This study examined self related subordinate variables as moderators of relationships between supervisors' leadership behaviours (transformational as well as active corrective transactional leadership) and subordinates' innovative behaviour and task performance. Based on behavioural plasticity and self monitoring theory, we hypothesized that these… (More)
In this paper, we obtain new existence results for multiple positive solutions of a delay singular differential boundary-value problem. Our main tool is the fixed point index method.
Retraction The Publisher and Editor regretfully retract this article  because the peer-review process was inappropriately influenced and compromised. As a result, the scientific integrity of the article cannot be guaranteed. A systematic and detailed investigation suggests that a third party was involved in supplying fabricated details of potential peer… (More)
BACKGROUND To compare the clinical outcomes of external fixator (EF) and intramedullary nails (IN) in the treatment of open tibial fractures. METHODS We searched seven electronic databases (PubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE, OVID, Cochrane library, CNKI, and CBM) for trials of tibial fracture fixation published from 1980 to 2013. The indicators including… (More)
In this article, we study the existence of sign-changing solutions for some second-order impulsive boundary-value problem with a sub-linear condition at infinity. To obtain the results we use the Leray-Schauder degree and the upper and lower solution method.
