Happy for controversial input on the topic of trade under climate change constraints as carbon markets are heterogenous and local.
Besides the many positive effects of raising efficiency, higher transparent quality standards, reduced transaction costs, saved lifetime, status leveraging, group cohesion, entrepreneurship via franchises, etc, the branching of the food chains also had negative externalities.
Of these negative externalities monocultures of agricultural systems, decreased biodiversity, waste, fostering the automobile culture via drive-ins, adiposity, and plastics seem to be the most obvious in retrospect. Happy for more input on this.
Is there research about the historical impact of the negative externalities of food chains on agricultural systems available?

Hello! am looking for a research question for my thesis for my bachelor's in business administration. I am really interested in Vertical Farming. Does anyone have any ideas?
How do the new ICT information technologies and Industry 4.0 contribute to improving the efficiency of the functioning of business entities?
The functioning of which areas of economic activity of companies and enterprises is improved by the implementation of ICT information technologies and/or Industry 4.0?
The pandemic has accelerated the implementation of ICT information technology into business operations and the use of the Internet to promote and sell product and service offerings. The SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic indirectly accelerated the development of ICT information technology applications in various aspects of business. During the pandemic, lockdowns were introduced on selected, mainly service sectors of the economy. As part of anti-pandemic security instruments, citizens infected with the coronavirus had to stay at home in quarantine for several to several days. As a result, quarantined consumers started ordering and buying products and services more via the Internet. On the other hand, companies under lockdown were able to conduct their business via the Internet. Consequently, many companies and businesses during the pandemic increased their use of the Internet for their business operations. Many businesses have increased the scale of sales of products and services offered to customers via the Internet. Many companies during the pandemic built or developed their online sales platforms. The scale of turnover carried out through the Internet in many companies and enterprises has even increased several times. As a result, the scale of e-commerce increased. The turnover of courier companies increased. E-logistics has developed. The use of ICT information technology and Industry 4.0 in various aspects of business has increased. When placing orders via the Internet and making purchases of products and services, citizens, including consumers and entrepreneurs, increasingly made payments for ordered products, services, semi-finished products, components, raw materials, etc. via the Internet. The development of online payments and settlements has resulted in the acceleration of the development of e-banking, especially online and mobile banking. In enterprises, computerized systems are being developed to support management processes, decision-making processes. The improvement of computerized enterprise management systems is currently being carried out by increasing the scale of use of Internet technologies and Industry 4.0. Examples are investments in computerized management and decision-making process support systems, in which so-called digital twins of economic, business processes and/or specific spheres of conducted production, service, trade, etc. are built. During the pandemic of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus (Covid-19), the scale of investment by companies and enterprises in the development of computerized decision-making systems, in which the aforementioned digital twins and other innovations of Industry 4.0 technology are used, increased significantly. The development of information processing technologies in the era of the current technological revolution termed Industry 4.0 is determined by the development and growth of applications of ICT information technologies, Internet technologies and advanced data processing. The technological revolution currently taking place, referred to as Industry 4. 0 is determined by the development and implementation into economic processes of the following technologies: analytical and database technologies Big Data Analytics, Data Science, cloud computing, machine learning, personal and industrial Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, Business Intelligence, autonomous robots, horizontal and vertical data system integration, multi-criteria simulation models, digital twins, additive manufacturing, Blockchain, smart technologies, cyber security instruments, Virtual and Augmented Reality, and other advanced data processing technologies Data Mining. Thanks to the application of new Industry 4.0 technologies, computerized multi-criteria simulation models known as digital twins are now being created in many companies, enterprises and financial institutions. Building digital twins of entire processes of production, service provision, procurement logistics, manufacturing and distribution in information systems, the company obtains an excellent tool to support the process of managing the organization. Also, business analytics combined with Big Data Analytics technology supports the management process of an enterprise, company, financial institution or other type of business entity. With these solutions, it is also possible to create simulation models of the future development of complex, multi-faceted economic, social, financial, pandemic, natural, climatic, etc. processes. With the help of Big Data Analytics, many companies are already carrying out market research based on the analysis of Internet users' sentiment regarding changes in trends in the evaluation of the quality of product and service offerings, company reputation, logos, corporate branding, etc. The applications of Big Data technology in this area, including computerized market research, analysis of Internet user sentiment, in supporting business management processes, I have described in my publications posted on my profile of this Research Gate portal.
In view of the above, I address the following questions to the esteemed community of scientists and researchers:
How do new ICT information technologies and Industry 4.0 contribute to improving the efficiency of business entities?
The functioning of which areas of economic activity of companies and enterprises is improved through the implementation of ICT information technologies and/or Industry 4.0?
What do you think about this topic?
What is your opinion on this issue?
I invite everyone to join the discussion,
Thank you very much,
Greetings respectable community of ResearchGate. I encountered some issues while gathering data from the World Bank Database, hence I would like to know if there are alternatives or other websites like the World Bank Database in which we can gather raw data.
The website can contain whatever form of indicators such as (developments, governance, competitiveness, economics, financial sector, etc.….) Thank you in advance for your assistance.
There are many styles of leadership. We will focus here on two opposite styles: Autocratic leaders who tell their employees what they want them to do, and Democratic leaders who let members of the group take a more participative role in the decision-making process.
Other types, such as, Laissez-faire leaders encourage employees to make their own decisions.

