  1. An Investigation of the Divergences and Convergences of Trait Empathy Across Two Cultures.Paria Yaghoubi Jami, Behzad Mansouri, Stephen J. Thoma & Hyemin Han - forthcoming - Journal of Moral Education:1-16.
    The extent to which individuals with a variety of cultural backgrounds differ in empathic responsiveness is unknown. This paper describes the differences in trait empathy in one independent and one interdependent society (i.e., United States and Iran respectively). The analysis of data collected from self-reported questionnaires answered by 326 adults indicated a significant difference in the cognitive component of empathy concerning participants’ affiliation to either egocentric or socio-centric society: Iranian participants with interdependent cultural norms, reported higher cognitive empathy compared to (...)

    Fault Visualization and Identification in Fault Seismic Attribute Volumes: Implications for Fault Geometric Characterization.Audun Libak, Behzad Alaei & Anita Torabi - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (2):B1-B16.
    Fault seismic attribute volumes represent an efficient and objective way to visualize and identify faults in seismic cubes. Fault geometric attributes such as length, height, and fault segmentation can be extracted from such fault seismic attribute volumes. We evaluate the strengths and pitfalls of using coherence volumes for characterization of fault geometry. The results are obtained using a database from the Barents Sea, which contains 35 3D seismic cubes, together with conceptual synthetic seismic models. A high signal-to-noise ratio is a (...)

    Seismic Imaging of Fault Damaged Zone and its Scaling Relation with Displacement.Behzad Alaei & Anita Torabi - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (4):SP83-SP93.
    We have studied seismically resolved damaged zone of normal faults in siliciclastic rocks of the Norwegian continental shelf. The workflow we have developed reveals structural details of the fault damaged zone and in particular, the subsidiary synthetic faults, horsetail at the main lateral fault tips at different depths and fault bend. These subsidiary or small fault segments form an area that can be clearly followed laterally and vertically. We call this area fault damaged zone. The studied damaged zone on seismic (...)

    The Dilemma of Accountability for Professionals: A Challenge for Mainstream Management Theories.Maliheh Mansouri & Julie I. Adair Rowney - 2014 - Journal of Business Ethics 123 (1):1-12.
    Professional institutions are increasingly confronted by fiscal constraints and political pressures to improve and increase their accountability in a competitive consumer-driven market. Accordingly, the need to ensure efficiency and accountability is of strategic importance. This article reports on a qualitative study of medical professionals that assessed the utility of financial incentives and external control methods derived from agency theory to ensure accountability of professionals. The authors argue that approaches derived from stewardship and institutional theories can extend the principal–agent perspective to (...)

    Recruitment Processes in Academia: Does the Emperor Have Any Clothes?Behzad Ataie-Ashtiani - 2016 - Science and Engineering Ethics 22 (5):1565-1568.
    The final outcome of promotion and recruitment processes in universities should be conventional and plausible by the members of the relevant scientific community, to affirm that the processes have been competitive and fair. The objective of this opinion letter is to make a plea for the importance of the post-auditing and quantitative assessment of the selection criteria. It is shown that for an example case the outcome of the post-audit does not look reasonable from an external point of view, at (...)

    An Iranian Perspective on Patients' Rights.Soodabeh Joolaee, Alireza Nikbakht-Nasrabadi, Zohreh Parsa-Yekta, Verena Tschudin & Iman Mansouri - 2006 - Nursing Ethics 13 (5):488-502.
    The aim of this phenomenological research study carried out in Iran was to capture the meaning of patients' rights from the lived experiences of patients and their companions. To achieve this, 12 semistructured interviews were conducted during 2005 in a teaching hospital in Tehran with patients and/or their companions. In addition, extensive field notes were compiled during the interviews. The data were analyzed using Benner's thematic analysis. The themes captured were classified into three main categories, with certain themes identified within (...)

    Nihilism and Information Technology.Alireza Mansouri & Ali Paya - 2020 - Journal of Philosophical Theological Research 21 (4):29-54.
    Søren Kierkegaard, in his essay "The Present Age," takes a hostile stance towards the press. This is because he maintains that the press prepares the ground for the emergence of nihilism. Hubert Dreyfus extends this idea to other information technologies, especially the Internet. Since Kierkegaard-Dreyfus’ attitude towards various forms of information technology originates from philosophical anthropology and a particular conception of the meaning of life, assessing the viability of the attitude they hold requires further critical scrutiny. This paper aims to (...)

