An established Agent Based Model (ABM) of wealth distribution that creates representative Pareto distribution of wealth is used to simulate the impact of Zakat on the wealth distribution in an artificial society. The standard model generates representative wealth distribution patterns found in empirical studies. The model is customized to introduce...
Purpose – This paper suggests an agent based model of economic behavior based on which it argues that the Islamic charity of Zakat can be rationalized as it significantly reduces wealth inequalities. Design/methodology/approach – An Agent Based Model (ABM) of wealth distribution (Wilensky, 1998) is configured to introduce Zakat in the model. Simula...

I was sensing it earlier, and my collegue also pointed this out day before, but yesterday I found it hard proof. Do not trust ChatGPT for citing and delegating your LR, except for areas in which you are new and need a bird eye view. See following post that I did on LinkedIn for what happened.
Hi all readers
If you know of any research groups, discussion groups, or conference resources in agent based modeling for social sciences / computational social sciences, please advise

Dear Collogues, I am looking for some faculty exchange programs (one way or two way) wherein I can pass a semester in some business school or university as a teacher or co teacher for some accounting or SAP related courses (in exchange may be). I belief that this will be a great learning opportunity to learn from cultures and practices.
There may be some formal program to this affect, or arrangements can be made on one to one basis if somebody is interested.
I am looking for good conferences in organizational behavior or business and social sciences in general. On google search, many conference alert websites appear which I have explored and whose listings are almost fake or money making conferences. Is there any reliable source of academic conferences listings in these areas?
Salaam Dear Scholars
I am not profound in understanding Mathematics representations, and symbols and equations that are used in optimization or any other type of researchers. Can you please identify some resource to comprehend this, or may be some course or series of videos
Assalaam O Alaikum
I have a paper which is rich in terms of exploratory findings for accounting practices in SMEs in Pakistan, but lacks sound theoretical support. It was refused in academic journals on the same ground, and reviewers suggested to approach practitioners' journals. Can somebody advise what sort of practitioners' venues are available for publication.
How to present priming in the research model?
I presented it as a construct but interrogators said that priming is not a construct but a process. How to present this as moderating variable in the research diagram then?
