Ориентация потребителя на здоровое питание: обзор литературы и разработка модели согласования интересов участников рынка
Consumer orientation towards healthy foods depends on the coordination of companies, public policies area and the consumer’s ability to make choices. At the same time, consumer orientation depends not only on consumer awareness - knowledge and ability to choose foods consciously, but also on the possibility of making this choice, which is ensured by coordinated actions of companies and state. This article discusses approaches to definition of unhealthy and healthy foods, as well as the existing governmental regulations in this area. Based on the review, a model for coordinating multidirectional interests of market players (state, companies and consumers) to ensure the regulation of sales of unhealthy foods has been proposed. The model helps to determine optimal prices and taxes on relevant food products.
Two approaches to the selection of sources for a systematic literature review are compared — expert approach and algorithmic approach, based on an analysis of citation networks. Comparative analysis is conducted on the example of the research field of studying mass behavior. A comparison of two approaches according to formal and substantive criteria allows us to draw conclusions about significant difference, but also complementarity of the obtained results. Sources selected by the algorithmic approach do not reproduce the history of development of the research field described through sources selected by the expert approach. Adding expert elements to the algorithmic approach leads to a result that gives an idea of the links between classical and modern publications and groups of modern works that are interesting for study. The data obtained allow to draw a conclusion about the main reasons for the inconsistency of the results and formulate recommendations for the implementation of the proposed methodology in other areas.
The development of mass higher education resulted in increased enrollments, where each student has his own preferences on ways he organizes the learning process. In this case, digital technologies serve as a tool for adapting educational resources to students’ needs. However, little is known whether adaptive learning can transform the educational system and help students to learn more effectively. In this review paper, we aim to explore existing practices of adaptive learning in higher education. The review is divided into three parts. The first part deals with algorithms of adaptive learning and gives examples of adaptive learning systems. The second part reviews the evidence for the effectiveness of adaptive learning. The final part includes a discussion of the main problems of adaptive learning systems. This issue will be of interest to researchers and managers dealing with the digital transformation of education.
This chapter presents a review of the current literature on theoretical and empirical studies of flow experience (or optimal experience) within Internet-mediated environments. The concept of flow as introduced by Csikszentmihalyi is described, the parameters characterizing optimal forms of experience are discussed, as well as data collection methods which are most often used to measure flow. The particular Internetmediated environments connected with the studies of optimal experience and thoroughly reviewed in the chapter include online (1) shopping, (2) learning, (3) game playing, and (4) interaction. A brief overview of the projects in the field, initiated and performed by the author and his colleagues, is also presented.
The aim of this study is to analyze publication’s evolution on client satisfaction theme from the Scopus database in English language for 60 years period (1954-2014). In order to do it, a literature review on the subject is conducted on 2638 scientific articles and 156 journals. In addition, after establishing 100 top publications topics on client satisfaction theme, we find that authors used almost the same methods of research and data collection. The main results demonstrate the increase of interest over client satisfaction theme in different social and economic sciences as well as in different countries. Important scientific journals, based on their impact factor, also increase the number of publications on client satisfaction. Besides the high interest over this theme in the academia, the international literature reviews are still scarce. Finally, we indicate that our approach, the bibliometric analysis, is a valid tool that can be applied for literature reviews in all areas within social and economics sciences. To our knowledge, the bibliometric analysis is applied for the first time on client satisfaction, so this is also a novel aspect of the paper to highlight.
In the theory and practice of logistics and supply chain management, more and more attention is paid to return flows management.There are a sufficiently large number of research works that has been devoted to the reverse logistics of goods: there are many technologies and best practices that have been successfully implemented.
As for the tasks of managing returns of transport items and packaging, they have been left outside the scope of experts' attention for a long time. Recently, the activity of advertising campaigns for pulling and pallets rental has increased in Russia. Some companies (mainly in manufacturing and trading sectors of FMCG) are going to implement, are already implementing or reporting substantial savings from projects for organizing container return management. Nevertheless, there are still many gaps for researchers and business community.
The article provides an overview of recent publications on the returnable containers management, analyzes terminology in this area, identifies and analyzes the main strategies for managing return flows of containers.The study shows that the issues of transport items return management have not received adequate coverage in Russian scientific and business literature. Moreover, despite the variety of foreign studies there is no basic terminology in this field and systematization of supplychain configuration alternatives. In addition, fragmentation of information in open sources about the practice of implementing / operating transport items management systems in Russian bussiness makes it relevant to conduct research on this topic.
The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
The paper examines the principles for the supervision of financial conglomerates proposed by BCBS in the consultative document published in December 2011. Moreover, the article proposes a number of suggestions worked out by the authors within the HSE research team.
