Reference Papers:

1. 周雪光2003。《组織社會學十講》64-110頁。北京:社會科學文獻出版社。

· These pages described different types of contributions in sociological studies, using the institutional theory research program as an example. Quick reading to get some sense about various types of studies and their contributions mentioned here.

2. Robert I. Sutton and Barry M. Staw. 1995. “What Theory is Not.” Administrative Science Quarterly 40: 371-384.
3. Karl E. Weick. 1995. “What Theory is Not, Theorizing Is.” Administrative Science Quarterly 40: 385-390.

· The two articles above provided journal editors’ reflections on why some manuscript submissions failed to meet the basic standards in ‘theoretical motivation’. There are good tips and perspectives on how to produce a study of high quality. Should be interesting readings.

4. S. Philip Morgan, Diane N. Lye, and Gretchen A. Condran. 1988. “Sons, Daughters, and the Risk of Marital Disruption.” American Journal of Sociology 94: 110-129.
5. Xueguang Zhou, Wei Zhao, Qiang Li and He Cai. 2003. “Embeddedness and Contractual Relationships in China’s Transitional Economy.” American Sociological Review 68: 75-102.

· The two studies above are used to illustrate two research strategies— inductive versus deductive—in motivating research issues, design of research. Quick reading to get a general sense of the main issues and research design in these two studies.
