  2. Northern Collaboration Learning Exchange on Embedding Open Access

    Stone, Graham; Awre, Chris; Stainthorp, Paul; Jones, Bev; Beeken, Andrew; Woolley, Nick; Cole, Ellen; Boll, Amanda; Tripp, Louise; McCutcheon, Valerie; Dobson, Helen; Foulds, Freddie; Ewington, Heather; Sheppard, Nick; Bower, Kirsty; Westerbeek, Rachel
    There has been much preparation over the past couple of years to put in place processes to enable compliance with the HEFCE REF Open Access policy that came into force on 1st April 2016. This preparation was itself building on, in many cases, a number of years of Open Access advocacy. Open Access is now better established than it has ever been, particularly within libraries. The further embedding of Open Access within our institutions remains, though, an ongoing task. At this Learning Exchange, those institutions within the Northern Collaboration that have participated in the Jisc Open Access Pathfinder projects over...

  3. Video game subcultures: Playing at the periphery of mainstream culture

    Ruffino, Paolo; Carbone, Marco Benoit
    This issue of GAME Journal offers an overview and a series of case studies on video games from the point of view of subcultural theory. There has been little work in game studies from this perspective, which offers a theoretical frame for the ever growing complexity of the audiences involved with the medium of the video game. The study of subcultures on the other hand has a long standing and complex tradition which culminates in what has been recently defined as the “post-subcultural” theoretical scenario.

  5. Cost of capital of stakeholders’ WACC [working paper]

    Lakshmi, Geeta; Khan, Muhammad; Vortelinos, Dimitrios
    In this paper, we introduce a framework for calculating the Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) for stakeholders of a firm. Our framework is built upon the traditional WACC i.e. the weighted average of returns to shareholders and lenders, but extends the framework to incorporate the triple bottom line i.e. the planet, the people along with the notion of profit.

  9. Medical professionalism undermined in armed conflicts [Response to: Doctors in Syria are forced to treat patients in secret, charity says]

    Ahmadi, Keivan; Cheah, C H; Soyiri, Ireneous N
    The medical professionalism is grossly undermined in the current situation in Syria.Cruess et al. described medical professionalism as an idea to be sustained (1) and this cannot be achieved unless there are structural supports available and functional. Creating long list of attributes on medical education and professionalism alone (2) would not do any better in real health work environment or in extra-ordinary situations. Syria is not the first state violating the code of ethics in the medical field and may not be the last. Almost a year ago the World Medical Association (WMA) issued a resolution on Bahrain (3), demanding...

  13. Why our universities should be protected: the activist and student fees

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    My own alma mater lies thousands of miles away and is currently caught in the throes of celebration after winning an intensive campaign against the suppression of human rights and house arrest. It is also the alma mater of Aung San Suu Kyi , the Burmese Nobel Peace Prize winner pro activist who has been fighting for democracy and who was placed under house arrest for the last 15 years. Our educational experiences were separated by over a decade and half yawning between us yet there is comfort in the fact that the classrooms of my university might have fostered...

  14. The etymology of sovereign crises and the random walk

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    The last decade, it appears, has spawned a new generation of sovereign crises called the liquidity crises (for example in India, Asian Tigers, Russia and Turkey). These are quite different from debt crisis (such as those in Mexico, Indonesia and Sub Saharan Africa), where repayment is impossible or near impossible. Unlike the chronic problems beset by debt crises, liquidity crises are maladies which can affect the rich and the comparatively well-heeled. They are characterised, as the name suggests, by lack of cash and can strike quite suddenly but are often cured by simple injections of cash given by a global...

  15. Islands in the stream: why mutual cooperation is necessary in the Irish sovereign crisis

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    Countries like companies are going bust these days. The global system is so intertwined that systemic shocks affect countries like ninepins. Some time ago it was specific risks and debt mismanagement which afflicted countries but currently it is systemic risk which has taken precedent. Like the oil shock of the seventies, it is now the banks that have become the new grenade which is exploding in the front rooms of European countries like Ireland.

  16. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak: a wildebeest in the making?

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    Last week, Ireland’s attempts to burden itself with further cuts did not impress and the markets remain inured to the self-inflicted fiscal measures. Over the weekend, Ireland has been granted a reprieve with a bailout of $89 billion jointly administered by the European Commission, Bilateral Aid and the International Monetary Fund. On Sunday evening, the global politicians held their breath to watch the reaction to this bailout as they waited first for the Asian markets to react and subsequently the European markets. The reception has been warm but time will tell whether enough has been done.

  17. Diversify, diversify and diversify: the renaissance of UK industry

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    Yesterday, the debutante bail-out bond for the Euro-zone was hailed as a hit for the fashion parade that might follow. Japan’s interest of 20% in the bond signals that the rest of the world might have hope for the future of Europe. Where does the UK stand in all this? The yield of the bail-out bond is currently lower than the yield of the UK bond. This signals the relatively higher trust the market has in the bail-out nations rather than in the UK. We have learnt that the financial world are fickle stewards and are perfect examples of the problems...

  18. Contagion, cooperation and sovereign debt: the Greek crisis

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    Sovereign debt is not a zero sum game: everyone takes on the pain. The question is how much more the Greeks are prepared to take in the form of austerity measures. As the country is perched on the precipice of default, it is looking at offers to stave off default. All of them come with conditions of shared pain. Greece might prefer to default and write off some of the debt as any further offer would come with additional debt service obligation, but any rollover would be accompanied by more promises of stringent public spending. On the other hand, it...
