1. Hoffmann, Elizabeth A.. "Driving Street Justice: Cabdrivers as Self-Perceived Distributors of Justice, Revenge, and Rescue" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society, J.W.

Abstract: This study examines workplace deviance in the taxicab industry, specifically drivers’ acts of “revenge” and “rescue.” I explore the tension between the cab drivers’ goals and the goals and rules of the cab companies. The cab drivers creatively worked to further their own goals of justice and safety by resolving disputes through direct, more expeditious self-help. Sometimes drivers engaged in workplace deviance alone, as individuals, while other times they acted as groups. By including altruistic acts of “rescue,” this research expands on earlier empirical studies of workplace deviance which studied only negative workplace deviance.

Abstract: This study presents a model that allows the anticipation of moments of economic and financial difficulties of the electricity sector distributors in Brazil. It uses a logistic regression model considering several financial indicators as independent variables. In addition, it was used as the dependent variable a binary indicator that points to the times when the distributor was seized by the National Electricity Agency of Brazil (ANEEL) or had, as a result in the period, negative equity or tiny equity ratio. Then, it is possible to conclude that this model increases significantly the forecasting power of bankruptcy in the electricity sector.

3. Gallupe, Owen. and Bouchard, Martin. "Mapping the Middle: A Social Network Analysis of Middle Market Distributors" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, San Francisco Marriott, San Francisco, California, <Not Available>. 2019-11-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p432462_index.html>

Abstract: Much research on drug distribution networks focus on high level international smugglers, and street level dealers. Little attention has been paid to middle level distributors despite the key role that they play in ensuring drugs make it from the point of entry in a country to those who sell the final product to users. We focus on this important middle level among a large sample of convicted traffickers in the UK (n=34 of n=187 total). Using a special case in social networks analysis (two-mode networks) we map connection trends between national and local wholesalers and the various roles that they access throughout the network. Core roles are found to be those closer in the chain: other national and local wholesalers (partners) plus retailers. Interestingly, those in contact with many positions do not necessarily have the best connections. Four of the top seven most highly connected individuals (high degree centrality) have links with positions that do not carry much influence (low eigenvector centrality). Some more efficient cases have relatively low degree centrality but are connected to the core three positions. By managing their contacts in this way, these mid-level distributors are able to handle multiple drugs, in larger quantities.

4. Wendel, Travis., Khan, Bilal., Dombrowski, Kirk. and Curtis, Ric. "Using Respondent Driven Sampling to Gather Social Network Data from Methamphetamine Users and Distributors in New York City" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, PA, <Not Available>. 2019-11-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p373656_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Little research has examined methamphetamine use and distribution in New York City; existing studies have mostly concentrated on methamphetamine use as a risk factor for HIV transmission among men who have sex with men; use by other groups, the structure and organization of the market, the implications of market structure for drug use patterns, and the effects of methamphetamine markets on the wider community, including violence, have gone largely unstudied. Previous studies of drug markets have been limited by their data-collection methods, and by their conceptual models of drug distribution, which have typically not examined illicit drug distribution as a social network phenomenon. This presentation reports on a study recruiting 200 methamphetamine users and distributors in New York City using Respondent Driven Sampling, gathering social network data concerning methamphetamine use and distribution from study participants. The study developed additional novel research techniques including masked network elicitation techniques, network random sampling techniques, and qualitative/quantitative interview techniques. The study used the new Estimating Connectivity from Spanning Tree Completions techniques for network completion developed by the John Jay Social Networks Research Group to recover the ambient network topology from the recruiting trees produced by Respondent Driven Sampling.
