All of the materials in this database are notes that I have taken
as I've read various articles and books. While I tried to keep some standards
of referencing, sometimes I forgot to include proper quotes around verbatim
passages or properly reference every sentence or paragraph as I read the
Usually the reference for any particular statement not explicitly referenced
is either attributable to a nearby reference on the page (i.e. the one before
it) or to Dick Scott's book Organizations (which provided the initial
backbone for this notes database). Since I'm a neophyte in OB research
you can be assured that none of the ideas are my own.
I apologize if I've slighted anybody by failing to include proper quotes
or references, or changed the meaning of particular articles by the notes
I've taken on them. Any note-taking naturally affects the meaning and interpretation
of a text -- I'd highly reccomend reading the actual article before using
it in your own writings.
If anybody thinks something should be changed, please don't hesitate to
send me a note (firstname.lastname@example.org).
