This study is an exploratory examination of cultural differences in accounting educators epistemological beliefs of accounting ethics education. It is motivated by a renewed global interest in accounting ethics in recent years following the reported breaches of ethical conducts by individuals from different cultures. In Pratts model, conceptions of teaching should be an interdependent and internally consistent trilogy of beliefs, intentions and actions. The purpose of this empirical study is to sketch an outline of how accounting ethics education is broadly understood by accounting educators from three different cultural backgrounds, the Anglo-influenced Australian, the Chinese and the Moslem-dominated Malaysian. It explores the cross-cultural variations in their epistemological beliefs of what to teach, objectives to achieve, the ethics educator, and the learning process. Results suggest that Australian and Malaysian accounting educators differed significantly in their epistemological beliefs on the
Voluntary participation is connected to cultural, political, religious and social contexts. Social and societal factors can provide opportunities, expectations and requirements for voluntary activity, as well as influence the values and norms promoting this. These contexts are especially central in the case of voluntary participation among students as they are often responding to the societal demands for building a career and qualifying for future assignments and/or government requirements for completing community service. This article questions how cultural values affect attitudes towards volunteerism, using data from an empirical research project on student volunteering activity in 13 countries in NorthAmerica, Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia Pacific region. The findings indicate that there are differences in motivation between countries which represent different cultural values. This article sets these findings in context by comparing structural and cultural factors which may influence ...
The importance of customer experience in the banking sector is steadily increasing due to product similarity, competition and the global expansion. Additionally, in the twenty-first century, the focus has shifted from a service-based to an experience-based economy where senses, feelings, impressions, perceptions and emotional connections have become central.. The global expansion in the banking sector has created a need for cross-cultural studies of customer experience, because of the increase of success when the service delivery is in tune with the cultural differences of customers. Despite the scarcity of cross-cultural studies, the few existing studies have shown significant results.. The purpose of this study is hence to compare the perceived customer experience in the banking sector in Sweden and the United States. These two countries are culturally different on the masculinity versus femininity dimension explained by Hofstede in the universally acknowledged study on cross-cultural ...
Perception of charisma, the ability to infuence others by virtue of ones personal qualities, appears to be infuenced to some extent by cultural factors. We compare results of five studies of charisma speech in which American, Palestinian, and Swedish subjects rated Standard American English political speech and Americans and Palestinians rated Palestinian Arabic speech. We identify acoustic-prosodic and lexical features correlated with charisma ratings of both languages for native and non-native speakers and find that 1) some acoustic-prosodic features correlated with charisma ratings appear similar across all five experiments; 2) other acoustic-prosodic and lexical features correlated with charisma appear specific to the language rated, whatever the native language of the rater; and 3) still other acoustic-prosodic cues appear specific to both rater native language and to language rated. We also find that, while the absolute ratings non-native raters assign tend to be lower than those of ...
OBJECTIVES To determine patterns of symptoms across age groups, identify symptom groups associated with ovarian hormonal depletion or other variables, and develop a prediction model for each symptom. DESIGN This was a cross-sectional survey of 4,517 women ages 20 to 70 years recruited from market research panels in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Italy using a self-report questionnaire that included general health information and a checklist of 36 symptoms. Stepwise regression was used to determine for each symptom how prevalence varied with age, indicators of menopausal hormonal changes, and the effects of other explanatory variables, including body mass index, morbidity, and country. Hierarchical clustering was used to group symptoms. RESULTS Six groups of symptoms were found, of which two groups, with seven symptoms in total, were related to markers of menopausal hormonal change: a group consisting of hot flashes and night sweats and a second group including poor memory;
Conviction subtype Taijin-Kyofu (c-TK) is a subgroup of mental disorder characterized by conviction and strong fear of offending others in social situations. Although the concept of c-TK overlaps with that of social anxiety disorder (SAD), patients with c-TK often may not be diagnosed as such within the current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)-IV criteria. We propose the Nagoya-Osaka criteria to amend this situation. This study examined the cross-cultural interrater reliability of the proposed criteria. Eighteen case vignettes of patients with a variety of complaints focused around social anxieties were collected from 6 different countries, and diagnosed by 13 independent raters from various nationalities according to the original DSM-IV and the expanded criteria. The average agreement ratio for the most frequent diagnostic category in each case was 61.5% with DSM-IV and 87.6% with the modified DSM-IV with Nagoya-Osaka criteria (p , 0.001). These findings indicate that ...
