Business Research Article

When it comes to business research, all parties involved must be on the same page.
There has to be a common goal everyone is trying to reach in order for the research to evolve as it should. One great way to research a product or even find out about customer service in a restaurant is by giving surveys. Now personally I do surveys about once a week through different organizations, where they are doing research on anything from the kind of soap you use to the gas station you most likely get gas from and why. This is a marketing tool to help them develop a better product or to fix the existing one. When a manufacturer comes out with a new product, surveys from consumers can really be key to developing the best product. They can research the size of the product, how much it should cost, where it should be sold, or even additional places it should be sold, and also the packaging may be the issue with the consumer. Those are the advantages of business surveys.
“Manufacturers have a lot to think about when designing their products. Packaging plays received packaging can get neglected by consumers. That’s because it’s what happens once the product hits the store that can make a world of difference between bright profit margins and dull performances.”1 ( http://www.macorr.com/blog/?cat=4)
“The first step is identifying key competitors in the industry. One way to garner information on the competition is through secondary research. Secondary research information is data that are already available about the industry: market share and total market sales. Secondary research may also provide detailed information about competitors, such as number of employees, products they sell and their key strengths. Secondary research can be…...

...Business Research Article In January 2011, Michelle Johnston, Kendra Reed, and Kate Lawrence wrote the article Team Listening Environment (TLE) scale for the Journal of Business Communication. The origin and findings of this case study from these three women are examined in the below writing. Research Problem and Purpose This pioneering study was based on the listening environment within teams and inspired the research to fully develop and validate a Team Listening Environment (TLE) scale. The authors define TLE as the individual’s perception of behaviors demonstrating genuine attention and understanding by team members (Johnston, Reed, Lawrence, p.6). The purpose of this scale is to expand current research by creating awareness to the correlation between the value of team listening and achieving organizational success. The scale’s purpose is also for management’s use as a tool for accessing listening environments and improving organizational/team performance.

Structure and Pattern of Introduction of Business Related Discipline Research Articles

...Introduction of Business Related Discipline Research Articles Qing Tian I. Introduction Business and economics papers have made a significant contribution to the development of the corporations and economics growth. However, it may be difficult for the readers to fully understand the materials if the structure of the papers is very complicated. In recent decades, there is an increasing trend in the complicacy of business and economics papers (Ellison, 2000). This phenomenon will induce more complexity in comprehending profound research papers. Regarding it, some basic models have been invented to give a general guideline of the building blocks of the research papers. For example, for writing an introduction of an article, Swales (1990) introduced a rhetorical pattern called create-a-research-space (CARS) which segments the introduction into three major parts, namely move 1, 2 and 3. The move 1 aims to give a background information of the topic of the research paper, depicting a general picture of which area the paper will fall into. The next move known as niche basically serves to connect move 1 and 3, illustrating the motive and inspiration of the paper (Swales & Feak, 2012). Followed by niche is the main purpose of the article. By presenting in either a purposive or descriptive way, the author can show a ultimate goal of the article. However, although some kinds of standardizations have been made to formalize the research papers, the construction of journals articles......

...Running Head: QUALITATIVE RESEARCH ARTICLE CRITIQUE Qualitative Research Article Critique Corey J. Ivany (MUN ID#: 009435660) Education 6100 Memorial University of Newfoundland Abstract This paper is an academic critique of a qualitative research article written by Karen Dorgan (2004) entitled: A Year in the Life of an Elementary School: One School’s Experiences in Meeting New Mathematics Standards. Throughout the course of the 1999-2000 school year, Dorgan observed and interviewed teachers who were members of the faculty of an economically and racially diverse elementary school in Virginia. The purpose behind the case study was to examine how the changes in the state Standards of Learning would effect pedagogical decision making, teaching and learning, and methods of instruction and evaluation. My evaluation/critique of this article is an holistic interpretation of the study as an example of a qualitative research project and is based on my understandings of this type of study from my involvement in Education 6100: Research and Design Methods from Memorial University of Newfoundland. My concern is to develop a systematic and analytical discussion based around the degree to which this case study exemplifies the characteristics of qualitative research.

...the Emperor of France. Napoleon was forced to abdicate from his throne in 1814 and was exiled to the island of Corsica. However in 1815 Napoleon arrived in Paris again raising a new army ready for a fresh war in Europe. The Masons had a big problem on their hands. Britain and her Masonic allies could not afford to maintain a long term war against Napoleon without risking bankruptcy. Help came from an unlikely source Nathan Rothschild was the head of a leading banking family but because of their status as Jews they were forced to work from the shadows of others. Rothschild seized the opportunity to liberate his people and often alone demanding in return recognition of the Jews as equals to the European counterparts under right to openly do business. If the Masons refused the money could always go to Napoleon. The Masons had no choice but to accept and the loan transaction was completed. In 1815 British, Dutch and Russian soldiers landed in Waterloo, Belgium where they met Napoleons forces and defeated them. Napoleon was captured this time never to return France was finally under Masonic control. Although historians made little mention of the Masonic involvement in the revolution the Masons themselves have to reveal their shadowy movements during this important period in history.

