Abstract This paper examines the role identity of university based principal investigators (PIs), as well as the learning mechanisms that underpin this position. PIs have become the focus of increasing research attention which has argued that they, along with universities and funding bodies, form an increasingly crucial tripartite in public research environments. Although the PI position is well recognised among scientific peers and research institutions, a role identity is still emerging and re...

Abstract Governments of developing nations and ‘development partners’ consider education as an ‘international product’ that makes economic advancement possible. Hence, education in developing nations is always sluggish in responding to the changes of contemporary concepts. The fourth industrial revolution is a concept that explains the latest stage of economic development. When many developed countries’ education systems are still struggling to cope with this concept, developing countries want t...
Abstract Our study analyzes the patent transactions of the top 58 US universities in the yeas from 2002 to 2010. We find that 37.0% of the patents granted at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) have been involved in a form of monetization. Among them, 29.7% have been licensed out, 5.9% have been reassigned to other universities, National Laboratories, federal agencies or non-profit entities, and 1.3% have been transferred to companies. We investigate the patent characteristics ...

Abstract SMEs increasingly participate in collaborative innovation networks (CINs), enabling them to access valuable external knowledge from other actors while maintaining high levels of internal competencies. The SME absorbs this knowledge to achieve reciprocal learning through its contribution to the common CIN goals, and one-way learning to improve its own organization's performance. This knowledge absorption varies according to the SME's context, described with factors such as the turbulence...

Abstract Social media plays a significant role during pandemics such as COVID-19, as it enables people to share news as well as personal experiences and viewpoints with one another in real-time, globally. Building off the affordance lens and cognitive load theory, we investigate how motivational factors and personal attributes influence social media fatigue and the sharing of unverified information during the COVID-19 pandemic. Accordingly, we develop a model which we analyse using the structura...

Abstract Global climate change, rapid urbanization, and drastic economic development pose many threats and challenges to humanity, increasing the necessity for sustainable human development, urban ecological management, and low-carbon transformation. The current studies on urban management model are relatively scattered, while most of them focus on one-dimensional and problem-oriented measures. Firstly, we review the history of urban ecological management's development, including four stages, i....

Abstract Despite the growing importance of Do-it-Yourself laboratories for science, technology, and innovation advancement, scholars have yet to find how and when people enhance their attitude toward using such laboratories. Drawing on the technology acceptance model and self-regulation theory, we theorized and examined a model to show that the effect of self-efficacy on attitude toward using Do-it-Yourself laboratories is mediated by perceived ease of use, whereas the relationship between perce...

Abstract Carbon tax and carbon emission trading are used as emission reduction strategies. This paper re-analyzes the differences between the carbon tax and carbon trading by applying a recursive dynamic computable general equilibrium model, called the CEEEA (China Environmental-Energy-Economy Analysis) model. Unlike previous literature, we make the gross domestic product an exogenous variable and explore different effects between carbon tax mechanism and carbon trading mechanism on the environm...

ABSTRACT This paper examines the long-run and short-run asymmetric effects of gold and cryptocurrency returns on the Thai stock market. Employing daily data on gold prices from 2000 to 2019 and on cryptocurrency (Bitcoin) from 2013 to 2019 in a linear and non-linear Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) framework, we investigate and contrast the hedging effectiveness of gold and bitcoins for equities. This study also evaluates whether hedging potential of gold or cryptocurrency remains equally s...