There is a discussion in Business Administration and Accounting that research need a type of "theory" that guide all the researches done in Brazil. It can be a problem to publish the most of the articles here in Brazil because of that problem. Do you think there is a trend to abandon the old theories worldwide? Or we can create new theories, so we can create new studies with another perspectives?

Hello. I am a student of "Business Administration" , and i want to do my research on how we can control, manage and ensure discipline in the roads of Bangladesh. As we can see that even after having certain rules and laws, passengers & drivers don't have any respect for the traffic system, which results in various major and minor accidents.
As it's and important issue in our country, I will be researching the root causes of this problem, and talk about what needs to be done.
I would appreciate your thoughts and ideas about this topic. Thank you.
One thing I noted in academia is that competition can sometimes be just as fierce as in the world of business.
Sometimes it can be small and petty like who should be first author, often triggered by purely selfish reasons and following justifications.
In other cases competition can be about grands, effectively rendering someone unemployed in some cases. I have seen bullying, discrimination more frequently than in the world of business, the place I come from.
This is truly the dark side of academia, there are also positive things but these are things that make me sick to my stomach.
What is your experience? Do you agree with my rather dark view? If not, why? If yes, how can we fix it?

I am currently working on sensitivity analysis in the context of AHP. I use the online tool BPMSG from Goepel, maybe someone here knows it. However, I have a problem with the traceability of the results. Let's assume that there are exactly 3 criteria in the AHP (C1,C2,C3). Then I would like to know how the final value for an alternative (a1) results if one of the criteria changes in weighting, right?
I'll just say C1 decreases by x. However, the value x that is taken away from C1 must be distributed to C2 and C3. I just wonder which method is used to do this. Is x simply distributed equally to C2 and C3 or does this happen according to the share of C2 or C3 in the sum of C2 and C3?
When I do that, I get the following for the remaining two criteria:
(C1-x) = New C1
(C2 + (C2 / (C2 + C3)) * x) = New C2
(C3 + (C3 / (C2 + C3)) * x) = New C3
Unfortunately, however, I do not know if this is correct. If I multiply the criteria with the corresponding values of alternative a1 and combine the whole thing to a final value, I can calculate the same again with the other alternatives. When I compare the graphs to see how big x has to be to change the final prioritization of the alternatives, I always get the wrong values compared to the online tool. Therefore I would like to know if the redistribution of the weights is correct.
I hope someone can help me despite the long question. Thanks a lot!

AI and Big Data have recently seen widespread application in virtually every field. With the economy's increasing digitization, it is expected that massive amounts of data will be generated at every node. I wonder if primary data based research in consumer behavior, economics, agricultural economics, and related fields will become obsolete in the future as more sophisticated models aided by AI and Big Data provide a more accurate picture of various phenomena. Please share your thoughts on what will be the role of researchers in applied economics, business, and marketing etc (not including those in the fields of computer science).

i don't quite understand what difference there is between the term business logic and business model. Are they used synonymously? I know of only one source that says a business model is a business logic when the supply, value creation, marketing and revenue are aligned from a theoretical perspective. Accordingly, one speaks of supply logic, value creation logic, marketing logic and revenue logic.
Is this correct?

I invite you to the discussion
Thank you very much
I am looking for resources that providing updated management tools and also innovation for business administration. Apart from academic journals, are there any interest sources to recommend?
I have often wondered if it is possible or recomended to teach business, management, marketing etc without practical experience of the subject. I have been a businessman for over 20 years, consultancy, transport, fiduciary and recruiting. I have had my ups and downs. I seen the positive and the negative and done things hands on. How ever if I look back at my former professors and lecturers I would say almost none of them had any experience and sometimes I felt in hindsight that they had no idea on how to connect theory and practice and to be critical. What are your thoughts?should hands on experience be mandatory in order to be allowed to teach a subject? I know this is a sensitive issue and be sure I ask this question with the greatest of respect. Are there ways of getting around the lack of experience? For me it seems difficult because a lecturer who has been in the game can provide another dimention compared to some one who never left academia. For me the difference is like playng football and watching football? Im sure there are great lecturers out there without experience of what they are teaching but what are your thoughts in general? Best regards Henrik
I hope you are all doing well. I have a question to all of you. I love to teach and so far I have been teaching everything from international business, marketing, management to organisational psychology. I feel ambivalent towards this however.I love to teach and Im curious in my nature and what better way to learn new things than to teach? However I also feel that if I continue being a generalist It might also be bad since I risk loosing touch with my main specialisation.
What are your thoughts? Your experiences?
My speciality is this :

