You should access scholarly material, including peer reviewed journal articles, chapters from edited books of readings, and books on specific human resource management (HRM) topics (at least 12 additional references required for the entire assignment). A good guide would be to use at least 3 additional references (ideally these would be journal articles from 2008-2013) for each of the case studies.
The reference lists found in your prescribed textbook, as well as other texts, are good places to start when searching for additional references.

In doing so, you are expected to use, and correctly cite, a range of relevant scholarly literature as evidence to justify and support your work.
