Quick Tips

In order to find the best resources, follow these basic steps to develop a concise research strategy.

  1. Create research question -- Has the ethics of whistleblowing changed since the Enron scandal (2001)

  2. Select the concepts -- ethics, whistleblowing, Enron

  3. Pick the keywords for the concepts -- ethics, ethical, moral, morals, whistleblowers, whistleblowing, Enron

  4. Use Boolean operators to combine them (after adjusting for truncation)
    line 1 - ethic* or moral or morals (don't want the keyword morale)
    line 2 - whistleblow*
    line 3 - Enron (or consider searching for items written after 2001)
