    A Brief Analysis of the Legal Status of Electronic Agents in Commercial Transactions

    With the continuous advancement of technology, online transactions have gradually become the predominant mode of commerce in society. Currently, a new type of transaction facilitator has emerged in online transactions, known as electronic agents. This specialized concept and its legal definition originated in Western countries, and China has also adopted this concept. Electronic agents cannot be construed as natural persons, nor can they be fashioned as legal entities. They are merely tools capable of executing the will of individuals, albeit with some distinctions from conventional transaction tools. Establishing the legal status of electronic agents can reduce conflicts and contradictions related to online transactions in our current lives, facilitate the development of automated electronic transactions, and promote the rapid progress of our society. Currently, legislation in China in this regard remains uncharted territory, yet our lives are already enveloped by these online transactions. This has resulted in the inability to reach a unanimous resolution for many disputes involving electronic agents in our daily lives, leaving judges to resolve issues based on fundamental legislative principles or relevant legal provisions. The party employing the machine is often an organization with superior cognitive abilities compared to individuals. Therefore, we should consider electronic agents as their employees, and the actions they take should be the responsibility of legal or non-legal entities. It is essential to prioritize the protection of the weaker party as much as possible.

    Overview of Scientific Advancements in Implementation Science

    Implementation science is a systematic research methodology aimed at facilitating the application of research findings and other evidence-based practices into clinical daily routines. It has become highly relevant to scientific research. As the concept of "implementation science" deepens, related theories and practical methods continue to evolve, leading to rapid advancements in implementation science. However, in China, there has been limited application and slower development of implementation research. This study approaches the subject from a problem-oriented perspective and systematically describes several commonly used theoretical frameworks, methodologies, implementation strategies, and applications in implementation research. The goal is to support the development of implementation science in China, promote its integration into evidence-based medicine, and provide reference materials for conducting implementation research more effectively.
