Dear Strategy Researchers:
I am emailing to determine how researchers find articles (literature) on a topic. (I would then see whether I can automate the search and download.) Please consider answering the questions below. I will use your answers, create a video on the various methods, and make that video available to everyone.
To search for and download articles on a topic:
1. Do you use a website? If yes, name or weblink, please (e.g., https://scholar.google.com/#d=gs_asd)?
2. Do you use a database within this website (e.g., Business Source Complete database within ebscohost.com provided by your school/university library)?
3. What search field(s) do you find useful (e.g., "Author Keywords" in WebofKnowledge.com)?
4. If you have found a neat method that improves your search results, please specify the method (e.g., using "Author-Supplied Keywords" offers a structured method).
5. If you have found a method that provides inaccurate search results, please specify the method. For example, although one sets "Return articles published in" to "Journal of Management," the results include articles published in "*Journal of Management*."
