Accountancy stereotypes add up to stable profession

The media is littered with celebrity trainers, bakers, nutritionists, even gardeners. But, one profession is always missing from the roster – the celebrity accountant. The reason is most likely due to the negative stereotypes propagated for centuries. However, this is no bad thing, according to researchers in Australia who suggest in the International Journal of Critical Accounting, that stock characters entrenched in popular culture provide professional stability.

Frances Miley of the University of New South Wales and Andrew Read of the University of Canberra, Australia, point out that recruitment advertising by the professional accounting bodies often portrays the jobs on offer as befitting an “ambitious person who seeks an exciting and rewarding career”. In stark contrast, the stereotype of the ideal accountant is one of a dull and boring person focused only on counting the beans and having a keen eye for detail but few social skills. “These views seem to be at opposite ends of the spectrum,” the team reports. Research into career choices suggests that most would-be accounts see the substantial financial rewards expected of this career as being attractive and that students often believe the stereotype to be accurate.

The researchers have investigated the role of stereotypes in “commedia dell’arte“, a form of improvisational theatre developed in 15th century Italy. This performance art form exploits stock characters based on the common stereotypes of the day. And, the team suggests, serves a useful purpose through the encoded information of the stereotypes portrayed.

The team contend that, “if the recruitment advertising by the accounting profession is successful in changing the stereotype of the accountant that has long been entrenched in popular culture, instead of being beneficial to the accounting profession, it would be deleterious. Hence, there is benefit in the accounting profession trying to maintain the stereotype.” The team concludes that there is also something sinister about the retention of stereotypes and how it would not serve the profession for anyone to attempt to change that stereotype, which would most likely prove impossible regardless. They suggest that, “Although a constructed and mythical view of the accountant, the stereotype allows the accounting profession to maintain its exclusivity and accountants to hide their power.”

Automated breast cancer detection


Breast cancer is one of the most common forms of malignancy in women. Dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) is used to scan the breast for lesions in suspected cases that may not be visible on a standard mammogram but where symptoms or evidence of breast cancer have presented. Now, researchers in India have developed an algorithm that can quickly analyse a rendered 3D structure of a lesion of interest revealed by the MRI and determine accurately whether or not the affected tissue is malignant or benign. Such technology could reduce the need for surgical biopsy removal for laboratory testing and so improve outcomes for patients and avoid unnecessary treatment. The algorithm utilises the high-end parallel computing power of a graphical processing unit (GPU), the NVIDIA CUDA technology.

The common search for truth


An important fundamental concept in game theory is “common knowledge”, the information “everyone” knows about. Of course, it is this common knowledge that helps us pick and choose what keywords and phrases we use to search for uncommon knowledge on the Internet. Unfortunately, the context of such common knowledge is not available to the search engines nor the algorithms they use to sell advertising. Now, researchers in Lithuania have investigated whether or not there is correlation between common knowledge variables and search engine marketing elements. They have demonstrated that a “lose-lose” situation currently exists in the advertising keyword market, where common knowledge is all but ignored and instead advertisers simply buy click-throughs where instead of a term describing a product and so homing in on what consumers might actually want to buy, they simply insert the query term into the search and so many spurious results are generated too. The team has discovered statistical relationships between the rules and techniques of advertisement performance, keyword quality score and website experience and that might be used to optimise a campaign based on game theory and convert a lose-lose situation into a win-win.

Recycling gender alignment


Product design is often about efficiencies, lean manufacturing and profit margins, rarely are customer requirements the primary concern of commercial concerns. But, researchers in Taiwan argue that customer requirements should be high on the agenda and can be integrated into product design to benefit consumer and company alike. They explain the concept with regards to the integrated design of a new type of bicycle that factors into the design gender differences between users in a novel way. The customer requirements versus quality function deployment show that there are three main factors that users would consider: The most critical factor emphasised by both male and female respondents was safety. Female respondents placed greater emphasis on recyclability and packaging than on overall colour. Among the engineering characteristics, both male and female respondents felt that recyclability was more important than other factors related to packaging. “The results of this study could strengthen product development within manufacturing industries and increase overall product competitiveness and enterprise market share,” the team concludes.

The real Chinese Internet


Recent legislation in China imposed on internet service providers (ISPs) not only obliges them to protect online personal information and privacy but forces them to collect their clients’ true identity. As with much online privacy legislation across the globe, ostentatiously such requirements are put in place to protect a nation’s citizens, from terrorism and criminality, for instance. But, in the “post-Snowden” era, most users are well aware that privacy is only a virtual, diffuse, concept. The enforcement of ‘real-name registration’ in China would seem to represent an addition to China’s pre-existing legal framework and enforcement mechanism for internet content regulation that might well stifle freedom of speech still further. Zhixiong Liao of the Faculty of Law, at the University of Waikato, New Zealand, suggests the new law is an example of “one stone, two birds”. It is he says a way to protect online personal information and privacy but also has a ” disguised” purpose of providing the authorities with “a more effective way for the enforcement of the internet censorship laws and regulations.”

