Abstract

Purpose

Academic research is often regarded as a source of many truths, and if people seek answers to problems they should turn to books and journals to uncover a way forward. However, the path toward that kind of enlightenment is often a frustrating one. Academic research is often difficult to access due to paywalls, and when it is accessible the meaning and findings of a study may still seem impenetrable due to the language that is used. It is not surprising to see that academic books are rarely best sellers, as they are hardly page turners.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds his/her own impartial comments and places the articles in context.
