Abstract

Arguments on the best way to do research should be subjected to empirical research. Much has already been learned from recent research. My conclusion from this research is that those who call for more subjectivity in scientific research or reporting are looking at a major shortcoming in scientific practice and are proclaiming it to be a virtue.

Keywords: Managment, management science, empirical research, subjectivity
