Abstract:This bachelorthesis has been written as follows: Prof. Mevr. Wilderom has worked on a scientific article that has been send to the Journal of Organizational Behavior (impactfactor of 3.854 in 2011). The dataset of the article was excellent, because of the use of different sources, a split-sample technique and lots of data. Still, the reviewers of the scientific journal said that the article needed improvements, in structure and in content. This is why the article was send back with some comments which had to be changed in order to get the article approved. After these changes, the article still wasn’t good enough in the eyes of the reviewers and was send back again. The reviewers saw the excellent data-set of the article but the article needed major changes to strengthen the paper. Because the head author of the article couldn’t fix these comments, Prof. Mrs. Wilderom came to me to assess these comments in a way that would satisfy the reviewers. I started with the easy comments to adapt on the standard which scientists of topjournals have. After each of the four rounds of improvements I made, Mrs. Wilderom made some track changes to give me information about the quality of changes that I made. In Appendix C the response to reviewers is attached, because all the comments of the reviewers need an explanation with what I did to fix the comments. The processing of the comments is not the only thing I did. The article was send to the journal in 2011. Because of this I had to search for new literature that was made in 2011 and 2012 and process these papers in the article. At last I made another analysis on the variable ‘cohesion’ because there is a lot of confusion about this variable in the scientific literature nowadays. I discussed this literature to make this a full bachelorthesis.
