Scholarly Peer Reviews Undeniably, locating scholarly sources is perhaps the most important step towards exemplary research work. When locating scholarly sources, I logged in to Walden University library site and then chose the research databases. In the subject area I chose business and management. In the top recommended Databases, I chose ABI/INFORM Complete, In the Search Box I typed business and checked peer reviewed and full text and finally chose from list of articles. The First article I picked was “Subjectivist Economics and Ethical Business” and the second one was “The Failure of Free-Market Economics. ” The major determining factor of selecting a particular piece was the contribution it added to my knowledge.
Since I could not go through all sources in the library, I evaluated the sources related to my field of research and interpreted the abstracts. I chose journals because they are peer reviewed and therefore scholarly recognised. The first Scholarly journal was a review of Australian political economy by Martin Feil on the topic “The failure of free markets economy. ” Martin is an economist specialising in customs, logistics, transfer pricing, and international trade related matters.
This qualifies him as a credible writer on the subject. His interest in the banning of free markets and his interaction with the Australian customs shows that he has the experience to provide ideas why the free markets failed. The article describes Feil’s naivety together with other staffs at AIC and the assumption that lower security on imports would automatically lead to lower consumer prices. After years of working with other prominent firms and gaining lots of expertise, Feil attributes the failure of free markets to the arid Australian economy.
He blames the engorged predatory finance sector, the cynical privatisation, and the poor government on international trade and business matters (Feil, 2010) The second article with the name “Subjectivist Economics and Ethical Business” by Schwartz and Spong is from the journal of business ethics. From the abstract, we understand that the journal endeavours to support a growth and development to economics that will contribute to business ethics. In addition, the paper contains materials that judge business decision-making integrating concepts of uncertainty, time and imagination that contributes to business ethics and conduct.
The journal starts by examining the works of Adam Smith the father of economics in analysing the relationship that exist between ethics and economics using Garners economic methodology. Then the review proceeds to describe the views of individual authors on the referral to economics on business ethicists, Neo classical economics, and interpretations of market efficiency, and resolution of Chicago and Keynesian approaches for business ethics. Subjectivist economics assist in understanding the business ethics through the theory of dynamic economists (Schwartz & Spong, 2009) In conclusion, it is extremely crucial to consider using reasonable, relevant, peer-reviewed, bibliographic sources in a research work.
DBA Doctoral research requires scholarly sources and peer-reviewed sources because they are credible, authentic, authoritative, and useful. Additionally, most journals present original research and therefore can be used for literature review when conducting primary research. Using current scholarly sources helps to avoid obsolete information. References Schwartz, M., & Spong, H. (2009) “Subjectivist Economics and Ethical Business” Journal of business ethics, 90: 123-136.
