Full-text available
Patents are temporary exclusive rights granted by the government for inventions in exchange for public disclosure. They are considered a proxy for technological innovation and are used in many disciplines ranging from economics and management to regional science. Yet, research on family firm innovation has only recently started to use patent data....
Article
Full-text available
Companies increasingly recognize the importance of communicating corporate social responsibility (CSR) including their engagement toward employees, the community, the environment and other stakeholder groups to attract applicants. The positive findings on the effect of CSR on applicants’ reactions are commonly based on the assumption that companies...

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in an upsurge in the spread of diverse conspiracy theories (CTs) with real-life impact. However, the dynamics of user engagement remain under-researched. In the present study, we leverage Twitter data across 11 months in 2020 from the timelines of 109 CT posters and a comparison group (non-CT group) of equal size. Wit...
Article
Full-text available
In the field of evidence-based management, the academic-practice gap is well-known and undermines the transfer of scientific findings to evidence-based decision-making. In this paper, we introduce the practical approach of community augmented meta-analysis (CAMA) that serves to ease cumulative evidence formation and dissemination in psychology. CAM...
Article
Full-text available
The role of family firms in innovation and the question of whether family firms show differences in innovation investments and outcomes are intensely debated. To address these issues, Duran, Kammerlander, van Essen, and Zellweger (2016) published a meta-analytic structural equation model (MASEM) showing that family firms produce more innovation out...

Nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPI) such as stay‐at‐home orders aim at curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus, SARS‐COV‐2. In March 2020, a large proportion of the German population supported such interventions. In this article, we analyse whether the support for NPI dwindle with economic worries superimposing virus‐related worries in the mo...
Article
This editorial briefly introduces the six articles included in the fifth “Hotspots in Psychology” of the Zeitschrift für Psychologie. The format is devoted to systematic reviews and meta-analyses in research-active fields that have generated a considerable number of primary studies. The common denominator of published papers is the application of r...
Article
The present study updates and extends the meta-analysis by Haus et al. (2013) who applied the theory of planned behavior (TPB) to analyze gender differences in the motivation to start a business. We extend this meta-analysis by investigating the moderating role of the societal context in which the motivation to start a business emerges and proceeds...
Article
For identifying psychological hotspot topics, a mere focus on bibliometric data suffers from a publication delay. To overcome this issue, we introduce Twitter mining of ongoing online communication among scientists for the detection of psychological research topics. Specifically, we collected the entire 69,963 tweets posted between August 2007 and...
Article
Full-text available
Meta-analyses are an important part of the methodological inventory for the synthesis of empirical findings and the derivation of evidence-based measures. So far, univariate approaches have dominated, which aim at the integration and analysis of individual effect sizes and are, thus, of limited value for testing multivariate (causal) relationships....
Article
Full-text available
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the German government and the 16 German federal states to announce a variety of public health measures in order to suppress the spread of the coronavirus. These non-pharmaceutical measures intended to curb transmission rates by increasing social distancing (i.e., diminishing interpersonal contacts)...
Article
Zusammenfassung. Die Erforschung extremistischer Radikalisierung hat durch digitale Verhaltensspurdaten, wie z. B. Social-Media-Posts oder öffentlich zugänglichen Medien, einen neuen Auftrieb erfahren. Vor dem Hintergrund, dass Big Data als „epistemologische Revolution“ angesehen wird, liefert die vorliegende systematische Literaturübersicht einen...
Article
Zusammenfassung. Meta-analytische Ansätze gehören in der Psychologie inzwischen zum einschlägigen Methodeninventar zur Synthese empirischer Befunde und zur Ableitung evidenz-basierter Maßnahmen. Bisher dominieren univariate Ansätze, welche auf die Integration und Analyse einzelner Effektstärken abzielen und damit zur Prüfung multivariater (Kausal–)...
Chapter
Consultative participation of citizens in political decision-making processes has been increasing in order to facilitate democratic legitimacy and responsiveness. Consequently, participatory budgets have been established as a 'best practice' for consultative participation of citizens in political decision-making processes. The authors compare parti...
Article
Drawing on the information processing perspective, this paper investigates how young adults' attitudes toward entrepreneurship are shaped by their beliefs about the role and activities of entrepreneurs. Our first study (N = 129) reveals that young adults hold a biased set of beliefs. They believe that entrepreneurship affords agentic aspects (e.g.,...
Article
Full-text available
Trust and satisfaction with the government are the most important indicators of a functioning democratic system. Scholars diverge in their opinions of whether satisfaction causes trust or vice versa or whether both variables reinforce each other simultaneously. This study applies an instrumental variable approach to shed light on this discussion. W...
Article
This study examined the circular structure of values in China. The circular structure is a central element of Schwartz value theory and visualises the idea that some values are similar while others conflict with one another. Whereas numerous studies addressed the question whether the circular structure of values can be generalised cross-culturally,...
Article
Full-text available
The theory of planned behavior (TPB) is a prominent framework for predicting and explaining behavior in a variety of domains. The theory is also increasingly being used as a framework for conducting behavior change interventions. In this meta-analysis, we identified 82 papers reporting results of 123 interventions in a variety of disciplines. Our a...

