Many organisations around the world are making research guides freely available to iPad users via iTunes. In some cases the books are also available to read online.
Latham & Watkins’ Book of Jargon® series of online glossaries covers slang and official terminology in areas including European and US corporate and bank finance. The 7 titles can be read online or downloaded as apps via iTunes. The site also includes guides to anti-bribery and corruption legislation in 13 major economies in Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the US and to merger regimes in 80 countries.
Research Methods for Business Students, Managers and Entrepreneurs is the first media-rich, Multi-Touch iBooks Textbook on this subject in the world.
Published by the University of South Wales, Research Methods provides a foundation for research, both for academic study and for practical application in a business environment. It is distributed free on Apple’s iBooks Store to 51 countries worldwide as a contribution to our ongoing commitment to open education resources.
In Research Methods, you’ll find that video, audio and image gallery illustrations bring key concepts and examples to life, while a detailed case study runs through the book, following the experiences of a (fictional) student through the stages of her research project. At selected points in the main text, a reflective activity is introduced to encourage you to consider or explore the aspect under discussion.
This book is equivalent to a full module of study at Masters’ level, and is the result of collaboration between a wide range of academic and professional staff of the University of South Wales.
Technical note: iBooks Textbooks can be downloaded and read on an iPad or an Apple desktop/laptop computer running OS Mavericks/Yosemite.