This study makes a unique contribution to the extant body of materialism research. It provides insight of materialism in modern China by applying the MGB and developing cognitive schemas. Two waves of survey were conducted. The first was conducted in both China and US in 1998. Respondents answered a qualitative motive elicitation part in the questionnaire and provided motives for choosing between a materialistic vs. a non-materialist lifestyle. 330 complete questionnaires were obtained in China and 362 in US. The second wave of survey was conducted in China in 2008 with 322 complete questionnaires collected. Respondents responded to an identical qualitative part for eliciting motives for lifestyle choice and a quantitative inventory of closed-ended questions measuring variable in the MGB. The findings showed that subjective norms, anticipated positive emotions and perceived behavioral control are significant predictors of desire and intentions to pursue a materialistic lifestyle for Chinese ...
This chapter summarizes the logic of comparative studies, and the work on Italian immigration to Buenos Aires and New York City from 1870 to 1914, and proposes what may be a coming agenda for immigration studies: a comparative typology of immigrant adjustment. It points out the need for more synthetic treatments that would historicize the experiences of all immigrating peoples. ...
Driving demands significant psychomotor attention and requires even more when drivers are engaged in secondary tasks that increase cognitive workload and divert attention. It is well established that age influences driving risk. Less is known about how culture impacts changes in attention. We conducted parallel driving simulations in the US and Korea to measure the extent to which age and culture influence dual-task performance. There were 135 participants divided into two groups: a younger group aged 20~29, and an older group aged 60~69. Whereas some differences by culture appeared in absolute control measures, the younger participants showed similar mean velocity and compensatory patterns associated with increased cognitive load in the urban setting; however, the results from the older samples were less similar. © 2010 The Korean Society of Automotive Engineers and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. ...

A cross-cultural analysis of mortality patterns is of interest to biological anthropologists and genetic epidemiologists. In this paper, we examine four agricultural populations from Costa Rica, Hungary, and the United States in order to determine if they suffered from a cyclical distribution of epidemics. When possible, we look at the mortality time series of adults and children separately. Of the12 series, only 2 show significant epidemic cycles. Both are in the Hungarian groups and both affect subadults. Otherwise, the Costa Rica, U.S., and adult series of the Hungarian groups do not show any periodicity of mortality peaks. Our results indicate that epidemic cycles are not as ubiquitous in small agricultural groups as the literature would suggest.

Visual object identification is modulated by perceptual experience. In a cross-cultural ERP study we investigated whether cultural expertise determines how buildings that vary in their ranking between high and low according to the Western architectural decorum are perceived. Two groups of German and Chinese participants performed an object classification task in which high- and low-ranking Western buildings had to be discriminated from everyday life objects. ERP results indicate that an early stage of visual object identification (i.e., object model selection) is facilitated for high-ranking buildings for the German participants, only. At a later stage of object identification, in which object knowledge is complemented by information from semantic and episodic long-term memory, no ERP evidence for cultural differences was obtained. These results suggest that the identification of architectural ranking is modulated by culturally specific expertise with Western-style architecture already at an ...
This study is one of the first studies to approach workplace bullying cross-culturally. It sought to compare employees understanding of workplace bullying in two different world regions: Central America and Southern Europe, regarding three aspects of workplace bullying: psychological vs. physical harassment, hierarchical vs. horizontal bullying, and direct vs. indirect aggression. A convenience sample of 246 workers provided their own definition of workplace bullying through a single, open-ended question. The results showed that employees from Central America emphasized the physical component of workplace bullying more than the Southern European employees. However, similarities in the conceptualization of workplace bullying across both cultures were found as well. Both Southern European and Central American employees defined workplace bullying mainly as a hierarchical phenomenon, where the aggression took the form of direct strategies. Such differences and similarities bring to the field some ...
