  1. Emergent Pedagogy in England: A Critical Realist Study of Structure-Agency Interactions in Higher Education.Bushra Sharar - 2015 - New York, NY: Routledge.
    This book aims to show how a meta-theory of critical realism can be applied to research about pedagogy in the changing landscape of higher education in England. It introduces some of the key ideas of critical realism, and its potential to clarify complex issues that arise in research. This book draws on a critical realist study of structure/agency interactions in three contrasting higher education institutions. Seven case studies of lecturers, over the three universities, are considered to explore the interplay of (...)

    How should we conduct ourselves? Critical realism and Aristotelian teleology: a framework for the development of virtues in pedagogy and curriculum.Bushra Sharar - 2018 - Journal of Critical Realism 17 (3):262-281.
    ABSTRACTFaced with the marketization of Higher Education in England, pedagogy is under pressure in ways that often undermine lecturers’ deeply held values. For instance, this pressure results in the reduction of significant aspects of teaching to narrow metrics and requires universities to operate within intrusive structures that subordinate their pedagogical aims to profit-orientated objectives. In this paper, I analyse the way that people can preserve their agency in this pedagogical context. I guide my analysis with a framework that combines critical (...)

    Ethical considerations of recruiting migrant workers for clinical trials.Bushra Zafreen Amin - 2021 - Journal of Medical Ethics 47 (6):434-436.
    Migrant workers in dormitories are an attractive source of clinical trial participants. However, they are a vulnerable population that has been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Guidelines on recruiting vulnerable populations for clinical trials have long been established, but ethical considerations for migrant workers have been neglected. This article aims to highlight and explain what researchers recruiting migrant workers must be cognizant of, and offers recommendations to address potential concerns. The considerations raised in this article include: three types of (...)

    We were in the kitchen, my mother and I, when she turned to me and said,“Did you know Amreekans keep medicine in the bathroom?” I waited, not quite sure where she was going with this. She looked at me as if I was slow and then continued,“They keep it in the bathroom, and then they eat it.” There was triumph in her voice when she added,“And they say we're dirty.”. [REVIEW]Bushra Rehman - 2009 - In Olga Gershenson Barbara Penner (ed.), Ladies and Gents. pp. 189.

  10. Novel Numerical Estimates of the Pneumonia and Meningitis Epidemic Model via the Nonsingular Kernel with Optimal Analysis.Saima Rashid, Bushra Kanwal, Abdulaziz Garba Ahmad, Ebenezer Bonyah & S. K. Elagan - 2022 - Complexity 2022:1-25.
    In this article, we investigated a deterministic model of pneumonia-meningitis coinfection. Employing the Atangana–Baleanu fractional derivative operator in the Caputo framework, we analyze a seven-component approach based on ordinary differential equations. Furthermore, the invariant domain, disease-free as well as endemic equilibria, and the validity of the model’s potential results are all investigated. According to controller design evaluation and modelling, the modulation technique devised is effective in diminishing the proportion of incidences in various compartments. A fundamental reproducing value is generated by (...)

    USAD: An Intelligent System for Slang and Abusive Text Detection in PERSO-Arabic-Scripted Urdu.Nauman Ul Haq, Mohib Ullah, Rafiullah Khan, Arshad Ahmad, Ahmad Almogren, Bashir Hayat & Bushra Shafi - 2020 - Complexity 2020:1-7.
    The use of slang, abusive, and offensive language has become common practice on social media. Even though social media companies have censorship polices for slang, abusive, vulgar, and offensive language, due to limited resources and research in the automatic detection of abusive language mechanisms other than English, this condemnable act is still practiced. This study proposes USAD, a lexicon-based intelligent framework to detect abusive and slang words in Perso-Arabic-scripted Urdu Tweets. Furthermore, due to the nonavailability of the standard dataset, we (...)

    To Donate a Kidney: Public Perspectives from Pakistan.Farhat Moazam, Aamir M. Jafarey & Bushra Shirazi - 2013 - Bioethics 27 (3):76-83.
    Despite the majority opinion of Muslim jurists that organ donation is permitted in Sharia, surveys indicate continuing resistance by lay Muslims, especially to donating organs following death. Pakistan, a country with 165 million Muslims, currently reliant on live donors, is considering steps to establish deceased donor programs which will require public acceptance and support. This article analyzes the results of in-depth interviews with 105 members of the public focusing on opinions and knowledge about juristic rulings regarding kidney donations, donor-family dynamics (...)

    SiFSO: Fish Swarm Optimization-Based Technique for Efficient Community Detection in Complex Networks.Yasir Ahmad, Mohib Ullah, Rafiullah Khan, Bushra Shafi, Atif Khan, Mahdi Zareei, Abdallah Aldosary & Ehab Mahmoud Mohamed - 2020 - Complexity 2020:1-9.
    Efficient community detection in a complex network is considered an interesting issue due to its vast applications in many prevailing areas such as biology, chemistry, linguistics, social sciences, and others. There are several algorithms available for network community detection. This study proposed the Sigmoid Fish Swarm Optimization algorithm to discover efficient network communities. Our proposed algorithm uses the sigmoid function for various fish moves in a swarm, including Prey, Follow, Swarm, and Free Move, for better movement and community detection. The (...)

    Social media particularly Facebook has become a popular platform amongst medical professionals for both social and professional interactions. However, given the nature of such platforms, their use raises ethical concerns including violation of patient privacy and blurring of classical professional and patient-physician relationship boundaries. In order to investigate the pattern of Facebook usage among medical professionals in Pakistan, a mixed method study was conducted at five medical institutions in three different cities including Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. 806 participants, including 87 (...)
