  • What Determines the Purchase Intention of Liquid Milk during a Food Security Crisis? The Role of Perceived Trust, Knowledge, and Risk 

    Hoque, Mohammed Ziaul; Alam, Md Nurul (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-16)
    Until today, inadequate food supply, malnutrition, food adulteration, etc., are still the key concern in developing economies. In order to address these issues of food security crisis, and to stimulate a sustainable supply of liquid milk (LM), a consumer behavior model was created, in which consumers’ perceived knowledge, trust and risk were the major catalysts. To shed light on this context, the ...

  • Prey-Predator Interactions in Two and Three Species Population Models 

    Wikan, Arild; Kristensen, Ørjan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-02-17)
    Discrete nonlinear two and three species prey-predator models are considered. Focus is on stability and nonstationary behaviour. Regarding the two species model, depending on the fecundity of the predator, we show that the transfer from stability to instability goes through either a supercritical flip or a supercritical Neimark-Sacker bifurcation and moreover that there exist multiple attractors in ...
  • Who's at risk in the backcountry? Effects of individual characteristics on hypothetical terrain choices 

    Mannberg, Andrea; Hendrikx, Jordy; Landrø, Markus; Ahrland Stefan, Martin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-18)
    We use data from an online survey in Norway (N = 467, 73% male; age: M = 34, SD = 10.07) to analyze hypothetical choices in hazardous avalanche terrain. We further analyze differences in stated preference for and willingness to accept to ski relatively risky terrain. Our results suggest that risk attitudes and perception constitute important determinants for hypothetical terrain choices. We further ...

The profiles were based on variables from the present and future dimensions of the Zimbardo Time Perspective Inventory (ZTPI), the Consideration of Future Consequences Scale (CFCS), and the combination of both scales. The analysis revealed that there were only two ...

  • Stable and unstable equilibrium states in a fishery-aquaculture model 

    Bergland, Harald; Pedersen, Pål Andreas; Wyller, John Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-20)
    We study interactions between fishery and aquaculture using a 3D generalized Lotka–Volterra model, where we assume that the aquaculture production may affect the growth rate in the fish stock and the productivity in harvesting. In addition, input demands from both marine industries may result in effort competition. We identify conditions for the coexistence of a unique equilibrium state inside the ...
  • Measuring impact through experimental design in entrepreneurship education: A literature review and research agenda 

    Longva, Kjersti Kjos; Foss, Lene (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-16)
    True experimental design and quasi-experimental design are considered to be rigorous research designs appropriate for assessing the impact of pedagogical interventions. This study explores the extent and application of experimental design in impact research on entrepreneurship education (EE) based on a systematic literature review. The findings reveal a substantial lack of methodologically rigorous ...
  • Japanese tourists’ relatedness and connectedness with nature 

    Prebensen, Nina Katrine; Lee, Young-Sook; Kim, Hyelin Lina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-15)
    Nature-based tourism continues to gain importance globally. Research on sustainability claims that disconnection between nature and humanity may contribute to the environmental problems that we face in the 21st century. It is, thus, quintessential to better understand the underlying variables for sustainable behaviour in a tourism context. Research suggests scales on nature relatedness (NRS) and ...

  • Resultatstyring i handelshøyskolen: En kvalitetsutopi? 

    Madsen, Cindy Cathrine (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-11-30)

Oppgaven tegner et bilde av hvordan forståelsen av kvalitetsbegrepet, strategi og mål varierer på ulike nivåer og avdelinger i én organisasjon gjennom å innhente data fra dokumenter og informanter på flere ...
  • Digitalisering og robotisering i NAV - hvordan oppleves prosessene? 

    Øvergård, Iren Monica (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-06-01)
    Undersøkelsen ble foretatt i en økonomienhet i NAV. Regjeringen belyser gjennom Stortingsmeldinger hva som forventes i samfunnet og legger dermed føringer for arbeids- og velferdspolitikken. NAV sine tjenester må respondere på samfunnsutviklingen, og digitaliseringen som skjer i samfunnet berører medarbeidere internt i organisasjoner. Funnene fra undersøkelsen viser at informantene opplever ...
