Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to discuss whether artists create research outcomes in a revolving (or spiraling) process? This can be a catch-22 where their work is responding to and forecasting change, while the artist’s voice is often seen as too qualitative to provide research impact for university societies or to be compared with the quantitative data that scientists use.

Design/methodology/approach

Where will research methods, qualitative and quantitative overlap? The author knows that both methods are important for ongoing observations about creative arts practice. The qualitative is part of Holmes’ (2011/2012) query about how “knowledge involved in artistic thinking should […] include the issue of how mental images are given creative form, but this is a process that remains obscure in current art research” (p. 2).

Findings

For Holmes, “the knowledge product of art research cannot be considered separate from the researcher’s psychic processes; and the currently obscure relationship between artistic production and subjectivity might lead to one of the unique contributions to be made by art research” (Holmes, 2011/2012, p. 2). Holmes’ suggestion provides a strategic link to the way arts and sciences might overlap. “How do artists and scientists find a way to match issues, ideas and theories?” This may be especially so in relation to the integral use of image to empower a message.

Originality/value

This paper offers an original look at how artists empower with image.

Abstract

Care options for older people are important to individuals and to society, and currently, there is a crisis in this care. The chapter presents a research base projection onto the situation in England in 2045, using Office for National Statistics (ONS) modelling based on current population reaching the age of 85-years plus. We take three The Archers characters and fantasise about their lives in 2045, Shula and Kenton Archer and Hazel Woolley. Through them, we illustrate three options for care, namely, cared for by family members, buying in care in own home and moving into a care home. The financial aspects of these choices are explored.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to examine the common denominators of measurement properties of a Triple Bottom Line (TBL) dominant logic for business sustainability through time and across business contexts.

Design/methodology/approach

The method was based on a quantitative approach and a questionnaire survey in corporate Taiwan with a response rate of 68.5%.

Findings

This article uncovers and fortifies common denominators through time between oriental and occidental business contexts.

Practical implications

The framework of TBL dominant logic for business sustainability establishes a toolbox for practitioners to examine economic, social and environmental elements as the marketing strategy in connection with business sustainability.

Social implications

This enables to validate the framework of TBL dominant logic for business sustainability in previous research. Multiple dimensions are validated through time and across business contexts.

Originality/value

This study contributes to existing theory and previous research by fortifying the framework of TBL-dominant logic for business sustainability. The twenty-dimensional framework demonstrates universal measurement properties through time and across oriental and occidental business contexts.

Abstract

Online information services are increasingly being used in schools and school libraries, both as a source of information and as a means of teaching information skills. Types of online services available include cataloguing information services, bibliographic services, full‐text and statistical information services, videotex services, local and special interest services and electronic bulletin boards. These are discussed in relation to current educational theory and the possible curriculum applications in schools.

The purpose of this paper is to provide a historical account of the May 1985 spread spectrum FCC decision.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to provide a historical account of the May 1985 spread spectrum FCC decision.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper presents a case study giving a first‐person account of decision making at the FCC in 1985.

Findings

The May 1985 decision did not start as an attempt to bring specific products to market, but as part of a program to remove anachronistic technical regulations and allow a free market in innovative technology, subject only to responsible interference limits.

Research limitations/implications

Research limitations encompass typical limitations of a narrow case study of a historical event.

Practical implications

The paper guides future decision making in telecommunications policy.

Originality/value

The paper reflects the path of deregulation in the 1980s resulting in widespread product innovation in the twenty‐first century.

Abstract

Over the last years, and under the umbrella of the “sharing economy,” various new social practices and novel business models have been established worldwide. Such practices and models are perceived both as opportunity and challenge for existing (urban) public governance regimes. It is in this sense that the sharing economy has become a contested issue and regularly provokes bold governance responses. However, local governing authorities first need to interpret, negotiate, and establish what exactly is “at issue” in order to (re-)act adequately. While such “politics of signification” are well-studied, for instance, in social movements and public media discourse, research on the concerted framing activities of public administrations as well as on the strategic work that sets the stage for public policy-making is relatively sparse – and entirely lacking for the context of the sharing economy. In this chapter, the authors look behind the scenes of the policy-making in the City of Vienna, Austria. The empirical findings unearth six distinct mechanisms –“delimiting,” “negotiating,” “detailing,” “linking,” “justifying,” and “situating” – that are strategically applied to shape the “Viennese way” of governing the sharing economy. This research develops an in-depth understanding of what the authors conceptually dub “strategic issue work”: the manifold efforts that lead to, and underlie, in this case, the policy-making of a local government when it tries to come to terms with the governance challenges of the sharing economy.