Call for papers: "Soft Computational Approaches for Risk Exploration in Global Software Development"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Innovative Computing and Applications.

Global software development (GSD) gained momentum as a widely accepted practice in the software industry. The companies shifting to GSD paradigm are gaining various benefits: reduced cost, time, better development of software products etc. Consequently, GSD projects have facing a variety of risks such as those induced by the spatial and temporal distance between development teams. There is also a need for identifying the factors which may generate the risks in global software development processes: process planning, requirements engineering, design, development, software project management, distributed work force, product integration, and testing. Furthermore, significant research is required to elaborate the risk factors which affect project performance, product quality and project outcome in global software development projects.
 
The aim of this special issue is to facilitate a forum to enable a wide variety of researchers to exploit state of the art research in the field of soft computational (SC) approaches in relation to global software development risks, issues and challenges.

Call for papers: "Design Science as a Research Methodology for Organisational Design and Engineering"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Organisational Design and Engineering.

Design Science Research (DSR) which finds its origins in the work of Herbert A. Simon (1969) has now become well-established within the IS/IT research community (Rossi et al., 2013). More recently, Hevner and Chatterjee (2010:5) have defined DSR as: “[…] a research paradigm in which a designer answers questions relevant to human problems via the creation of innovative artifacts, thereby contributing new knowledge to the body of scientific evidence. The designed artifacts are both useful and fundamental in understanding the problem.”
 
The initial DSR contributions to the IS/IT field were published in the 1980s and in the early 1990s (Weber, 1987; Nunamaker et al., 1991; Walls, 1992; March and Smith, 1995). As noted by Hevner et al. (2004), during this inception phase, DSR often was on the ‘fringe’ of the IS/IT mainstream research more typically rooted in the behavioural science paradigm.
 
However, from the mid-1990s, DSR has progressively acquired an academic legitimacy and was gradually recognised, no longer as a competing approach, but rather, as complementary to the IS/IT field’s behavioural science mainstream (Hevner et al., 2004; Hevner and Chatterjee, 2010). Over the past fifteen years, there has been a significant rise in the number of published work rooted in DSR. Whether theoretical or empirical, these contributions have been disseminated in prominent workshops, conferences, books and refereed journals; including high impact factor IS/IT journals (Kuechler and Vaishnavi, 2008).
 
Among these contributions, some have focused on the presentation of conceptual frameworks for DSR (Hevner et al., 2004), addressed epistemological issues (Niehaves, 2007; Iivari 2007; Purao, 2013), explored methodological aspects (Peffers and al., 2007; Baskerville, 2008; Sein et al., 2011; Iivari, 2015), proposed broad types of outputs and artefacts produced (March and Smith, 1995; MacKay et al., 2012), focused on the anatomy of design theory (Gregor and Jones, 2007; Kuechler and Vaishnavi, 2008) or guidelines for executing and evaluating DSR outputs (Hevner et al.,2004; Hevner and Chatterjee, 2010; Gregor and Hevner, 2013).
 
This body of work has contributed to the establishment of the central and common threads in the IS/IT field and constitute the foundations to relevant and rigorous DSR practice. As emphasised by Rossi et al. (2013), DSR has now become part of the mainstream, that is, it has become assimilated to “normal science” in IS/IT.
 
Even though a tremendous amount of work has been accomplished in DSR as a research field in IS/IT, a host of questions have remained unanswered. Specifically, some of these include: the ontological nature and epistemological foundations of DSR, the types of research contributions deemed possible in DSR, the methodological foundation of DSR, the creation of knowledge in DSR, and the range of possible practices in various application fields using of DSR.
 
This special issue is devoted to research aimed at understanding the implications of the DSR both as a topic for investigation and as a method of investigation (methodology) or paradigm in IS/IT (Kuechler and Waishnavi, 2008) with implications for organisational design and engineering.
 
We welcome contributions which address IS/IT organisational design issues from a design science perspective, whether conceptual, theoretical or empirical. Contributions to this IJODE special issue may take a range of forms (e.g., case studies, action-research, intervention-research, grounded theory, statistical analysis, pedagogical approaches, and simulation studies), may focus on different units and levels of analysis, and may employ quantitative, qualitative, or mixed research approaches.
 
