    *Sources -

    When an article gives �ought to� advice, it is usually indicative that the article isn�t a high quality research journal article. Such articles are usually found in �practitioner� magazines.  The articles within practitioner magazines are usually heavy on advice about �how to� and short on evidence that the suggestions are supported by anything other than personal opinion.


    True research journals are peer-reviewed, the methodology used in the studies is thorough and statistically sound, and they seldom give �advice� except in the conclusions section, which is almost never a large part of the article. Their purpose isn�t to give advice, but add to the common body of knowledge of whatever discipline they are involved with.  It is seldom heavy on prescription (advice or opinion) and is often �placed� in the current literature so that the reader can easily see where the work adds to the body of common knowledge on the topic discussed.


    As for information obtained from various websites, be aware that any �fool� can set up a website and promote himself as an �expert.�  The information found on a website seldom meets any of the characteristics found in a true research journal and, therefore, should not be considered a reliable source of factual or verifiable information. Information found on a website should generally not be included in a scholarly paper or report.


    The following listing contains two groupings of sources from which to secure information for writing term papers or preparing scholarly reports.  The �A� group contains refereed journals which provide the BEST SOURCE of information about management topics. The �B� group is targeted toward practitioners and is accurate SOME of the time in terms of their CAUSE-EFFECT linkage, but must not be given the same weight of credibility as the �A� list.
