    • 20 Years of Nordic tourism economics research: a review and future research agenda 

      Falk, Martin; Tveteraas, Sigbjørn Landazuri; Xie, Jinghua (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-13)
      The number of economics-related articles in the Scandinavian Journal of Hospitality and Tourism (SJHT) has recently increased considerably. Despite this increase, the research efforts of Nordic economists on tourism issues have lagged behind in an international comparison. The recent increase in the number of economics-related publications in SJHT is due to better access to microdata (individual and ...

      Björk, Peter; Prebensen, Nina Katrine; Räikkönnen, Julia; Sundbo, Jon (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-12)
      During the past decades, tourism experience research has become a topical theme among Nordic researchers and in international tourism literature. This review provides an overview of the main themes of Nordic experience research, addresses the antecedents of tourism experiences, namely tourists’ emotional and interest regimes, and tourism experience outcomes, namely the value of tourism. Furthermore, ...
    • 27 days of managerial work in the police service 

      Karp, Tom; Filstad, Cathrine; Glomseth, Rune (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-09)
      The purpose of this study was to uncover the realities of managerial work in the Norwegian police service. Observation and interview of 27 police managers showed that managerial work emerged and unfolded through specific practices, which occurred within a shared organisational practice shaped by police culture, context and mission. Managers practiced in a variety of ways rather than according to a ...
    • Absorptive capacity and energy efficiency in manufacturing firms – An empirical analysis in Norway 

      Solnørdal, Mette Talseth; Thyholdt, Sverre Braathen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-07-02)
      Increased energy efficiency (EE) in manufacturing firms is important for confronting climate challenges. However, the information barrier is considered a major restriction on EE innovation. Building on the theory of absorptive capacity and the current EE literature, we argue that this barrier relates to firms' ability to assimilate and exploit information. Thus, this study's objective is to analyse ...

    • Accumulated marine pollution and fishery dynamics 

      Bergland, Harald; Pedersen, Pål Andreas; Wyller, John Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-05)
      We analyze the possible impacts of pollution on a fishery by means of a dynamical systems theory approach. The proposed model presupposes that activities stimulating economic growth also cause higher emissions that remediate or accumulate in the oceans. The density of pollution is assumed to affect the fishery negatively by reducing biological growth potential and decreasing marginal willingness to ...
    • Adding an Ethical and Spiritual Dimension to Sustainable Business Models 

      Bertella, Giovanna (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-06)
      This conceptual paper argues for the explicit inclusion of the inherent ethical and spiritual dimensions of sustainability in approaches to business models. The main characteristics of literature on sustainable business models are reviewed. Based on some of the main tenets of ecofeminism and Buddhism, it is observed that some important aspects of sustainability’s ethical and spiritual dimensions in ...
    • Adoption of alternative fuel vehicles: Influence from neighbors, family and coworkers 

      Jansson, Johan; Pettersson, Thomas; Mannberg, Andrea; Brännlund, Runar; Lindgren, Urban (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-07)
      During the last years, many governments have set targets for increasing the share of biofuels in the transportation sector. Understanding consumer behavior is essential in designing policies that efficiently increase the uptake of cleaner technologies. In this paper we analyze adopters and non-adopters of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs). We use diffusion of innovation theory and the established ...
    • Aktive turister gir verdier 

      Prebensen, Nina Katrine (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2013-06-20)
      Reiselivsnæringen i Norge forteller at turistene bruker mindre penger. Undersøkelser viser at turistene synes Norge er ensformig, kjedelig, og dyrt. Hva gjør norgesferien variert, spennende og verdifull? Hva gir valuta for pengene? Det å forstå hvordan verdier skapes i opplevelsesbransjene er grunnleggende for økt lønnsomhet, konkurransekraft og bærekraftighet. Opplevelsesindustrien blir i stor ...

