Teaching & Research Forum / Re: Status of DIU in SCOPUS

No, it is not.

You can check this link for the list of scopus indexed journals. In Bangladesh, very few (3 or 4) journals are indexed in scopus.

Elsevier and Springer publishers provide web based software to find suitable journal based on title and abstract. Links are below

I have attached my paper titled " To Use or Not to Use: Modelling End User Grumbling Behavior as User Resistance in Pre-Implementation Stage of Enterprise Resource Planning System"has been published in Journal: Information Systems. ISI Impact factor: 1.832. Publisher: Elsevier. Indexed: SCI,SCIE, Scopus.

Paper is attached. Structural Equation Modeling (PLS) used for analysis, Marker variable was used to control CMV. This paper is focused on the area of HR, Project management and management information system.

Dear Anam sir, in that paper though our DV is Actual Use, but we need to run 3 regression if you use spss for my model. In SEM-PLS, you can run all the three regression together.  The name of IV and DV is nowadays changed to exogenous (where arrows are going out) and endogenous (where arrows are coming in) variables. When no arrows are going out from any variable, then that is our DV.

Dear Anam sir,

Please see my paper, two IV (H5 and H6) to 1 DV and also 5 IV  (H2, H4, H7, H8,H9)to 1 DV.

Teaching & Research Forum / Likert Scale: 5, 7 ,9 or 11 point
« on: March 30, 2017, 09:34:13 PM »
Research suggests that scale labels and scale points impact the statistical characteristics of response data and emphasize the importance of labeling all scale points. A scale with all points labeled effectively minimizes response bias, maximizes variance, maximizes power, and minimizes error. The results also suggest that variance may be maximized when the scale length is set at 7 points. Although researchers commonly believe using additional scale points will increase variance, results indicate increasing scale points beyond 7 does not increase variance. Taken together, a fully labeled, 7-point scale may provide the greatest benefits to researchers.

See the attached paper

if you want to identify real world phenomena, qualitative research (inductive approach) is needed. For quantitative research, we test impact of some variables on another variable. All variables must come from some theories. Theoretical contribution is a major part in academic research (not always in industry research). Theory is a standardized principle on which basis we can explain the relationship of some variables(e.g. Hypothesis). 


Teaching & Research Forum / Using tenses in scientific writing

Tense considerations for science writing. This document was prepared by The University of Melbourne. Please see the attached.

This is actually for consumer research

Problem 1: the reviewers cannot tell what conversation your paper is joining
Problem 2: the conversation that your paper is joining does not belong in the journal
Problem 3: the paper reviews the conversation without identifying any major gaps, problems or questions
Problem 4: you do not have the data to answer your research questions
Problem 5: your findings are too descriptive and you have not made theoretical claims
Problem 6: your theoretical claims state how things are, but not why things are the way they are
Problem 7: your theoretical claims are illustrated by vivid data, but not supported by theoretical argumentation
Problem 8: your paper does not make a significant contribution to the conversation

1) Clearly indicate which theoretical conversation your paper is joining. Do so as early as possible in the paper.
(2) Join a theoretical conversation that belongs in your target journal. Alternatively, target a journal that cares about the conversation that you are joining.
(3) Conclude your review of the theoretical conversation with gaps,problems and ideally specific research questions that your study will address.
(4) Collect the data that you need to answer your research questions. Alternatively, only
ask research questions that your data can answer.
(5) Build your descriptive observations about contexts into theoretical claims about concepts.
(6) Explain both how things are and why things are the way that they are.
(7) Illustrate your theoretical claims with data and support them with theoretical argumentation.
(8) Advance the theoretical conversation in a novel and radical way.In other words,offer readers something “new” and “big”
