This paper investigates how reports concerning a given country’s prospects affect investment decisions in two stylized, artificial organizational settings. We designed a role-game laboratory experiment, where subjects were asked to make investment decisions for two types of fictitious companies from the same country. We found that when available re...

In this paper, we focus on limited and joint-stock active companies operating between 2008 and 2016 within the Brescian manufacturing system (n=7,619). After processing data for 1,047 firm-level agreements, we examined the impact of economic and organisational features on companies' decentralised bargaining activity. In a first probit model, the pu...

Peer review is not only a quality screening mechanism for scholarly journals. It also connects authors and referees either directly or indirectly. This means that their positions in the network structure of the community could influence the process, while peer review could in turn influence subsequent networking and collaboration. This paper aims t...

This paper examines the bibliometric impact of JASSS on other ISI- and Scopus-indexed sources by examining inward and outward citations and their inter-relation. Given the prestige of JASSS, this analysis can measure the growth and dynamics of social simulation and give us an indication of the direction in which social simulation is moving. Results...

La comprensione delle modalità attraverso cui gli attori econo-mici cooperano riducendo le asimmetrie informative e costruendo fiducia è cruciale soprattutto oggi dove i mercati sono sempre più globalizzati e le istituzioni formali di regolazione dell'inte-razione economica sembrano giocare un ruolo minore rispetto a meccanismi endogeni ed informal...

SOCIABLE aims at studying the effect of the social infrastructure on the elder's cognition in Brescia through a cross-disciplinary perspective that looks at: (1) the characteristics of social networks and neighbourhood social capital that can help preserve cognitive abilities or eventually improve the cognitive reserve of the elderly; (2) the mechanisms through which these social factors may give rise to formal/informal community welfare services that help to manage cognitive diseases, including the facilitating function of the urban infrastructure. Looking at these factors comprehensively is key to explore complex, integrated, socially distributed processes of disease management, which might ensure higher resilience and sustainability of social structures against uncertainties and changes. This integrative perspective on social, health and urban infrastructure is also instrumental to: (3) inform infrastructure designers, caregivers and service professionals about organisational processes that might reduce negative/magnify positive effects of social infrastructure assets on cognition, which a medicalization-oriented outlook tends to neglect; (4) create a research-action platform that links local stakeholders to envisage, coordinate and enact socially and economically feasible organisational paths that help the elderly and his/her relatives to cope with uncertainties and fragilities.
