MGT 357 - Evidence-based management

This guide will help students find articles to support evidence-based management practices.

Best bets: Business databases

These databases are best for finding peer-reviewed articles in business disciplines.

You must authenticate as a JMU user with Duo to access them, whether on-campus or off-campus.

Can I use Google Scholar to find articles?

 

Google Scholar logo

Yes, of course! Academic researchers do all the time. But be aware of its benefits ... 

  • Allows you to search scholarly literature across many disciplines and sources, not just a single database.
  • Suggests related articles, who else has cited this work
  • Frequently the fastest way to track down an article by citation

... and limitations

  • Not all articles returned are available full-text through JMU Libraries
  • Not all articles are peer-reviewed ( and there's no way to filter)
  • Less precise results than you’ll get using a specialized database
