Few studies have examined the mediating role of emotional intelligence in the relationship between perceived social support and cyberbullying victimization among adolescents. A total of 120 (62.5% males, and 37.5% females) adolescents five middle schools from West El Mahalla, El Gharbeya. They ranged in age from 12 to 15 years (M = 13.88, SD =1.24). For the purpose of this study, quantitative survey research was employed. For collecting data, Schutte Self Report Emotional Intelligence Test, (Schutte et al. 1998), The Cyber Victimization Experiences Scale (Betts and Spenser2017), and Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS) (Zimet et al. 1988) were used. Descriptive statistics, inter‑correlations and regression were employed for data analysis. The findings confirmed that emotional intelligence moderated the associations between cyberbullying and perceived social support. In this regard, the findings extend our knowledge on the association between cyberbullying and perceived social support by investigating the emotional intelligence of cyberbullies. Findings were discussed and the conclusion was included.</p> Ayman Abdelgalil M.

Additionally, the aim was to find out if there were relationships between and among mindfulness, resilience and job burnout in nurses in public hospitals. The sample was composed of 130 nurses (all of them were females). The average age was 26.4 years (SD=8.23). Quantitative survey research was employed. The independent variables are mindfulness and resilience, while the dependent variable is job burnout. The Freiburg Mindfulness Inventory (FMI) (Walach et al., 2006), The Connor Davidson-Resilience Scale (CD-RISC). (Connor &amp; Davidson, 2003), and Maslach Burnout Inventory (1996- 2016) were employed for data collection. Findings indicated that there were significant correlations between mindfulness, resilience and job burnout. On the other hand, job burnout was found to be negatively correlated with resilience. The two independent variables (mindfulness and resilience) when put together yielded a coefficient of multiple regression (R) of 0.764 and a multiple correlation square of 0.621. This shows that 62.1% of the total variance in job burnout of those who participated in the study is accounted for by the combination of mindfulness and resilience.</p> Ayman Abdelgalil M.

In this paper, I will present to you some misunderstandings about and misapplications of plagiarism techniques. And how some journals and universities use tools to detect something they call "Citations Ratios" instead of plagiarism.</p> Mahmoud A.
