Problems with Wikipedia

Wikipedia: we all love it, we all use it and we all enjoy reading about the humourous, rude or just plain silly edits that users make to it. There's no denying that it's become one of the most used research tools on the Internet. However the fact that just about anyone can make changes to its articles has caused some problems.

Using Wikipedia

Wikipedia has been one of the great success stories of the Internet, but as you all know, teachers prefer you to use edited, reliable and trustworthy sources for your research and assignments. Unfortunately, Wikipedia is not always reliable, but now, there's a new product being developed from it that provides expert validation of the content. This is a great benefit for both teachers, students and researchers.

Validate your research

One of the modules of my advanced research and communication course, is about evaluating other people's research. It's really important to check how research has been carried out if you're going to use the results for your own purpose, whether that's for use in an assignment, or to help you make a real life business decision.

Too many books, too little time

I just watched a great video (about an hour long) of a talk by Barry Schwartz, who wrote a book called "The Paradox of Choice".

What's the research question?

I was recently asked for help with research on knowledge management. The researcher left a brief message stating:

"I'm doing research on knowledge management and developing a questionnaire. Can you help to provide me with research and questionnaires on knowledge management?"