During occupational therapy for children with autism, it is often necessary to elicit and maintain engagement for the children to benefit from the session. Recently, social robots have been used for this; however, existing robots lack the ability to autonomously recognize the childrens level of engagement, which is necessary when choosing an optimal interaction strategy. Progress in automated engagement reading has been impeded in part due to a lack of studies on child-robot engagement in autism therapy. While there are large individual differences within the autistic population, little is known about variation across cultures. We analyzed the engagement of children (age 3-13) from two different cultural backgrounds: Asia (Japan, n=17) and Eastern Europe (Serbia, n=19). The children participated in a 25 minute therapy session during which we studied the relationship between the childrens behavioural engagement (task-driven) and different facets of affective engagement (valence and arousal). Although
The Chinese government has announced the 2013 Guidelines for developing a national system for early detection of disability among children under 6 years of age. However, given limited resources, challenges exist with developmental measures required in the 2013 Guidelines. In order to meet the needs for a more accurate and cost-efficient measure for developmental assessment, the Ages & Stages Questionnaires:INVENTORY was translated into Simplified Chinese, and validated on a regional sample of 812 Chinese children ages from 1-25 months. Psychometric properties were examined; data from previous studies on the ASQ:INVENTORY in the U.S. were compared to identify differences between the two countries. Results indicated that the Chinese ASQ:INVENTORY was an instrument with sufficient internal consistency, reliability and validity. It was well accepted by parents and professionals in China. Findings suggested that the Chinese ASQ:INVENTORY provides a promising alternative measure for screening and ...
The most neglected sections of the newer communities; men learned English at work, children at school, but housebound women were apparently not being reached. 4. The classes would teach everyday functional English to enable the women to make use of the amenities available in their neighbourhood, and to give them the means of relating to daily life in this country. (Grant, 1993, in NATECLA News 41:7) It was their (volunteers, mostly middle-class women like Ruth Hayman) concern for these largely rural, non-English speaking and often illiterate in their own mother tongue, immigrants and their determination to do something to help them which completely transformed the entire ethos of ESOL teachingfrom being provided by a bureaucracy indifferent to the immigrants lot. This rise of English and English consciousness among the Anglo-Saxons and their supporters also signalled the subordination of the indigenous Celtic mother tongues. Once English became the court language, and language teachers began to ...

Children and adults speaking English, Hungarian, and Italian were asked to describe sets of pictures which manipulated the pragmatic category of givenness. The working hypothesis was that there exist rule-governed relations between the perception of certain categorical aspects of the communicative situation and the use of certain conventional linguistic devices. A set of predictions regarding the use of eight linguistic devices was derived from Prague School functionalist theory. The results indicated: (1) very early learning of the pragmatic function of the devices, (2) differentiation with age in the absolute level of use of the devices, (3) differences in the relations of the various devices to the manipulation of givenness, and (4) baseline effects in the use of the devices.

Paediatricians offices are often adorned with a developmental milestone chart for infants, and they always show the same normal age-typical progression, from sitting to crawling to walking. But these expectations (e.g. 25 per cent of infants achieve independent sitting by 5.5 months) are rather misleading because theyre derived solely from research on Western babies conducted…
Cross-national comparisons allow us to track the performance of the U.S. health care system, highlight areas of strength and weakness, and identify factors that may impede or accelerate improvement. This analysis is the latest in a series of Commonwealth Fund cross-national comparisons that use health data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), as well as from other sources, to assess U.S. health care system spending, supply, utilization, and prices relative to other countries, as well as a limited set of health outcomes.1,2 Thirteen high-income countries are included: Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. On measures where data are widely available, the value for the median OECD country is also shown. Almost all data are for years prior to the major insurance provisions of the Affordable Care Act; most are for 2013.. Health care spending in the U.S. far ...
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) tracks and reports annually on more than 1,200 health system measures across 30 industrialized countries, ranging from population health status and nonmedical determinants of health to health care resources and utilization. Based on analysis of OECD health data from 2008, the United States continues to differ markedly from other countries on a number of health system measures. The U.S. has a comparatively low number of hospital beds and physicians per capita, and patients in the U.S. have fewer hospital and physician visits than those in most other countries. At the same time, spending per hospital visit is highest in the U.S., and American patients are among the most likely to receive procedures requiring complex technology. The nation now ranks in the bottom quartile in life expectancy among OECD countries and has seen the smallest improvement in this metric over the past 20 years.. ...
