Evolution of public cooperation in a monitored society with implicated punishment and within-group enforcement
Xiaojie Chen, Tatsuya Sasaki, Matjaž Perc, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: Monitoring with implicated punishment is common in human societies to avert freeriding on common goods. But is it effective in promoting public cooperation? We show that the introduction of monitoring and implicated punishment is indeed effective, as it transforms the public goods game to a coordination game, thus rendering cooperation viable in infinite and finite well-mixed populations. We also show that the addition of within-group enforcement further promotes the evolution of public cooperation. However, although the group size in this context has nonlinear effects on collective action, an intermediate group size is least conductive to cooperative behaviour. This contradicts recent field observations, where an intermediate group size was declared optimal with the conjecture that group-size effects and within-group enforcement are responsible. Our theoretical research thus clarifies key aspects of monitoring with implicated punishment in human societies, and additionally, it reveals fundamental group-size effects that facilitate prosocial collective action.

Feminist Heroines in the Selected Science Fiction (in English and Slovene) and Movies
Margit Berlič Ferlinc, 2016, master's thesis

Abstract: This master’s thesis will research heroines in popular culture in connection with the changing role of women in society. I have investigated different aspects of female characters in the selected science fiction novels and movies, their relationship towards different societies, and society’s response to them as a decisive factor of the action, and the sociological aspect of the phenomenon of strong female characters, which is probably a reflection of the changes in society. I will discuss psychological aspects of the female characters in selected science fiction and movies and how the male counterparts correspond to their relationships, as well as different religious aspects. The comparison will be between the selected texts in English and Slovene and contact points of both cultures will be sought. The development of strong female characters has been especially prominent in 21st century movie culture, so I will also compare them to some older works. I expect the growth of strong female characters in the 21st century in comparison with literature and movies of the second half of the 20th century.

Sustainable development of careers in tourism
Mitja Gorenak, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: Developing sustainable careers in the tourism sector is just as hard as achieving sustainable tourism in general. Our objective was to determine tour guides' attitude to the sustainable development of their careers by tourist agencies as those engaging them. We conducted a survey among representatives of tourist agencies (N = 34). The research showed that the economic pillar of sustainable development is perceived to be the most important when it comes to the sustainable development of careers, followed by the environmental pillar as the second and the social pillar as the least important. In order to achieve the truly sustainable development of careers, the focus must be on the social pillar of development.

Danube Region Entrepreneurship Observatory
Polona Tominc, Miroslav Rebernik, Barbara Bradač Hojnik, Karin Širec, scientific monograph

Abstract: There is no doubt about the importance of multi-country studies of entrepreneurial activity in enabling the comparison and replication of research and generating meaningful contributions to scholarship, practice and policy. This international comparison perspective is especially important when processes in each single economy are analysed against the broader global, European or regional environment. Since entrepreneurship is a complex social phenomenon, several dependencies can be understood only with comprehensive research that includes continuous positioning of national entrepreneurship in the European and global perspectives. Within Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) it is possible to compare data for more than 100 countries not only in the field of early-stage entrepreneurial activity but also in areas such as general attitudes of the adult population towards entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial intentions, etc. In this scientific monograph publication, we analyse the entrepreneurial profiles of Danube region countries, entrepreneurial intentions in the region and investigate the competition and aspirations of early-stage entrepreneurs in these countries.
Keywords: enterprises, entrepreneurship, business environment, characteristics, activities, economic development, human capital, competitivity, international comparisons, Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, Danube Region, Entrepreneurial Intentions, Entrepreneurial Growth Aspirations

Abstract: Part one presented the Slovenian entrepreneurial landscape in the year 2007. The second part compared Slovenian and EU-27 economy on various indicators. Part three analysed the process of firm entries in Slovenia while controlling for the specificities of regions and time, from 2000 to 2005. The fifth part analysed the impact of technical and cost efficiencies on firms’ income position and the relationship between supply and demand. The analysis examined tourism firms in Slovenia. The sixth part dealt with regional analysis of the early-stage entrepreneurship in Slovenia. The aim was to gain insight into developmental particularities of Slovenian family businesses and institutional support offered to family businesses in Slovenia. The seventh part examined different reasons for outsourcing according to strategic and traditional reasons. Lastly, we examined networking activities between enterprises and entrepreneurs. The empirical research revealed there are certain differences among Slovene SMEs according to their company size and gender.

