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)
