Discussion 6: Research with Integrity
Please respond using 200 words or more.
Research with Integrity…means what?
For this week, consider the integrity of research and what it means to you.
- First, find the article “‘The Meaning of Business’ an interview with Jeff van Duzer” by Rob Moll on a Google or Bing search. (This article appeared in Christianity Today in January 2011. You may not be able to view the article in it’s entirety without subscribing. Don’t worry about this; the assignment is about finding the article not necessarily reading the article, although it is a nice read.)
- Next, find the same article from its original printed source material using the Jung-Kellogg Library databases. (If you are unfamiliar with the databases, use the MBU Library tool in the left-hand menu and follow the directions provided. You may have to search multiple databases; for example, try both ATLA and the Business Premier sites.)
Reflect on the following questions:
- What is the difference between using the research method through the library and finding it on the Internet?
- Are Internet sources generally reliable?
- What are the pros and cons of using the Internet search engines (Google, Bing, etc.) for information?
- What about Wikipedia (isn’t it just as good as the EBSCO host search)?
- Does paying to view content make it more credible? Explain.
- What do you see as the ethical considerations for research, or in other words, how would you define “Research with Integrity”?
- Finally, cite this article according to APA guidelines.
