Mannheim, Germany (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
ScienceIndex.com is a Web 2.0 sciences social network established in 1998 to index the very latest news, headlines, references and resources from science journals, books and websites worldwide. The site covers news in all fields of biology, business, chemistry, engineering, geography, health, mathematics and society. In the field of business, the site has now included the three new categories Management, Marketing and Nonprofits. While the Management category covers practices of handling, supervising and controlling business, the Marketing category covers the commercial functions of buying and selling in a market, and the Nonprofits category covers organization not seeking or producing profits.
ScienceIndex.com's Business Sciences Category covers commercial, industrial, and professional occupation. Its seven subsections include Accounting, Administration, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, and Nonprofits.
ScienceIndex.com's Management Sciences Category covers practices of handling, supervising and controlling business. It currently contains over 10,000 articles partly derived from over 160 scientific journals. One of the latest additions covers principles of EU competition policy in sports markets with reference to the institutional framework for doing sports business. This story aims to provide an analysis of the change in sports business environment that results from the 2007 overhaul of the competition rules and policy framework of the European Union. It builds upon the fact that virtually all activities of sports associations that govern and organize a sports discipline are subject to antitrust rules. The authors conclude that with respect to business activities, the focus of European competition policy is on centralized marketing arrangements bundling media rights. However, neither a blacklist of anticompetitive nor a whitelist of pro-competitive sporting rules exists, leaving many aspects open.
ScienceIndex.com's Marketing Sciences category covers the commercial functions of buying and selling in a market. It currently contains over 2,650 articles partly derived from almost 50 scientific journals. One recently included article in this category addresses the question of how an established firm can successfully defend its market against current and future competitors. This article contributes to the marketing discipline by introducing evolutionary game theory, which has not been used previously for analyzing marketing issues, as well as an evolutionary approach to research on market defense. The authors find that in general, a shakeout strategy tends to be superior to a deterrence strategy. They, however, also identify product and market conditions under which an established firm is better off focusing on a deterrence strategy. By comparing social venture capitalists with students, the authors show that experience leads to a simpler decision model focusing on key attributes.
ScienceIndex.com's Nonprofits Sciences Category covers organization not seeking or producing profits. It currently contains over 600 articles partly derived from over 20 scientific journals. One of the latest additions analyzes how social venture capitalists evaluate the integrity of social entrepreneurs by investigated the entrepreneur’s personal experience, professional background, voluntary accountability efforts, reputation and awards/fellowships granted to the entrepreneur. By comparing social venture capitalists with students, the authors show that experience leads to a simpler decision model focusing on key attributes.
