Please see the WIN Essay Writing Guide, or any of the above staff if you are in any doubt as to how to do this.You should then open some of the articles suggested by your search. Try reading the summary (known as the abstract) at the beginning and skim the Introduction and conclusion. Discard the articles that dont appear too relevant and continue until you gather 6-10 references that cover the topic. If you select that number, it is likely that you will find articles that take different approaches, or which have useful case studies, or well written explanations of the models, and so on.Alternatively, instead of placing key words in the search engine, you can look up relevant journals that each database has. A list of relevant journals can be found on page 19 of the HR Strategy subject outline. A couple of additional journals are• International Journal of Employment Studies,• Employment Relations Record and• International Employment Relations Review.Once you have opened a selected journal, you can then either skim the contents page of recent issues for articles that seem relevant, or you can use the search engine for that journal. Then proceed as above (open articles and read the abstract etc to determine relevance).D.