Full-text available
The impact of national culture on organizational practices is often discussed by researchers. To contribute to the discussion, this paper examines the relationship between national culture and organizational communication practices. In particular, we investigate the impact of power distance, uncertainty avoidance, humane orientation, and assertiven...
Book
Lineare Strukturgleichungsmodelle sind aus der verhaltenswissenschaftlichen Forschung nicht mehr wegzudenken. Sie sind ein nützliches Werkzeug, um Hypothesen über Beziehungen zwischen Variablen zu prüfen und – mehr noch – Implikationen kausaler Strukturen zu testen. In diesem Buch werden Grundlagen, Hintergründe und die Vorgehensweisen bei der Spez...
Article
Full-text available
Drawing on transaction cost economics (TCE) and social exchange theory (SET), we develop and test an integrative model of strategic alliance performance using meta-analytic structural equation modelling. Results reveal that TCE’s key constructs (e.g., relationship specific investments, opportunism, and environmental uncertainty) influence SET’s key...
Article
Ein Zusammenhang zwischen Teamdiversität und Leistung konnte trotz intensiver Forschung in den letzten Jahrzehnten nicht belegt werden. Manche empirische Studien weisen eine positive signifikante Beziehung mit der Teamleistung auf, während andere wiederum eine negative oder nicht signifikante Beziehung mit der Teamleistung aufweisen. Basierend auf...
Article
The present paper disentangles the effect of prior entrepreneurial exposure on entrepreneurial intention in terms of different types of exposure and their perceived quality. Drawing on the theory of planned behavior, the paper analyzes whether attitude, subjective norm, and perceived behavioral control mediate the influence of entrepreneurial role...
Article
Full-text available
Meta-analytical structural equation models (MASEM) have become and interesting advancement to simple bivariate meta-analyses that suffer from omitted variable bias. In contrast, MASEM offer the possibility to specify complex causal structures and to test the viability of these structures. In addition, MASEM can shed light into research fields that...
Article
Theoretical models of the antecedents and outcomes of work–home interference (WHI) suggest that work characteristics (e.g., job stressors, working hours) increase the probability that an individual experiences work–home interference. Since work–home interference is considered as a role stressor, these experiences should be detrimental for long-term...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose – Although the percentage of female entrepreneurs has increased over the past several years, it is far below the level of males. Drawing on the theory of planned behavior and role congruity theory, the purpose of this paper is to specify a model in which the relationship between gender and EI is mediated by three essential motivational cons...
Article
Full-text available
Although the use of structural equation modeling has increased during the last decades, the typical procedure to investigate mean differences across groups is still to create an observed composite score from several indicators and to compare the composite’s mean across the groups. Whereas the structural equation modeling literature has emphasized t...
Article
Full-text available
Schwartz' theory of human values has found widespread interest in the social sciences. A central part of the theory is that the 10 proposed basic values (i.e., achievement, power, self-direction, hedonism, stimulation, benevolence, universalism, conformity, security, and tradi-tion) are arranged in a circular structure. The present study applies a...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose – The present study aims to analyze the predictive value of three motivational dispositions (need for achievement, need for affiliation, and need for power) for job involvement and organizational commitment and to investigate cross-cultural differences between Germany and South Korea between these predictions. Design/methodology/approach –...
Article