Model for optimal project portfolio for the construction of railway infrastructure on corridors V and X
Anton Hauc, Majda Bastič, Lidia Jurše, Mirko Pšunder, 2010, short scientific article

Abstract: The construction of railway infrastructure should be dealt with as a national strategic developmental programme, which due to technical, geographical, logistical, and other requirements is carried out through a number of projects and represents a complex multiple project operation for investors, contractors, and other influential players. The national strategic developmental programme for the construction of the railway infrastructure is connected through programmes in neighbouring countries and EU member states to Trans-European Networks (TEN) that strategically regulate construction within the community. In the Republic of Slovenia, the construction of railway infrastructure within TEN programmes is carried out on the pan-European traffic corridors V and X within individual projects for the construction of sections and a number of supporting projects. Technical requirements, deadlines, and other TEN requirements as well as national strategic requirements and financial possibilities of the state represent basic criteria that should be taken into consideration in setting up a strategic project plan, with optimal project classification achieved through the implementation project portfolio. The current article utilised the method of multiple-criteria decision analysis to prepare the portfolio, taking into account macroeconomic and infrastructural criteria. Consequently, the results represent the basis for the preparation of an optimal financial plan with regard to financing possibilities of the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union. The article also summarised the research results regarding the formation of the project implementation process of the TEN-T network construction in the Republic of Slovenia.

Knjiga, film in igra: Adaptacijska analiza Heart of Darkness, Apocalypse Now in Spec Ops: The Line
Miha Brumec, Victor Kennedy, 2017, master's thesis

Abstract: Magistrsko delo se ukvarja z romanom Heart of Darkness ter njegovima priredbama. Delo je razdeljeno na dva dela. V prvem sestavimo teoretično ogrodje s katerim lahko opravimo analize, ki sledijo v drugem delu naloge. Vendar tega ogrodja ne gre enakomerno uporabljati zaradi značilnosti posameznih medijev, torej knjige, filma in računalniške igre. Tako so ugotovitve o gibanju kamere kot tudi o podobnih elementih omejene zgolj na vizualna medija, saj se v pisni obliki ne morejo pojaviti. Analitičen del naloge je razdeljen v tri poglavja, ki dela obravnavajo tako v zaporedju izdaj, kot v zaporedju, ki omogoča, da lahko vsako poglavje osnuje svojo analizo na ugotovitvah oz. podatkih prejšnjih poglavij. Tako moramo prvo analizirati knjigo na kateri osnujemo naš pregled filmske priredbe, ki nato služi sočasno s knjigo kot temelj na katerem lahko analiziramo računalniško igro. Primerjalne ugotovitve analiz se nato še enkrat pojavijo v sklepu.

Usage of agile SCRUM methodology on configuration management application
Željko Stanojević, 2017, master's thesis/paper

Abstract: The purpose of the master thesis is to research and determine how to successfully manage a project using agile methodology Scrum. Scrum methodology will be used to improve the functionality of existing internally developed software solutions. Scrum, being an agile methodology, is an alternative approach to the traditional waterfall methodology, and is typically used in software development. Agile methodologies help teams respond to a project’s unpredictability by using incremental, iterative way of work known as sprints. The first part of the master’s thesis presents a problem, defines goals and methods used, and the necessary tools required to achieve the objectives. The following part of the thesis presents the foundations of agile methodologies and describes the used methodology – Scrum - in detail. In the practical part, the thesis presents the existing software solution and opportunities for its improvement. We use Scrum for upgrading existing application, including all the attributes of the mentioned methodology, from team design to artifacts and events. The thesis also presents a renewed application in detail. In conclusion, by using the SWOT analysis we observe suitability for use of the Scrum methodology in the case of renewal of application and propose further changes to improve the application.
