This year, we’re spotlighting 10 of the most compelling academic articles and reports published in 2017, which delve into meaty topics such as venture backed startups, artificial intelligence, personal branding, and the spread of disinformation. We conferred with a small group of scholars to pick the ones we think you’ll want to know about and remember, this is just a sample.
