How people are affected - what sort of characteristics individuals have – how they try to handle situation is multi-perspective. Understanding inter-societal and interpersonal relationship systems that are based on fluctuation and competition issues have been studied thoroughly. But, the role of entrepreneurship in dealing with competition has drawn researchers' extensive interest of late. Entrepreneurship is associated with the fields of administration, business, management and economics. However, in reality it is multi and interdisciplinary, with psychology having a bearing on the growth of entrepreneurship concept as is used with the broader meaning today. Through grounded research and content analysis, the core of this paper is to sketch out and understand how societal influence affects the cognitive aspects of entrepreneurship.To obtain a copy of the entire article, click on the link below.www.igi-global.com/article/societal-influence-on-the-cognitive-aspects-of-entrepreneurship/149928To read a PDF sample of this article, click on the link below.www.igi-global.com/viewtitlesample.aspx?id=149928ARTICLE 2Jordanians Perceptions Regarding E-Government Ethical IssuesMai Tarik Al-Sebae (MIS Department, Yarmouk University, Irbid, Jordan), Emad Ahmed Abu-Shanab (MIS Department, Yarmouk University, Irbid, Jordan)Despite the benefits of e-government and the achieved progress, e-government concepts need some support based on its ethical perspective. The purpose of this paper is to present some important ethical issues that must be considered by e-government stakeholders when adopting such initiative. The objectives of this research aimed at exploring how ethical issues influence citizens' adoption, and the challenges for such issues. An empirical test was conducted utilizing 293 surveys to probe Jordanians perceptions regarding major ethical dimensions of e-government projects. It's concluded that e-government has potential to ensure its progress and success by being ethical. Results indicated also that three dimensions significantly predicted the intention to use e-government services: people with disabilities issues, privacy and security issues, and unemployment issues. The only predictor that failed to predict ITU was the environmental aspect of e-government projects. Conclusions and future work are stated at the end of this work.To obtain a copy of the entire article, click on the link below.www.igi-global.com/article/jordanians-perceptions-regarding-e-government-ethical-issues/149929To read a PDF sample of this article, click on the link below.www.igi-global.com/viewtitlesample.aspx?id=149929ARTICLE 3The Future of Healthcare: Political Participation of Nursing and Public Health StudentsChristine Vandenhouten (University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Green Bay, WI, USA), Susan Gallagher-Lepak (University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Green Bay, WI, USA), Derryl E. Block (Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL, USA), Sylvia May Kubsch (University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Green Bay, WI, USA), Jan Strom (Northern Illinios University, DeKalb, IL, USA), Crystalmichelle L. Malakar (Bellin Psychiatric Center, Bellin Health System, De Pere, WI, USA)The U.S. healthcare environment is undergoing rapid change. New policies have reshaped healthcare through reimbursement models focused on access and quality. Advocating for policies that improve population health is important for health professionals and students. For this reason, educators need to know how to prepare students to be active in the political process. Using the Civic Volunteerism Model, factors influencing nursing and public health students' political participation were examined. Both groups had relatively low levels of political participation and differences in types of political activities. The best predictor of political participation was found to be psychological engagement (e.g., political efficacy, partisanship, political interest). Students were more politically active if they attended school part-time, employed more than part-time, and were non-traditional students. Suggested educational strategies and use of social media were discussed. Further exploration of social media as a source of political information and recruitment is recommended.To obtain a copy of the entire article, click on the link below.www.igi-global.com/article/the-future-of-healthcare/149930To read a PDF sample of this article, click on the link below.www.igi-global.com/viewtitlesample.aspx?id=149930ARTICLE 4Organizational Performance Framework: e-Government ServicesSusheel Chhabra (Periyar Management and Computer College, New Delhi, India)The research study proposes an organizational performance framework of Haryana Government departments involved in providing e-Government services through citizen service centers (CSCs). The objective of this framework is to suggest dimensions which need improvement for enhancing organizational performance. This will help to improve efficiency and effectiveness in providing services to citizens through CSCs. The organizational performance framework has been suggested using responses collected from 150 government departments. A log linear regression analysis is used to develop the framework. The framework can be used as a template for Government departments in similar other organizational settings.To obtain a copy of the entire article, click on the link below.www.igi-global.com/article/organizational-performance-framework/149931To read a PDF sample of this article, click on the link below.www.igi-global.com/viewtitlesample.aspx?id=149931For full copies of the above articles, check for this issue of the International Journal of Civic Engagement and Social Change (IJCESC) in your institution's library.
