The 94 articles of this six-volume set have been carefully selected to capture the current methodological variations in business and management research and to highlight the important philosophical assumptions that underpin these variances. Seminal articles from leading thinkers are drawn together under the umbrella of six key areas and provide a revealing road map through the field of business and management research.

Volume VI explores the challenges associated with trying to evaluate the quality of business and management research.
