Dear IJEMS readers,
The current issue of International Journal of Economics & Management Sciences (IJEMS) consists of carefully chosen peer reviewed and most relevant research studies, book reviews, and case reports that might have a strong impact on some societies/markets as well as global applications. Due to the IJEMS rigorous selection process the topics presented in this issue range from Impact of the Government Spending on GDP to Ecological Economics to Artificial Intelligence and Philosophical Anthropology Management, to name but a few. The topics researched and presented in the current issue undoubtedly add value and another piece of understanding to the existing knowledge in their respective fields. What is even more important is that the editors’ yet again recognized/put finger on the research studies and other contributions, which along with providing new findings apply the results to solving the researched problems.
One such research article is titled "Management Instrument in Pharmaceutical Care and Clinical Pharmacy" whose authors analyzed cost management processes in healthcare while "giving some elements for improving management skills to be active part of medical team in management and monitoring costs." The research study is relevant primarily because it provides solutions to the fact that "management theory and practice are not present in the ordinary clinical pharmacy course as autonomous discipline (even if Pharma-economy is regularly studied into classical clinical pharmacy postgraduate course)." The authors provide plausible arguments for their actionable recommendations, which among others include:
· Need to improve healthcare systems by introducing classic management instruments starting from clinical pharmacist university course.
· Professional social media can be used as a communication channel between researcher and healthcare professional and can be utilized as a biomedical database.
Another interesting research study reminds the readers that "philosophical anthropology exceeds the psychological limits on human understanding" and that we all -- without exceptions -- are first humans and then professionals (teachers, lawyers, managers, etc.). In a nutshell, the author poses a research question that has been tackled in a somewhat new fashion shedding additional light to one of the most important management concerns/issues: Can a manager provide his or her best results by choosing, managing and leading their subordinates without completely understanding and harnessing wholeness of team members? Is using personality and similar tests a selection tool that managers should continue to use or abolish due to a more holistic approach to their employees? If we concur with the argument/idea/ notion/fact (you/the readers are to choose which word is more significant and appropriately used here) that "people are people" prior to becoming anything else (including managers), then we seem to be more open for the fact that we are the creators of our creation and that "new ideas and concepts, new attitudes and proposals always emerge into managerial life, merely to prove practically the recent philosophical anthropology's fundamentals of openness and non-stop holistic self-creation in mundane affairs." The author of the research article invites you to inspire people around you by reminding yourself to seek true relationship and not to fall into a trap of continuous playing or being played a role which should never come first if one is to develop and yield his/her full potential as well as potential of others.
The articles you find in the current issue might ignite a research spark in you if you have not already considered conducting a serious research work. Some of the readers might get provoked so much as to find a more appropriate research methodology for a particular research question or hypothesis presented here. Many of you, I am sure, will use the findings/results of the published articles as a generator for ideas of the research problems that need to be tackled in future. Whatever the reason for your interest in the IJEMS published articles, I invite you to --- on behalf of IJEMS --- actively participate in our research mission and add to your existing knowledge by having your daily dose of quality research. I believe that you also share our vision of making a relevant, professional, and ethical research work available globally so we invite you also to share your research findings via IJEMS.
