Q. Where can I find information on the influence of cross-culture on global business?
I'm writing a research paper on the influence that cross-culture has on global business and I need to expand on the following:
•Values and Attitudes
•Manners and Customs
•Physical and Material Environments
Where should I start?
The topic of cross-culture and global business is a very large one, and may take a little bit to narrow down. I see that you have specific categories that you are looking for. Generally, when discussing cross-culture and business, researchers tend to focus on specific countries to compare. Is this the case in your research? If so, I can direct you to additional useful resources.
I would suggest starting on the International Business and Country Profiles Guide. This will give you the best databases for business research to start.
From the first page of the Business Cornerstone Research Guide (linked above), have a look in the center of the page to find the most recommended databases. The first two, ABI/INFORM Complete and Business Source Complete should be useful in your particular searches. Both will include a variety of information including Journal Articles, Magazine Articles, Newspaper Articles, etc.
In both of them, try searches such as:
Cross-culture AND global business AND aesthetics
Cross-culture AND globalization AND religion
Many of the results you will come across will be speaking about the impact for specific countries. If you are researching about the topic generally, without specific countries in mind, you may have to take the country information as specific cases and examples for what you are writing about. Also check out the resources "Country Watch" and "Global Road Warrior" under the "Country Resources" tab.
