    Prevalence of Child Marriage Among Bangladeshi Women and Trend of Change Over Time.Md Golam Hossain, Rashidul Alam Mahumud & Aik Saw - 2016 - Journal of Biosocial Science 48 (4):530-538.
    SummaryMany Bangladeshi women marry early, and many marry before the legal age of 18 years. This practice has been associated with a higher risk of health and medical morbidities, and also early pregnancy with higher pre- and postnatal complications. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence, and factors associated with, child marriage among Bangladeshi women using multiple binary logistic regression analysis of data from the BDHS-2011. Further analysis on the trend of age at first marriage was performed (...)

    Understanding Communication of Sustainability Reporting: Application of Symbolic Convergence Theory.Mohammed Hossain, Md Tarikul Islam, Mahmood Ahmed Momin, Shamsun Nahar & Md Samsul Alam - 2019 - Journal of Business Ethics 160 (2):563-586.
    The purpose of this paper is to investigate the nature of rhetoric and rhetorical strategies that are implicit in the standalone sustainability reporting of the top 24 companies of the Fortune 500 Global. We adopt Bormann’s :396–407, 1972) SCT framework to study the rhetorical situation and how corporate sustainability reporting messages can be communicated to the audience. The SCT concepts in the sustainability reporting’s communication are subject to different types of legitimacy strategies that are used by corporations as a validity (...)

    Towards Understanding Stakeholder Salience Transition and Relational Approach to ‘Better’ Corporate Social Responsibility: A Case for a Proposed Model in Practice.Michael O. Erdiaw-Kwasie, Khorshed Alam & Md Shahiduzzaman - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics 144 (1):85-101.
    Management and business literature affirm the role played by stakeholders in corporate social responsibility practices as crucial, but what constitutes a true business–society partnership remains relatively unexplored. This paper aims to improve scholarly and management understanding beyond the usual managers’ perceptions on salience attributes, to include how stakeholders can acquire missing attributes to inform a meaningful partnership. In doing this, a model is proposed which conceptualises CSR practices and outcomes within the frameworks of stakeholder salience via empowerment, sustainable corporate social (...)

    Near-Surface Characterization Using Traveltime and Full-Waveform Inversion with Vertical and Horizontal Component Seismic Data.Md Iftekhar Alam - 2019 - Interpretation: SEG 7 (1):T141-T154.
    Seismic imaging of the shallow subsurface can be very challenging when reflections are absent and the data are dominated by ground roll. I analyzed the transmission coda to produce fine-scale, interpretable vertical and horizontal component seismic velocity models using full-waveform inversion. Application of FWI is tested through imaging two buried targets. The first target is a pair of well-documented utility pipes with known diameters and burial depths. The second target is a poorly documented former location of the pipe, which is (...)

Repeated Administration of High Dose Caffeine Induces Oxidative Damage of Liver in Rat: Health and Ethical Implications.Nasrin Akhter, Ashraful Alam, Md Anower Hussain Mian, Hasan Mahmud Reza, Darryl Macer & Saidul Islam - 2018 - Eubios Journal of Asian and International Bioethics 28 (4):104-111.
    Caffeine, a known CNS stimulant is given as an adjunct component in most abused drugs which could be fatal with repeated administration in many circumstances. This paper presents a study to investigate the effect of repeated administration of caffeine at high dose on rat liver, and discusses ethical and policy issues of caffeine use. Long Evans rats were treated with pure caffeine solution in distilled water through intragastric route once daily for consecutive 56 days. Three groups of rats recognized as (...)

    Synthetic Core From Conventional Logs: A New Method of Interpretation for Identification of Key Reservoir Properties.Mahbub Alam, Latif Ibna-Hamid, Joan Embleton & Larry Lines - 2015 - Interpretation: SEG 3 (1):SA1-SA14.
    We developed a unique method to generate reservoir attributes by creating an artificial core for those wells that have no core, but that have gamma, neutron, and density logs. We examined sedimentary facies distributions, reservoir attributes, and mechanical parameters of the rock for noncored wells to increase the data density and improve the understanding of the reservoir. This method eventually helps to improve high-resolution 3D geocellular models, geomechanical models, and reservoir simulation in reservoir characterization. Artificial or synthetic cores are created (...)

