The moderating roles of academic age and institutional sector on the relationship between co-authorship network centrality and academic research performance: The case of chemistry faculty members in Pakistan. (2014)

Authors: Hite, Julie ; Badar, Kamal; Badir, Yousre

Publication Type: Journal Article, Academic Journal

Abstract: click to view

We investigate the association of co-authorship network centrality (degree, closeness and betweeness) and the academic research performance of chemistry researchers in Pakistan. Building on Badar, Hite & Badir et al. (2012), which found positive associations of network centrality on research performance and a moderating relationship of gender on the relationship between network centrality with research performance for female authors, we focused on how the network may influence research performance for two additional potentially disadvantaged groups by examining the moderating role of academic age and institutional sector on the relationship between network centrality and research performance of chemistry faculty in Pakistan. OLS-regression findings indicate a positive relationship between degree centrality on and research performance, and a positive moderating relationship for both academic age and institutional sector on the relationship between degree centrality and research performance for junior faculty members and faculty members employed in private sector universities/research institutes.

Examining the relationship of co-authorship network centrality and gender on academic research performance: The case of chemistry researchers in Pakistan (2013)

Abstract: click to view

This research examines the association of co-authorship network centrality (degree, closeness and betweeness) and the academic research performance of chemistry researchers in Pakistan. Higher centrality in the co-authorship network is hypothesized to be positively related to performance, in terms of academic publication, with gender having a positive moderating effect for female researchers. Using social network analysis, this study examines the bibliometric data (2002–2009) from ISI Web of Science for the co-authorship network of 2,027 Pakistani authors publishing in the field of Chemistry. A non-temporal analysis using node-level regression reports positive impact of degree and closeness and negative impact of betweeness centrality on research performance. Temporal analysis using node-level regression (time 1: 2002–2005; time 2: 2006–2009) confirms the direction of causality and demonstrates the positive association of degree and closeness centrality on research performance. Findings indicate a moderating role of gender on the relationship of both degree and closeness centrality with research performance for Pakistani female authors.

Preservice Teacher Preparation in International Contexts: A Case-Study Examination of the International Student Teacher Programs (2010)

Authors: Jacob, W. James; Swensen, Deborah; Hite, Julie; Erickson, Lynnette Bloom; Tuttle, Marie

Publication Type: Journal Article, Academic Journal

Volume: 1

Issue: 1 & 2

Page Numbers: 1-11

Abstract: click to view

This article examines the teacher preparation experiences of preservice teachers in six international contexts: China, Fiji, Kiribati, Mexico, Samoa, and Tonga. More specifically, it looks at the value-added components in an international teacher education program, with an emphasis on effective teaching and employability. Theoretically the study is based on Straus and Corbin’s (1998a) substantive grounded theory and Patton’s (1997) Theory of Action Framework. Verbal and non-verbal forms of feedback were identified as essential aspects of the international preservice training experience. Cultural diversity, teaching English as a second language, collaboration, and exposure to a different educational system were identified among several components as advantages to individuals who conduct their preservice teacher training in international settings.

The role of dyadic multi-dimensionality in the evolution of strategic network ties (2008)

Authors: Hite, Julie

Publication Type: Book, Chapter/ Section in Scholarly Book

Publisher: JAI/Elsevier

Country: UK

Page Numbers: 133-170

Editors: J. A. C. Baum & T. J. Rowley

Abstract: click to view

Dyadic multi-dimensionality informs the variation that exists within and between network ties and suggests that ties are not all the same and not all equally strategic. This chapter presents a model of dyadic evolution grounded in dyadic multi-dimensionality and framed within actor-level, dyadic-level, endogenous and exogenous contexts. These contexts generate both strategic catalysts that motivate network action and bounded agency that may constrain such network action. Assuming the need to navigate within bounded agency, the model highlights three strategic processes that demonstrate how dyadic multi-dimensionality underlies the evolution of strategic network ties.

