The essay must be correctly structured with a proper introduction (where you address the question, your stance on it, key definitions and outline the structure of the paper), body (where you address one point per paragraph using evidence) and a conclusion (where you reiterate the argument).

In academic writing you are expected to meet certain standards with regards to the level of analysis and provide evidence to support points made in developing a line of reasoning and analysis. Discussion should be based on sound research findings and expert observation and comment. The quality of your writing is determined by the credibility and authority of the sources you cite/reference.

The essay must contain at least 15 academic articles from refereed journals. Further, you must use the HARVARD system of referencing.

It is imperative that you read widely. However, you need to be aware of the credibility of all material you use. For example, while newspaper and business journals and magazines report events and comment on a variety of management issues the ‘facts’ may be reported selectively and their accuracy questionable as their purpose is to sell. Such sources are therefore useful to illustrate points or provide examples in your writing but should not be used as substitutes for peer-refereed academic work.

It is expected that you will become familiar with the relevant journals in the university serials collection. For general browsing the following journals may be useful (the list is not exhaustive):

> Academy of Management Journal
> Academy of Management Executive
> Academy of Management Review
> Administrative Science Quarterly
> Journal of Industrial Relations
> British Journal of Industrial Relations
> Industrial Relations
> Relations Industrielles
> Labour and Industry
> Australian Bulletin of Labour
> Asia Pacific Journal of Human Resources
> Human Resource Management
> Work, Employment and Society
> International Journal of Human Resource Management
> Journal of Applied Psychology
> Journal of Management Studies
> Human Relations

There are a number of electronic databases available in the Victoria University Library that are relevant to the study of management.

> Emerald
