Brief descriptions of the thinking and writing most valued by individual disciplines; recommended library databases


Business is usually practiced as a Social Science. However, people within the Business world have their own expectations when they read. These expectations include:

  • Saving the reader's time. Business people prefer short analysis because they value their own time.
