IIM-A students prefer journals to books: Study

Rather than books, journals are the food for thought for the research students of Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A). A recent study at the institute pointed out that 65% of the references in research works of the doctoral students of IIM-A are journals.

The study conducted by the librarian of the institute's Vikram Sarabhai Library, Anil Kumar, and professional assistant at the library, Mallikarjun Dora, revealed that out of the total references that students go through for writing their theses, only 19.5% are books.