    The Velvet Revolution of Armenia, which took place in 2018, was an important event in the history of Armenia and changed the government peacefully by means of large demonstrations, rallies and marches. This historic event was covered by Armenian news media. Our goal here was to do a Discourse-Historical Analysis of the Armenian Velvet Revolution as covered by two Armenian websites: armenpress.am-the governmental website and 168.am-the non-governmental website. In our analysis we identified how the lexicon related to the Armenian Velvet (...)

    The Autonomy of Science as a Civilian Casualty of Economic Warfare: Inadvertent Censorship of Science Resulting From Unilateral Economic Sanctions.Behzad Ataie-Ashtiani & Hossein Esmaeili - 2021 - Science and Engineering Ethics 27 (4):1-9.
    Unilateral coercive international political, diplomatic, and economic sanctions are regular events of international relations and international law within the landscape of foreign affairs. However, while they may be prescribed by international law, or national legal systems, for peace and security reasons they have also been imposed for political grounds by powerful States such as the United States. The US sanctions are now targeting science, academic and university domains. When applied in this way, these sanctions violate international law, principles of human (...)

    In Silico Functional and Structural Characterization of H1N1 Influenza A Viruses Hemagglutinin, 2010–2013, Shiraz, Iran.Forogh Tavakoli, Nastaran Khodadad, Behzad Dehghani & Afagh Moattari - 2015 - Acta Biotheoretica 63 (2):183-202.
    Hemagglutinin is a major virulence factor of influenza viruses and plays an important role in viral pathogenesis. Analysis of amino acid changes, epitopes’ regions, glycosylation and phosphorylation sites have greatly contributed to the development of new generations of vaccine. The hemagglutinins of 10 selected isolates, 8 of 2010 and 2 of 2013 samples were sequenced and analyzed by several bioinformatic softwares and the results were compared with those of 3 vaccine isolates. The study detected several amino acid changes related to (...)

    An Ecological Perspective of Food Choice and Eating Autonomy Among Adolescents.Amanda M. Ziegler, Christina M. Kasprzak, Tegan H. Mansouri, Arturo M. Gregory, Rachel A. Barich, Lori A. Hatzinger, Lucia A. Leone & Jennifer L. Temple - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    Adolescence is an important developmental period marked by a transition from primarily parental-controlled eating to self-directed and peer-influenced eating. During this period, adolescents gain autonomy over their individual food choices and eating behavior in general. While parent-feeding practices have been shown to influence eating behaviors in children, little is known about how these relationships track across adolescent development as autonomy expands. The purpose of this qualitative study was to identify factors that impact food decisions and eating autonomy among adolescents. Using (...)

    Cloud Computing in Geoscience: Mysteries, Miseries, and Benefits.Dimitrios Oikonomou, Ehsan Zabihi Naeini, Behzad Alaei & Eirik Larsen - 2021 - Interpretation 9 (1):SA17-SA22.
    Cloud computing has become an integral part of our daily life and work. In the oil and gas industry, cloud computing is becoming increasingly attractive to experts, operators, and software companies. However, we believe that there is still some level of mystery for many geoscientists in what cloud computing can actually offer, what the pros and cons are, and how it is different from the preceding technologies. We attempt to explain some of the mysteries around the concept of cloud computing (...)

    Synchronization Gauges and the Principles of Special Relativity.Guido Rizzi, Matteo Luca Ruggiero & Alessio Serafini - 2004 - Foundations of Physics 34 (12):1835-1887.
    The axiomatic bases of Special Relativity Theory (SRT) are thoroughly re-examined from an operational point of view, with particular emphasis on the status of Einstein synchronization in the light of the possibility of arbitrary synchronization procedures in inertial reference frames. Once correctly and explicitly phrased, the principles of SRT allow for a wide range of “theories” that differ from the standard SRT only for the difference in the chosen synchronization procedures, but are wholly equivalent to SRT in predicting empirical facts.
