Problem Identification in Exemplary Business Research

Read the two attached, published research articles.

Then assist with writing a short critique of the quality of the research reported in each of these articles.
Case assignment expectations

A critique is a review and commentary (usually in the range of 3-5 pages, not including cover page or reference page) on a particular article(s) or piece(s) of research. It is not necessarily critical in the negative sense, although you may need to comment negatively on some aspects; both positive and negative aspects should be treated. Just because something appears in print, even in an A-list journal, does not make it free from possible errors or beyond criticism; nothing should be necessarily taken at face value.

In this case, your critique should address at least the following issues, as well as any other points that you find relevant and worthy of comment:

The degree to which each of the papers exhibits quality in terms of the eight criteria discussed;

Purposiveness: A definite aim. The research will have some practical benefit.

Rigor: A careful design. The correct data are collected, and no other.

Testability: The data can be tested, and the tentative notions about their relationships can be definitely proved or disproved.

Replicability: Another researcher could do the study again, and get similar results.

Precision and confidence: The research findings are close to "reality." It is highly likely that the results are "true," and not the results of sampling error.

Objectivity: The conclusions of the study are based on the revealed relationships among data, and not the researcher's opinions or philosophical values.

Generalizability: The research findings are applicable to other organizations.

Parsimony: The relationships are simple and straightforward.

The most important data are collected, the most obvious relationships are tested, and the most significant of those are identified.
. Be clear, specific, and brief.

Your comparative assessment of the overall quality of both papers, including the basis for your conclusions.

Please included citations where used.