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • The ontological and epistemological nature of DSR. What DSR is and what DSR is not? What are application fields? Is DSR a research method, a research methodology or a research paradigm?
  • What form should contributions of DSR take? In particular, this question concerns the nature of artefacts which could be developed and evaluated, and regarding the place of theory. Some questions include: What is an artefact? Are they reducible to concepts/constructs, models, methods, or instantiations? What is a 'viable' artefact in a research? Should the research necessarily produce new theoretical proposition or simply delve within the existing stock of theoretical constructs, propositions, and theories?
  • DSR methodological process and distinctive characteristics. What are the common bases and differences with other types of methodological research, such as action-research or research-intervention? What is the place of the evaluation process in DSR? What are the methods or techniques appropriate in the evaluation of DSR?
  • Knowledge creation in DSR. What are the knowledge creation process and mechanisms in DSR? What types of knowledge are created in DSR? What are the distinctive DSR practices? What competences should researchers have in DSR? How can DSR favour, enhance, and support creativity? How is it possible to collaborate in DSR?
  • DSR in organisation design and engineering. How is the dominant organisation design paradigm affected by DSR? How much "design" is there in current conceptions of organisation design? Can DSR serve as the much needed bridge between organisation design and organisation engineering?
  • Other DSR application fields. What are possible application fields in DSR? Do these fields cover the same territories and cross the same boundaries in IS/IT research as is found in the behavioural science paradigm?

Paying off your student loan

Would-be participants of higher education must be given full and transparent advice before they accumulate debts as students that follow them into the workplace, according to a report published in the International Journal of Pluralism and Economics Education.

Deborah Figart of the School of Education, at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in Galloway, says that there is a dearth of pre-loan and post-loan counseling for undergraduate students using student loans to help finance their higher education. She has devised an assignment that can be adapted to a wide range of courses to help educate students about debt before it becomes a serious problem that can stay with them for life.

“The average student loan debt for a US graduate of the Class of 2013 was $28400, according to the Project on Student Debt,” reports Figart, “Each month, young adults are burdened with 25 to 30 percent or more of their net pay dedicated to student loan debt.” Anecdotes about telling horror stories of alumni with tens of thousands of dollars in interest-accruing debt earning minimal wages. Law graduates precluded from obtaining a license to practice despite passing the necessary bar exams because of a bad credit record, restaurant school graduates hoping to become chefs but earning a fraction of their debt peeling potatoes.

Most worryingly, Figart adds that the average student has around 8 to 10 loans and the total student debt far outweighs the nation’s total credit card bills. Figart has taught financial and economic literacy to students and teachers, covering subjects related to budgeting and consumer debt. And, while some states oblige courses to include a component related to budgeting and finance, too many students are “falling through the cracks”, she adds. She points out that the federal “Know Before You Owe Private Student Loan Act” does not go far enough in several ways and so also fails to protect students from debt.

Figart urges that students must be counseled in such topics as loan repayment options, average salaries for a wide range of jobs, suggested debt-to-income ratios, and the likely consequences of defaulting on loan repayments. “In an economy where job security and job quality are increasingly elusive, students pursue higher education as an investment, not simply a means of personal fulfillment,” she adds. While financial counseling may dash the dreams of some or at least postpone those dreams, it could nevertheless save thousands of students from a fate worse than debt.

Call for papers: "3D Measurement and Modelling Methods for Creating Anthropometric Digital Human Models"

For a special issue of International Journal of the Digital Human.

Recent advances in digital technology have made it easy to digitize the surface of a human body into 3D geometrical data. New anthropometric measurement methods have made it even easier to collect and archive that data, as well as to improve the precision of the data. Consequently, many of the measurement tasks conducted on the human body are now supported by computational methods, which are used to improve the resulting anthropometric digital human models.
 
Therefore, although scanning methods are continuously being enhanced, it is also important to improve the associated computational methods to improve the resulting anthropometric digital human models and, in particular, to gain novel perspectives for new uses of the 3D body data. These new uses generate new requirements for the 3D scanning methods and, in turn, establish functional roles as scientific tools for the anthropometric measurement methods.
 
This special issue will present the latest research on methods for measuring and modelling 3D body surface data. As a result, the issue will describe state-of-the-art methods for gathering, processing and analysing 3D body shape data. Researchers are cordially invited to submit their original work on 3D body scanning methods, 3D anthropometric measurement methods and new uses of the 3D body data, such as biomechanics or other new uses of the 3D body data which are related to this special issue.
 
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • 3D surface scanning methods: lasers, structured lights, IR transducers
  • 3D surface scanning methods for a body in motion
  • Data processing pipelines which improve throughput
  • Automatic landmark identification and dimension extraction methods
  • Statistical methods for analysing 3D body shape data
  • 3D modelling methods
  • Biomechanical analysis methods
  • 3D body data management methods
  • Interdisciplinary studies and new applications for 3D body data
  • High-level and semantic descriptors derived from 3D body data
