Publications Database

Welcome to the new Schulich Peer-Reviewed Publication Database!

The database is currently in beta-testing and will be updated with more features as time goes on. In the meantime, stakeholders are free to explore our faculty’s numerous works. The left-hand panel affords the ability to search by the following:

  • Faculty Member’s Name;
  • Area of Expertise;
  • Whether the Publication is Open-Access (free for public download);
  • Journal Name; and
  • Date Range.

At present, the database covers publications from 2012 to 2020, but will extend further back in the future. In addition to listing publications, the database includes two types of impact metrics: Altmetrics and Plum. The database will be updated annually with most recent publications from our faculty.

If you have any questions or input, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Blair, C.W., Elliot, R., Hwang, Y., Money, R.B. and Rungtusanatham, M. (2020). "Managing Critical Spare Parts Supply Within a Buyer-Supplier Dyad: Buyer Preferences for Ownership and Placement", Journal of Business Logistics, 41(2), 111-128.

Abstract Despite the criticality and expense of spare parts, many firms lack a coherent strategy for ensuring needed supply of spare parts. Moreover, scientific research regarding a comprehensive spare parts strategy is sparse in comparison with direct material. Our research identifies and tests three literature‐based, theoretically anchored attributes that influence a buyer's preference for inventory ownership and inventory placement when managing the stock of a critical spare part. Our findings indicate that item specificity and item supply uncertainty are useful in predicting a buyer's preference for managing the inventory of a critical spare part. Furthermore, we find that buyers have (1) a strong preference for consignment‐based inventory management approaches, (2) a bias against inventory speculation despite its use in practice and analytical models, and (3) a strong preference for inventory postponement when the level of supply uncertainty is low.

Gunalay, Y. and Yeomans, J.S. (2018). "A Simultaneous, Simulation-Optimization Modelling-to-Generate-Alternatives Approach for Stochastic Water Resources Management Decision-Making", International Journal of Advancement in Engineering Technology, Management and Applied Science, 3(1), 57-73.

Abstract Environmental policy formulation can prove complicated when the various system components contain considerable degrees of stochastic uncertainty. In addition, there are invariably unmodelled issues, not apparent at the time a model is constructed, that can greatly impact the acceptability of its solutions. While a mathematically optimal solution may be the best solution for the modelled problem, it is frequently not the best solution for the real problem. Consequently, it is generally preferable to create several good alternatives that provide different approaches and perspectives to the same problem. This study shows how a computationally efficient simulation-optimization (SO) approach that combines evolutionary optimization with simulation can be used to generate multiple policy alternatives that satisfy required system criteria and are maximally different in decision space. The efficacy of this stochastic modelling-to-generate-alternatives approach is demonstrated on a waste management planning case. Since SO techniques can be adapted to model a wide variety of problem types in which system components are stochastic, the practicality of this approach can be extended into many other operational and strategic planning applications containing significant sources of uncertainty.

Bell, C., Fiksenbaum, L., Greenglass, E.R. and Marjanovic, Z. (2011). "Psychometric Evaluation of the Financial Threat Scale (FTS) in the Context of the Great Recession", Journal of Economic Psychology, 36, 1-10.

Abstract In the current economic downturn, people are fearful, uncertain, and preoccupied about how the recession affects them, their loved ones, and their collective futures. In short, they feel threatened by the stability and security of their personal finances. This study examined the psychometric properties of the Financial Threat Scale (FTS), a 5-item scale which was designed to measure these feelings. Data were collected in Canada at the height of the recession as part of a larger international investigation on the economic downturn and psychological health. Results showed the FTS is unidimensional and highly reliable. The FTS’ validity was supported by showing its relations with (1) psychological health outcomes, financial situation measures, and individual differences measures, all in the expected directions. The FTS also showed incremental validity by accounting for variance in psychological health outcomes above-and-beyond that of either the financial situation measures or individual differences measures. The theoretical and practical implications of the FTS are discussed.
