Instructor's Notes:
This Prezi is strong enough to stand alone as a brief overview. It can also be used in conjunction with a course presentation.

Each component can be elaborated on:
Scholarly Article - greater detail on peer-review and creating new information through research while looking back at prior research.
Trade Article - greater detail on the applied nature of these articles, case studies, industry examples.
Regional Article - greater detail on regional vs national differences, small company coverage, local executives.
Newspaper - very timely but often superficial, sometimes inaccurate due to speed of reporting; also regional perspective.
General Business Article - national perspective, hot topic, but lacks regular coverage vs trade article; looks at broader implications.

Some of the article examples link to Purdue databases. I have added a link to an example out on the open web. These can be used as specific examples for each type. The instructor can show the examples and highlight the key components and differences.

Quizzes are included for reinforcement of learning, self evaluation, and for in-class assessment.

Learning Objectives: to increase the foundational knowledge of the types of documents a student studying Hospitality & Tourism Management might encounter during their research.

Hospitality & Tourism Management Research

Information is 'packaged' into different document types. Articles, books, journals, blogs, tweets, infographics, data sets, and many more are available in databases and elsewhere across the web. The word 'Articles' is a catch-all phrase for a wide variety of 'packaged' information.

Each type goes through a different process before it is available, before being published. Each type provides a different level and depth of information.

Understanding the differences can make your research much more effective & efficient.