Ps stay safe.
I am doing a Fractional Outcomes regression (Logit) for my thesis and can't find information on what assumptions the model makes. I suppose I would need to test those assumptions are met in my sample in order to be able to conduct the analysis. Furthermore, I wanted to know if there is any possibility of doing a robustness test on such a model.
Additionally, in a Fractional Outomes regression do my independent variables have to be between 0 and 1 as well?
Thank you very much,
I am organizing some materials for the MSc and PhD students and want to categorize the references in some dimensions so the students can choose by their own.
I think most scholars would agree that effectuation theory formulated by sarasvathy (2001) is still not a mature theory but when do you think it will reach its maturity? How would you compare the development of effectuation theory vs the development of bricolage?
I have co-authored a few articles into the subject: See below.
Usually in our field of Business Administration research journal takes months or years for publications. Any suggestions where, the Journal offers biannual publications?
Will there be any Corruption after Covid-crisis? Will it be major problem of economy? Can you suggest papers and publications about this topic?
Special Issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050): "Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Performance"

Special Issue Information
Businesses can play a crucial role in increasing sustainability and preventing the escalation of environmental and social problems. Through the analysis of how sustainable firm processes and activities positively affect society as a whole, and specifically firm performance, and by developing theory to inform practice through well-grounded guidelines for firms, scholars can help to raise awareness of the need to incorporate these sustainable practices.
Interest in and research into Corporate Social Responsibility have grown exponentially in the last two decades, and some meta-analytical studies (e.g., Orlitzky et al., 2003) have corroborated the positive effect of CSR on firms’ financial performance. Nevertheless, this topic still requires a deeper analysis and theoretical foundation. CSR practices contribute positively to society by supporting sustainable economic, social, and environmental development (Du et al., 2010). They also help to strengthen firms’ competitive advantage and performance (Carroll and Shabana, 2010; Lee and Park, 2009). Whether firms adopt CSR practices for instrumental or moral reasons is also a topic of debate, since they are based on contradictory foundations (Aguilera et al., 2007; Hahn et al., 2016), although both contribute to increasing corporate social performance (Hahn et al., 2016). Hahn et al. (2016) found that firms’ practices grounded in instrumental and in moral initiatives complement each other and increase the scale of corporate social performance. Deeper analysis of how CSR practices grounded in both rationales help firms to improve their corporate performance can be a way to raise firms’ awareness about sustainability.
Furthermore, firms must often rely on contradictory processes that underpin, for example, environmental requirements, as in the case of efficiency and flexibility (Lin and Ho, 2016; Boronat-Navarro and García-Joerger, 2019). The analysis of how firms develop holistic solutions for sustainability requires deeper study of firm resources and capabilities. Dynamic capabilities (Teece et al., 1997) can facilitate strategic change towards integration of sustainability and its effect on corporate performance (Wu et al., 2012), but this analysis requires further development. Exploration of different contexts such as family firms, or sectors like tourism or manufacturing companies could help toward a further understanding of this strategic change.
Additionally, customers’ perceptions of and intentions towards firms change according to the information they have about sustainable firms or their experiences with them (e.g., Boronat-Navarro and Pérez-Aranda, 2019, 2020). Studies demonstrating the positive effects on the perception of multiple stakeholders due to the authentic adoption of CSR practices (Wang et al., 2020) could also raise firms’ awareness of the importance of truly integrating these practices into their mission, culture and values, strategy, and operations. This analysis could shed light on the relationship between CSR and corporate performance.
Against this background, for this Special Issue, we invite submissions of academic papers analyzing how firms integrate and develop CSR practices that can contribute to corporate performance and to the sustainable progress of society. Both original research articles and review articles are welcome. The Special Issue focuses on but is not limited to the following topics:
- CRS and its effects on corporate performance;
- CSR and its effects on different measures of corporate performance;
- CSR and its impacts on society;
- Consistency and authenticity in the implementation of CSR practices;
- Theories explaining instrumental and moral initiatives in CSR practices;
- Resources and capabilities that help firms in the adoption of sustainable practices;
- Dynamic capabilities and sustainability;
- Innovations in the adoption of sustainable practices;
- Stakeholders’ influence on CSR adoption;
- Perceptions of various stakeholders of CSR practices;
- CSR in family firms;
- CSR and corporate performance in different sectors.

In fact, I always hope to be a research assistant, as this is the making of a person who can change something in this world.
I sent many emails to a number of professors, some of whom responded to me and some of them understood my request but did not contact me.
So, I hope that one of the researchers will contact me to work with him as a “research assistant,” and I specialize in two fields, psychology and business administration.
Thanks to those who reach out to me.
- Business Critical failure indicators CFI
Multinational organizations as well as SME or any type of business organization for that matter share the same principle which is succeed. However success is not usually the end result due to XXX factors either internal or external or else, they all have left the business opportunity to other competitors or any other reason of such.
Below is a small list i picked from the net about these companies that really got my attention because they all shared greatness in their days and completely got cast away afterwards:
Therefore, i would kindly solicit the help of anyone who thinks he has a close as possible answer (CFI's) that he/she could foresee before the their business ends up in a failure, what could be the possible way, approach or strategy that might help, and how to separate the right CFI from the wrong one.
Thank you in advance for your answers.
I'am looking for scientific journals with a Scopus classification in the field of business administration that are distinguished by being quick to respond and with reasonable restrictions.
Thanks in advance
