I often get asked for help finding case studies on various topics. Here are a few tips for searching for case studies:
- A lot of books available in the Library contain case studies. To find these try adding “case studies” to a keyword search on the Library Catalogue.
- You can search for journal articles containing case studies in a similar way. Add “case studies” to your search on e-journals databases like Business Source Premier or ABI/Inform Global. Alternatively look for an option to limit your search by selecting “case study” as the Document Type.
There are also a lot of case studies available for free online. They are often written by teaching staff in business schools or researcher centre staff. We’ve grouped together some useful links under the case-studies tag on the warwickbuslib Delicious account.
Blogging is increasingly being used by academics as a method of communication. Blogs allow the research community to share and discuss ideas much more easily and quickly than more traditional publishing routes. Warwick’s Vice Chancellor, Nigel Thrift, has blogged on this topic.
