Abstract: The developed literature on national identity and the media lacks both a firm evidentiary base for many core claims and benchmark data on media impacts at the level of the individual. This paper makes use of a recent Australian national sample survey to explore the strength, direction and causes of media effects upon national identification. Results show that conventional media technologies and the consumption of lowbrow genres tend to strengthen orthodox national identity. By contrast the Internet and highbrow genres lead to a more inclusive sense of national belonging. Genre effects are generally stronger than technology effects. Media effects are robust and of a comparable magnitude to those of familiar socio-demographic control variables.

Abstract: One of the most important policy issues for governments is the issue of information autonomy and control over its public records and related electronic document formats. This article argues governments should switch away from proprietary standards to open standards for documents. Several competing document formats are analyzed from an economic, institutional, social, and technological basis. The resulting analysis finds that governments should focus on adopting the OpenDocument Format. The article next suggests several strategies governments and public interest groups can take to move towards wider adoption of open standards for document formats.

Abstract: C. finmarchicus (redfeed) is a marine resource that will soon be harvested in the NE Atlantic. Developing an eco-system based management regime for this species of plankton that has positive interplay with both national and international cooperation efforts in the area is critical. This paper guides this future redfeed regime thorough the stages of regime formation by introducing six important elements of three different stages of regime formation as identified by Young (1998). It is found that the future regime has already commenced the agenda formation stage and will not move on until technical challenges have been resolved, which will allow it to move on to the negotiation stage. The operationalization stage is suggested to be the stage of least resistance, given the culture of cooperation in the North East Atlantic on marine issues.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effectiveness and reliability of three different scale formats: Wang’s modified Likert Scale Format (WLSF) and Wang’s modified Harter’s Structured Alternative Format (WSAF) with 4- and 6-Category. The data used in this study was obtained from 521 elementary and secondary school students in Dalian, China. Each participant answered the 106-item questionnaires in three scale formats. The raw data was transferred into Rasch measures by using WINSTEPS. These Rasch measures were then analyzed through t-test and ANOVA. Reliability for each subscale and item structure were also obtained from Rasch analyses. The results showed that all three scale formats were reliable and sensitive with relatively stable structure. Students perceived themselves highest in WSAF with 4-category.
