I’m just writing a lecture for Sheffield Business School International Marketing Masters students. I wanted to explain that in a literature review for their research proposal whilst contemporary articles are preferred there are always seminal articles that have lead and shaped thinking in the subject.
I created this list of some stand out articles that have endured.
