Dear Pratap,

Thank you for the post and the attachment. I had a quick read of your abstract. I was a bit surprised to find that the references were a bit dated (2002 to 2006). A quick Google check led me to the following more recent works.

All found at Google

Also kindly proof read your abstract as there are some gramatical errors. Hope you get the support you are seeking. You can see my credentials by clicking on "About us" in my signature.

I have an opinion, which is not specific to this thread.
I appreciate Nashbramhall's references; they are first rate and an absolute pleasure to read; as well as an eye-opener, especially the data collection and meticulous research; and the absolutely admirable way they have been presented !!
Before the advent of Internet and Google, it would have been almost impossible for a research student in India to lay his hands on such excellent research papers from other part of the world.
My only concern is how can one ensure that such papers are not plagiarised ?
I think UGC and Association of Universities all over the world should have a watchdog body to continuously monitor and prevent plagiarism. A copy of all Ph D theses can be uploaded centrally and authenticated claims invited from general public.
Warm regards.

Dear Pratap
It is good to see the development of a genuine research work, in your posts. Thank you so much for sharing with CiteHr members.
Hope the completion of your Pilot Study will propel you in the right direction; help you fine-tune your questionnaires and give you enough guidance and resourcefulness to warm up.
warm regards.

Dear Raj Kumar,
I appreciate your concern. There are softwares available that can be used to check for plagiarisation. In my active days, I had used Turniitin <link no longer exists - removed> and had caught students plagiarising.
I have also raised issues at CiteHr about the topic and my concern about it led me to becoming active here. I am sorry to say that it's a big problem the world over. In India it is more of a problem due to the number of private institutions who are bent on making money rather than uphold standards. May be I am generalising, I stand to be corrected.

It addresses many of my concerns.

Today I met HR Manager and Senior HR of of Fortune 500 IT company in pune.
feedback was, It is easier to get data from IT companies than others like Manufacturing and Banking or others.
because average age of workforce is 25-30,also Empolyees are more assertive and do retaliate to bullying (wrong response as per Literatuer,find training need for bullying)
Also that if questionnaire takes care of those who fake themselves as workplace bulllying victim.they were not much aware in Bullying in IT ,but Mentioned comman in there BPO IT company.also that system is avaliable where individual can inform victimization with name or Hiding his identity.(I am planning to get those as case study)
Shared one case ,where boss bullied junior, stared with disagreement on a issue and escalated to Social Humiliation by boss of junior.also reported ,victim leaving company uninformed.
Found topic important and needed.

Dear Pratap Its good to see you delving into such off-the-beaten-track topics. Wish you all the best for your new project. Warm regards.

Dear Pratap,

Thank you for the attachment. I still have problem relating your working title (To study the Mobbing of Professors at workplace in Pune's Educational institutions.), aim and methodology. What is your population? Just one college or a number of institutions?

However, given the nature of the problem, snowball sampling is the correct technique to use to get the sample.

Finally, it is not enough to list general websites; you need to say what exactly you obtained from those websites.