Adams, Nathan C. Carter, Charles R. Hadlock, Dominique M. Haughton and George Sirbu Introduction: This article describes the importance of interdisciplinary research and teaching that has become a common theme in assessing the state of modern university. The US National Academies have issued a self described ‘call to action’ to universities to upgrade their attention to this issue and the retiring president of the International Economics Association has argued strongly for more to be done to connect the disciplines. Many academic work of business school faculty still tends to focus on the interests of disciplinary academic journals. The pressures for a disciplinary focus encourage individual investigators to pursue common phenomena. It is convenient to view cross-disciplinary collaboration using a social network Paradigm. Research findings indicate that, in general, diverse teams promote more innovative solutions provided they can work well together. Individuals working on teams are bridge to external resources from their own social networks. In this way a team benefits from members that have connections to outside networks that can provide access to......

This article speaks about the popular trends coming along in 2015. In 2015 more seems to be the word of the year. As a country we are on the cusp of so many wonderful advances in the technology field. You can collaborate with people across the globe, and complete a common goal together while you’re apart. The internet has strung us all together and we are seeing such evidence of that with the cloud. One of our subtopics of our power point presentation for our learn team was, “Collaborative Software”. One of the little software we digested was Microsoft Office 365. Each year more and more users say yes to the cloud, and the Terabytes just keep adding up. For services as such 2015 will require more. A larger investment, more advertising, more competitiveness, and even more storage needed. This trend towards the direction of the cloud is starting to come to a head and is really close to becoming the way of the present. When you look around the cloud has touched you in some sort of way, whether is storing your contacts on their website or backing up your important photos from your trip to Europe, you are involved in some way.

Research Article

...Research Article: Standard Tracheal Secretion Assessment versus an acoustic Secretion Detector Endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation are life-saving procedures in patients with respiratory insufficiency. But this can profoundly impair the defensive mechanisms which keep the lower respiratory tract sterile, increasing the risk of bacterial colonization and ventilator-associated pneumonia. Although endotracheal suctioning is a standard of care in all mechanically ventilated patients, clear guidelines regarding the technique and timing of suctioning are lacking. The applicable American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) guideline suggests that endotracheal suctioning should be performed at some minimum frequency or when clinically indicated. Since endotracheal suctioning can cause hypoxemia, mechanical trauma, bronchospasm, and hemodynamic instability, an accurate assessment of the need for suctioning might decrease the frequency of suctioning complications. TBA Care is a novel device designed to generate a signal when secretions are present in the respiratory tract of an intubated patient, indicating the need for endotracheal suctioning. This is the first prospective randomized trial to compare different indications for endotracheal suctioning. This study compares the efficacy of TBA Care in detecting the presence of secretions in the airways to standard indications, and tested the hypothesis that different suctioning indications could impact the incidence......

In this paper, we're going to look a research study from a professional journal that has been peer-reviewed, along with answering various questions about the data collected, results of the study and design of the study. The study we're using is: Exploratory Study of the Relationship between Poverty and Crimes in Albany/Dougherty, Georgia by Nwaokoro, Amaechi N., Marshall, Clifford, Mittal, Shiwam, Journal of Business & Economics Research, 2013. Purpose of the Study For many communities it's easy to say the worse parts of town breed crime. Poor people are the ones who break the laws, they're the ones that need to be kept away from the higher class citizens. Is this really true? In some communities, it just may be. The purpose of this study was to determine if in fact poverty causes crime. Does a person's financial state and area of housing cause push that person into a life of crime? Another purpose of the study is to show if the area in question, Albany/Dougherty Georgia, had over time seen their crime rates rise as the population rose.

To Nursing Research NRS-433V April 21, 2011 Critique of the Research Article: Perspectives of Hospital-Based Nurses on Breastfeeding Initiation Best Practices The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the differences in breastfeeding knowledge and the implementation of breastfeeding by registered nurses in the postpartum units and the hospital policies, both formal and informal, related to the implementation and support of breastfeeding. Human milk is accepted as the ideal food source for infants for the first 6 months of life. Breastfeeding is then encouraged as a supplement to other foods until the child is 12 months of age and beyond. Both The Academy of Pediatrics and the International Lactation Consultant Association support these recommendations. CDC statistics report that in 2006 73.9% of women breastfed in the early postpartum period. This drops to 33.1% of those that are exclusively breastfeeding at 3 months of age and then drops again to 13.6% exclusively......

Burton, S., Howlett, E., & Tangari, A. (2009) Study Objectives After reading the journal article, I believe that the purpose of this study was to prove that there is a gap between perceived and actual fast food nutritional value, and it is the appreciation of this gap that influences consumer purchases and not the definite disclosure of nutrition information. Research was based around the questions of how accurately consumers can measure the levels of calorie, fat and sodium content in their out of home food, and whether of availability of nutrition information will effect food evaluation, purchase intentions, and choice throughout the industry. It is my belief that the study also had a supplementary purpose directed toward quick service retail restaurants. Results from the study may be used to influence the product and market offerings of fast food retailers through an acknowledgement of the relationship between nutrition awareness and the quantity of a particular food product demanded. Research Methodology The study consisted of an intricate method of research, conducted through three separate experiments. The hypotheses of each experiment were drawn from the disconfirmation theory (van Raaij 1991). The first......
