Professor Medani Bhandari has published a paper about Coronavirus (COVID-19) titled “THE PHOBIA CORONA (COVID 19) ̶ WHAT WE CAN DO”. For the time being, it is very important and time sensitive. The main problem addressed in the paper is what we can do to stop this pandemic and what price we will have to pay for it. The author says “Responsibility for the people we are in contact should be the key element. The overwhelming amount of information in the media, contributes to the deepening of fear. People need to be aware not only of the responsibility for the lives of others, they must also re-evaluate their own lives”.

Hanna Shvindina, the “Business Ethics and Leadership” Editorial Board member, provided the seminar on bibliometric analysis for the researchers on Friday, March 27, 2020. It was aimed at sharing the knowledge about the bibliometric analysis via VosViewer software and Publish or Perish. These tools are well-known and yet few scholars use them in their research. This knowledge sharing became possible due to Professor Vincent Duffy from Purdue University who supervised and guided Hanna Shvindina in bibliometric analysis during the academic exchange within the Fulbright programme. More than 30 participants attended the seminar online and acquired knowledge about this flow of academic search.
The cooperation with Professor Vincent Duffy (Purdue University), his assistance and support in organizing the online webinar on bibliometric analysis as well as his experience are of great value for us.
