Abstract

The eternal dilemma of quality or quantity affects many areas of human life. One of these areas is the publishing industry. This issue is particularly acute for scientific periodicals.
The aim of the study. To analyze the dilemma of the quality or quantity of papers in the publication of a scientific periodical Journal, and to share the four-year experience of publishing the International Journal of Science Annals (IJSA) with publishers, editors, reviewers, and authors. Scientific periodicals should solve the dilemma of quality and quantity of papers definitely in favor of quality. Journals should be committed to a high standard of editorial ethics. Journals should have a clear and precise procedure for reviewing and selecting papers for publication. Journals should necessarily consider the possible conflict of interest in research between authors, editors, reviewers, funders, etc. Journals should motivate young talented scientists to publish their manuscripts by providing them with editorial support in the preparation of the manuscript and funding for its publication. The implementation of these key principles will contribute both to the development of science in general and the Journal in particular.

Revisiting Learner-Centered Ideology, Management, and Paradigm

Abstract

As we know, the educational curriculum refers to academic content taught in schools or a collection of lessons, assessments, or a particular program or course taken on by students (Alanazi, 2016). Granting it is essential to note what a curriculum will achieve, what students will do and use to learn, and what teachers will use to teach the class; however, as to Crowley (2021), the curriculum is in no way neutral—it, at all times, mirrors ideological views.
From a learner-centered ideology, it is presumed that education manifests itself in drawing out people's inherent goodness and capabilities for growth (Schiro, 2013, pp. 5–6). As a teacher wanting to operate in this ideology, I believe the learners have their own abilities for growth. This ideology is all about bringing out the competency within them. On the other hand, classrooms are busy public places; events are unpredictable (Ming-tak & Wai-shing, 2008, pp. 10–11). This requires the teachers to develop their range of classroom management strategies. Setting up a classroom is an essential part of teaching and learning. It involves designing the classroom atmosphere, rules, and expectations (Williamson, 2008, p. 3). Granting there is no sole way of managing a wide array of classrooms, fruitful classroom management is tied to student engagement and empowerment (Honigsfeld & Cohan, 2014).

Abstract

Background and Aim of Study: Developmental delays in children are still a serious problem in both developed and developing countries in the world. About 5-10% of children experience developmental delays. The potential to develop the current media in accordance with technological developments and advances in the use of technology-based platforms.
The aim of the study: to develop a growth and development assessment model to increase knowledge and skills in assessing the growth and development of toddlers and to analyze the implementation of the growth assessment guide model based on android applications.
Material and Methods: This type of research is design and development research with a mixed methods approach. The steps of development research are carried out using the ADDIE framework (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation). In using this framework, designers and developers use analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation as the main stages.
Results: The research product is the “GUVI_Tools” application which is an interactive multimedia-based learning media. The implementation of the application showed a significant increase in knowledge before and after using the application and the average application usage assessment was 4.8 (good category).
Conclusions: It is hoped that this development program can be used as a learning program and can develop learning media on other basic competencies and can be continued at the stage of testing the effectiveness of the learning process.

Abstract

Writing a thesis or a research proposal poses enormous challenges specially in these times of information superabundance. And the positive side is that we have a lot of information to use during our research. The other phenomenon to take into consideration is the misinformation and how it could affect our research. Again, we can overcome this difficulty by applying structured research methods. The methodology proposed here starts with understanding the research problem applying the systemic thinking; then looing for information with mapping studies; evaluating the publications obtained with information quality tools; testing multiple hypothesis at the same time; and finally, if needed preparing a Gantt chart to plan the research. All these methodologies when together highlight the positive side of the synergies while minimize the impact of the cognitive bias. The aim of the study: To describe the importance of having a structured tool to write a thesis or setting up a research project.
Materials and Methods: This tool was developed after analysing several research methodologies and studying their usefulness for problem-solving. Currently, new tools are under evaluation to enrich the course.
Results: The proposal presented here is a problem-solving course that includes five methodologies: systems theory, mapping studies, information quality, and competing hypothesis, plus the Gantt chart. When they are used in sequence, it is possible to obtain outstanding results and also the process is auditable in its whole extension. This course has been presented several times at universities and other places in Argentina and also in Peru, with interesting and relevant results.