Objectives. The present study aims to compare the direction and magnitude of sex differences in mortality and major health dimensions across Denmark, Japan and the US. Methods. The Human Mortality Database was used to examine sex differences in age-specific mortality rates. The Danish twin surveys, the Danish 1905-Cohort Study, the Health and Retirement Study, and the Nihon University Japanese Longitudinal Study of Aging were used to examine sex differences in health. Results. Men had consistently higher mortality rates at all ages in all three countries, but they also had a substantial advantage in handgrip strength compared with the same-aged women. Sex differences in activities of daily living (ADL) became pronounced among individuals aged 85+ in all three countries.

Results Among the 39 countries used in analyses, the prevalence of frequent fighting was highest in Tunisia (8.4%) and lowest in Myanmar (0.5%). One-way ANOVA and post hoc testing determined that the prevalence of frequent fighting varies significantly by region (F(2, 28)=4.12, p,0.05), with the Eastern Mediterranean having a significantly higher prevalence of frequent fighting than the Americas (p,0.05). The percentage of fighters that reported frequent fighting also varied significantly by region (F(2,28)=3.36, p,0.05), with the Eastern Mediterranean having a higher percentage of frequent fighters than Africa (p,0.05).. ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper contributes to cross-cultural research by identifying the theoretical and methodological strengths and weaknesses of selected previous research related to accountants values and judgments. The objective is to inform and guide both the theoretical specification and treatment of culture and its operationalisation and methodology. It is argued that enhancement in the quality of cross-cultural research in accounting can be accomplished by providing greater insight into the depth, richness and complexity of cultural and acculturational similarities and differences between and across nations by complementing the quantified dimensional based cultural measures with relevant historical, sociological and psychological literature. Methodological recommendations include the need to establish content equivalence in the accounting constructs or issues being examined, the potential influence of non-controlled contingency variables, such as differences in organisational
In this paper aspects of the term cross-cultural are discussed. It is common that this concept is used in a non-reflexive way in technological and cultural focused literature. Somehow it seems to be taken for granted that interactions are cross-cultural if they are committed between people from different countries or from different parts of the world. I argue that the same interactions can be both cross-cultural and in-cultural depending on which theoretical standpoint the researcher chose to enact in the analysis. Based in my research I analyze some interviews, in order to explore if they should be regarded as cross-cultural or in-cultural. The aim is to inspire discussions among researchers in technology areas about what the term cross-cultural really means. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Translation, Cross-Cultural Adaptation, and Validation of the Activity Rating Scale for Disorders of the Knee. AU - Flosadottir, Vala. AU - Roos, Ewa M. AU - Ageberg, Eva. PY - 2017. Y1 - 2017. N2 - BACKGROUND: The Activity Rating Scale (ARS) for disorders of the knee evaluates the level of activity by the frequency of participation in 4 separate activities with high demands on knee function, with a score ranging from 0 (none) to 16 (pivoting activities 4 times/wk).PURPOSE: To translate and cross-culturally adapt the ARS into Swedish and to assess measurement properties of the Swedish version of the ARS.STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study (diagnosis); Level of evidence, 2.METHODS: The COSMIN guidelines were followed. Participants (N = 100 [55 women]; mean age, 27 years) who were undergoing rehabilitation for a knee injury completed the ARS twice for test-retest reliability. The Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), Tegner Activity Scale (TAS), and modernized Saltin-Grimby ...
Results of this study support the reliability and validity of the CIDS scale in patients with type 1 diabetes. Moderate correlations in the expected directions support construct validity while indicating that the CIDS scale reflects a unique construct. The CIDS scale demonstrated high psychometric similarity in Dutch and U.S. samples, allowing for cross-cultural comparisons. Examination of the factor structure showed that the CIDS scale is best considered and used as a unidimensional scale.. Because all items relate to different aspects of diabetes self-management and internal consistency is not compromised by any of them, redundancy does not seem to be a major concern. Research has consistently found that diabetes self-care behaviors are relatively independent of one another and that assessing the specific areas is important in determining the need for further support (40). The value of retaining the present items is underlined by the moderate correlation between the full-scale and the single ...
