Failure to reach data saturation has an impact on the quality of the research conducted and hampers content validity. The aim of a study should include what determines when data saturation is achieved, for a small study will reach saturation more rapidly than a larger study. Data saturation is reached when there is enough information to replicate t...

... Two of the ethnographers were female nurses and the third was a male nurse, all of whom did not work in any of the included hospitals. They entered the children's units, wearing their nursing uniforms and blended in as natural participants [43]. The ethnographers participated in daily nursing activities as shadow nurses whilst keenly observing and documenting activities related to children's pain assessment and management. ...
... Despite the fact that literature reviews do not yield practical recommendations for companies, this research might be of interest to firms because it demonstrates the growing interest of OM/SCM scholars and practitioners in cultural dimensions. Cultural values and practices matter because they help companies become more flexible, by responding to the business environment (Fusch et al., 2016). ...

... As these emergency situations likely exacerbate finances (Barringer, 2016) or reputations (Tutterow & Evans, 2016) of an institution, higher education institutions have developed communication plans to minimize the impacts of crises on their daily operations and community activities. Information dissemination is one of the most critical issues concerning crisis management (Fusch et al., 2018). Therefore, decades of research on academic institutions contributed to the knowledge on the practical ways in which colleges and universities can effectively inform students, faculty, staff members, and their local communities about their coping strategies in crisis (Butler & Lafreniere, 2010;Egnoto et al., 2016;Mastrodicasa, 2008). ...
... Transformational leadership has the capacity to achieve "best possible organizational performance" (García-Morales, Jiménez- Barrionuevo, & Gutiérrez-Gutiérrez, 2012, p. 1040Palmer, 2016). Even though there are studies with encouraging outcomes that can be applied to manufacturing companies (e.g., Fusch & Fusch, 2015;Kurtessis, Eisenberger, Ford, Buffardi, Stewart, & Adis, 2015;Shunlong & Weiming, 2012;Steensma, 2010;Wayne, Shore, & Liden, 2017;Woehl, 2011;Yaghoubipoor, Tee, & Ahmed, 2013), the implementation of the transformational leadership style has proven cumbersome. This may be due to applications of leadership theories not complementing product processes well. ...

De kwestie wat het meeste oplevert, kan betrekkingToegepast op financiële geletterdheid betekent dit dat mensen geneigd zijn die geletterdheidscompetenties te verwerven die ze op dat moment het meest nodig hebben en dat ze die competenties bovendien zo maximaal mogelijk voor hun eigen doelen zullen inzetten zodat ze aan de hand van die competenties de best mogelijke keuzes voor zichzelf zullen maken(Durodola, Fusch & Tippins, 2017). Ze zullen dat doen ongeacht de situatie, bijvoorbeeld ongeacht of ze in kansarmoede verkeren of niet. ...
... It is an action that is commonly accepted in some circles while being viewed as a major ethical blunder in others. At the moment, the sole technical method for detecting potential ghostwriting is to match stylometric aspects of a maybe ghost-written paper with textual documents clearly written by the putative writer [38][39][40]. ...
... Of particular concern was the materialization of communitybased resilience practices in response to the threat of violent extremism. To address these research objectives and questions, a qualitative research design using 'mini-ethnographic case study method' [41] was developed to conduct this study. The mini-ethnographic case study method combines virtual ethnography with case study research methods. ...
... They were allowed to participate if they (1) were at least 18 years of age; (2) were existing medical students; (3) had not been formally diagnosed or self-diagnosed with psychiatric illness(es); (4) had not worked or was currently not working in a mental health facility (not including clinical placements); and (5) had no direct family members with mental health conditions. Additionally, the eventual sample size of this study was decided by data saturation [26] when interviewing more participants will not result in the identification of additional themes, ideas, opinions, or patterns during data analysis [27][28][29]. ...