    • “All along the curves”: Bridging the gap between comparative statics and simultaneous econometric models 

      Brækkan, Eivind Hestvik; Myrland, Øystein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-31)
      A simultaneous econometric model of supply and demand provides estimates of own-price effects and the effect of exogenous variables on supply or demand. Most of the time economists use elasticities derived from econometric analysis in a ceteris paribus context, more seldom in a total elasticity setting (Buse in J Farm Econ 40:881–891, 1958). Perhaps even more seldom net effects of exogenous changes ...
    • The all-pay auction with cross-shareholdings 

      Konrad, Kai A.; Clark, Derek J.; Riis, Christian (Working paper; Arbeidsnotat, 2007-02)
      We consider an all-pay auction between several firms under asymmetric information in which each firm owns a share in its rival. We characterize the equilibrium and show how much these cross-shareholdings serve to dampen competition. Additionally, we explain why the well known relationship between the equilibrium strategies of the standard first price and all-pay auctions breaks down in our setting.
    • An Analysis of a Semelparous Population Model with Density-Dependent Fecundity and Density - Dependent Survival Probabilities. 

      Wikan, Arild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-17)
      A discrete age-structured semelparous Leslie matrix model where density dependence is included both in the fecundity and in the survival probabilities is analysed. Depending on strength of density dependence, we show in the precocious semelparous case that the nonstationary dynamics may indeed be rich, ranging from SYC (a dynamical state where the whole population is in one age class only) dynamics ...
    • An analysis of Discrete stage-structured prey and prey-predator population models. 

      Wikan, Arild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-04-16)
      Discrete stage-structured prey and prey-predator models are considered. Regarding the former, we prove that the models at hand are permanent (i.e., the population will neither go extinct nor exhibit explosive oscillations) and, moreover, that the transfer from stability to nonstationary behaviour always goes through a supercritical Neimark−Sacker bifurcation.The prey model covers species that ...
    • Analyzing the returns of the first transaction satisfaction on intention to purchase and willingness to pay: Evidence for new food products 

      Tudoran, Ana Alina; Olsen, Svein Ottar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-12-22)
      The present study sheds light on the kind of relationships that link first transaction consumer satisfaction (CS), purchase intention (PI), and willingness to pay (WTP) for new food products. The article presents a comparative evaluation of linear and nonlinear quadratic and cubic specifications used to assess the relationships involved. The study uses empirical evidence from three product-testing ...
    • Animal-based experiences and animal experiences: farm animals’ perspective on human leisure in rural settings 

      Bertella, Giovanna (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-04-20)
      This study poses the question: How are leisure experiences inspired by rural practices about the traditional use of farm animals lived by the animals? The aim is to contribute to the literature about farm animals in leisure experiences and the animals’ perspectives on the leisure experiences in which they are involved.<p> <p>Based on the main tenets of ecofeminism, it explores the research question ...
    • Aquaculture, pollution and fishery - dynamics of marine industrial interactions 

      Bergland, Harald; Burlakov, Evgenii; Pedersen, Pål Andreas; Wyller, John Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-07-10)
      We model bioeconomic interrelations between a commercial fishery and an aquaculture industry by using a dynamical systems theory approach. The biomass follows a logistic growth where the pollution emerging from aquaculture is accounted for by means of a retardation term. We investigate the existence and stability of the equilibrium states of this model as a function of the growth-retardation parameter ...
    • Aquaculture-fisheries interactions 

      Mikkelsen, Eirik (Working paper; Arbeidsnotat, 2006-02)
      Assuming externalities from aquaculture to fisheries, we use a Verhulst-Schaefer model of fish population-dynamics and production, coupled with an aquaculture production model, to investigate effects on open-access and rent-maximising fisheries. Externalities are modelled by letting carrying capacity, intrinsic growth rate or catchability coefficient in the fishery depend on aquaculture production. ...
    • The art of untangling: High North SME board directors' challenges in understanding strategy, control, and service tasks 

      Fjellvær, Hilde; Olsen, Trude Høgvold; Solstad, Elsa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Boards of directors represent an important, but understudied, resource for business development of High North SMEs. We studied board director perceptions of what constitutes the most important board tasks and which activities each major task actually involved. We followed a local board development project with participants from several industries and companies in Northern Norway over a two-year ...
