  1. Navigating competing institutional logics in a developing economy

    Navigating competing institutional logics in a developing economy

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Africa Journal of Management
    This paper examines how senior managers in a developing economy, Ethiopia, navigate between, and draw upon, the competing logics of ‘state’ and ‘market’ when seeking to explain their firm’s business strategies. This fault-line is especially critical in such contexts. The...
  2. Stability analysis of grain yield of tef (<em>Eragrostis tef</em>) using the mixed model approach

    Stability analysis of grain yield of tef (<em>Eragrostis tef</em>) using the mixed model approach

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Multi-environment trials are usually used to assess the grain yield stability of genotypes. Most of the common stability measures such as Finlay and Wilkinson (1963), Eberhart and Russell (1966) and Shukla (1972), can be accommodated by a linear mixed model...
  3. Ridge regression technique to determine the environmental influences on tef (<em>Eragrostis tef</em>) grain yield

    Ridge regression technique to determine the environmental influences on tef (<em>Eragrostis tef</em>) grain yield

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Tef grain yield is dependent on a number of component characters such as plant height and panicle length. These characters and consequently yield are governed by a large number of factors including environmental factors. The objective of this paper was...
  4. The Structure of Parental Bonding in South African Students

    The Structure of Parental Bonding in South African Students

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    The Parental Bonding Instrument (PBI: Parker, Tupling & Brown, 1979) offers a practical way of conceptualizing parental experiences. In the present study, PBI scores of 522 students from a South African university were factor analyzed, yielding a three-factor structure for...
  5. Psychosocial Correlates of Smoking Behaviour Among Students at a Historically Black University

    Psychosocial Correlates of Smoking Behaviour Among Students at a Historically Black University

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    This study examined the influence of family structure and functioning on the smoking behavior of students attending a historically Black university. Participants were 316 students (average age = 21.2 years) at a South African university campus. They completed a smoking...
  6. Local connectedness in merotopic spaces

    Local connectedness in merotopic spaces

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    In this paper uniformly locally uniformly connected merotopic spaces are studied. It turns out that their structural behaviour is essentially similar to that one of locally connected topological spaces. The introduced concept is also investigated for spaces of functions between...
  7. Seasonal habitat and diet partitioning between two sympatric bovid species in Pendjari Biosphere Reserve (northern Benin): waterbuck and western kob

    Seasonal habitat and diet partitioning between two sympatric bovid species in Pendjari Biosphere Reserve (northern Benin): waterbuck and western kob

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Niche theory suggests differential use of shared resources facilitates coexistence of species in a community. In this study we used the faecal stable isotope analysis with observations along transect lines perpendicular to the Pendjari River. This was to examine seasonal...
  8. HIV/AIDS among pastoralists and refugees in north-east Africa: a neglected problem

    HIV/AIDS among pastoralists and refugees in north-east Africa: a neglected problem

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    The eight member states (Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda) of the Intergovernmental Authority for Development (IGAD) have the largest proportions of cross-border mobile pastoralists and refugees in Africa. Although all IGAD countries have had national...
  9. Factorial invariance and latent mean differences of the Beck Depression Inventory – second edition (BDI-II) across gender in South African university students

    Factorial invariance and latent mean differences of the Beck Depression Inventory – second edition (BDI-II) across gender in South African university students

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    This study examined the measurement invariance of scores from the BDI-II as well as the differences in latent mean scores by gender. Participants were 919 South African university students (females = 72%). They completed the BDI-II, which is a measure...
  10. Prevalence of HIV and other infections and injection behaviours among people who inject drugs in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

    Prevalence of HIV and other infections and injection behaviours among people who inject drugs in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Background: Ethiopia is one of the sub-Saharan African countries most affected by HIV/AIDS. However, the country lacks data describing the extent of the epidemic among people who inject drugs (PWID). Thus, a bio-behavioural study was conducted in 2015 to generate...