“Looking for Fun or Escaping the Fear?” How Can COVID-19 Cyberchondriacs Enjoy the Online Shopping During the Pandemic

Abstract

Background and Aim of Study: As the pandemic escalated into a global health crisis with abundant reports, updates and personal stories invading the World Wide Web and the social media, the context of COVID-19 offered for researchers an opportunity exploring the cyberchondria concept. Surprisingly, despite its prominence, the consequences of this shift in health behavior are still not fully appreciated. For many cyberchondriacs, the online shopping experience is considered as a coping strategy.
The aim of the study: to investigate how excessive health-related anxiety leads to online shopping enjoyment, and to examine the mediating roles of COVID-19 fear and hedonic shopping motivation.
Material and Methods: A survey methodology is used to collect responses from a sample of 355 consumers in Tunisia and analyzed via AMOS 23. Structural equation modeling was used to assess the causal relationship between measured variables.
Results: Our results indicate that during the current pandemic, the cyberchondria was associated with an increased online shopping enjoyment guided both by a developed fear from this virus and some of the hedonic motivations.
Conclusions: This study is one of the first studies that investigate the impact of cyberchondria on shopping experiences. Our findings may indicate starting points for some public health marketers and managers to make interventions to reduce cyberchondria during the pandemic. Particularly, online shopping may be considered as a safe space, where anxious people may escape. However, public health organizations should carefully consider these outcomes of cyberchondria and should elucidate clear pathways of action so that consumers feel empowered to tackle the pandemic effectively.

Abstract

Background: The COVID-19 pandemic has posed an unprecedented threat to global healthcare delivery. Moewardi Hospital was appointed by the government of Indonesia to be a COVID-19 one of regional hospital by June 2020. Other than COVID-19 cases, the hospital also provides care for other diseases which also provides care for oncology patients. The aim of the study: to assess the impact of the social restriction on oncology services in this hospital.
Materials and Methods: This study compares the number of patients undergoing oncology surgery in the Central Surgery Unit and the number of patients attending the Outpatient Surgical Oncology Unit in March to July 2020 with the number of patients in the same timeframe in the previous year (2019).
Results: The number of oncology operations in the Central Surgery Unit of Moewardi Hospital declined substantially during the 5-month pandemic period compared to the same period in the previous year, 2019 (p<0.001). There was also a significant drop in the number of patients attending the outpatient surgical oncology clinic during the pandemic period compared to the previous year (p<0.001) The lowest number of oncology surgeries occurred in April 2020, which was 20 patients. The lowest number of patients visited was 170 outpatients in March 2020. Thyroid and skin cancer cases were the most notable decline in surgical oncology cases in the Central Surgery Unit. The largest number of outpatients in the outpatient surgical oncology clinic during the COVID-19 pandemic was mammae and thyroid cancer.
Conclusions: There was a decline in surgical oncology activities, which culminated in a significant decrease in surgical oncology patients in the Central Surgery Unit and the patient visit to the Moewardi Hospital outpatient oncology clinic during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Abstract

Background and Aim of Study: Since March 2020, the health pandemic caused by COVID-19 has led to the implementation of new teaching scenarios in which ICT tools have become the real protagonists of the learning process. With this situation, the use of Flipgrid has become an effective platform to improve EFL undergraduate students’ speaking skills.
The aim of the study: to demonstrate how a group of EFL undergraduate students’ oral linguistic competence improves thanks to the use of this tool.
Material and Methods: An empirical intervention was carried out with a group of thirty-three students, randomly assigned into a control and an experimental group during the first term of the academic year 2021-2022 in a public University in Madrid (Spain). As instruments for data collection, the grades obtained in the final speaking test of the subject English B2.2. were analyzed. The methodological framework is defined as an exploratory comparative experimentation that provides quantitative data analyzed with the SPSS statistical software.
Results: The results confirm the hypothesis that the use of Flipgrid is beneficial for improving English Studies undergraduate students’ EFL orality since there is a significant difference of p=0.02.
Conclusions: In the light of the results obtained in this research and the scarce studies focused on Flipgrid in the EFL classroom, it is advisable for teachers to use this collaborative tool to improve students’ orality since the asynchronous interaction among the students which came along with the development of interpersonal skills, and the easy management of Flipgrid, make it an excellent collaborative and motivating tool for EFL undergraduate students.
