The issue of music has always been controversial. The fact that what is understood by music has been always a fundamental question for scholars. This research, which is based on a theological approach, seeks a new insight into the different dimensions of music by using the philosophical rules of transcendental wisdom, such as unity of human beings and the world, and the analysis of the problem of the soul. In fact, the purpose of this article, which is based on a hermeneutical method, is to answer to the question of how music is understood and perceived. The outcome of this study not only allows for the establishment of philosophical foundations in light of transcendental wisdom for music, but because this analysis is carried out in light of epistemic acceptance, it provides music with a kind of sacredness and gives it a theological aspect. In addition, the music is regarded ontologically and harmoniously equal with the philosophical-mystical foundations of transcendental wisdom.

Freedom of information has gained a special place since the beginning of the twenty-first century and it is known as the oxygen of democracy. In Iran, the law relating to the freedom of publication and transfer of information in 2009, while providing necessary infrastructure to respond to the need for free access to information, partially ended disputes and ambiguities. The implementation of this law can be evaluated as a fundamental revolution in administrative, executive and managerial affairs. Establishing the necessary structures and infrastructure is one of the prerequisites for the implementation of this law. Thus, explaining the grounds for the implementation of the law on publication and free access to information in Iran is the purpose of this article. Method: This article is based on an applied research. It uses an exploratory mixed method that combines qualitative and quantitative dimensions. In the qualitative phase, the data collection was carried out using semi-structured interviews with ten of elites and experts in the field of freedom of information in order to identify the ground and to formulate hypotheses. In the quantitative phase, the data collection was done by formulating and distributing questionnaires among 115 elites to survey about the relevant priorities; and the obtained data were analyzed by coding and regression testing on the software SPSS19. Results: As a result of data analysis, six main grounds were extracted, under the headings: legal, political, socio-cultural, technical, administrative and economic grounds. Socio-cultural grounds with the coefficient factor (0.463) was the strongest predictor variable effective on the implementation of the publication and free access to information, and then legal grounds with the coefficient factor (0.231), political grounds with the coefficient factor (0.13), economic grounds with the coefficient factor (0.11), technical grounds with the coefficient factor (0.025) and administrative grounds with the coefficient factor (0.025), are placed respectively in lower ranks. Conclusion: Due to the priority of culture in the implementation of the law on publishing and free access to information, it is necessary to adopt appropriate measures to strengthen this factor on the government’s agenda

Carrying out reforms, as one of the key aspects of policy making in the education sector, has long been considered a significant subject by many countries and governments have paid close attention to the important role of educational reform. Moving toward an effective educational reform in harmony with the existing political and economic situation can increase the productivity of the education system envisaged in the horizon of the national development perspective. The aim of this paper is to identify the affecting factors in this area of policy making and to develop a model of decentralization in educational policy- making process. In this article, we review the literature and conceptualize a model based on the literature. After conducting 15 interviews with the former members of Iranian Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution, the Supreme Council of Education, ministers of education and academic professionals, we extracted through the method of thematic analysis, 12 main themes and 36 subthemes and provided a model consisting of four levels in harmony with the outcomes of this study. Finally, we describe the actual situation of the Iranian education system.

By entering the digital era and given the expansion of electronic devices, the demands and needs of society have undergone changes and the government should adapt public services with these changes and provide new services with an innovative approach using modern information and communication technologies. This qualitative research seeks to model the innovation process of electronic public services in Iran using Strauss and Corbin's approach to the Grounded Theory. In this regard, due to the lack of a codified model in the field of innovation in e-government citizen services, based on national studies and experiences, 15 specialized semi-structured interviews with scientific and executive experts were conducted to answer the research question. The analysis of data in the open coding process led to the emergence of 165 abstract concepts in the form of 22 main categories. Then, these categories were linked together in the pivotal coding process. Finally, five theorems were obtained as a result of selective coding. Data analysis, based on Grounded Theory, suggests that "Unfulfilled Expectations of Citizens" and "New Expectations of Citizens" and "Technological Possibilities" considered as the “Innovation Opportunity Making Streams”, through the “Innovation Process Cycle” consisting stages of "Need to Service Discovery", "Service Design", "Provision of the Service" and "Re-continuation of the Innovation Process in Service" transform the "Innovation Niche" into the quadruple effects of "Innovative Citizen Services", "Service Experience", "Public Services Productivity" and “Government Agility. At the same time, the “Enabling Factors” of "Participatory Approach", "Supportive Attitude", "Organizational Innovation Capacity", "Technology Social Equipment", “Providing Legal Foundation”, “e-Trust Infrastructure”, "Organizational System" and "Entrepreneur Agent" are considered as interfering factors and the underlying factors of "Close Context" and "Far Context" as enabling contextual factors, facilitating innovation in e-government citizen services.

Today, the phenomenon of branding as a new discipline attracts many researchers from inside and outside the Muslim world. Thus, the purpose of this article is to conceptualize and prioritize the components of Islamic branding in Iranian industries in order to provide a conceptual framework for entering the global markets. The research method is exploratory mixed, which is done sequentially in two qualitative and quantitative sections. In the first step of the research, the authors in order to achieve the research goals, used in-depth semi-structured interviews with 14 experts, academics and professors in the field of marketing and market research, branding and Islamic branding. They also selected purposive judgmental sampling and used snowball method to identify and classify the components of Islamic branding. Then, in the quantitative phase, they applied a descriptive-survey method and used a researcher-made questionnaire, through which they collected the comments and views of 328 managers and marketing experts in 60 Islamic names. Finally, the data were analyzed by using confirmatory factor analysis and LISREL software. The results of the research at the survey stage of the experts led to the identification of the three main components of the approaches (conceptual, focal, time-oriented, personality-oriented, incident-oriented, value-oriented and symbolic), opportunities (Islamic brand popularity, the population of the market and Islamic education) and the challenges (Islamophobia and investment risk) of Islamic branding.