Papers that conceptualize ethnicity as an aspect of public health have increased in number over recent years in Social Science & Medicine, as elsewhere. This virtual special issue includes a selection of papers, mostly published in the last five years, to highlight recent developments in this area. The question of whether the risks associated with reifying ethnic categories in particular settings, thereby reinforcing racialised models of thinking, is addressed. The wisdom of seeking to construct ethnicity-type variables for the purpose of global cross-cultural comparison is queried.An unavoidable contradiction of studying ethnicity is the inevitable re-inscription of ethnic and racialised categories. Inequities in health outcome or quality of health service provision and uptake are injustices that have to be measured in order to be addressed. Whether research is qualitative or quantitative and whether or not an investigation finds inequalities, the definition of an ethnic group whether in terms ...

Is the Use of Averaging in Advice Taking Modulated by Culture? by Mercier, Hugo; Yama, Hiroshi; Kawasaki, Yayoi; Adachi, Kuniko; Van der Henst, Jean-Baptiste. Abstract : Many recent experiments have explored the way people take advice into account. It has been observed that in so doing participants often rely on one of the two following strategies: averaging between the different opinions or choosing one of the opinions, as opposed to using more complex weighting strategies. While several factors that affect strategy choice have been investigated, no attention has been paid to potential cultural variations. Among the many relevant cross-cultural differences, results have show that Easterners tend to favor compromise more than Westerners, a difference that could translate into a greater preference for averaging in Eastern population. In Experiment 1, we confronted Japanese and ...
Henrietta Mondrys monograph is the first interdisciplinary and cross-cultural study of the most original and controversial turn-of-the-century Russian writer and thinker, Vasily Rozanov. Once described as the Russian Freud, Rozanov developed a unique methodology for his writing, a methodology based on the interpretation of cultural history through the lens of sexuality. As such, he can be viewed as a Russian Foucault who wrote his own original history of sexuality in application to the main Russian classical writers of the nineteenth century. The book focuses on the constructs of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality which Rozanov used to explicate the political, social, and artistic narratives of the "great five" of Russian literature: Alexander Pushkin, Nikolai Gogol, Ivan Turgenev, Fedor Dostoevsky, and Leo Tolstoy. Further, it explores how Rozanov applied the concept of "impure" blood in order to demonize writers and important cultural personalities from the democratic camp, thus setting a ...

This will be a first cross-cultural study to adulthood of infants who were very premature in an international collaboration with Finnish investigators. The funding amount for the Canadian component is $1.4 million over four years. For more information, click Canadian-Finnish Consortium receives CIHR funding.. ...
Stigma against overweight people is becoming a cultural norm around the world, even in places where larger bodies have traditionally been valued. Thats according to a cross-cultural study of attitudes toward obesity to be published in the April issue of Current Anthropology.
Cross-cultural studies in Germany, Italy and Japan suggest that its a broad phenomenon.. Further, studies suggest that better detection of these compounds is not entirely dependent ton sex hormones because pre-pubescent female children also detect certain types of odors better than male children. This idea is supported by tests in non-human primates.. This is not to say that sex hormones dont figure into sense of smell. They do. Women typically report a heightened sense of smell mid-menstrual cycle, when estrogen levels are at their highest. Studies suggest that women better detect at mid-cycle the urinoid smelling odorants, such as musks, citral and some hormones. This may have biological importance.. Sex hormones also influence a womans sense of smell during the first trimester of pregnancy. About 67% of pregnant women in one study reported heightened olfaction. In another study, pregnant women with the lowest levels of estrogen prior to becoming pregnant experience little or no change in ...

However, very little training is currently offered on the issues around cross-cultural differences ...