    Attitudes Towards Business Ethics of Business Students in Malaysia.Kazi Firoz Alam - 1995 - Journal of Business Ethics 14 (4):309 - 313.
    The main objective of this paper is to assess the attitude of a group of Malaysian business students towards business ethics. The survey results indicate that the respondents in general are of the opinion that the businesses in Malaysia consider ethics as secondary. A greater emphasis on ethical values in the business curricular has been strongly supported by the respondents. Moreover, the majority of the respondents believe that moral/ethical education and top management attitudes are the most important factors influencing ethical (...)

    Business Ethics in New Zealand Organisations: Views From the Middle and Lower Level Managers. [REVIEW]Kazi Fioz Alam - 1999 - Journal of Business Ethics 22 (2):145 - 153.
    This study is carried out to assess the state of business ethics in New Zealand organisations from the point view of middle and lower level managers. The survey results clearly indicate that companies in New Zealand give low priorities to ethics with other values in the corporate culture. A significant number of respondents also believe that pressures from the top to achieve results and the organisational climate and ruthless competition help create an unethical environment. A greater emphasis on ethical content (...)

    Interpretation of Geologic Facies in Seismic Volume Using Key Rock Elastic Properties and High-Definition Facies Templates.Mahbub Alam, Sabita Makoon-Singh, Joan Embleton, David Gray & Larry Lines - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (2):SE11-SE27.
    We have developed a deterministic workflow in mapping the small-scale subseismic geologic facies and reservoir properties from conventional poststack seismic data. The workflow integrated multiscale data to estimate rock properties such as porosity, permeability, and grain size from the core data; effective porosity, resistivity, and fluid saturations using petrophysical analyses from the log data; and rock elastic properties from the log and poststack seismic data. Rock properties, such as incompressibility, rigidity, and density are linked to the fine-particle-volume ranges of different (...)

    Perceptions of Business Ethics in a Multicultural Community: The Case of Malaysia. [REVIEW]Md Zabid Abdul Rashid & Jo Ann Ho - 2003 - Journal of Business Ethics 43 (1-2):75 - 87.
    Leaders and managers of today''s multinational corporations face a plethora of problems and issues directly attributable to the fact that they are operating in an international context. With work-sites, plants and/or customers based in another country, or even several countries, representing a vast spectrum of cultural differences, international trade and offshore operations, coupled with increased globalisation in respect to political, social and economic realities, contribute to new dilemmas that these leaders must deal with. Not the least of these being a (...)

    Convergence of Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Governance in Weak Economies: The Case of Bangladesh.Mia Mahmudur Rahim & Shawkat Alam - 2014 - Journal of Business Ethics 121 (4):1-14.
    The convergence of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and corporate governance (CG) has changed the corporate accountability mechanism. This has developed a socially responsible ‘corporate self-regulation’, a synthesis of governance and responsibility in the companies of strong economies. However, unlike in the strong economies, this convergence has not been visible in the companies of weak economies, where the civil society groups are unorganised, regulatory agencies are either ineffective or corrupt and the media and non-governmental organisations do not mirror the corporate conscience.

    The Future Models of Arab Political Economy.Masudul Alam Choudhury - 2011 - World Futures 67 (6):437 - 448.
    Three distinct models of political economy are articulated in this article to chart out the possible politico-economic futures of the Arab World. Of these, the present predicaments of the revolutionizing Arab populace are argued to have been caused by the continuance of the wrong social choices. It depended for a long time now on the alienating model of differentiation and alienation of the Arab nations by their rulers, and by their uncritical immersing in the equally debilitating globalization agenda. Two models (...)

    Does Absence Matter?Mary K. Shenk, Kathrine Starkweather, Howard C. Kress & Nurul Alam - 2013 - Human Nature 24 (1):76-110.
    This paper examines the effects of three different types of father absence on the timing of life history events among women in rural Bangladesh. Age at marriage and age at first birth are compared across women who experienced different father presence/absence conditions as children. Survival analyses show that daughters of fathers who divorced their mothers or deserted their families have consistently younger ages at marriage and first birth than other women. In contrast, daughters whose fathers were labor migrants have consistently (...)

    Commodities in Economics: Loving or Hating Complexity.M. Shahid Alam - 2016 - Economic Thought 5 (1):1.
    A review of economic thought since the sixteenth century reveals two streams of economic discourse, dirigisme and laissez-faire. Starting with the mercantilists, dirigiste approaches to economics embrace the real-world complexity of commodities that often differ greatly in attributes that are growth- and rent- augmenting. Most importantly, this means that free trade is likely to be polarising: it concentrates growth- and rent-augmenting commodities in countries that already enjoy a head start in these commodities. Advanced countries, therefore, support laissez-faire, while lagging countries (...)
