MREV – Call for Papers: What Makes a Job Good or Bad? Standards of Good Work Revisited

Special Issue

Standards of good work – in economics, law, sociology and industrial psychology – are rooted in ideas of protecting labour against exploitation and alienation. Certainly, these basic ideas have not lost their importance. However, organisations as socio-technological systems have radically changed during the last decades, which entails the need for revision of the implications formulated in the 1960s. The front against Taylorism and the bureaucratic phenomenon will prove fruitless in times of the flexible organisation and subsequently flexible women and men. E. g.:

  • Technical progress may result not only in a reduction of workload but also in a devaluation of human capital which is bounded to persons, relatives and communities. New sourcing strategies of enterprises for example via crowd and click work platforms will change the structure of relevant labour markets.
  • Labour law may foster the unintended effect of building up a non-core workforce which is excluded from regulations which protect regular employees. The questions of how protection can be organised elsewhere, and whether monetary instruments as an unconditional minimum wage are a good remedy are still debated intensely.
  • The additional margin for manoeuvre intended as a resource enabling coping in models of work-related stress has converted to a stressor itself in flexible organisations.
  • Changes of value orientations, which are out of the perspective of social research since decades, may result in altered individual demands and hence on answers to the question what makes a good job.
  • The same is true for the change in the structure of the workforce, for example concerning age, gender, generation and religious orientation, on the collective level.

This is not an exhaustive list.

The special issue welcomes empirical studies as well as theoretical papers.

Deadline
Full papers for this special issue of management revue – Socio-Economic Studies must be submitted by August 31st, 2018. All contributions will be subject to double-blind review. Papers invited to a “revise and resubmit” are due January 31th, 2019. The publication is scheduled for issue 3/2019. Please submit your papers electronically via the online submission system at http://www.mrev.nomos.de/ using “SI Standards of Good Work” as article section.

Submission Guidelines

University of Hamburg – School of Business: Recent developments in audit research and an approach to getting published

Institution: Universität Hamburg, Fakultät für Betriebswirtschaft

Course Instructor: Professor Nicole Ratzinger-Sakel (UHH)

Course Value: 2 SWS or 4 LP

Block course:
20 February, 2019 – 22 February, 2019,
Time: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Location: tba

Language of instruction: English

Application: Please send a current CV until January 12, 2019 to nicole.ratzingersakel@uni-hamburg.de.

Course Overview:
The main objectives of this PhD course include:

  • Introduce students to recent developments in audit research; hereby students will get
    knowledge about a selection of audit research papers recently published in highly ranked academic journals.
  • In addition, the course will enhance students’ ability to critically review the quality of research papers which is a meaningful element of the double-blind review process and extremely important for the quality of their own work. To do so, students will get an idea which “list” reviewers typically follow. Students are further expected to present and critically discuss papers that will be assigned to them.
  • Students will further get advices to getting their work published.
  • Finally, students should present their (first ideas of) own (audit) research ideas during the
    course.

Student evaluation: Presentation and critical discussion of assigned papers (papers will be
assigned to students after their application; each student is expected to present and critically
discuss one paper).

University of Hamburg – School of Business: Risk adjustment methods for quality of care outcomes with administrative data

Institution: Universität Hamburg, Hamburg Center for Health Economics

Course Instructors: Prof. Dr. Marco Caliendo / Prof. Dr. Tom Stargardt

Course Value: 5 ECTS

Block course:
24.09.2018: 9:00 am ‐ 12:30 pm / 01:30 pm ‐ 05:00 pm
25.09.2018: 9:00 am ‐ 12:30 pm / 01:30 pm ‐ 05:00 pm
26.09.2018: 9:00 am ‐ 12:30 pm / 01:30 pm ‐ 05:00 pm

Place: Universität Hamburg

Classroom: 4029, Esplanade 36

Language of instruction: English

Registration: Please contact  Elena Phillips, elena.phillips@wiso.uni-hamburg.de (first come, first-served)

Course Overview:
The course will cover methods for drawing causal inference in interventional, non‐
experimental/non‐randomized studies on quality of care with administrative data. In order to control for confounders between intervention and control group, at first simple methods (such as stratification and standardization) as well as advanced methods (Propensity Score Matching, Difference‐in‐Differences, Regression‐Discontinuity Designs) are taught. The course will also give an overview on common risk‐adjustment instruments (generic and disease specific risk‐adjustment scores based on diagnoses or ATC codes) for use with health outcomes.

The course will be split in theoretical and practical sessions. During the practical sessions we are going to implement the discussed estimators with STATA. Hence, a basic knowledge of STATA (data handling, running do‐files, etc.) is a prerequisite for the course. If you are not familiar with STATA you might want to check the online introduction from the UCLA Institute for Digital Research and Education https://stats.idre.ucla.edu/stata/. The relevant estimation commands and ado‐files will be explained during the course; some of them require STATA 13 or higher.

Assessment: Students will have to complete an assignment doing (statistical) analyses of a dataset. Results have to be presented in the form of a short summary paper.

University of Hamburg – School of Business: Behavioral & Experimental Economics

Institution: Universität Hamburg, Fakultät für Betriebswirtschaft

Course Instructors: Prof. Dr. Markus Nöth and Prof. Dr. Guido Voigt (both UHH)

Course Value: 2 SWS/4 LP

Date: The course takes place on four Fridays in the summer term 2018: 6.4. / 20.4. / 18.5. / 6.7., 10-12.30h and 13.30-16h

Place: Universität Hamburg

Room: tba

Language of instruction: English

Registration: Please contact stefanie.nonnsen@uni-hamburg.de (first come, first-served)

Course Overview & Contents:
The course discusses the basic steps of performing behavioral research. We start with discussing critical assumptions of game theoretic models. We then show how research hypotheses can be inferred from behavioral models and how these hypotheses may be tested in lab studies. Critical design factors of laboratory experiments and the most commonly applied statistical tests will be presented.
We will further visit the Lab at the UHH while discussing options (e.g. eye-tracking) and limits
(e.g. subject pool, size of the lab) for conducting lab experiments at UHH. The course also provides an overview of commonly applied software tools that are used for behavioral modelling (Maple), software for computerized experiments (z-Tree), and statistical analysis (Stata). Ethical aspects of conducting laboratory experiments underpin the theoretical/fundamental part of this course.
Based on these theoretical foundations, participants are asked to design an experiment. The
presentations will be the basis for passing/failing the course. The topic of the experiment is
open. We may also suggest a topic. If this is the case, please send your research interest along
with the registration.

Prerequisites: Basic background in microeconomics, game theory and statistics.

Assessment: Assessment will be based on active participation. Grading for students
of University of Hamburg will be pass/fail.
