SFU researchers now have trial access to a collection of ESG data via our WRDS financial data interface. This trial of RepRisk ESG data will end on Oct. 19, 2016 (yes -- 2016!). The RepRisk data includes severity measures for each of 28 different issues (child labor, local pollution, freedom of association...) within the broader categories of Environmental, Social, and Governance. <more>

Overwhelmed trying to tease out trends in a Big Data dataset? Perplexed by panel methods in strategy research? Curious about the publishing criteria for qualitative research? Have we got a resource for you!
We are very pleased to announce that SFU researchers now have online access to over a hundred lectures on advanced research methods topics. Look for the CARMA Video Library on our alphabetical list of databases.
I just noticed that the CMA Innovation Centre within our Beedie School of Business wil be hosting a presentation on Introverts in the Executive Suite on Nov. 26th. Interesting topic!
I'm not able to attend, but for those of you who are able, or even just those of you who want to learn more about the topic, check out the research tips below. I've pulled these from one of the topic guides I created for a BUS 360W class a couple years ago.
I was just searching through comScore's Insights (blog posts, case studies, data gems, reports, and more) when I came across a series of cool resources focused on mobiles, millennials, and even mobile millennials, including a bit of Canada-specific data. I've always been a sucker for a good alliterative coincidence -- and once my attention had been grabbed, I thought I'd share the joy via a blog post...
UP, not OUT... that's the extremely short summary of a new report published by Statistics Canada today on the long-term trend in housing across Canada.
OK, I'm not superstitious, but I do believe that when a topic bumps me on the nose three times in one morning, I should probably pay attention. Today, that topic was business in Northern BC, and the story is worth re-telling as it will also guide you to some cool resources and strategies that you might find useful...
I know at least one class is working on an assignment focused on the current federal election, and I suspect there may be others. I thought it might be fun to reproduce some of the research tips my colleagues and I found when we were creating a research guide focused on millennial voters.
Where can I learn about millennial consumers/voters in particular?
I understand that a couple of our classes are going to be doing some primary consumer/market research this term in which they focus on taste tests.
It's rare that I get a chance to blog about our many resources aimed at supporting primary research, so I thought I'd use this topic as an opportunity to riff a bit about the cool stuff available. Even if your primary research has nothing to do with taste tests, you might find the following resources and search techniques useful.
I understand that our BUS 430 students (Cross-Cultural Management) are going to be looking for some secondary data sources to test various hypotheses. I thought I'd list a few of my favourite sources that might fit their needs.
In no particular order, my recommendations are...
Calling all instructors...
Have you ever been in the middle of planning a lecture when you suddenly wondered if showing that video (or copying that chapter... or making a slide from that artistic work) was allowed within copyright laws, policies, and guidelines?
Such quandaries tend to happen at the last minute -- often at midnight! Why not spend an hour now to save some worry later?