Post-Kellyian research into how experience is constructed by different cultural practices has relied on both quantitative and qualitative research to elicit unexpected varieties of constructs (Ross, 1996). Rep grids have proven useful in ferreting out cross-cultural differences in the construals of clinical symptoms (see Leff, 1973; 1977; 1986; Tamaka-Matsumi & Marsella, 1976); and differences in attitudes to "others" (Neimeyer & Fukuyama, 1984). Oxley and Hort (1996), who choose a different path, argue that culture is about personal construct systems in interaction. Thus, they define culture in terms of "ecologies of meaning". Their qualitative reading accords with the view that culture is expressed in the meeting of communities of selves (Kalekin-Fishman, 1999; see also Mair, 1977). The encounters, interleaved with "plain talk", are part of the dynamics of cultural change (Kalekin-Fishman, 2000). Recognizing that the contemporary human condition is characterized by an active search for changes ...
Globalization has led to the massive inflow of global brands into local markets. As it is hard to change cross-cultural differences, many global brands adapt to local culture by employing local cultural elements in marketing practices. At the same time, global brands are often seen as symbols of foreign cultures (Torelli, Keh, & Chiu, 2010), thus, it is inevitable that ideas, values, practices, images, and symbols of local and foreign cultures are found simultaneously in the marketplace. This phenomenon is defined as culture mixing (Li, Kreuzbauer, & Chiu, in press). Some examples of culture mixing are Starbucks coffee mooncakes, McDonalds in the Louvre Museum in France, and a Starbucks store with a Bing Sutt style in Hong Kong. Exposure to culture mixing can lead to positive or negative responses toward foreign brands from local consumers (Chiu & Cheng, 2007). Consumers who exhibit positive responses tend to have a learning mindset; they see foreign cultures as intellectual resources that ...
OBJECTIVE: To examine the cross-cultural validity of the Problem Areas in Diabetes Scale (PAID) in Dutch and U.S. diabetic patients. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: A total of 1,472 Dutch people with diabetes completed the PAID along with other self-report measures of affect. Statistics covered Cronbachs alpha, exploratory factor analysis (EFA), and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), Pearsons product-moment correlation, and t tests. Psychometric properties of PAID were compared for Dutch and U.S. diabetic patients. RESULTS: Internal consistency of the Dutch PAID was high and stable across sex and type of diabetes. Test-retest reliability was high. Principal component analyses confirmed 1 general 20-item factor, whereas EFA identified 4 new subdimensions: negative emotions, treatment problems, food-related problems, and lack of social support. These dimensions were confirmed with CFA and were replicated in the U.S. sample. The PAID and its subscales demonstrated moderate to high associations in ...
The Health Behaviors in School-age Children (HBSC) survey is the only international survey of its type that includes a national survey of adolescent health behavior in the U.S. The U.S. HBSC complements the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) and the Monitoring the Future surveys of older adolescents. The aims of the survey are to assess the prevalence of health behaviors and identify contextual factors associated with them in a national probability sample of 6th to 10th grade students, allowing for trend analyses and cross-national comparisons among the 40 countries involved in the quadrennial international HBSC surveys. This would be the fourth U.S. administration of the HBSC survey, previously administered in 1997/1998, 2001/2002, and 2005/2006. Because core survey items have remained consistent both nationally and internationally since 2001, the 2009/2010 survey would provide essential data for examining national and international trends ...
Over the last decades, family structure and family dynamics have undergone tremendous changes. In family demography, these changes are typically interpreted as the consequences of deep transformations in values, attitudes and norms. These are defined and measured at the level of the individual, typically using a questionnaire, and, when aggregated, they are usually interpreted either as characteristics of a population - for instance in cross-national comparisons - or as characteristics of different groups within a country, say men and women, the less educated and the well-educated, and so on.. Although these approaches have proven fruitful, they leave aside the formal context within which actors must make the decisions and the choices that will lead to demographic events such as entering in a conjugal relationship, leaving one or having a child. Although these choices and decisions are without any doubt rooted in economic contexts, influenced by individuals values and attitudes, and conditioned ...

There is a paradox in good scholarly publication. Innovation and critical thought against the mainstream often results initially in low citations, yet without such innovation scholarship stagnates. For cross-cultural management scholarship to develop there is a need to demonstrate its relevance to the mainstream. But I dont think this is possible through mainstream thinking. To…
