Quality and Inequality in Regional and Urban Systems Book Excerpt:

In the aftermath of both ongoing globalisation (with both widening and deepening effects on countries, regions and cities) and structural changes resulting from the 2008 economic recession, regions and cities in our world are confronted with a different arena of players, performances and institutions. The challenges are formidable and numerous. Many regions and cities seem to resort to their indigenous strength, without much regard to other players in the field. This has enormous consequences for the competitive behaviour and profile of regional and urban actors but has at the same time deep impacts on the distribution of wealth, income and employment over and within countries, regions and cities. There is indeed much evidence that disparities among regions and in cities are increasing in this new force field. This special issue of REGION makes a solid scientific attempt (i) to map out the spatial consequences of recent transitions in growth trajectories of countries or regions, and (ii) to trace policy strategies and design effective policy information, to cope adequately with these new challenges. The present special issue does so by highlighting the new force field of regional and urban dynamics from three angles in the context of spatial quality and inequality. These will be briefly sketched below.

Statistical Methods for Food Science Book Excerpt:

The recording and analysis of food data are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Consequently, the food scientist inindustry or at study faces the task of using and understandingstatistical methods. Statistics is often viewed as a difficultsubject and is often avoided because of its complexity and a lackof specific application to the requirements of food science. Thissituation is changing – there is now much material onmultivariate applications for the more advanced reader, but a caseexists for a univariate approach aimed at thenon-statistician. This second edition of Statistical Methods for Food Scienceprovides a source text on accessible statistical procedures for thefood scientist, and is aimed at professionals and students in foodlaboratories where analytical, instrumental and sensory data aregathered and require some form of summary and analysis beforeinterpretation. It is suitable for the food analyst, the sensoryscientist and the product developer, and others who work infood-related disciplines involving consumer survey investigationswill also find many sections of use. There is an emphasis on a‘hands-on’ approach, and worked examples using computersoftware packages and the minimum of mathematical formulae areincluded. The book is based on the experience and practice of ascientist engaged for many years in research and teaching ofanalytical and sensory food science at undergraduate andpost-graduate level. This revised and updated second edition is accompanied by a newcompanion website giving the reader access to the datasets andExcel spreadsheets featured in the book.

Ranking Journals in Economics Management and Political Science by Social Choice Theory Methods Book Excerpt:

Data on economic, management and political science journals are used to produce quantitative estimates of (in)consistency of evaluations based on seven popular bibliometric indicators. This paper proposes a new approach to the construction of aggregate journal rankings: aggregation is considered to be a multicriteria decision problem and ordinal ranking methods from social choice theory are employed to solve it. We apply either a direct ranking method based on majority rule (e.g. the Copeland rule, the Markovian method) or a multistage procedure of selection and exclusion of the best journals, as determined by a majority rule-based social choice solution concept (tournament solution), such as the uncovered set and the minimal externally stable set. We use the same method to analyze correlations of rankings and demonstrate that aggregate rankings reduce the number of contradictions and represent the set of single-indicator-based rankings better than any of the seven rankings themselves.

The Impact of Higher Education Ranking Systems on Universities Book Excerpt:

This book, written by three generations of rankings academics with considerable experience from three very different regions of the globe, lifts the lid on the real impact of higher education ranking systems (HERS) on universities and their stakeholders. It critically analyses the criteria that make up the ‘Big Three’ global ranking systems and, using interviews with senior administrators, academics and managers, discusses their impact on universities from four very different continents. Higher education continues to be dominated by a reputational hierarchy of institutions that sustains and is reinforced by HERS. Despite all the opinions and arguments about the legitimacy of the rankings as a construct, it seems experts agree that they are here to stay. The question, therefore, seems to be less about whether or not universities should be compared and ranked, but the manner in which this is undertaken. Delivering a fresh perspective on global rankings, this book summarizes the development of HERS and provides a critical evaluation of the effects of HERS on four different major regions – South Africa, the Arab region, South East Asia, and Australia. It will appeal to any academic, student, university administrator or governing body interested in or affected by global higher education ranking systems.

Sensory and Consumer Research in Food Product Design and Development Book Excerpt:

During the past thirty years, companies have recognized the consumer as the key driver for business and product success. This recognition has, in turn, generated its own drivers: sensory analysis and marketing research, leading first to a culture promoting the expert and then evolving into the systematic acquisition of consumer-relevant information to build businesses. Sensory and Consumer Research in Food Product Design and Development is the first book to present, from the business viewpoint, the critical issues faced by business leaders from both the research development and business development perspective. This popular volume, now in an updated and expanded second edition, presents a unique perspective afforded by the author team of Moskowitz, Beckley, and Resurreccion: three leading practitioners in the field who each possess both academic and business acumen. Newcomers to the field will be introduced to systematic experimentation at the very early stages, to newly emerging methods for data acquisition/knowledge development, and to points of view employed by successful food and beverage companies. The advanced reader will find new ideas, backed up by illustrative case histories, to provide another perspective on commonly encountered problems and their practical solutions. This book is aimed at professionals in all sectors of the food and beverage industry. Sensory and Consumer Research in Food Product Design and Development is especially important for those business and research professionals involved in the early stages of product development, where business opportunity is often the greatest.