Research on work–nonwork conflict (WNC) is based on the assumption that incompatible demands from the work and the nonwork domain hamper role performance. This assumption implies that role demands from both domains interact in predicting role performance, but research has been largely limited to main effects. In this multi-source study, we analyze...
Article
Full-text available
Interaction effects between explanatory constructs are an important part of many social theories. Analyses of interaction effects between variables using regression techniques have low power because they do not control for measurement errors. Therefore, latent interaction modeling using structural equation modeling (SEM) has been proposed as a bett...
Article
The “Cranfield Project on International Strategic Human Resource Management” (Cranet) is an international research network which regularly conducts a survey of human resource management (HRM) issues in more than 40 countries. As a result, Cranet provides rich data on the institutionalization, practices, and organizational characteristics of HRM. Wh...
Article
Full-text available
We argue that many approaches to cross-cultural measurement in entrepreneurship research have been flawed and that there is a need for scales measuring cultural orientations at the individual level. We developed scenario-based scales measuring seven cultural orientations of business owners, namely uncertainty avoidance, power distance, in-group col...
Article
Full-text available
This study compares two theoretical models that make different assumptions about the structure of subjective health constructs and about the effects of job stressors and working time variables on health. The first model, the sequence model, is based on sequential models of the development of ill-health and posits that chronic fatigue and sleep prob...
Article
Due to changing market conditions, a lowering of trade-barriers, and new technological developments, the competitive environment of firms has changed dramatically over the past decade. Consequently, even small firms face increasing international competition from the beginning of their organizational life. The increasing importance of trans-national...
Chapter
Full-text available
Although the use of structural equation modeling has increased in the last years, researchers still rely on traditional methods (e.g., analysis of variance) when investigating mean differences of some construct across groups. However, observed composite scores on which such analyses are based cannot simply be equated with the latent or true means o...
Article
Full-text available
This article applies the testing procedures for measurement invariance using multigroup confirmatory factor analysis (MGCFA). It illustrates these procedures by investigating the factorial structure and invariance of the Portraits Value Questionnaire (PVQ, Schwartz et al.: J. Cross Cult. Psychol. 32(5), 519–542 (2001)) across three education groups...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The transitional phase from doctoral to postdoctoral level represents a critical intersection for women pursuing academic careers. Statistical over representations of men in the upper echelons of university hierarchies raise important questions concerning the under-representation of women at professorial levels. Based on the Social Cognitive Career...

The transitional phase from doctoral to postdoctoral level represents a critical intersection for women pursuing academic careers. Statistical over representations of men in the upper echelons of university hierarchies raise important questions concerning the under-representation of women at professorial levels. Evidence from multidimensional analy...
Chapter
Job involvement (JI) and organizational commitment (OC) are central to organizational behaviour and organizational outcomes. Whereas prior research focused on contextual predictors of JI and OC and mostly used samples from one culture, the present study analyzes the predictive value of motivational dispositions (need for achievement, need for affil...

Article
Full-text available
In this dissertation, I propose four dimensions that serve to describe working time and that constitute the various working time schedules (e.g., part-time, shift-work, compressed work weeks). These are the (i) working time duration (i.e., how long does the individual work), (ii) the mean time of day (i.e., at which time of the day does the individ...