Geographic space and social space: A statistical analysis of Euclidean, actual, and least-cost distance and network ties of head teachers in Uganda (2007)

Abstract: click to view

Using geographic and social network data collected in the field, this study explores the statistical characteristics of three distance measures (Euclidean, Actual, and Least-Cost) relative to their use in the social setting of dyadic ties in a network of secondary school headteachers (n=69) in Mukono Uganda. While the mathematical distinction between these three measures is self-evident, their potential for differential use in statistical analysis is the focus of this study. Thus, the study explores four questions regarding the three distance measures: 1- are they statistically related (using Pearson correlation and Cronbach?s Alpha), 2- are they statistically non-equivalent (using ANOVA and Student-Newman-Keuls), 3- for each distance measure, are the mean distances between network ties and non-ties statistically different (using t-tests), and 4- are they different in predicting ?frequent interaction? network ties (using Logistic regression and Receiver Operating Characteristic curve analysis)?

Abstract: click to view

Since the government of Uganda introduced HIV/AIDS prevention campaigns on a national level in 1986, and established the AIDS Control Programme in 1987 (Okware, Opio, Musinguzi, & Waibale, 2001), direct and open strategies have been employed in Uganda to achieve the successful curbing of the HIV/AIDS epidemic within this East African nation (UNAIDS, 1995). Both formal and nonformal education programs have clearly and intentionally been one of the main vehicles for accomplishing critical HIV/AIDS prevention strategies (Jacob, Moriskey, Hite, & Nsubuga, In Press; Mirembe, 2002). Working in concert with formal educational programs, private and community-based organizations (CBO) have also worked tirelessly with the goal of HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. Of these organizations, the Uganda Youth Anti-AIDS Association (UYAAS) represents a model program that has contributed in many significant ways toward HIV/AIDS prevention. The purpose of this chapter is to describe the vision, structure, strategies, and successes of the Uganda Youth Anti-AIDS Association (UYAAS) and then to explore and explain possible reasons for their success and to generate potential implications for other HIV/AIDS prevention programs both in Uganda as well as in other affected nations.

Evolutionary processes and paths of relationally embedded network ties in emerging entrepreneurial firms (2005)

Authors: Hite, Julie

Publication Type: Journal Article, Academic Journal

Volume: 29

Issue: 1

Page Numbers: 113-144

Abstract: click to view

Relationally embedded network ties influence the economic decisions of emerging firms and evolve over time. Evolutionary processes and paths of these ties are examined based on two research questions: How do components of social relationships facilitate the evolution of relational embeddedness? What are the different paths to relational embeddedness? Findings from qualitative case study methods suggest three evolutionary processes (network entry, social component leverage and trust facilitation), four evolutionary paths, and the conclusion that ties entering the network through personal relationship may evolve more quickly toward full embeddedness. Strategic implications for emerging firms are suggested regarding entrepreneurial opportunity recognition, resource acquisition and effective governance of relationally embedded ties.

Multiple networks of public school administrators: An analysis of network content and structure (2005)

Authors: Hite, Julie; Williams, Ellen J; Baugh, Steven Clare

Publication Type: Journal Article, Academic Journal

Volume: 8

Issue: 2

Page Numbers: 91-122

Abstract: click to view

This study examines a public school administrator network from a qualitative paradigm using network theory and methods. Findings identify and describe four distinct networks emerging from administrators’ relationships: the innovation network, the resource network, the social/ emotional support network, and the university–school partnership network. Findings suggest that educational leaders do not have just one network, but rather use multiple networks to achieve their organizational objectives. Strategic implications of the structure of these networks and an educational leader’s position within these networks are discussed.

