Module 3 – SLP

Overview of Theory in Business Research

The background material for this module
introduced you to some journals where scholars and practitioners share their
insights. For this assignment we will test our ability to understand and
differentiate between scholarly and practitioner journals.

Examples of scholarly/academic journals would
be the Academy of Management Journal, Management Science, and Academy of
Management Review.

Examples of a practitioner journals would be
Academy of Management Perspectives, Sloan Management Review, and Harvard
Business Review.

You are expected to know how to use both types
of materials as references for your future efforts. This initial learning task
should be the beginning of an effort to increase your ability to search for
information sources for whatever topics you are pursuing toward your doctoral
research.

In this assignment you are expected to:

1.Discuss 5 best
practices for conducting a literature review.

2.Find two theoretical
studies as well as two applied research studies related to your area of
research interest and include an annotated bibliography of these articles in
APA style (http://writingcenter.unc.edu/tips-and-tools/annota…).

3.Discuss how you might
use both as part of background material.

Make sure you use reliable and updated
material.
