Abstract  

An intellectual property (IP)-centric, communication-based Innovation Agenda is proposed and investigated. The agenda, which is aligned with IP legal prescription, is defined as follows: the firm’s R&D expenditure is captured within products. The firm applies for a patent and files a trademark to protect its interests in the ‘patentable’ product, and issues a media communication, which may alter the perception of future cash flows, and thereby market price. Upon patent issuance and trademark registration, the firm will then seek another media communication. Spearman (partial) correlation analysis shows strong correlation among the various proxy metrics suggesting that the model basis may exist. The model proposes a novel link among national socioeconomic metrics, corporate strategy, and the technology based innovative firm. Finally, the model supports the inclusion of trademark and media communications data to be considered in socioeconomic modeling.

This study aims at revealing the power of architectural representation through drawing on community engagement and development during the design process. Considering the drawings as a medium for obtaining knowledge and using them as a means of communication, for the generation and development of designs together with the community, the idea behind was to understand if the representation and communication approach can trigger the community participation, engagement and education on understanding and creating their future city.

For the accomplishment of this research the mixed methodology was used, quantitative methods with tools such as questionnaires and mental maps, whilst qualitative method employed interviews, empirical studies and observation on the ground.

The use of a certain architectural representation as a communication means, that could be attractive and well understood by the community, can encourage public engagement, discussion and generation of ideas, by this ensuring their collaboration during the planning and design process, as active participants and well-informed citizens.

Abstract  

Numerous attempts have been made to validate the use of citation as an evaluation method by comparing it with peer review. Unlike past studies using journals, research articles or universities as the subject matter, the present study extends the comparison to the ranking of individual scholars. Results show that citation ranking and expert judgment of communication scholars are highly correlated. The citation method and the expert judgment method are found to work better in smaller research areas and yield more valid evaluation results for more prominent scholars.

Remarkable differences have been found in host-plant related chemical communication between Phyllotreta cruciferae Goeze and Ph. vittula Redtenbacher (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae). In preliminary screenings sizeable catches of Ph. vittula were recorded in traps baited with either 3-butenyl isothiocyanate, or a quternary mixture of 2-butenyl-, phenethyl-, 3-butenyl-and butyl isothiocyanates. Later studies revealed that Ph. vittula responded better to the above isothiocyanate mixture, than to allyl isothiocyanate, while Ph. cruciferae catches were always greater in allyl isothiocyanate baited traps. Of the four isothiocyanates in the mixture, 3-butenyl isothiocyanate may predominantly be responsible for attractivity of the mixture towards Ph. vittula .As such differences in isothiocyanate preference may occur also in other flea beetle species, for practical applications more efficient, selective and sensitive baits and traps may be developed in the future based on improved knowledge of the chemical communication of flea beetles and through optimal combination of effective isothiocyanate compounds. Both Ph. cruciferae and Ph. vittula rank among the most important pest flea beetles in Europe.

Bevezetés: Az egészségügyi dolgozók egymás közti kommunikációja, konfliktuskezelése, a megfelelő együttműködés kiemelkedően fontos a betegellátás sikerességében. Célkitűzés: A bemutatott kutatás egy nemzetközi összehasonlító felmérés része. A vizsgálat célja, hogy feltérképezze az egészségügyi dolgozók körében felmerülő konfliktusokat. Módszer: A magyar felmérésben 73 egészségügyi dolgozóval vettünk fel félig strukturált interjúkat a nemzetközi interjúprotokoll szerint, amely során munkahelyi konfliktushelyzetek elmesélésére kértük a résztvevőket. 30 interjút (15 orvos és 15 nővér) Atlas.ti 7 kvalitatív szoftverelemző programmal elemeztünk. A konfliktustörténeteket négy fő kategória mentén vizsgáltuk, ezek a következők: a konfliktusok forrásai, típusai, hatásai és a használt konfliktuskezelési stratégiák. Eredmények: Az interjúkból megismerhető az egészségügyben részt vevők munkahelyi konfliktusokkal kapcsolatos személyes tapasztalata. Kiemelendő a hierarchia és az implicit munkaszervezés jelentős befolyása, főleg az orvosok körében. Az elkerülő konfliktuskezelés miatt a konfliktusok egy része megoldatlan marad, ami negatív hatással jár az egyénre és a csoportra nézve is. Következtetések: Eredményeink segítségével a későbbiekben kialakítható egy egészségügyre specifikus konfliktuskezelési intervenció. Orv. Hetil., 2017, 158(16), 625–632.

Abstract  

This paper analyzes the communication between science and technology journals (STS), to illustrate patterns of differentiation and integration within scientific fields. First the STS field is delineated, using journal-journal citations as the empirical base. A strong and increasing differentiation is found, between 'qualitative STS', 'quantitative STS' (scientometrics), and 'S&T policy studies'. Given this process of differentiation, the relations between the three sub-fields of STS are analyzed, in terms of mutual flows of information, the joint information base, and research topics. Is differentiation and codification of sub-fields visible? The findings suggest that the relations between qualitative and quantitative STS are one-sided, and that integration between the sub-fields is almost completely lacking. However, the relations between scientometrics and S&T policy studies are much stronger and more substantial, and the same is the case for scientometrics and information science.