Assessing impact of leadership preparation programs: An analysis of the effects of student cohorts and administrative internships administrator network development (2005)

Authors: Hite, Julie; Matthews, L Joseph

Publication Type: Journal Article, Academic Journal

Volume: 6

Issue: 1

Page Numbers: 14-25

Abstract: click to view

Leadership preparation programs, increasingly needing to demonstrate value, are well positioned to positively influence the development of candidates? administrative networks as a result of both student cohort and internship experiences. Social network theory and methods were used to conduct an initial assessment of the effects of both student cohorts and internship experiences on the development of candidates? administrative networks. As expected, the combination of student cohorts and internship experiences had a greater network effect than either component alone. First, the combination increased both the size and density of their direct administrative networks. Second, the combination increased the density of the overall network, thus increasing their overall centrality and potential reach within the administrative network. This study, which lays the foundation for the investigation of the continuing effects of preparation programs, suggests that the combination of student cohorts and internship experiences provides a critical source of future value for candidates.

'One should not forget One's mother tongue'--A qualitative analysis of parental choice of language-of-instruction among Russian speaking families in Estonia (2004)

Authors: Kemppainen, Raija Marketta; Ferrin, Scott Ellis; Ward, Carol J; Hite, Julie

Publication Type: Journal Article, Academic Journal

Volume: 28

Issue: 2

Page Numbers: 207-228

Abstract: click to view

Estonia provides an excellent laboratory for investigating language-of-instruction because the Russian-speaking language minority has options of education in the first language, bilingual programs, and education in the second language. The research presented here attempts to identify factors affecting parental choice of school language among Russian-speaking families in Estonia. Fifteen families were interviewed in three Estonian towns in the fall of 2001. The interviewed parents differed in their attitudes toward Russian and Estonian culture and language. The results of this study suggest that parents? choice of language-of-instruction is related to culture and language attitudes, among other factors.

Patterns of multidimensionality in embedded network ties: A typology of relational embeddedness in emerging entrepreneurial firms (2003)

Authors: Hite, Julie

Publication Type: Journal Article, Academic Journal

Volume: 1

Issue: 1

Page Numbers: 11-52

Abstract: click to view

Assuming heterogeneity among relationally-embedded ties, this study focuses on classification of relationally-embedded ties. Network ties embedded within social relationships influence economic actions and represent a strategic form of organizing for emerging entrepreneurial firms. Research questions include the following: (1) What are the components of the social relationships of relationally-embedded ties? (2) How can relationally-embedded network ties be classified to identify different types of embeddedness based on variations in the social relationships? (3) What strategic implications can be drawn from a multidimensional view of relational embeddedness? This study uses case study methods to examine external network ties of eight emerging firms in the computer industry. A classification typology of seven types of relational-embeddedness emerge based upon combinations of three overarching social components--personal relationship, dyadic economic interaction, and social capital. The typology suggests multidimensionality of both embeddedness type and intensity. Propositions address strategic outcomes of heterogeneity within relational embeddedness.

The evolution of firm networks: From emergence to early groth of the firm (2001)

Authors: Hite, Julie; Hesterly, William

Publication Type: Journal Article, Academic Journal

Volume: 22

Issue: 3

Page Numbers: 275-286

Abstract: click to view

This paper addresses whether cohesive networks of socially embedded ties or sparse networks rich in structural holes are more conducive to the success of new firms. We propose that the networks of emerging firms evolve in order to adapt to the firm?s changing resource needs and resource challenges. As firms emerge, their networks consist primarily of socially-embedded ties drawn from dense, cohesive sets of connections. We label these networks identity-based. As firms move into the early growth stage, their networks evolve toward more ties based on a calculation of economic costs and benefits. This shift from identity-based to more calculative networks is manifested in the evolution of the firm networks: (1) from primarily socially-embedded ties to a balance of embedded and arms-length relations; (2) from networks that emphasize cohesion to those that exploit structural holes; and, (3) from a more path-dependent to a more intentionally-managed network. Thus, this paper suggests that both cohesive and sparse networks are conducive to firm performance when they are aligned with and address firms? evolving resource challenges.
