Academic Writing: A Guide for Management Students and Researchers (Response Books)

Description

This book addresses key features of the methodology involved in business and management academic writing. Characterizing academic writing as part of research, science and the knowledge generation process, it focuses on its three main aspects: understanding existing research, documenting and sharing the results of the acquired knowledge, and acknowledging the use of other people s ideas and works in the documentation. Written in lucid language, the authors use various examples of good as well as defective writing to help students understand the concepts. They describe in detail the structure and contents of academic papers, especially conceptual and empirical research papers for journals. This book will be a rich reference resource for researchers working in the fields of management, behavioral sciences, and communications and also graduate students engaged in academic writing and research documentation.
