Abstract null null This article examines the knowledge structure of the journal Technology Forecasting and Social Change (TFSC) from its inception in 1969 until 2020. In this paper we argue that the structure of knowledge in the field of technological forecasting is more complex than a topic model – a bag of words – can in fact effectively reveal. Therefore we propose and demonstrate a hierarchical model that selectively combines topics at varying levels of generality. The resultant analysis, wh...

Abstract null null Overall, the literature strongly validates the Environmental Kuznets Curve hypothesis and the decoupling of the economy regarding energy intensity and raw materials. However, there is no assessment of whether such evidence derives from the non-linearities of macroeconomic fundamentals from considering a simultaneous supply-demand market perspective of material flows. Therefore, using a sample of 40 countries, we estimated a Panel Smooth Transition Regression model for the peri...

Techno-economic modelling is an important tool in evidence-building, futures assessment and decision-making in policy for socio-technical systems. However, critical assessment of the fit of sophisticated models into a decision-making context is often hidden or overlooked. Using the case of a national infrastructure systems model, this paper connects conceptions of infrastructure governance to techno-economic modelling assessing future infrastructure performance. Analysis of modelling input to a ...

Abstract null null Airbnb is the largest accommodation provider in the world. Its activity has lowered the cost of travelling, while providing owners of properties with a better way to monetize their idle assets. However, controversy has arisen due to the externalities created by home-sharing platforms, namely gentrification and touristification, that reduce livability of spaces affected by their activity. We look into the effect of Airbnb on long-term rental prices in the city of Madrid in 2019...

This is a nascent yet critical field of study because initial inquiries have confirmed the significant adverse implications of smartphone and social media use for employee well-being and productivity. Acknowledging the need to better explicate the consequences of the so-called ‘dark side’ of social media use at wo...
