Research on the Issuance of Judgment Documents with the Background of China’s Judicial Reform
Based on China’s judicial reform, judicial mysticism which covers up the abuse of power should be substituted by judicial openness, and issuing the judgment documents is one of the most important tasks in China’s judicial openness. Issuing the judgment documents not only means presenting the documents to the public, but rather as a systematic project which involves updating the judicial ideology, refining the rules of procedure and advancing the organizational system. The system of issuing the judgment documents counts for much in ensuring impartiality of justice and safeguarding the authority and dignity of judiciary. Furthermore, it reflects the level of political civilization of a nation. Achieving justice through public interaction between judicial authority and people's democratic rights is the essence of this task. Currently, Chinese authority has achieved significant progress on the issuance of judgment documents. However, there is still a lot to do to realize the further genuine judicial openness and the supporting mechanism should be established as soon as possible. Key Word: Judicial Reform, Judicial Mysticism, Judicial Openness, Issuance of Judgment Documents.

Middle Managers’ Leadership and Students’ Learning Behaviour: The Role of Teacher Collective Efficacy as Mediator
This research aims to identify the influence of school middle managers’ leadership towards the teachers’ collective efficacy and students’ learning behaviour. The objectives of this research focus specifically in determining whether teachers’ collective efficacy is the mediator between school middle managers’ transformational and instructional leadership with students’ learning behaviour. 320 teachers are selected randomly from public secondary schools of three states from Northern Part of Peninsular Malaysia. The data for this research were obtained via adapted questionnaires from the instruments by Leithwood and Jantzi (1999); Ross and Gray (2006); Kursunoglu and Tanriogen (2009); Leithwood, Patten and Jantzi (2010). These data were analysed using the AMOS 18. The results from SEM analysis (structural equation modelling) showed that transformational leadership (β=0.23, p<0.01) and instructional leadership (β=0.19, p<0.01) have positive effect towards the teachers’ collective efficacy with variance of 47%. Meanwhile, transformational leadership (β=0.19, p<0.01), instructional leadership (β=0.28, p<0.01) and teachers’ collective efficacy (β=0.30, p<0.01) posed a direct and positive influence towards students’ learning behaviour with a variance of 44%. Results also revealed that teachers’ collective efficacy act as a partial mediator between middle managers’ transformational leadership and students’ learning behaviour. On the other hand, teachers’ collective efficacy act as a full mediator between instructional leadership and students’ learning. In terms of its implications, this research implies that the school management should place emphasis on the transformational and instructional leadership practices in enhancing students’ learning behaviour. While teachers should also strive in building confidence in teaching that is to be shared with students which propels their learning behaviour.
