1. Matusiak, Matthew. and Jurek, Alicia. "Does Agency Type Matter? A Comparison of Chiefs’ Perceptions of the Institutional Environment across Three Agency Types" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology – 72nd Annual Meeting, Hilton New Orleans Riverside, New Orleans, LA, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1147036_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: Research has found that chiefs’ perceptions of the institutional environment impacts how chiefs define and prioritize agency goals. Previous literature assessing this impact has focused solely on local police departments. It is reasonable, however, to assume that different types of agencies prioritize sectors of their institutional environment differently leading to the prioritization of different goals. The research looks to identify the differences between Independent School District (ISD), specialized, and municipal police departments in perceptions of their institutional environment and subsequent goal setting. Results do indicate variation across agency types. Institutional theory is utilized to frame our discussion of findings.

Abstract: How do we motivate the concept of error in hypothesis testing? How can we help statistics students understand the meaning of Type I and Type II errors, the likelihood of each error for a given test, and the connection between that likelihood and computing p-values or selecting decision criteria in classical tests? Often the probabilities α and β are simply mysterious Greek symbols whose definitions aren’t meaningful because students haven’t considered how errors can occur during testing or how they might be controlled. The challenge of teaching about error is now easier because of ready access to probability simulations that take advantage of improved random number features on graphing calculators.

In this talk, I shall demonstrate how I develop the concept of error in an applied statistics course via a calculator exploration that uses repeated simulations of a test with different decision criteria and both true and false null hypotheses. I’ll provide a worksheet that helps students discover the types of errors, assess the probability associated with each, and improve their understanding of this critical feature of hypothesis testing.

Abstract: Through content analysis of 331 cover news stories randomly sampled from two leading but competing news weeklies with top circulation in Hong Kong during the past 20 years, this paper investigated the effects of media type, news topic and celebrity type on the use of media frames in popular journalism.
The results yielded significant effects of news topic and celebrity type on the use of media frames, except for media type. Overall, human interest frame is most frequently used in Hong Kong popular journalism, followed by economic frame, conflict/violence frame, attribution of responsibility, sexuality, social injustice and morality frame.
It is observed that Hong Kong popular journalism focuses intensively on celebrity news, with achieved celebrity as the main concern. There is an increasing entrance of ordinary people into celebrity system, which are highly associated with sexuality frame, while economic and social injustice frames are most frequently used in ascribed celebrity, and morality frame are most used in coverage of ordinary people rather than celebrity. It is noteworthy that the human interest frame are used generally frequently across all news topics and celebrity types, with the peak in coverage of attributed celebrity and ordinary people.
News topic worked as an efficient mediator in the effect of celebrity type on the use of media frames. It is noteworthy that social injustice frame is most frequently used in political/military news but least in entertainment news; sexuality frame are most used in entertainment news while least in economic news.

Abstract: In a 2x4 between-subjects experimental design, this study explored the impact of different types of journalists (professional and citizen) and use of different sources in their news stories (official, unofficial, both, and none) on the credibility of reporters, their articles, and organizations for which they work or publish. In contradiction to previous literature, the results indicate that participants did not perceive professional reporters or their articles as more credible than citizen reporters and their articles. On the other hand, participants distinguished between different types of news organizations when it came to the perceptions of their credibility. Professional medium (Associated Press) was perceived as significantly more credible than citizen journalism website (NowPublic.com). The results are interpreted in light of branding theory. A need for further research in order to account for media brand influence on perceptions of organizational credibility is indicated.

Keywords: news media credibility, professional journalist, citizen journalist, media brand, use of sources

Abstract: Trust, as a dynamic social reality, should be examined within different types of society. Based on the various scholarly typologies of trust in literature, this paper distinguishes three “ideal types”(see: Weber, 1978) of trust which provide us with descriptions of trust. Still, to explain trust, we suggest using pure concepts or “normal types”(see: Tonnies, 1957). We turn to the trust in family and community to understand how trust in society, at large, evolves. We finally conclude that cross-national variations in trust should be attributed more to the macro-level social forces, such as family structure, neighborhood characteristics and sociopolitical environment.
