Here we are, just four days into the new year, yet, through the magic of publishers forward dating their new titles, your wonderful SFU Library already has over 1500 books, ebooks, films, etc. with 2016 as the copyright year!
How's this for a New Year's resolution? The SFU Library is kicking off 2016 with a major reorganization!
Our overall goal is to realign our people and responsibilities in order to meet emerging researcher needs. From a Business/Economics perspective, this restructuring will result in some significant changes around who to contact if you need assistance.
In my last post, I talked about using the economics sections of major Canadian financial institutions to find key economic measures, as well as forecasts of the same. Today we're going to extend the discussion to economic predictions from a few key SFU Library databases.
Happy 2016! Here's hoping your research this year is smooth, yet full of enlightening surprises!
Check out one of our new online books, the Gale Encyclopedia of Psychology (3rd edition, 2016).
Encyclopedia entries are a good place to get started with a new topic, such as competence to stand trial, empiricism, and experimental design.
Check out the library's new online encyclopedia: World of Forensic Science (2nd edition, 2016).
The book is a great starting point to forensics topics ranging from art forgery to wildlife forensics, and anthrax to voice analysis.
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.
