercultural elements into each unit of the textbook. This adaption requires the inclusion of additional materials that enhance intercultural competence through various tasks such as discussion, comparisons, and assignments. Value: the integration of intercultural activities in ESP courses means a shift towards a more contemporary educational approach and preparing the students for the global market.   Received: 12 May 2024 / Accepted: 30 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

A convenience sampling method yielded a sample size of 175 undergraduate and graduate students from diverse academic programs. Participants completed a survey assessing satisfaction levels across various components of university training activities. Descriptive analysis using SPSS was conducted, revealing insights into student perceptions and satisfaction levels. Across planning training, class registration, testing and assessment, the organization of internships, projects, graduation theses, and other administrative activities, students' perceptions offer valuable insights into the effectiveness of institutional policies and procedures. While indications of overall satisfaction exist, particularly with instructor guidance during internships and project work, opportunities for enhancement are identified, particularly in class registration processes and the evaluation of training results. Leveraging these insights and implementing targeted interventions can further optimize student experiences, fostering a supportive learning environment conducive to academic success. This study contributes to the literature on educational management, providing actionable recommendations for institutions aiming to improve student satisfaction and academic outcomes.   Received: 19 May 2024 / Accepted: 30 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                                                        Abstract: Bibliometric studies allow us to observe and interpret the behavior and progress of scientific production on a topic. Thus, this research carries out a bibliometric analysis of the research carried out on Architecture as an art. For this purpose, articles published in journals indexed in Scopus in the period from 1983 to 2023 are considered; the search is restricted to TITLE ("Architecture as art") OR TITLE ("Architecture as art"), which makes 66 items visible. The analysis is carried out using the Bibliometrix and VOSviewer software, which formally and thematically characterizes scientific production through bibliometrics. The indicators used are: annual scientific production and by country, productivity by type of institution, cited articles, magazines with the most publications on Architecture as art, analysis of keywords and relationship with the topics, and finally, the main currents or trends of investigation. The results reflect that there is a trend in research in the relationship between architecture and music throughout history, highlighting how music has inspired architects in creating sensory spaces. The importance of theory and communication in architectural design is highlighted and the evolution of architecture as an art is explored.   Received: 16 May 2024 / Accepted: xx June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

In today's digital era, social media has transformed marketing strategies, offering food producers unparalleled opportunities for visibility, engagement, and influence. Through an extensive review of existing literature and case studies specific to Albania, this study investigates the various ways in which social platforms facilitate the promotion of food products in the Albanian context. It examines how brands leverage targeted marketing, user-generated content, influencer collaborations, and real-time feedback to reach and resonate with their Albanian audience. Additionally, the paper analyzes the challenges and opportunities presented by social media algorithms, ethical considerations, and shifting consumer preferences within the Albanian food industry. By understanding the dynamics of social media marketing within the Albanian market, businesses can develop tailored strategies to enhance brand awareness, foster consumer loyalty, and drive sales in this unique cultural and economic landscape.   Received: 2 May 2024 / Accepted: 30 June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                                                            Abstract: In the education sector, teachers’ persistence and resilience has been a topic of considerable debate, prompting us to question how professional development of teachers can enhance persistence and resilience among teachers. Current study highlights the importance of teacher’s behaviour and their vital role in education system.  To date, no systematic review has provided the answer to this question. Thus, this systematic review has presented a synthesis of six studies that have related teachers’ persistence and resilience to the professional development of teachers. The studies, two of which were qualitative, three quantitative, and one mixed method, detail evidence of teachers’ professional development leading to teachers’ persistence and resilience. For data collection surveys and semi-structured interviews has been conducted for collecting general data. The review results highlighted that professional development programs for teachers can enhance persistence and resilience among teachers, but these programs should be developed by focusing on carefully-chosen teacher and relevant institutional factors. Every teacher’s professional development has an impact on their capabilities to determine their role in education. There is a significant relation between teacher’s professional development and resilience. It is important to promote providing more nearer look to see how teachers feel and think and create more approaches to educate them.    Received: 17 January 2024 / Accepted: xx June 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

                                                              Abstract: This research paper investigates the dynamics of SME family-owned businesses within the Kuwaiti context and explores their impact on succession and continuity. With limited localized research in this area, this study aims to fill this gap by analyzing the influence of family dynamics, social norms, and emotional ownership on the sustainable development of family businesses in Kuwait. By employing a quantitative approach, a pilot investigation was conducted to gather data on various SME family-owned enterprises. Pilot research was conducted with 41 participants from various family-owned businesses in Kuwait to assess the validity and reliability of the measurement tools. The research findings offer a comprehensive insight into the operations and dynamics of family-owned enterprises in Kuwait. The descriptive analysis uncovered important demographic patterns among participants, indicating an equal distribution of genders and a notable presence of adults aged 21 to 35. This indicates the presence of a youthful and energetic group of employees engaged in family-owned businesses. A reliability analysis was conducted to ensure the dependability of the measuring instruments employed in the investigation. The results, as determined by Cronbach's alpha coefficients, demonstrated satisfactory reliability for most variables. The study employed a linear analysis using ANOVA to examine potential variations in family business dynamics based on gender and generation. Surprisingly, the results showed that there were no significant statistical variations between genders or generations when it came to emotional ownership, succession characteristics, and family membership. By examining the impact of family dynamics, social norms, and emotional ownership, this study contributes to the development of effective strategies for succession planning the growth and continuity of family businesses in Kuwait.   Received: 7 April 2024 / Accepted: 2 July 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024

Specifically, utilizing structural equation modeling with AMOS, the research investigates the roles of attitudes, autonomy support, and perceived behavioral control among 381 postgraduates enrolled in the education department across three public universities in Nigeria. The findings underscore that positive attitudes towards extracurricular activities and the level of autonomy support received significantly bolster students' intentions to develop competencies. However, the impact of perceived behavioral control on the intention to develop competences was negative but significant. This investigation thus provides nuanced insights into the psychological dynamics that shape competence development intentions within the academic sphere, particularly among university students.   Received: 15 May 2024 / Accepted: 2 July 2024 / Published: 5 July 2024
