Conduct a review of the marketing & management literatures, seeking empirical studies that examine the concept of Distributive Justice (there are MANY, so be preparedcan include equity and/or equality).

Your scope includes intra-organizational. Your mission is to uncover every way distributive justice has been measured in those literatures since 1980. If you find a certain operationalization was first employed prior to 1980, go to that seminal article and include it as well. Be aware that this concept may appear under various labels beyond equity, equality or distributive justice. Collect all ways the concepts have been operationalized, along with the label and definition of the specific construct examined. The results of your search will be summarized in a written document, organized in whatever manner you choose. I require a chart, diagram, and a few tables that permit you to summarize your findings and communicate your conclusions succinctly. Your Operationalization Scavenger Hunt should include the following elements: 1. Research Log. As you research this concept, keep a log of the specific steps you take along the way. Record each action you take in your search. For example, if you start by conducting a search in an electronic database, record which database you use, what precise term(s) you search, what publications are searched, etc. Compiling a bullet list of steps is fine. 2. Construct Labels. The various labels used for concepts, noting which articles used each label (perhaps making reference to a table for details as appropriate). 3. Construct Definition. The definition(s) of the concepts, noting which articles used each definition (again, can be done by referencing an appropriate table maybe the same as above — and just summarizing in the text). Are there different dimensions of the construct or different types aspects of the construct that differ significantly? 4. Construct Operationalizations, The specific measurement scalesincluding itemsused to measure the various types, dimensions, etc. of the concepts, noting: a. Which articles used the same scale, adapted only for context; and b. Where each different scale originatedthe empirical study that first used it. c. Are there patterns that emerge different aspects that vary systematically? If so, in what way? 5. Possible Aliases & Similar Constructs. Through your hunt, you may have discovered other terms or concepts that seem to be possible aliases for the focal conceptthat is, two different labels for what appears in reality to be the same underlying construct. Briefly list those aliases and similar concepts, including definitions. Place the various concepts you found and these alias/similar concepts on a continuum or chart, visually depicting the extent to which these concepts are similar or different. 6. Conclusions. Summarize your conclusions about what you have found and your analysis of those findings. What are your observations? Do you detect any patterns? Inconsistencies? Similarities? Differences? Contradictions? Do the measurement scales fit the definitions of the concept they purportedly measure? Do they capture the full domain of the concepts? Do they capture some elements outside the domain of the concepts, as defined? Give examples and be specific, providing evidence for your conclusions. 7. Bibliography. A full bibliography of the articles included in your report. Organize your analysis and information in whatever written format is most effective given what you need to convey. The final report should include text summarizing analysis and conclusions, and various charts, tables, and/or figures presenting the elements required in this assignment.
