Getting the Best Available Evidence
Determining which literature is most important:
- Use the "peer reviewed" or "scholarly" limiters in the research databases
- Scan the abstract to see what kind of study (longitudinal, cross-sectional, etc.) the author used
- Look for signs of bias in the abstract
- Consider the reputation of the journal (Harvard Business Review)
