Evangelia Demerouti and Katharina Ebner publish paper in Human Resource Management

Schöller Senior Fellow Prof. Dr. Evangelia Demerouti and Schöller Fellow Katharina Ebner (with C. Roth, R. Soucek and K. Moser) published an article in Human Resource Management (A).

In their paper “Toward a Better Understanding of Self‐Regulation Promoting Interventions: When Performance Management and Job Crafting Meet”, the authors conducted a field experiment to examine the effects of two self-regulation promoting interventions – the Productivity Measurement and Enhancement Systems intervention (ProMES), a job crafting intervention, and their combination – on individual employee performance and innovation through selected process variables.

The findings suggest that while self-regulation promoting interventions increase favorable outcomes through different mechanisms their combination may unexpectedly impair relevant processes and, more generally, overwhelm employees.

Markus Nagler publishes paper inReview of Economics and Statistics

Schöller Fellow Prof. Dr. Markus Nagler (with J. Rincke and E. Winkler) published an article in the Review of Economics and Statistics (A).
In their paper “High-Pressure, High-Paying Jobs?”, the authors investigate the labor market consequences of work pressure by using worker-level survey and experimental data.
Their analysis suggests that individuals are (at least to some extent) compensated for work stress and resulting health risks in the form of higher wages. This is a novel perspective in the public debate about pressure in the workplace that so far has mainly focused on the resulting adverse health outcomes of workers.

Jan vom Brocke publishes paper in Journal of Information Technology

Schöller Senior Fellow Prof. Dr. Jan vom Brocke (with T. Grisold, W. Kremser, J. Mendling, J. Recker und B. Wurm) published an article in the Journal of Information Technology (A).
In their paper “Keeping Pace with the Digital Age: Envisioning Information Systems Research as a Platform”, the authors argue that the advent of the digital age is calling for a reconsideration of the role of theory and theorizing. Their argument rests to a considerable extent on the growing availability of digital trace data that provide increasing opportunities to make sense of the digital world. They propose to focus on establishing IS research as a platform through which researchers can collect, organize, and provide access to digital trace data from various sources to analyze contemporary socio-technical phenomena.

Schöller Fellow Trio publishes paper in Journal of Marketing

Schöller Fellow Dr. Lukas Maier, Schöller Senior Fellow Prof. Dr. Martin Schreier and Schöller Fellow PD Dr. Christian Baccarella together with Prof. Dr. Kai-Ingo Voigt (Chair of Industrial Management at the School of Business, Economics and Society at FAU) published a paper in the Journal of Marketing, one of the world’s leading A+ journals in the field of marketing.

In the paper “University Knowledge Inside: How and When University-Industry Collaborations Make New Products More Attractive to Consumers“, the team of authors demonstrates in a total of eight empirical studies that collaboration between industrial companies and universities in the development of new products is perceived positively by consumers and significantly increases the likelihood of purchasing these products. Positive effects are already evident in higher click-through rates for digital ads, e.g. on Instagram. Development cooperation between companies and universities also promotes consumers’ willingness to pay – an increase in willingness to pay of up to 65% was demonstrated in this study. In further analyses, the results will be differentiated according to whether the products are high-tech or low-tech, whether they are developed by startups or established companies, and the general attitude of consumers toward science and research.

Christian Pescher publishes paper in Marketing Science

Schöller Fellow Dr. Christian Pescher (with J. Jason Bell, Gerard J. Tellis and Johann Fueller) published a paper in Marketing Science (A+).

Crowdsourcing generates up to thousands of ideas per contest. The selection of best ideas is costly because of the limited number, objectivity, and attention of experts. Using a data set of 21 crowdsourcing contests that include 4,191 ideas, the team of authors test how artificial intelligence can assist experts in screening ideas.
